Bubye shavers and epilator.

Remember this horrifying scene?

I am glad to say that the above will not happen to me again. Ever.

A girl deserves not to worry so much about the world. Especially not about hair sprouting out from her armpits. I don’t even understand why we have hair there. Any explanation for armpit hair?

I do know of someone who does not have any pit hair. My paternal granny. She doesn’t ever need to shave or pluck or whatever. I’m short of asking her whether she has hair elsewhere, but I think it’s not an appropriate question to be posed to a 66 yr old. Not everyone is lucky like my granny, and regrettably I have not inherited her genes.

I’m sick of it. It doesn’t help that this getting-older-business seems to make these unwanted hairs even harder to manage. Is it just me or do you find yours growing more and coarser too? -_-

And the next thing I’m telling you…is a very significant event of my life. Hear this, I’ve gotten the buggers zapped of at Bella Skin Care.

Bella Skin Care.

It’s called Depilux™ Hair Free System. Basically, it disables the hair roots and prevents them from growing back. Pulsing light is transmitted via the melanin pigment in the hair down into each follicle and uses heat to disable the hair-growth mechanism. So it’s especially effective for Asians since we have darker hair.

During a consultation session with one of the hair removal professionals.

It’s been 3 weeks since I got my first treatment and I’m loving it. My pit hairs have gotten so fine they’re hardly visible anymore. I really can’t wait to go back for my second treatment. I’m pretty sure I’d be off the programme by the third zapping.

How about pain?

Hardly. If you’re used to plucking them buggers out, trust me it’s less painful than that. Of course, I’m only speaking from personal experience. If you have especially thick and dark hair, the sensations will bound to intensify. The best way to describe what I went through: A series of hard pinching on armpits.

How long does it take?

I was in and out of there in 15 minutes, including stripping down and getting prep-up with special cooling gel.

Truth is, you don’t have to strip down. I just did because I saw a robe so I went commando straight on. Don’t be a village bum like me, please.

Does it really work?

Yes! The hairs get finer after each treatment till they just vanish altogether.

Does it improve the quality of my life?

Hell yeah! Never again will I commit faux pas ala Julia Roberts.

Worth it?

Absolutely! Think of the collective pain, money and time spent on hair removal. No more. Shaving, epilating, messy cream and painful waxing, none of those bullshit anymore. It’s now humanly possible to just throw on a sleeveless dress and walk out of your house, worry free.

Feel free to ask any question in the comment section, I’ll try to answer the best I can.

Now excuse me while I book for my second appointment :)
