My Review on Laser Hair Removal Clinics in Manila


In my quest to end my hairy monkey days, I scouted the best clinics in Metro Manila to have my laser hair removal sessions. I ended up trying out 3 different clinics. Here is my honest (personal) take on these clinics. Don't hesitate to comment! 
-Lots of love, SunnyB ;)

LASER HAIR REMOVAL CLINIC REVIEWS
  • Shinagawa clinic, Makati: This is, hands down, the best clinic I've tried. Their staffs are very professional! The clinic is quite intimidating but the prices are really  affordable! laser hair removal for underarms cost 1,500/session and Lower legs cost 4,000/session. Always ask for discounts,DON'T BE SHY! They have all sorts of promos like buy 3 take 1 laser sessions or free laser genesis facials. They also have 0% installment for 6 months(which I availed)! What I LOVE about this clinic is their pre-screening. Their inhouse dermatologist will really take the time to assess your skin, explain the procedure and basically reduce your anxiety. YOU ARE IN GOOD HANDS. 
  • La Estetica Clinic, Ortigas: Sorry to say this but La Estetica is a below average clinic. It may look nice on the outside but service is bad. :/ I only went here because I bought promo laser hair removal vouchers online. It contrasts greatly with the service I got from Shinagawa. The staffs are indifferent (dedma) and they don't have pre-screening procedures. You basically walk in and have yourself lasered in less than 20 mins. I wasn't informed of how laser works or what to expect. The only thing the nurse who worked on me said was "mam, medyo masakit po ka, parang pitik ng rubberband)" and "wag basain ang area for 6 hours". Their machine is PAINFUL. It felt more like a light electrocution rather than a rubber band snap. TAKE NOTE: THIS WAS DONE ON MY BIKINI LINE.  Would I recommend this clinic to you? No. This is my honest opinion.  :/
  • Body Accents Clinic, Ortigas: I LOVE THEIR MACHINE! Their clinic isn't as pretty as the other two clinics mentioned above but it more than made up for it in customer service and the actual session. Their staffs are nice and friendly. What I love about their machine is it's ALMOST PAINLESS. Also, the tip  of their laser probe is wide( almost the size of a female's full thumb). This means it can cover a larger area with less shots and it takes only a few minutes. You can visit them at 1143 Citiland tower, ADB avenue. It's the blue bldng behind Robinsons galleria (ADB wing, The one with Fridays Resto. Do ask for their promo. You might get lucky! Ask for a package deal, they sell their laser hair removal session for 3,000 ,10 sessions! They used to post this promo online but now offer them in their clinic directly. If they hesitate, you might want to tell them your friend availed it and told you about it. They may change their minds ;)
    • I had 1 underarm session and 8 brazilian sessions here ( or 16 laser hair removal session. 1 for my bikini line and 1 for my labia or female lips).
    • PS. a full brazilian means you also get rid of hair on your female folds. It's a FULL job! a bikini line laser will only get rid of hair on the top and sides of your front V. Most clinics charge double or more for a full brazilian laser hair removal session. Ask your clinic about this first.

  2. Hi, onehappypinay
    I'm thinking of a full brazilian at Body Accents as you seem to be satisfied with the results. Would you know what type of laser they use? (NdYag / Diode, etc). My skin is slightly fair like most pinays but I can't say the same for my private part-it is darker down there and I know from internet research that only certain types of lasers work for darkly pigmented skin. Would appreciate your response. Thanks.

    1. maybe yours isnt really dark? maybe it's the hair underneath the skin? I guess it's somewhat dark since the area has lots of blood vessels.
      I don't know what their machine is but it's painless! you'll probably need 12 sessions to get barely no hair results. if you're going for a full brazillian talaga, you'll need to pay for 24 sessions since 2 sessions ung for brazilian. that's 1 for bikini line, 1 for the sensitive labia area. :)

    1. In Manila, I personally feel Shingawa is the best derma clinic. The staffs are professional and the machines thry use are top of the line.
      My UA is practically hairless. From 100% hair density down to like 10%? After 7sessions:)

      Delete
    2. I asked one clinic if it will guarantee me a permanent hair loss in my underarm. And said " there is no 100% in medicine, Give it a year or two of no treatment, hair may regrow and thicken again because that is how our body mechanism works. We are animals that have hair in certain places and once in a while you would still need a touch up." So basically there is no permanent hair loss after taking laser hair removal. Is there any chance that someone can or cannot stop the growth of the hair?

  5. I've been there great staff and very helpful.

  6. hi, naka-ilang laser removal sessions ka para sa lower leg mo? anong clinic? and kmusta ung hair sa lower leg mo ngaun?

    Replies
    1. I'm not super hairy on the legs. Probably moderate? Density. 5 sessions lang and I'm super happy!;) If you want super hairless legs,go for 6-7 sessions. It's pricy but so worth it! *Pwede card installment ;-)

      Delete
  7. I had 5 LHR sessions in Shinagawa. their machine is Candela. Very sophisticated yung place. And the treatments I had were very good. I recommend it! I am not hairless. I had to continue my sessions at a different clinic which is using Diode. But still! Shinagawa's machine works good!

  10. hi how much is the lower leg hair removal at body accents? does the 3000 per session apply to that? thanks!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Last time I checked, it's only 300/session but you have to buy it in bulk/ by 10 sessions thus totaling 3,000 pesos. Their machine is half as effective as shinagawa's candella yag machine but it doesn't hurt.
      Shinagawa: if you're after faster results.more expensive and painful.

  11. Laser hair removal is a very modern method to get rid of unwanted body hairs.It works on the inner skin pigments to get you the best result.If you live near Los angeles you can watch out

  14. Laser hair removal widely used across the world because it has some season treatment and then it treats like a permanent treatment but As I already concerning you , it's also not a permanent treatment but unlike others it's far best enough and excellent .

  15. How was the effectivity of the laser treatments at Body Accents? In how many sessions did you start to see results?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Half as effective lang as shinagawa but a lot cheaper if they still offer the package promo(10sessions for 3k). Thief machine is painless too! :)
      I'm basing this review after 6 mos of laser treatment on both clinics. That was a year ago;)

  16. hi, if ever na mag pa laser hair removal, permanent na hindi na babalik yung hair? thanks in advance :)

    1. Personally, sa shinagawa clinic (lower legs and underarms),hindi na bumalik. It's been almost 2 years now. 5-7 sessions super ok na ung results-promise! Ng price increase na sila tho. Just wait for their promo or leave your no. Sa receptionist para ma inform ka nya:) they offer 2+1 promo minsan;)
      Ung sa body accent, parang bumalik? Pero thinner and not as much as before.i'm down to 50% hair density after 9 brazillian sessions

  17. Such reviews are very helpful when you are searching for a reliable place for laser hair removal, thanks for sharing.

  51. Review: Had my 1st Candela underarm session at Shinagawa last Nov 28, 2013 and after a month of observation, I lost about 70% of the hair already. :) I was thinking twice to go for 2nd session after 1 month because the hair is still too thin, so I scheduled my 2nd session today (after 1month and 18days). I'm so excited for the results.

    By the way, I had 6 sessions of IPL in Surgiderm - SM Taytay last year that cost me P6,000, but I only lost 30-40% of my underarm hair after all the sessions I had, grr. (Yea, I had my own hairy monkey days)

    Thanks for this blog post!

    Laser hair removal is a best procedure for removing unwanted hairs.

    I was upset from the regular routine of waxing and threading. One day, I thought for laser hair removal. I search on internet for laser hair removal clinic in chandigarh. I choose Dr. Rachna's Skin and Cosmetology clinic, I contacted them and they given me appointment of next day. I visited to her clinic and she told to me all about laser hair removal. I said yes for my treatment. Now I am very happy because now I not need regular routine of waxing.

  61. Been to Body Accents. Not effective. I think they are not using diode laser. Maybe just IPL? Because after several months, about 90% of my hair came back. Still thick. This is my experience with IPL. Been to different clinics, all IPL, cheap kasi kaya nakakaenganyo. But in the end, mas magastos kasi almost no chang sa hair density and thickness. Makikita mo yong effect 6 sessions. May effect pa lang yon a. Di pa un yong effect na gusto mo.
    Unlike when diode laser is used, first session about 50-70% of hair will be gone and the growing hairs are thin and soft. After 3 sessions, 99% hair-free. This is my experience with Clarity sa Shangri la. Anyway, kahit di sa Clarity basta diode laser, hindi IPL.

  62. hi for all the ladies out there who wanted to get rid of unwanted hair, waxing is much more expensive kasi you'll do it regularly, so i super suggest na have it lasered, dont do the ipl, the diode laser is more effective, ive been doing this for 2 years na and its super effective. I'm a bit hairy so it took me 8 sessions sa SCS sa moa, a bit expensive than shinagawa but it's worth it, plus Doctors ang maghahandle sayo, basically babalik yung hair pero minimal na lang. Now Im seeing a little bit of maninipis na hair and I'm planning to visit shinagawa instead since it's much cheaper, just for maintenance ;)
