There are many hair removal options to choose from

As an Aesthetic Director with extensive experience in both Singapore and Australia, I’ve observed a wide array of preferences and practices when it comes to body hair removal. The decision to keep or remove body hair is deeply personal and varies greatly among individuals. For those who opt for removal, the choices are diverse, each with its unique benefits and considerations.

Shaving, for instance, is a quick and accessible method, but it often requires frequent upkeep. Waxing, on the other hand, provides longer-lasting results by removing hair from the root, though it can be more painful. Tweezing is ideal for small areas like eyebrows, offering precision but can be time-consuming for larger areas. Depilatory creams, while convenient, may not be suitable for all skin types and require patch testing to avoid adverse reactions.

Laser vs. Razor: The Investment Worth Making?

Advanced techniques like Laser and Super Hair Removal (SHR) sessions are increasingly popular for their long-term results. These methods, while more of an investment in terms of time and cost, can significantly reduce hair growth over time, offering a more permanent solution.

This blog post aims to guide to you hair removal for various body parts, from face to the bikini line.

With laser eyebrow shaping, you never have to worry about your eyebrows again. You can have your eyebrows shaped once with a series of treatments, preventing future hair growth from sprouting in certain areas ever again.

Hair Removal for Brows

Tweezing Brows

Prior to you begin plucking, mark where you desire your brows to begin and also finish with a white pencil. This prevents overplucking your brows, which might lead to an undesirable outcome. The pros’ ideal method: Hold the pencil against the side of your nose and put a line where it strikes your brow; turn the pencil diagonally so it touches the outer corner of your eye and also mark that spot.

Lastly, placed a dot simply over the outside of your iris– that should be the acme of your arch. Draw the pencil along the lower edge of your brows, linking the three lines, and after that tweeze only the strays that grow beyond them.

Waxing Brows

Don’t try to wax your eyebrows yourself, and don’t let unqualified friends do it either. Even a small mistake with the wax can mess up your eyebrows quickly. It’s best to leave this to a professional.

Threading Brows

Eyebrow threading has been around much longer than the treatment’s recent rise would have you think. The technique has been used in parts of Asia for centuries to remove unwanted eyebrow hairs. A twisted cotton thread is used to gently pull the hair from the follicle. It may sound tedious, but with an experienced eyebrow threader you can expect to be in and out of the salon within a half hour (or less).

Laser or SHR hair removal for Brows

Laser eyebrow shaping allows you to shape your eyebrows permanently with a series of quick 15-20-minute treatments. The laser is used on the brow line and areas above and beside the brow, but not below it to avoid any risk to the eyes. Protective goggles should be worn during the procedure. Lower energy is recommended for the brows to prevent burns.

At Wellaholic, we recommend using lower energy for the brows to prevent the occurrence of burns.

Both laser and SHR hair removal can be effective for upper lip hair removal, providing longer-lasting results than temporary hair removal methods like waxing or shaving

Hair Removal for Upper Lips

Waxing for Upper Lips

Upper lip waxing is a common hair removal method for women. Hot wax is applied and quickly removed, pulling out hair from the roots. It gives smoother, longer-lasting results than shaving or creams, and exfoliates the skin. However, it can be painful and cause skin issues if not done right. It’s important to go to a reputable salon with a skilled esthetician.

Laser or SHR hair removal for Upper Lips

As an Aesthetic Director with extensive experience in the field, I’ve observed the evolving landscape of hair removal technologies. Laser and SHR (Super Hair Removal) stand out as two of the most prominent methods, especially for delicate areas like the upper lips. In my journey, I’ve seen laser hair removal’s effectiveness, where a concentrated beam of light precisely targets hair follicles, disrupting their growth cycle. This method is quite efficient in reducing hair growth over time.

On the other hand, SHR, a fusion of laser and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology, adopts a different approach. It gradually heats the hair follicles, leading to a reduction in hair regrowth. What sets SHR apart, in my experience, is its use of lower energy levels yet higher frequency of pulses. This combination tends to be gentler on the skin compared to traditional IPL, making it a preferred choice for many seeking a balance between efficacy and comfort.

If you are looking specifically at hair removal for your upper lips, chin, side burns or any facial areas, you can consider Wellaholic’s SHR for Small Areas, which start from $55 onwards.

Wellaholic's 12-month SHR Hair Removal for Underarms is only $169, making it a popular option for many Singapore customers.

Hair Removal for Underarms or Armpits

Shaving for Underarms

Shaving is a common method for underarm hair removal. The process begins with lathering the area with shaving lotion or soap to lubricate the skin. The razor is then carefully moved upward, downward, and sideways to address all the different hair growth patterns. However, as anyone who has ever shaved knows, stubble can quickly return, sometimes within a matter of hours.

To prevent nicks and potential infections or inflammation in the hair follicles, it’s recommended to use a sharp razor. According to Sizanne, a hair removal specialist at Wellaholic, changing the blade every few shaves is also crucial. This ensures a clean, smooth shave and reduces the risk of skin irritation.

Waxing for Underarms

Waxing is an effective method for underarm hair removal that can keep stubble at bay for several days, rather than just hours. It’s a straightforward process that can be easily done at home without the need for shaping. Wendy, a hair removal expert at Wellaholic, recommends using a strip-less wax. This type of wax acts like shrink wrap, effectively encasing each hair.

However, it’s important to work in small sections for the best results. Taking some painkillers an hour before waxing can also help manage any discomfort. Underarm hair is typically thick and grows in multiple directions, which can make its removal particularly painful. Therefore, taking these precautions can make the waxing process more bearable.

Laser or SHR Hair Removal for Underarms

Talk to anyone that’s wielded a laser as well as they’ll tell you that the underarms produce the most effective outcomes; the hair vanishes the fastest as well as keeps away the lengthiest, with many individuals reporting that they have little or no hair development in the location years after quitting treatment.

To optimize results and also minimize issues such as burns, treatment from a professional specialist is always favored. To get to that factor, you’ll need about six to twelve sessions. The hair will weaken an increasing number of with each session, and when hairs do start to re-emerge, the occasional maintenance session (once every couple of months) is usually enough to maintain it away. Wellaholic’s 12-month SHR Hair Removal for Underarms is only $169, making it a popular option for many Singapore customers.

The SHR process is more mild on the skin, making it excellent for sensitive areas such as Brazilian Hair Removal

Hair Removal for Bikini Area

Waxing for Bikini area

Though you can use basically any type of hair-removal technique on this area with some degree of success, waxing can likewise be another excellent option. Whether you favor to leave the waxing in the hands of an expert or you feel up to doing the act in your home, the initial step is to stand out some panadol or painkillers an hour in advance.

Laser or SHR Hair Removal for Bikini area

When it comes to eliminating unwanted hair in your private areas and get rid of your pubic hairs , laser hair removal is the best solution. Shaving around your bikini or butts is tricky work and often results in agonizing side effects like cuts, bumps, and ingrown hairs. Brazilian Waxing is another popular approach but involves ripping and tearing at your hair roots with hot wax, which can be rather uncomfortable, to say the least. Brazilian laser hair removal is an effective method to eliminate undesirable pubic hair – without any razors or hot wax. It also fixes the complicated concern of reaching around back blindly with razors to catch every last roaming hair.

Bikini? Brazilian? Unveiling the Hair Removal Truth 

Not to get puzzled with a swimwear laser treatment, a Brazilian gets rid of all the hair in your pubic area where a bikini laser treatment just consists of the sides of your pubic area. We may call it a “Brazilian,” however the customised of eliminating all the hair from your most intimate areas hails back to 400 BC. Even the ancients thought about a clean look down there to be aesthetically pleasing.

Wellaholic’s SHR Brazilian/Bikini hair removal starts from $149 per session for both front and back private/pubic areas.

The Most Painful Body Areas to Get Laser Hair Removal

Hair Removal for the Legs

Waxing your legs every 3-4 weeks is recommended for teenage girls in order to maintain smooth skin and prevent ingrown hairs.

Shaving for Legs

Seventy percent of females are faithful razor customers, according to one market survey, as well as completely reason: Shaving is fast, easy, inexpensive, and efficient on the legs. Make certain to use cutting lotion because it will squeeze out an added millimeter or 2 of hair if you smooth it against the grain as you use it. And arm yourself with a new, multiblade razor every 5 shaves to obtain the best outcomes and protect against irritability.

Waxing for legs

The pain level might be greater, yet the results of waxing can last weeks as well as, in the summer, you might not intend to deal with bristle that begins turning up the day after a fresh shave. Just like other locations, use the wax in the direction of hair growth, then pull strips off in the opposite instructions. Work in little areas– an optimum of three inches in length– to decrease pain.

Depilatory for legs

While these can be utilized on any type of location of the body, they’re most reliable on finer hair, making the legs a better bet than the bikini line. Since you’ll be managing a great deal of lotion and also the whole treatment can obtain pretty messy, it’s best to use it right prior to taking a shower, after that make use of a clean cloth to remove it all under warm water. If you have dermatitis or sensitive skin, we constantly recommends always screening the item in a small location. Some depilatories can cause a contact dermatitis that can be scratchy.

Laser or SHR Hair Removal for Legs

SHR’s Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT) In-Motion laser hair removal technology is a breakthrough in customer comfort and effectiveness of treatments. SHR or Super Hair Removal technology heats the skin gently through the melanin and the stem cells with low energy but high frequency. SHR uses only 50% of the energy for permanent hair removal. The remaining 50% is absorbed into the stem cells responsible for hair production, making laser or SHR hair removal an ideal option for hair removal for your legs.
