Since getting into the wonderful world of blogging, I’ve become more interested and open in trying out new things – beauty products, treatments and the likes. And whenever I get invited to experience an innovative procedure, I’m almost always there. Because it’s more than just a time to feel pampered, I also feel so good knowing that I’m taking care of my body. The latest I’ve tried is the Strip White Laser Therapy from Strip: Ministry of Waxing. Curious? Interested? Continue reading for the complete scoop…
Strip White provides a non-invasive rejuvenation while delivering textural improvement, pore size reduction, brightening of skin pigmentation, reduction of fine lines and facial hair and fine hair removal in other parts of the body. I’ve already done whitening laser treatments previously and I love what they do to the skin, so I knew Strip White would continue the good results.
It can treat areas such as, but not limited to: face, neck, underarms, elbows, kneecaps, brazilian, and buttocks. I feel like my face, which unfortunately overwhelmed with acne scars, need Strip White the most. But since I had a meeting immediately following my appointment, I saved it for another time and chose the underarm treatment instead.
My underarms are now hair-free (again, thanks to lasers!) but I want to address the texture, reduce the natural folds and lighten the shadows and slight pigmentation. Underarm issues are still considered “sensitive” topics, but I’m still going to talk about them with you. Sensitive or not. Seriously, aren’t you happy you found this review? Haha!
The treatment itself takes place in only one room and only at their SM Megamall branch at the moment, so I suggest calling beforehand, just in case. Like most Strip visits, the room was in pristine condition when I entered and my aesthetician made sure I was comfortable.
First, she cleansed my underarms to make sure all traces of dirt, sweat and deodorant were gone to prep for the laser. The selective energy of the laser targets only collagen, fibers or pigment; it didn’t burn or sting at all, it just felt like quick warm passes. I was done in 10 minutes tops, that was both underarms already and with no downtime at all.
Although somewhat red and the treated areas were quite shiny after the procedure, the lightening effect was evident. I didn’t put on deodorant for the next 3 days to give my skin time to heal. A week later, my underarms are really smooth, shadows are reduced, and I can tell they are a shade lighter at least. I’m so happy!
Ang saya saya ko naman!
The cost of Strip White Laser Therapy varies per body part and is available upon request. Call their SM Megamall branch (Phone: (02) 531 4083). Pricey? Yes, I can say that. Worth it? Absolutely! I consider it as long-term investment. Haha! Overall, I can’t wait to be back. I promised myself it’s my face’s turn next time.
