You must be wondering what’s with the headline La Vie Aesthetics Singapore – Because it works (because it really does)! BYE BYE all you unwanted hair! If you have been following my blog, you would know I only share my truest and most honest opinion on things/products I’ve tried. La Vie Aesthetics knew about this too (BIG THANKS) and allowed me to start sharing my tried and tested views on their BYEhair treatment using this Super Hair Removal (SHR) technique after my 3rd visit! I appreciate their understanding for I can share this entire journey with you as transparent as can be!
What I’m about to share with you here is possibly one of my most fearful and horrified secret that only a few of my closest friends know. Sometimes I even dream about it and I’ll wake up in shock. I have been shaving my legs and hiding them behind leggings for the longest time and by longest I mean over 2 decades or more! I’ll wear leggings over everything as long as they are covered; both long skirts and dresses cos it is such a hassle to shave especially since mine grew really fast (obvious prickly black hair on my very fair legs) in about 2 days!!
Mama Chow was always scolding me for shaving because it makes my leg hair thicker, rashes which turns into scars from itch and scratching! I decided to surprise her by wearing shorts 2 days in a row when I was staying over at her place and she went “ah gal ah, wahhh your legs are soooooooooooooooo fair I didnt even notice before cos you always cover!! You hor shave again?”
So here I am sharing with you what I shared with her.
Why did I decide to share this?
As I was sharing earlier, though I know this is something very personal and embarrassing to me, I have decided to still go ahead and share because I believe it will help a lot of others who wants to get rid of their unwanted hair. This has been bothering me for more than 2 decades and it isn’t easy for me to come out and share, but I have given it a good thought before taking up this project. Ashy from La Vie Aesthetics is very encouraging and understanding in letting me go through the treatment 3 times before sharing my honest opinion and journey here.
If my experience can help many more people who have been taunted by their unwanted hair, then this is all worth it! I was very skeptical initially but after my 3rd treatment, I’ve seen a tremendous improvement thus making me even more excited about sharing them with you!
What is this Super Hair Removal (SHR) technique and isnt it the same as IPL treatment?
This technique called Super Hair Removal (SHR) is to effectively remove unwanted hair permanently from the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line and other areas. A board spectrum light is delivered repetitively (20-30 shots per second) to destroy hair follicles and prevent re-growth, while avoiding injury to the surrounding tissue.
BYEhair uses technology equipped with a rapid cooling system that make sure that you feel comfortable during the treatment.
Traditional IPL technology uses intense light pulses with lower frequency. It requires higher energy light pulses to target on the skin to work. Thus you will experience a more uncomfortable feeling during treatment using IPL, especially for darker skin tone, because more heat energy will be absorbed by your skin. I have personally tried IPL on my arms before and experienced burns when it is near my tattoos. I’ve almost forgotten that I’ve tried IPL before what I remember are the burns (twice somemore) and the intensity used that causes discomfort. I was so worried that SHR is going to be the same but I am so glad I was so wrong! SHR treatment is so comfortable you barely feel a thing and most importantly, IT WORKS!
How does this Super Hair Removal (SHR) feel and is it really painless?
SHR uses board spectrum light, gentler pulses of energy but with a higher frequency (20-30 shots per second) allowing the skin to be heated gently while destroying hair follicles and preventing re-growth. For me who is afraid of pain (who doesnt, well don’t judge me by my tattoos lol), there is really zero pain! The cool plate makes it very comfortable and sometimes on certain areas I felt a little warm but NO PAIN I assure you! I enjoyed all my sessions that I often feel huh, its done? Session over already?
Are you sure its ok even for sensitive skin? What about coarse hair?
SHR targets both fine and coarse hairs thus it reduces discomfort and pain unlike IPL. I have sensitive skin no thanks to all the shaving and I’m happy to know that SHR is ideal and suitable even for sensitive skin so its basically suitable for everyone! Did you know that SHR is considered to be one of the best and effective laser hair removal treatments in Singapore? SHR is so gentle on the skin, it is also highly recommended for Brazilian Hair Removal.
Why choose La Vie Aesthetics?
I like their cozy treatment room and basically my entire experience from each visit; very enjoyable. I feel very comfortable knowing that the different beautician who helped did my treatment are all very knowledgable and well-trained. I understand they go through very strict training where they have to recognise and understand the different hair and skin tone of different clients to know how much “heat” to use.
How many sessions would I need?
It really depends individually because every hair growth is different. The thickness of the hair varies and your skin tone plays a part too. This is why I really appreciate my consultation time with Ashy as she shared with me more details and understand my concerns as well. My pores are bigger and hair is slightly thicker cos I have been shaving for over 2 decades so I might need more sessions. She shared with me some clients see results after 1 session some of them after 3 sessions. Ashy is positive that I will see results after 1st session and it is important to note that the 1st 3 months are crucial so I have head back for the session on time. Ashy recommended me for 6 sessions and we’ll check back again after each session.
Do you still shave everyday after going thru SHR?
(YOU REALLY HAVE TO READ THIS!!)
I told Ashy I used to shave every other day cos my hair growth is fast and just overnight, I wake up seeing little black spikes of hair already. Ashy told me to look out for the period I start shaving after my 1st session and after the 1st shave, when my 2nd shave would be. I didn’t quite understand why I have to lookout for it till after my 2nd session I got more excited cos my shaving time has reduced by a lot!
After 1st session: The next day I saw a bit of hair on certain areas and remembered Ashy told me its normal cos those are the “leftover” hair growth that I’ve shaved and “burnt” by SHR so all I had to do is to just shave and observe when I have to shave it again. I didnt have to shave after 4th day which I was really impressed considering I used to shave every other day? After that it was another 6 days before I had to shave again.
After 2nd session: I noticed my hair growth has slowed down a lot with me having to shave only after the 10th day! I was beyond impressed!
After my 3rd session: I only shaved twice in the entire month!!!!! I was so conscious I was checking my legs thoroughly and making sure there was really no hair cos I really want to wear my skirt and shorts out!
After my 4th session (yesterday): My beautician was telling me she can see my huge pores shrunk a little and the results are significant as I only shaved twice last month! I was elated and thankful!

SURREAL!!! I cannot believe what has been bothering all my life is now “solved” with just 4 SHR sessions with La Vie Aesthetics! BYE BYE all you unwanted hair and leggings and HELLOOOOOOO smooth legs!
I have been wearing leggings with EVERYTHING and telling everyone that I’m into HKG fashion style where they love layering. Ok, well, I do love HKG fashion style but what they dont know is I wear it with everything (including ankle long dresses) is because I want to hide my leg hair or the many scars I have from scratching, no thanks to all the shaving! You wouldnt believe me having to dig for long pants even when I need to just head downstairs to open letter box or like a simple staycation with friends in hotel rooms, I would be the only one in long pants. Sometimes my parents come over and they were like why are you in long pants, not hot meh? I couldn’t tell them its cos I couldnt shave as I have been scratching too much causing my skin to bleed!
I feel so much happier bringing my berms out and wearing dresses on their own when the weather is really hot! I find myself staring into mirrors a lot in shops or toilets and smile each time in disbelief that I’m without my leggings! If your unwanted hair has been bothering you for the longest time, I highly recommend you to call La Vie Aesthetics and get a consultation. Whether it is hair on face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line and other areas, I believe SHR will change your life like it did for me!
