Feature: Strip Ice Advanced Semi-Permanent Hair Removal

Tuesday, February 10, 2015

     Hello dearies! I'm so excited to share with you this post because it's my first time to have an IPL service and before I muse my experience I want to say loud and proud that STRIP ICE is the B-E-S-T! If my underarms could talk, prolly it will thank me because I braved this almost painless awesome procedure of semi-permanent hair removal :)

     I was invited last December by Strip Ministry of Waxing to try their new, revolutionary solution for semi-permanent hair removal. Yes, it's semi-permanent dearies (don't be fooled by the word permanent hair removal) because as long as we're alive, there will always be hair growth. But fret not to try Strip Ice Advanced Semi-Permanent Hair Removal because hair growth will be delayed, the strands will be finer or less visible and a percentage of hair may not-regrow. Who doesn't want to have an almost flawless underarms? Of course almost all of us girls do! Click CONTINUE READING to know more about STRIP ICE and why I highly recommend it :)

     The event was held at Strip Mega Fashion Hall branch last December. Ms. Monique introduced their newest machine and the machine that will be used in all Strip branches for their semi-permanent laser hair removal. We had a mini program during the event but the main agenda of the day was to try Strip Ice. There's a long queue and everyone was giddy to try this promising IPL (intense pulse light) service from Strip.

     Fast forward, I set an appointment last January and had the best underarm service I have to date. Before I was introduced to Strip Ice, my method of removing underarm hair is through cold waxing. Waxing has advantages and disadvantage that's why for a busy mom like me trying a faster and fuss-free hair removal service is a must. Here's a little tour of Strip Ministry of Waxing SM Megamall Fashion Hall branch treatment room. This is their wax and polish treatment room. The Strip Ice machine is located on the other rooms and my bad that I wasn't able to take photos of it :(

     Their treatment room is very clean and in order. I love the posh interior and color combination inside the room :) I feel safe and secured the first time I entered the room and it's very relaxing too :)

     Aside from IPL service, Strip is also famous for their flavored/season waxes. So to all who are loyal to waxing service, you must try Strip because of their 'No Double Dipping' commandment. This mantra ensures each customer that hygiene is given 100% importance together with the speed and quality of service.  Their hygiene pack is legendary because each customer receives a new set of individually sealed pouch containing disposable waxing equipment (including gloves, face masks, pH balance wet wipes and spatulas).

Their latest wax offering is the cranberry wax launched in time for Christmas 2014

     Strip is also famous for their menu of secret-recipe lotions that treat waxed areas with an unrivalled tenderness as well as amazing post-wax products. They also have new products in the name of SCO Sun Lover (sunscreen), SCO Peace+ (anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory), and SCO Ace Cream (whitening/lightening/brightening cream). All these products are highly recommended for sensitive skin and results are very promising :)

     So here's a little story of my Strip Ice Advanced Semi-Permanet Hair Removal treatment. I have to say my apologies first because I don't have photos of my pre and post treatment but I will post a photo of my underarm that is hair-free for almost a month now!

     STRIP ICE TREATMENT is an advanced semi-permanent hair reduction method where beams of specially filtered light are used to disintegrate hair from the root. New hair growth is delayed and a percentage of hair may not re-grow. Soprano Ice is the latest machine of Strip.

This treatment promises to:
•Faster sessions
•Faster and better results 
•Zeroes in on hair even if it’s the same color as skin 

•Provides you with a semi-permanent hair reduction solution
•Lightens pigmentation
•Helps to reduce the occurrence of ingrown hair substantially

     The promises and benefits are true after one session! Yes, I'm proud to say that the session lasted only 15 minutes including the 1st procedure which was shaving of my 3- month old underarm hair (say ewww now!). First timers and those on their next sessions are required to shave their hair so that the roots are still there. That's the reason for IPL hair removal, beams of specially filtered light are used to disintegrate hair from the root.

     Next step, application of a cool gel then cool head of the hand held device was placed on my underarms. I can say that the procedure is pain-less and I did not feel the barely 'heat' feeling that my attendant said I will feel during procedure. 

     After the treatment, Ice Cream was applied to my underarms for soothing and lasting moisture. The next day after the treatment my underarms look so smooth. On the third day I started to worry because I see my underarm hair already growing BUT on the fourth and fifth day it's starting to shed on its own. I was amazed that it continuously fall off one by one :) It's almost a month now and my pits are hair-free. As in no hair growth at all :) The hubby noticed my underarms and said it's my best-looking underarms all these years. Hahaha! 

     I SUPER LOVE the effects of my first Strip Ice treatment on my underarms. First session showed a big difference on my underarm's hair growth. There's a big difference from my old waxing sesh! I will definitely be back to Strip to avail my second up to sixth session. Definitely worth every peso that I'll be spending. Oh by the way, they offer packages too so please do inquire now and say goodbye to your razors for life!
