Using a shaver to remove the hairs from our armpits can be a really pesky, tedious chore – not only does it take time to make sure that our underarms are completely hairless, but it also has to be done nearly daily. Plus, it can darken the underarms and sometimes cause unsightly bumps.

To enjoy smooth and hairless underarms for longer, consider waxing as a semi-permanent hair removal option, so that hairs only resurface about two to three weeks after. Over time, waxing might also help hairs to become thinner and grow less – you also won’t experience dull patches because it doesn’t nick the skin.

Better yet, there are also IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), OPT (Optimal Pulsed Technology), and SHR (Super Hair Removal) techniques that remove hair permanently after several sessions when scheduled four to six weeks apart. This way, you can bid good riddance to the regular task of shaving forever.

To help you out, we’ve rounded up the best semi-permanent and permanent hair removal services in Singapore!
