I went a week before to have an appointment the next day (It's just as fine to call instead of going to have an appointment scheduled). But they said they were fully-booked already and the next slot available is Tuesday (Sale season kasi sa SM that time). No problems with the booking.
Upon arrival sa shop, I told the clerk that I have the 3pm appointment. She confirmed and then I handed one voucher. Then, she told me that the preferred number of vouchers per session is 5 para ma-cover yung buong armpit area. And I was like "WTF? I only have 2 vouchers" in my head of course. I was a bit disappointed because I've had IPL before in another clinic and that time, I had unlimited shots a session. She was asking if I want to buy 3 more vouchers (they will purchase on my behalf). In the end, I only used 2 vouchers.
I went into a room at the inner part of the shop. Was asked to remove my shirt and put provided towel around the body and I lied down the bed.
1) Cleanse. She used damp facial foam rub it gently against my armpit to wet it first. Used liquid soap and massage my armpits with her bare hands.
2) Protect. Before the shot was done, a transparent and thick gel was applied. The reason being that you may get your skin burned at the shot. Just a way for the light to not directly hit the skin. She also put protective glasses on my eyes with folded tissue beneath of course so that the eyes won't be affected by the shot.
3) Shot. It's like a barcode gun attached to some machine. And it really feels like nothing. Parang flash lang from photobooths.
4) Remove the gel using the same facial foam.
- The session was short. I was in the shop for like 10 mins or less.
- The place is simple, neat and values customer's privacy.
- I think na-cover naman ang whole underarm kahit 4 shots per armpit lang ang na-claim ko.
- I've tried IPL before for around 3 sessions and it really lessened the number of hair on my underarm.
- The number of shots was not unlimited. Yes, nakalagay sa voucher na 2 shots lang per armpit on both armpits per voucher. So napilitan akong gumamit ng 2 vouchers. Hopefully next time pag nagpa-promo ulit sila, 1 voucher per session na lang para less hassle on the customer side sa pagbili and print ng vouchers.
Real Deal and Other Deals
Again, Metrodeal's fake advertisement saying it's 3000php but in reality, it's really just 1800php per session. And yung 1800php, unlimited shots pa. Unlike Metrodeal's voucher, preferrably you will spend 495 for 10 shots per armpit for both armpits.
unlimited shots until whole area covered:
6,500php for 10 sessions
5,400php for 8 sessions
4,000php for 4 sessions
