The best hair removal services in Singapore
Laser/IPL salons in Singapore
Put the razor down, because according to Supersmooth, the future is fuzz-free. Its laser hair removal is suitable and safe for all skin types and skin tones, including those of us who are blessed to be brown. Using diode lasers, it skips your skin and heads straight to the follicle to eventually prevent hair growth. Do it on your pits, legs, bikini line… you name it, these guys will do it.
Supersmooth, branches in Far East Square, Robinson Square, and Orchard Centrepoint
This medi-spa uses the popular I2PL to permanently remove hair by targeting melanin in the hair shaft to remove the roots, preventing them from re-growing. Skin Lab’s great if you’re looking to remove hair on larger areas, such as your back, as well as removing thicker and darker hair. Heads up: this treatment might sting a little.
SkinLab, several locations around Singapore
With affordable prices and an online reservation system, hair removal is made easier and quicker with Wellaholic’s Super Hair Removal (SHR), using the latest non-laser technology. Their SHR treatment is less painful than IPL and is suitable for all skin types and skin tones. The best bit? After paying for 12 sessions, Wellaholic offers Lifetime Maintenance Mode – you can go back any time (with a gap of at least four weeks) to touch up any areas that need a little extra, for a nominal fee.

Say goodbye to red, itchy bumps that you’ve grown accustomed to post-shave and head over to EstheClinic for their permanent hair removal solution: IPL. It’s a painless, fast and safe treatment with technology solutions from France. It destroys the hair through the absorption of light by melanin (natural pigment) without damaging the surrounding tissue. Do note that IPL is not suitable for our fair-haired or red-haired friends.

Did you know there’s a new laser removal technology that’s even more comfortable than IPL? Enter SHR, a more advanced technology that releases gentler pulses of energy at a frequency higher than IPL. The treatment is said to be more effective and longer-lasting, with minimal skin trauma. Targeting both coarse and fine hairs, SHR is an effective treatment that’s suitable for all skin types – yes, even sensitive skin! Curious to test it out for yourself?

Sugaring is an ancient technique of hair removal – yep, rumour has it even Cleopatra used this method of removing hair. It’s 100% natural: the sugar paste is made of water, lemon juice and sugar and it’s moulded into a ball and spread over the skin and gently removed, taking with it any fuzz. The best bit: it exfoliates at the same time.
