Among the booths that got ahold of my business card, I was lucky enough to have my name drawn by YSA Skin and Body Experts and won 1 treatment from them. I love winning at contests and just in time as my underarms are due for hair removal. This is because went to Blogapalooza to give away a few of my business cards *ehem* that I newly designed and I’m proud off. Chose a few booths that ‘s beauty, fashion, food, or skincare related so I get to work with companies in my niche. I didn’t stay very long, there wasn’t that much to do there anyway promise. It’s free. It promises to be painless. So why not try diba? My story ahead!
I had doubts. They always say it’s “pain free” or “painless” but it still hurts! I’ve been undergoing IPL (Intense Pulse Laser) treatments several times already in different places for my underarms. Take note that IPL is different from Diode. What’s the difference between IPL and Diode? With IPL, your hair still returns, only thinner. It’s just a notch higher than waxing. With Diode, it’s permanent hair removal. I hope I can try that soon.
So I went to the YSA Skin at Robinson’s Metro East and they were acommodating and answered all my questions. I believe an IPL treatment costs 1999php per session. I reviewed their YSA Green Papaya Soap before and I loved how it dried up my pimples.

The cooling gel that’s FREEZING
They applied the cooling gel to protect my skin from the pain of the IPL. Oh boy this is a different pain though. The gel was freezing cold and it did numb my armpits.
You know what? It’s indeed painless. The hair removal is painless but that’s because of the super freezing gel they applied on my underarms that numbed my pits! When I used to do IPL before in other clinics, the pain is like a rubberband being snapped over and over on your skin. That’s how painful it is.
Thanks everyone! Haha! I’m so pambahay-mode! 🙂
I’m glad I won the raffle. O diba nakalibre ako ng IPL 🙂
I realized if there are raffles like this, or yung mga nasa mall. We should take chances. Walang mawawala diba? We all have that 1% chance. Agree?

Nakakahiya mang aminin pero ngayon ko lang nalaman ang difference ng IPL sa Diode. Lol, thanks for that info! I haven't tried Diode but I saw it cross on some hair removal articles I've read in the past. I had several sessions of IPL and I'm quite impressed at how it significantly improved my armpit. You're right, bumabalik ang buhok pero manipis na. And I can relate to that rubberband pain sa IPL. Kala ko ako lang nakapansin nun. Lol. Hmm, that freezing cold gel, I guess, makes Ysa's IPL different. Thanks for sharing. I'll try that treatment there. So you think it's sulit na for P1999 per session? I trust your recommendation 🙂
By the way, you're right about joining contests. Wala namang mawawala plus it's super fun pa 🙂
OMG NGAYON KO LANG NALAMAN ANG DIFFERENCE NG IPL AT DIODE NO JOKE… MAS MAGANDA PALA ANG DIODE THANK YOU FOR THE USEFUL INFORMATION 😀 I'VE BEEN PLANNING AND SAVING MONEY FOR IPL PERO MAS MAGANDA PALA ANG PAINLESS DIODE 😀 HOW MUCH ANG DIODE?
so IPL IS TEMPORARY? LIKE WAXING? O NIREREDUCE LANG TALAGA ANG KAPAL NG HAIR STRAND? THEN DIODE IS PERMANENT? FOR LIFE?
