The sun has been shining bright lately. In fact, we’ve been having the normal Philippine heat this week. I’m sure some of you have been planning your summer getaway already and there’s no better way to embrace the sun than having a nice clean feeling down there.
Strip, the global authority in hair removal, now offers IPL Ace: a semi-permanent 2-in-1 treatment that reduces hair growth and rejuvenates skin by stimulating collagen production thereby tightening it and lightening it. Heaven sent, don’t you think?
Some 5-6 years ago, when I had my UA IPL done, the staff would always be amazed on how quiet I am during the entire procedure. I also hear the same compliments when I would have my monthly BZ waxing sessions. I guess these girls are used to having clients ouch-ing here and there.
To tell you the truth, BZ IPL is not new to me–even the “pitik” sensation or the burnt hair smell during the procedure. I’ve completed my UA IPL in 2009 and I’ve already had BZ IPL some 1-2 years ago. But I had to stop because it was too painful–and to think I already have a high tolerance for pain. I’m not scaring you but I was only able to endure 2 sessions and I never came back. Lol!
So when I was given a chance to try out Strip’s new IPL Ace, I didn’t hesitate to go for Brazilian (BZ) because I knew I was in good hands. 🙂
In choosing a waxing salon, you should always check out their hygiene standards. Hair removal means open pores… and open pores would mean you are more susceptible to bacteria penetrating your body. Having said that, I really appreciate waxing salons that are strict in having their therapists wear gloves all throughout the procedure.
What I like about Strip is that I notice that they don’t scrimp on using disposable wipes. I was observing my Strip-erella, Ate Krissy, and I noticed that she even used wet ones when she was adjusting the knob of the radio, just to make sure her clean Latex-gloved hands would touch nothing but my coochie.
Here are short clips to explain what really went down there.
I spent about 1.5 hours to finish the two procedures but I enjoyed every bit of it. I noticed that Strip had three full rounds of IPL shots in the area but there was NO PAIN AT ALL! I’m not kidding! I also noticed that there wasn’t any smell of burnt hair during the procedure. This just shows that Strip’s IPL procedure is really different from what you may know or you have previously tried. I was telling Ate Krissy that I was trying NOT to fall asleep since my IPL Ace felt really comfortable.
Strip’s IPL Ace not only removes hair and rejuvenates the area, but also helps the reduction of the appearance of fine lines, broken capillaries, and stretch marks.
After the procedure, Ate Krissy applied Ice Cream on the treated area to moisturize, soothe, and calm the skin. Ate Krissy also gave me this mini booklet for post-treatment care. It is important to note that you would normally have to have 6-8 sessions to achieve 80% hair reduction. Skin rejuvenation results can be observed immediately after the first treatment and are more noticeable usually after 4 to 6 sessions. IPL Ace interval for BZ is 5-6 weeks.
So, if you are planning to get rid of your hair down there right before summertime, I can’t think of any other hair removal procedure that can top Strip’s IPL Ace. Having firsthand experience with regular IPL and Strip’s IPL Ace, I can definitely vouch for Strip’s. Plus, you’d get your money’s worth since Strip does not scrimp on the “number of shots” as compared to other IPL or laser hair removal centers.
