G ood day lovely readers!!!
Today’s post is a review of my hair removal journey with Bon Aesthetics.
Bon Aesthetics’ specialty is in Super Hair Removal (SHR). This is extremely different from the commonly seen IPL treatments that most salons offer.
The difference is HUGE!
If you’ve done IPL before, you will know that a gel must be applied onto your skin before the IPL shots can be delivered. (This is to reduce the pain from the IPL shots on the skin).
SHR at Bon Aesthetics doesn’t require the use of any gel at all. (So no icky sticky gel on skin to deal with afterwards) The skin is simply cleansed (and shaved if needed) and you’re ready to go! This is cos the contact piece that touches your skin is COLD so that while the light is delivered, your skin is cooled simultaneously.
For me, there was hardly any feeling at all. Nothing unbearable, nothing warm or painful. If anything at all it was actually cooling and comfortable cos of the contact piece =P
The second major difference is the time it takes to cover the treatment. I can safely say that the treatment time for SHR is more than halve that of IPL. Check out Bon Element’s youtube video and you’ll get what I mean.
There is no need to wait for the pulses like in IPL. The system just flashes and a large area of skin can be covered within a short time.
My SHR Journey since 2016
I began my SHR journey with Bon Aesthetics since the start of 2016. I started out with treatment for lower half arms, lower half legs, and brazilian areas.
Prior to that, I’ve had mainly done IPL at my brazilian area and only depilated my arms and legs via waxing. I did 6 treatments within about 5 months (each treatment spaced about 3-4 weeks apart) and started to see improvements in hair reduction.
At the end of the 6 treatments, hair was growing out very slowly, there was much fewer hairs and the only stubborn hairs at the brazilian area were the “lips” area.
As you know, hair removal is an ongoing journey and because I was really satisfied with the results I was getting, I extended my package and even included my upper thighs for treatment this time.
I am eternally grateful to Bon Aesthetics for keeping me fuzz-free through many milestone events in my life e.g. acting, TV, modelling, Miss Universe 2016… etc
This was the very photo I sent in for my Miss Universe 2016 pre-auditions =) No visible hair spotted!
When I began my Miss Universe Singapore 2016 journey, I went full out and extended my package to then include the full upper arms too! 💪🏼 And don’t you love their cool safety goggles 😎
Making appointments was extremely easy also. They can be contacted via sms/whatsapp which IMO is one of the best ways to secure a slot quickly and without hassle.
These are pictures from D-DAY. Thank you again Bon Aesthetics!
So… at this point, most of my lower legs and arms have become almost hairless and rate of hair regrowth is really slow. The Brazilian area is about 90% hairless while the upper arms and legs have definitely shown good results in hair reduction. Not to forget though, that I started the SHR for my upper arms and legs later than the rest of the body.
Once again, hair removal is ongoing and even when you have achieved the desired state of being hair-free, maintenance treatments (spaced about 1-2 months apart depending on individual) might still be required.
As for me, I look forward to every SHR session because I find the treatment very pampering in fact!
