What are the Prices of Hair Removal Treatments in Singapore?
Hair removal is pretty much the norm in Singapore these days. In fact, hair removal is not only applicable for women but for men as well. According to a survey by Braun, about 62% of men now manscape regularly, with those that do saying it makes them feel cleaner, sexier and also enhances the appearance of their muscle. While shaving and waxing are the more common forms of hair removal in the past (as provided by establishments such as Strip Singapore and Sugared), they do not lead to permanent hair reduction, and there are many horror stories of ingrown hairs. In this article, we will provide an estimation of the per-session hair removal treatments for some of the establishments in Singapore.
Why does shaving and waxing lead to ingrown hairs?
The objective of waxing is to remove the entire hair from the follicle (hidden beneath the skin). However, the hair tends to break either above or slightly below the skin's surface when waxed. Usually this is caused when the wax is removed in the opposing direction of the hair's growth. This leads to additional strain on the hair.
Instead of a new hair growing back with its natural beveled edge, the hair is now blunt and sharp. This sharpness causes the hair to pierce the skin and grow into it. Shaving also causes the same issue. The ingrown hair is not only unattractive and permanent, but it can be painful. Ingrown hairs also causes pimples due to the infection of the area - unless you remove the ingrown hair, the discomfort continues to persist and may even cause pus to form due to infection.
This is also why more customers are turning to hair removal as the better alternative to shaving and waxing.

Besides Brazilian hair removal, there is also a unique category of Full Body Hair Removal. This allows the customer to pay a single price or fee to enjoy permanent hair removal for all body parts including Brazilian or Boyzilian. There are not many merchants offering such a service, with the exception of Wellaholic and Datsumo Labo. Wellaholic also has a WellaSmooth package which includes all-inclusive shaving as well as Post-Treatment Therapy with AfterGlow (red light rejuvenating treatment).
Always Consider the Quality of Treatments over the Pricing
While the per-session pricing is a good gauge on which hair removal operator to visit, pricing alone is usually not an effective indicator. This is because the quality and efficacy of treatments, together with the level of customer service may vary from establishment to establishment. Always make it a point to read the customer reviews before committing yourself to a long-term package!
