I’m somewhat self-conscious about my body hair, particularly in my underarms. I had tried shaving and depilatory lotions to remove hair, but they were all temporary fixes that left me with stubble and skin irritation. I needed a more permanent solution to my unwanted body hair, so I decided to try laser hair removal and armpit waxing at HairFree Laser Studion at Vibo Place in Escario, Cebu City.
I researched different spas and clinics in my area and finally found this clinic that offers premium laser hair removal and waxing services. I booked an appointment and eagerly awaited the day of my treatment.
Earlier today, I went to the studio for my appointment. TBH I arrived there with excitement and a little bit of nervousness. Good thing the receptionist Cy and esthetician MJ greeted me warmly and explained the process of laser hair removal and armpit waxing in detail. I felt reassured by their professionalism and expertise.
Before the treatment, I filled out the consultation forms. These are being used by estheticians for collecting information regarding relevant health history and the preferences of a customer like myself…
Waxing and laser treatments
I started with the armpit waxing first. The esthetician used high-quality wax and gently applied it to my underarms. She then quickly and precisely removed the wax, along with the unwanted hair, leaving my skin smooth and soft. I was pleasantly surprised by how zero discomforts I felt during the process, thanks to the esthetician’s skillful technique!
After the waxing, it was time for the laser hair removal.
The esthetician used Elysian-pro which emitted gentle pulses of light to target the hair follicles in my upper lip and bikini line. I felt a slight tingling sensation during the treatment, but it was very tolerable. The entire process was quick and painless.
I completed my first session in about an hour. I initially expected it would take 2 to three hours but it was fast.
I left the spa feeling delighted with the results. I already noticed the difference after the laser treatment and waxing, definitely better than shaving — I have no skin irritation. I am left with smooth skin.
I will continue my laser hair removal sessions as recommended by the esthetician, and I am hopeful that with each session, the results will improve. The esthetician reassured me that after a few months of consistent treatments, my upper lip, bikini line, and underarms will be virtually hair-free, and I would no longer need to worry about shaving or dealing with unwanted body hair.

Should you go for laser hair removal?
People of various genders, ages, and backgrounds may choose to get their body hair lasered. Some common reasons why people opt for laser hair removal include:
- Convenience: Many people find the regular maintenance of other hair removal methods like shaving, waxing, or plucking to be time-consuming and inconvenient. Laser hair removal offers a more long-term solution, as it can reduce hair growth in treated areas, saving individuals time and effort in their grooming routines.
- Aesthetic preferences: Some individuals may prefer smooth, hair-free skin for personal or aesthetic reasons. Laser hair removal can provide a way to achieve the desired appearance by reducing or eliminating body hair in areas such as the underarms, legs, bikini line, chest, back, and face.
- Medical reasons: Some individuals may have medical conditions that result in excessive or unwanted body hair growth, such as hirsutism or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Laser hair removal can be a viable option for managing and reducing the hair growth associated with these conditions.
- Sports or athletic activities: Athletes, particularly those involved in sports such as swimming, cycling, and bodybuilding, may choose to undergo laser hair removal to improve their performance or appearance. Hair-free skin can reduce drag in the water or help define muscle tone, which can be beneficial in competitive sports.
- Gender affirming procedures: Some transgender individuals may seek laser hair removal as part of their gender transition journey. It can help them achieve their desired gender presentation by reducing or eliminating body hair in areas that may cause gender dysphoria.
It’s important to note that laser hair removal is not suitable for everyone and may not be recommended for individuals with certain medical conditions or skin types. Consulting with a qualified medical professional or licensed esthetician is essential to determine if laser hair removal is a safe and suitable option for an individual’s specific needs and circumstances.
