Without further ado, we present the lowdown on some of the best hair removal salons in Singapore to de-fuzz. Here’s wishing you a smoother day!
LASER / IPL
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 being 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, Level 2 Robinson Square, 144 Robinson Rd, Singapore 068908
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, seven 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 the areas that need touching up 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.

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.
