1st time IPL at Pink Parlour PH

For the longest time I have always love sugar wax as opposed to plucking and shaving. I seemed to became more careless now as I have been plucking for a while ever since I have worked at home so I thought of how about I get rid of the under arm hair permanently? I thought of doing an IPL Hair removal.

What is IPL? 
Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a technology used by cosmetic and medical practitioners to perform various skin treatments for aesthetic and therapeutic purposes, including hair removal. 

For IPL treatments they say that it takes an average of 8–10 treatments to remove most visible hair. I am not sure how it will work on me so I want to get an affordable option. I have seen a facebook ad for IPL treatment from Pink Parlour PH.

Why choose Pink Parlour Alpha Light Permanent Hair Removal? 
1. It’s effective 
2. No more burns 
3. BYE, BYE ingrown hairs (chicken skin) 
4. Save time & money 
5. Lightens the targeted area 

You will notice hair falling off within 7 days to 3 weeks after the treatment, but hair reduction may not be noticeable as we all have many cycles of actively growing hair. An average person may require 3 to 5 session before noticing any hair reduction. 

Duration: 30 
Min Price:₱1,500.00 Inclusive of taxes

I have went to their SM North Branch and have set up an appointment at 10AM. I was actually a bit late due to the distance, I was not able to compute the travel time correctly. I came from the south to try their service.

There was a wee bit of waiting time. There is only one customer when I came. During the treatment you will be asked to take off your top and use a towel so they can do the IPL. Thye've applied a cold gel and then proceeded in using their IPL device. It was warm and and all, not really tingly. There was no provided protective glasses so I assume that it is not needed. 

The attendant is a bit chatty and wants to upsell on their other underam treatments. It was really all good until I realized that the total treatment time lasted for only 14 minutes. One underarm was for 9 minutes then the other for 5 minutes. The whole underarm wasn't even fully treated with the IPL light. There was some parts missed. 

How much and where to buy?
I got for P1500 in one of their Facebook ads buy 1 take 1 promo

With all fairness with the treatment, I noticed hair didn't grow for about a week. I didn't experienced any hair falling from my underarms, I think that happens if I do the treatment for a couple more times. I honestly felt like I could have done it better if I was at home and got my own device. I wasn't satisfied with how long they did the treatment. I woke up real early to avail and yet I wasn't overall satisfied with it. My place is actually far from SM North so I think I won't be going for the 2nd IPL Treatment although I have already paid for it. It is just not worth the hassle.

For now I might go back to cold wax as it is more affordable and so far it works. I want to stop plucking as my armpit is getting a bit darker than before. I will also add an IPL at home device as my goal for next year.
