If you’re one to try various semi-permanent hair removal treatments, you’ll probably be familiar with the pain, discomfort, and lacklustre results that come with it. Not to mention, a hefty price tag that isn’t justified at all.

Well, renowned intimate care expert Strip have heard our cries and they’ve created the Strip AFT Hair Removal to ensure a less painful yet more effective and precise hair removal that’s able to cover a larger surface area.

To find out if the Strip AFT Hair Removal delivers what it claims to, we invited 10 readers to try the treatment on the Brazilian area and share their thoughts and results from the first session.

About Strip AFT Hair Removal Treatment

strip aft hair removal treatment readers reviews storefront

Hailed as the next generation of semi-permanent hair removal, the revolutionary AFT Hair Removal Treatment is the result of a partnership between Strip and Alma Lasers, a world-leading manufacturer of light-based treatments.

Unlike IPL, which uses a broad wavelength to disperse spikes of energy, Strip’s AFT utilises a narrower wavelength of light to deliver an even distribution of energy. The result? A more targeted and precise treatment that removes up to 80%* of hair over a course of six sessions.

Besides that, what sets the AFT Hair Removal treatment apart is that it uses custom-made 5cm crystal applicators, instead of 3cm ones used in IPL treatments. This allows the AFT machine to cover a wider surface, thereby enhancing its overall effectiveness, especially in the Brazilian area.

Even better, Strip’s AFT Hair Removal uses a unique built-in cooling system alongside an ‘in-motion’ technique to make it highly suitable for those with very low pain thresholds. So don’t worry, the whole treatment is gonna be the most comfortable you’ve ever experienced. Bonus: there’s no downtime to the treatment at all.

Apart from the Brazilian area, the treatment can also be done from head to toe, including arms, underarms, legs, bikini line, back, and upper lips – just to name a few.

If you’d like to reap the full benefits of Strip’s AFT Hair Removal, consider going for a course of six sessions with four-to-six-week intervals. The treatment slows down your natural hair growth, so you can enjoy smooth, fuzz-free skin that lasts up to two to three years.*

Summary

Most of our reviewers agreed that the AFT Hair Removal by Strip is a quick, comfortable, and painless hair removal treatment.

Reviewers reported minimal to no pain during the treatment, and that the aftercare provided helped soothe any redness and swelling post-hair removal. In fact, almost all reviewers agreed that AFT is more comfortable and practically painless compared to conventional IPL/SHR hair removal treatments.

All of them particularly appreciated the hygienic set-up of the treatment with personal AFT kits and disposable tools for each customer.

Our reviewers also appreciated how thorough the therapists were in explaining the process in detail and making sure the customer was comfortable throughout each of the session. Some even likened AFT to a hot stone massage rather than a hair removal treatment.

Previously tried: Intense Pulsed Light treatments (IPL/SHR), Waxing (hard/soft)

Previous experience with hair removal services: The IPL treatment was more painful and the results were not visible even after a few sessions.

Strip AFT Hair Removal experience: It was my first time doing Brazilian hair removal and I felt really comfortable throughout the entire treatment. Surprisingly, Strip AFT Hair Removal was not painful at all!

The therapist was very attentive and she made sure that I was comfortable at every step of the process. She also informed me about the redness or swelling and explained why this happens.

She then told me that it would subside within a couple of hours or days with the help of TWO L(I)PS ICE or Pout, which was applied after the treatment to soothe my skin.

The entire treatment was very comfortable and certainly different from what I had expected the hair removal to feel like. I appreciated how the therapist kept applying the cooling gel to ensure that it didn’t feel prickly.

I noticed slower hair growth after one session, but I also understand that a course of six sessions are recommended for me to reap the full benefits. Overall, the AFT is painless compared to IPL/SHR.

It really felt more like a hot stone massage than a hair removal session. The cold gel that was used also helped to make the treatment feel more comfortable.

I liked how friendly and professional the therapist was. She even tried to make a small talk with me so that I don’t feel nervous during the treatment. I thought it would be painful as I have coarse hair but it was painless. It was really such a great experience!

Comfort level: 5/5

Previously tried: Intense Pulsed Light treatments (IPL/SHR), Waxing (hard/soft)

Previous experience with hair removal services: My previous hair removal experiences have been pleasant with no issues.

Strip AFT Hair Removal experience: It was a fuss-free, comfortable treatment that I got to enjoy in a private environment. I liked how the therapist made sure that I was comfortable throughout the treatment.

The AFT Hair Removal was also painless, unlike the IPL treatment I previously tried. Throughout the session, my therapist also applied cooling gel to soothe the skin, making my session even more comfortable.

She also applied the post-treatment cream to calm my skin, which could be why I didn’t experience any redness or swelling after.

Overall, Strip AFT Hair Removal is painless when compared to IPL/SHR.

Pei Ying, 28

Previously tried: Waxing (hard/soft)

Previous experience with hair removal services: Waxing really hurt, and there were bumps on my skin after because my skin was irritated by the hot wax. My skin also became more sensitive after. It was extremely uncomfortable, painful, and the salon did not practise good hygiene.

Strip AFT Hair Removal experience: I loved my experience so much! Prior to the treatment, I was worried and scared that it would be uncomfortable, but my therapist (Carol at Strip’s Wheelock outlet) was so assuring and friendly. She made the entire process comfortable and assured me that there was nothing to be worried about.

She explained every step of the treatment in detail so that I would know what to expect. The entire process was so comfortable. In fact, it felt like a warm stone therapy. The cooling gel made everything even more comfortable.

The whole process was quick and efficient. I think it took around 30 minutes or so. They also gave me a few samples to try in the aftercare kit. I like how accessible their outlets are too, so I can pick one that’s the most convenient for me.

The post-treatment care cream really helped to soothe and calm my skin, and I didn’t experience any redness or swelling after too. I saw results one to three days after the session, and I know that more sessions are required for more pronounced results.

Overall, Strip AFT Hair Removal was a painless process for me and I would highly recommend this service to anyone who is looking for an effective semi-permanent hair removal treatment.

Jo Ann, 28

Previously tried: Intense Pulsed Light treatments (IPL/SHR)

Previous experience with hair removal services: I’ve tried IPL trial packages and they were not effective at all. My hair grew out the day after and I did not see results even after six sessions. I also hated doing Brazilian IPL as the therapist didn’t seem skilled in shaving. Plus, it was so uncomfortable and I always experienced a prickly pain when lasers were used on sensitive areas.

Strip AFT Hair Removal experience: My therapist was very friendly and knowledgeable, and the treatment wasn’t uncomfortable at all. She was gentle during the shaving and continuously checked if I needed more cooling gel or if there was any discomfort or pain.

The therapist also explained to me about the post-treatment care, and applied the product immediately after at no extra charge.

Most importantly, I saw results in just one session! My hair grew out the next day, but two weeks after the treatment, my hair started dropping out. I definitely noticed a difference four to seven days after the first session.

Compared to IPL/SHR, AFT was painless and so comfortable, which was enhanced by the cooling gel that was used during the treatment. On top of that, Strip AFT Hair Removal didn’t cause as much redness, unlike IPL/SHR.

Melissa, 29

Previously tried: Intense Pulsed Light treatments (IPL/SHR), Waxing (hard/soft)

Previous experience with hair removal services: Some places I went to did not apply any gel prior to the zapping, so I could feel a hot sensation. I had ingrown hairs very often after my treatment, and the results weren’t visible even after I completed the course of recommended sessions too. On top of that, there were hidden costs and it was difficult to book appointments.

Strip AFT Hair Removal experience: The therapist helped me shave the treatment area, so it was fuss-free and way easier than shaving myself. Plus, the shave-down is included in the service with no extra charge.

My therapist was very attentive to my needs and offered more cooling gel whenever requested. It really made the treatment much more comfortable and my skin didn’t feel as heated.

The post-treatment care products that were applied immediately after the session didn’t come with an extra fee too. The cream also helped to calm my skin immediately after the session. I didn’t experience any redness or swelling after the treatment too.

The best part was that I saw results in one to three days after my first session. Of course, I would need to go for a full six sessions to see optimal results.

Overall, the treatment was comfortable. I highly recommend trying it!

Katrina, 31

Previously tried: Waxing (hard/soft)

Previous experience with hair removal services: Waxing is painful, so I decided to look for other hair removal treatments.

Strip AFT Hair Removal experience: I liked that it was painless and there was a slight warming sensation at certain areas. I also appreciate that the shave-down was included as part of the service at no extra charge, and the post-treatment care products were applied right after I finished the session with no extra fee too.

Overall, I enjoyed my session, and since I didn’t experience any redness or swelling after, I didn’t have to use the ICE Calming Rescue Cream. It was a comfortable session, which is why it’s a better experience than waxing.

What really surprised me were the results I saw! Hair regrowth was noticeably slower four to seven days after my initial session.

Winky, 32

Previously tried: Intense Pulsed Light treatments (IPL/SHR), Waxing (hard/soft), Sugaring

Previous experience with hair removal services: They did not include shaving and they were all uncomfortable at times. The results were not visible and did not last even after I completed a course of recommended sessions.

Strip AFT Hair Removal experience: Adriana, the assistant manager, was very friendly from the time I stepped into the salon. She also patiently explained the benefits of the aftercare products when I had questions. I appreciate that there was no waiting time required too.

The therapist Holiday was also very gentle and explained each step of the procedure. I highly recommend first timers to book their appointment with Holiday.

The entire Strip AFT Hair Removal treatment was bearable with slight discomfort. Holiday informed me on all the pre- and post-treatment details, and she placed my comfort level first.

The post-treatment care cream (TWO L(I)PS ICE or Pout) was applied to soothe and calm my skin immediately after the session. And I did not experience any redness or swelling after too. I actually noticed slower hair growth one to three days after my session.

Compared to IPL and SHR, AFT is much more comfortable. It felt more like hot stone massage rather than a hair removal session. There was no rubber band snapping sensation with Strip AFT Hair Removal, and the ice cool gel used during AFT makes the treatment very comfortable with almost zero “heated skin” sensation.

The treatment bed was extremely comfortable too, and I almost fell asleep! Plus, the sunglasses provided during the treatment helped to prevent glares from the treatment device, which can be a frequent problem at other salons.

Comfort level: 5/5

Sharon, 34

Previously tried: Intense Pulsed Light treatments (IPL/SHR)

Previous experience with hair removal services: Although I did notice obvious results when I did IPL on my legs, I decided not to continue the treatment as it was difficult to book appointments, even though I signed up for a package that promised unlimited sessions.

Strip AFT Hair Removal experience: I like that Strip uses disposable tools to shave down the treatment area. Plus, it’s included as part of the service with no extra charge. What I love most was how painless it was.

My therapist ensured that every step of the process was comfortable for me, and she was very attentive too. She applied a post-treatment care cream to the area to help soothe and calm my skin.

Overall, it was very comfortable and I didn’t experience any rubberband-like snapping sensation with the Strip AFT Hair Removal. The cool gel that was used also made the treatment feel comfortable and took the heat off the area.

Sarah, 35

Previously tried: Intense Pulsed Light treatments (IPL/SHR), Waxing (hard/soft), Sugaring

Previous experience with hair removal services: My hair would grow back very fast after sugaring session. Waxing is also very painful and I had burns as well as post-treatment scarring. The environment did not have tip-top hygiene conditions too. Plus, the results did not last after completing completed course of recommended sessions.

Strip AFT Hair Removal experience: I liked that the outlet followed up with a reminder for my appointment. Before the start of Strip AFT Hair Removal, the front desk team ran through pre-treatment indemnity disclosure terms with me so that I was fully aware.

The treatment room was neat and tidy and my therapist ensured that every step of the process was comfortable for me. She was also attentive to my needs and offered more cooling gel when necessary. Immediately after my session, she applied the post-treatment care products at no extra charge.

She recommended TWO L(I)PS products after and she also took the time to explain what I should do in case I experience any post-treatment skin sensitivity such as redness and swelling – something that I didn’t experience at all, thankfully.

Overall, the hair removal session was very comfortable, different from what I expected the hair removal to feel like as I experienced no pain at all. I was also well informed by the therapist on all pre- and post-treatment details.

The staff were very friendly and provided excellent service. It was easy to book my session too.

Previously tried: Intense Pulsed Light treatments (IPL/SHR)

Previous experience with hair removal services: IPL was okay but it required frequent visits. I signed up for a package too, so I didn’t have a choice but to continue, even though I am still waiting to experience results from the treatment.

Strip AFT Hair Removal experience: I experienced no pain at all during the treatment, and my therapist was very experienced and fast. I also felt more at ease because Strip uses disposable tools, and the therapist walked me through every step in the process.

The post-treatment care products (TWO L(I)PS ICE or Pout) that were applied to the area after the treatment also soothed and calmed my skin – there was no extra charge for this too.

Compared to IPL, Strip AFT Hair Removal’s process was definitely much faster and painless.
