Say Goodbye to Unwanted Hair with IPL Treatment from Tokyo Belle

Hi everyone!
About two weeks ago, I got invited to try Tokyo Belle's eyelash extension by Kawaii Beauty Japan. However, my mom didn't allowed me to undergo eyelash extension so I asked Kak Tia from KBJ if it was possible to substitute it to the IPL treatment and fortunately, it's possible! I chose to go to Tokyo Belle Pacific Place since although it was said to be the 'smallest' salon among other salons of Tokyo Belle, it was the nearest salon from my home (even though it's still quite far). So, I asked ci Elin from Ngobrol Cantik if she wanted to go together and she said yes. Actually, she was scheduled to get her treatments done first before mine but since I arrived first, we exchanged ^^

First of all, what is IPL? IPL is the abbreviation of Intense Pulse Light or in another word, it's some kind of laser treatment. IPL treatment is used to remove unwanted hair on the body surface by prohibiting hair growth, creating small pores, and brightening the skin. However, the result of IPL treatment differs on each person, depending on one's hormonal condition and hair growth cycle.

Although it was quite small, Tokyo Belle Pacific Place was really cozy. The staffs were very friendly and helpful too. Oh, if you want to get either slimming treatment, eyelash extension, or IPL treatment like me, don't forget to book your appointment first prior to the date. It would be more convenient that way ^^

When I first arrived at the salon, I was asked to fill in a form on my personal data and to read the list of important things regarding the IPL treatment, such as I wasn't allowed to sweat too much on the day of the treatments, etc.

The treatment room I used, taken after I finished the treatment since I forgot to take the photo before the treatment
P.S. the blue-white box is actually the IPL equipment ^^

After that, I was escorted to the treatment room and was asked to change into kemben (I don't know what it's called in English :b) and put my belongings into a basket. Beside the treatment room I was escorted to, there were another two treatment rooms. Perhaps, one for eyelash extension and the other one for slimming treatment?

P.S. excuse my big arms ><

During the treatment, my eyes was closed with a towel and honestly, I almost fell asleep >< I couldn't see anything throughout the treatment and luckily, one of the staff kindly helped me to take the photos ^^

The treatment started with the staff cleaning my underarm using some kind of wet cloth (or was it tissue?) and the area of my underarm to be treated was marked using a highlighter (stabilo).

Then, the hair on my underarm was shaved with Panasonic electric razor. The staff said that electric razor reduces skin irritation risks, compared to manual razor or waxing. Once in a while, the staff would use a sheet of sticker to remove the shaved hair.

The staff applied gel on my underarm before the laser treatment. The laser treatment is used to create smaller pores, also to brighten the skin. The staff would test the laser treatment once and asked if it hurt before continuing. I didn't feel any pain at all but in the contrary, I felt ticklish :b The staff said that people who has larger pores tend to feel a little pain during the laser treatment, though.

The IPL treatment didn't even take 30 minutes for both of my underarm (it was about 15 minutes only). I think, you could even get this treatment done during your lunch break ^^
After all, I really love the result. The skin of my underarms looked brighter and felt softer. Also, the thick hairs were gone. I would really love to come back if the salon location were nearer from my home TT
By the way, you could get this treatment done with IDR 250.000 and currently, Tokyo Belle is having a buy 1 get 1 promotions for IPL treatments ^^

Panasonic electric razor used for the IPL treatments, retailed at IDR 350.000
