Bye Bye, Unwanted Hair!

Have you ever wonder why such thing as ARMPIT HAIR exists? Not only it's not pretty, it is also freaking useless. Couple months ago, Jess did a quick research and found this site dedicated for The (infamous) Armpit Hair, *Warning: Disturbing Image Attached* Hahaha. Not only underarm hair (nickname for pit hair) lah, we girls also questioning the existence of leg's hair, arm's hair, upper lip's hair (yes, it is a nickname for mustache, and yes, some of us DO have a tiny bit share of mustache lol), and not to mention PUBIC hair. Why... Oh... Why... T______T

So, in order to get that smooth and hairless look we want, we braced ourselves and went through Shaving, Threading, Plucking, Waxing, Sugaring, til the latest one: Epilating.
These methods DID remove the unwanted hair but -we don't know about you guys, but with us, the hair grew back in a very short period of time (uh, in less than a week?). It's kinda frustrating, not to mention the pain from waxing and plucking, and also the negative side effect from shaving (ingrown hairs, bleeding, etc.) Epilator was our favorite method so far, but it's also temporary.

Now now, while longing for the perfect way to remove all these unwanted hair, we found this piece of advertorial in a magazine not so long ago. It was about this hair removal specialist; ZAP. Quoting from the website:
"ZAP offers Intense Pulsed Light technology for Permanent Hair Removal. Its enjoyable and cost effective. ZAP is the most affordable Permanent Hair Removal in Indonesia. Price starts from Rp.75.000. ZAP is the specialist in permanent hair removal treatment using popular technology in Australia and other major countries in the world.

Ok it basically offers a completely safe and different technique from any of those methods we mentioned before. What makes it different is: ZAP offers us PERMANENT RESULT*! Imagine how much time we'd save PLUS how gorgeous those smooth and hairless body parts would look like!! So we thought: "Omo, this is meant to be!" and decided to give it a try ;)
It took, more or less, 5 times for a best result for permanent hair removal, due to hair condition. It takes 6-12 weeks until 2 month for each treatment. Due to the different phases of hair growth, a waiting-period of 6 weeks should be necessary for the best result.

We went to the closest ZAP outlet which is located at 
Belleza, Jakarta. The place looks nice and we were greeted by their friendly crews. For starter, each of us were asked to fill two forms regarding our physical condition and some of our personal data. After that, they took us to two separate rooms and began the treatment (WATCH THE VIDEO PLEASE for the full progress, HAHAHA):

Okay the treatment was exceptionally PAINLESS! Both me and elle felt absolutely nothing but some kind of flicking? Haha and it was very comfortable (I even fell asleep during the treatment wtf) compared to the other hair removal methods we mentioned before. AND since ZAP offers greater result (permanent removal), we were expecting even greater pain loh... Hahaha turns out it was more effective, yet much more painless. The best hair removal method or what?? :D :D

Happy legs, hairless legs!

So, after longing for that perfect way for hair removal, we have finally found it and can happily say, "Bye bye, unwanted hair!"

  1. Carefull though...Setiap benda ada untuk maksud tertentu. Setau gue sih ya,CMIIW, keberadaan bulu di tubuh adalah sebagai pengendali temperatur kulit, pencegahan iritasi akibat pengaruh luar maupun akibat pengaruh badan (contoh suhu tubuh dan kadar keasaman keringat)....dan pernah baca juga bulu adalah bentuk fisik 'pelampiasan' tubuh atas sekresi hormon yang berlebih....(pernah mendengar mitos hairy women have more libidos?)

    Pengalaman cc gue sihh...dia harus operasi pembuluh darah. Pembuluh darah di ketiaknya mengeras akibat salah satu metode penghilangan bulu tersebut...(yaiks!!!)

    Be grateful on what you have...I personally like the way i look WITH my armpit. Don't worry i always kept them clean and fresh!!!
