REVIEW: Hair Removal Treatment using the Solera Prowave IPL machine
With so many options nowadays for hair removal, from laser to IPL, and choosing a treatment to do can be a little confusing. I’ve tried a few myself and personally, I find the laser hair removal the most effective so far. My leg hair were almost gone in three treatments whereas I still had a little underarm hair after four IPL sessions.
So, when IYAC Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Clinic invited me to try their new Solera Prowave IPL machine, I was keen to finally eradicate my last few strands of underarm hair as well as test out this new machine.
After shaving my underarms, my therapist slathered them with a lovely scented cold gel and gave me eye protection before she started the IPL treatment. There was a bright light followed by a mild “rubberband snapping” feeling on the treatment areas. My therapist went over my underarms in a succession of shots quickly and before I know it, I was done. She then wiped my underarms clean of the gel and applied a healing cream to soothe the treatment areas.
Most areas require three to six treatments, and this depends on the individual’s hair thickness, areas treated and hair growth cycle.
