It’s been almost 6 weeks and I haven’t gotten my underarms lasered yet. I’m supposed to have it every month but due to financial constraints, I scouted for cheaper places to get it that’s why it took me a while to find one. I used to get my pits done at Mendez in Megamall. I availed of their 10k for 5 sessions promo. I was fairly satisfied with the service but I wanted to see if I can get IPL at a lower price somewhere else.
Thanks to GirlTalk, I found out about Rapha Health Institute (Greenbelt 5). I was about to get it done at Rapha but they were closed on the day I went. They had an introductory price of PHP 1,000 for the underarms. Apparently, they have very limited operating hours. They’re closed on Sundays and you can’t just walk in on Saturdays because you have to set an appointment. On weekdays, they close at 6 PM. This makes it impossible for me to go there considering it’s in Makati.
I found another place (thanks to Sulit.com), Hello Salon and Spa in Globe Telecom Tower. There’s this ad for Elite Laser in Sulit and it mentions some of the establishments that use Elite. I wasn’t surprised to find out that Rapha is one of them. Anyway, the price is enticing –PHP 1,000 for underarms. But I hesitated because the attendant who’s supposed to do the IPL doesn’t even know what type of IPL it was. The place didn’t look clean either because it’s actually a hair salon so there was a lot of hair on the floor and the stank of chemicals enveloped the room. And so the search continues.
I suddenly remembered Skin Station in St. Francis Square that offered IPL for underarms for PHP 1,200. To my dismay, they have increased their prices and it became PHP 2,000. One will be able to get it for a thousand if she will purchase 8 sessions. But I didn’t need 8 sessions!
Finally, God answered my prayer! I received an email telling me that Summit employees can buy Dermclinic GC’s for half the price. I did the math. Dermclinic charges PHP 3,500 per session so if I avail of the GC’s, I’ll only be paying PHP 1,750 per session. That’s even cheaper than what I used to pay for my underarms in Mendez.
