Is this going to hurt?
Yes, that was one of the first things I asked the aesthetic consultant attending to me. As someone who has never undergone professional hair removal services before, I was clueless about what to expect.
I must admit I had my reservations when the opportunity for Wellaholic’s WellaSmooth treatments popped up. Pain was one factor. Another major concern for me was whether the treatments were permanent.
When I was assured that their hair removal services were not painful and only semi-permanent, I decided to give it a shot.
It was a quiet Thursday evening when I dropped by their Lavender outlet.
Conveniently located within walking distance from Lavender MRT station, I was greeted by their chirpy receptionist upon arrival. I was then assigned an aesthetic consultant, who proceeded to explain to me what WellaSmooth by Wellaholic entails.
This new package by Wellaholic launched on 1 October 2019 comprises three primary services: namely unlimited shaving, SHR (Super Hair Removal) treatments (including Boyzilian) as well as post-hair removal services where you can choose from between a whitening service or hydrating therapy, both of which were followed by an AfterGlow rejuvenating treatment.
WellaSmooth Part 1: Unlimited Shaving Service
I was first led into one of their treatment rooms in preparation for their unlimited shaving service.
The purpose of their unlimited shaving service is to prepare you for the SHR treatments, which can only be performed on a shaven surface. So while it’s recommended that you shave before your SHR session, you’re more than welcome to use their unlimited shaving service for the body parts that you want to use SHR for.
As I opted to only have the SHR treatment done on my underarms, only that body part was shaved.
WellaSmooth Part 2: SHR (Super Hair Removal) On Unlimited Body Parts
Once my underarms were clean-shaven, I was handed a pair of safety goggles in preparation for their SHR (Super Hair Removal) service.
Wellaholic’s SHR technology works by firing energy pulses in a gliding motion on the targeted body part. The probe used for the treatment felt cold to the touch initially. But it does gradually heat up as the SHR technology works its magic.
Reportedly more effective than IPL treatments, I’m glad to report that the SHR treatment was relatively painless. Although there was very slight discomfort, I don’t think anyone would classify the sensation as being painful. In fact, I could feel myself dozing off at times!
SHR technology also works pretty quick, and the best part is that it is suitable for all hair types and skin tones.
WellaSmooth Part 3: PTT with AfterGlow
After SHR is done, you can opt for either their Whitening treatment or their Hydration Therapy. I was given their Hydration Therapy, which helps the treated skin become more supple and smooth.
After the Hydration Therapy was done, I was treated to their AfterGlow technology, which repairs and rejuvenates the treated skin.
Similar to the SHR treatment, the AfterGlow red light treatment makes use of energy pulses fired through a probe. Although it felt hotter than the SHR treatment, discomfort was still minimal.
Overall Verdict: Effective, Painless And Excellent Customer Service
Winner of the “Best Hair Removal Services” at the Beauty Insider Spa & Salon Award 2019, it should come as no surprise that I had a pleasant experience with their WellaSmooth treatments.
Not my first experience with Wellaholic, they can always be depended on to deliver scientifically backed and industry-approved services. Coupled with their excellent customer service, I would highly recommend their WellaSmooth package for those of you looking to go smooth.
