Well, it’s been a long overdue, but I am excited to share with you about the Blogger’s Event I attended in Bonifacio High street last September 24. I was invited to attend the soft opening of Hair X Hair Removal, Auricle wellness SPA. During the event they introduces an affordable and comfortable innovation — IPL, stands for Intense Pulsed Light. IPL hair removal is not new in the cosmetic industry here in the Philippines.
In getting rid of the unwanted hair, we have tons of normal options. (Plucking, shaving, waxing, and DIY (do-it-yourself) depilatory creams? or any cheap alternatives (will do)?) As a dark-hairy Filipina, body hair (unwanted hair) and how to remove it has been a preoccupation of mine since high school. I can’t even count the numerous nicks and cuts from shaving endured from dull razors, the painful aftermath of ingrown hairs, the red bumps and the overall itchiness. Ouch! There had to be a better way. And with IPL, I was hoping to find it.
It just happened that we don’t consider IPL for we know that it have always been an expensive alternative. Oops! Sorry, correction it “used” to be expensive but not anymore. Hair X, the latest neighborhood hair removal clinic in the country, aimIts to make IPL hair removal (and laser-based skin and facial care) accessible, affordable, and available to more Filipinos.Ms. Glenda Gao, managing director of HairX, (she uses IPL too), shared how she became a fan of IPL hair removal and thought of making it affordable to Filipinos without skimping on quality. They are still trying to branch out all around Metro Manila (They plan to have 25 branches in 5 years). If by chance you are by BGC Forbes Town Center try to visit and check out their services.
With affordable clinics popping up all over the city, Hair X is the clinic you should definitely visit and try. So, for those of you thinking of trying out Hair X IPL hair removal, here are the things you need to know for embarking on your own IPL journey:
Hair X makes available a range of affordable programs and payment options for value-seeking Filipino men and women who want to permanently remove hair easily, painlessly, and professionally. It is run by a highly trained medical team using the latest in first world equipment, techniques, and procedures, and is housed in an antiseptically clean and relaxed environment. One of Hair X’s brand new, cutting edge pulsed light technology is called Forma IPL System.
Forma IPL System features a dual pulsing technology, making the hair removal procedure very comfortable. It emits a unique flash, characterized by a very short pulse duration and high energy at the same time. These standards optimize the way energy hits the hair root and renders the treatment efficient, safe and painless. So even if you have a fair skin and blonde hair or olive skin with dark hair, the machine can effectively zap the hair away without
Other temporary hair removal procedures are cheaper, they still leave the skin with unnecessary trauma and negative side effects such as ingrown hair, darkening of underarms, inflammation, and, at worst, infection. IPL renders less damage to parts of the skin not included the treatment, which means faster healing. It uses intense pulsating beams of light to remove unwanted hair after regular sessions, effectively slows hair growth, and lessens the negative side effects caused by other short-term procedures. (Oh No! We don’t want that!)
With Hair X’s advanced IPL equipment administered by professionals at best value packages, more Filipinos can now afford to have hair-free smooth and blemish-free skin all over. We’re not just talking about the price here but the quality at the same time. The machines are all imported from Israel, which is a country known for its top-notch laser hair removal technology.
Aside from hair removal, Hair X also offers facial services in the form of its signature facial and the Aqua Peel treatment, which cleanses, exfoliates, extracts, and hydrates the skin using an especially designed machine that removes impurities and infuses treatments. They also have waxing services (light con precision wax – it is PAINLESS ).
Staying true to its passion of making hair removal affordable, accessible, and available, IPL hair removal starts at P300 per session.
I’m sure you’ll love Hair X Clinic even more because of it’s relaxing spa-like environment. There is a elegance, simplicity and the way in which a simple wood frame has been used to demarcate the area is remarkable. A bit of green in the corner adds a touch of charm and make it picture-perfect. Ultra-minimalism in Japanese style is my thing, so this place tugs my heart and made me want to stay a little bit longer.
