Strip - Pioneer in Waxing
Plagued with hairy legs, arms, armpits or privates? Don’t worry, because you’re not alone. While it’s great to embrace your natural self, sometimes you just really get the urge to shave and wax it all off so you can experience what it’s like to be hairless. I feel this way about my legs and my armpits. Luckily I was blessed with arm hairs that were finer and wasn’t very obvious so I never felt any need to get rid of it. However, the problem that comes with shaving is that over time, you realise that you’re agitating your skin with rough razors and causing micro-cuts that eventually leave semi-permanent dark abrasions. True, they sell whitening deodorants in the market but usually they cannot revert your skin to its original tone and well, waxing can be painful. However, with Strip’s AFT technology, you can rid yourself of any unwanted hair! The AFT (Advanced Fluorescence Technology) can actually eliminate up to 80% of your hair with comfort and minimal risk.
Furthermore, Strip can be considered the pioneer in waxing services in Singapore, who made waxing safe, hygienic and classy when it was deemed dodgy and painful! They have top hygiene standards so you never have to worry because you know you're always in safe hands, especially if you wish to get treatments done for your privates. Speaking of that, they are extreme advocates for vulva care and have products and treatments specifically for that! ladies, if you wish to pamper yourselves, you know where to go.
The place looked good, clean and modern. It shared an outlet with Browhaus i’m Funan Mall and I felt at ease approaching the staff. They seemed very knowledgeable and when it was my turn, i was led into this private room with the hair removal therapist. She laid me down on the bed and opened up a sealed plastic packet that contained a razor, towel and all the other equipment needed. I felt at ease that she was using new equipment instead of ones that have been used on others before, especially since Strip provides hair removal on privates.
She started off by shaving my hair with a razor very gently before dropping a dollop of cold gel on me. She spread the cold gel evenly and started up the AFT machine to zap away my hairs. Since this targets the root of the hair, over time, the hair will not grow as quickly as before. I liked the idea of this semi permanent hair removal! She used the machine on my leg, ensuring she aimed at the cold gel and it was painless! Other than a little bit of heat, it was extremely bearable. In fact, I wasn’t worried at all! And this all took maybe less than 30 minutes, which in my opinion, was really quick! After the session, she moisturised my leg and my leg felt really smooth. However, i understood that for the AFT treatment to really show the results of slower growing hair, I had to go back for treatments but I didn’t mind. The session was quick, easy and painless after all! Furthermore, the therapist made me feel at ease and comfortable. I will most definitely be going back to this pioneer in waxing services!
