Beauty Review - EPL Hair Removal With NuE Shape Lifestyle - Part 1


Here with me are the 2 beautiful ladies behind NuE Shape Lifestyle, Madeline & Laven. NuE Shape Lifestyle is a one-stop beauty haven which have started business since 2014. Using patented technology with meridian lymphatic point (for face & body) and premium essential oils for total beauty benefits. They even provide customized products & essential oils suited to your skin's needs.


Located on the 2nd level of Bugis Cube (opposite Bugis Junction, beside Liang Seah St.), NuE Shape Lifestyle was easily accessible though that was my first time stepping into the building. I've heard of & seen this building several times but never knew what types of retailers they had here. Mostly beauty palours/salons around here I would say, like a mini Far East Plaza?


The parlour was easily accessible once you get to the second floor of Bugis Cube. The place though small was warm & cosy. My visit that day to NuE Shape Lifestyle was for EPL Hair Removal - aka Energy Pulse Light. EPL hair removal is an advanced version of IPL, which many of you should at least heard of. Both methods are supposedly ways to keep hair growth out for a long time. Some may call it permanent hair removal, others say it keeps hair from growing for a long time, or at least reduces the amounts of hair growth.


Settling down at their little sitting area while filling up my personal details, I was served some hot tea. The 2 ladies, Madeline & Laven were very friendly and nice, made me feel very comfortable being at the parlour.


The small shop had three treatment rooms which were simple in decor yet clean and tidy. - looked sufficiently equipped for a quick pampering session. Luckily the place was not too cold 'cuz I really disliked the feeling of being freezing cold whenever I go for my beauty sessions. 


Just a quick peek into the other room.... and a little introduction on EPL Hair Removal.

How Does EPL Reduce Hair Count?

EPL works by sending “(E) energy pulse light” through the skin and into the hair follicles, targeting the black pigments there. After being absorbed by the black pigment in the hair follicle, the light is converted into heat and destroys the hair follicle by the root. This is why some clients notice smell of burnt hairs during the treatments, which is nothing to be alarmed of as it is very common in such treatments.


So before I start my treatment, let me just show you some pictures of my hairy legs & arms which I have been growing out for months already!! - hahaha. Growing up I've been called various nicknames relating to "hairs", e.g. "hairy", "mao hai" (aka hairy child), "mao mao" (hairy-hairy) - see how annoying kids at school can be. Picture above shows front of my lower legs, some parts of my leg may seem patchy and I think was due to long-term hair removal so my hairs grew out unevenly.


Being naturally hairy I've tried all means to get rid of all the unsightly hairs. For the last 16 years I've tried shaving, to waxing of soft/hard/honey waxes, using epilators, and hair removal creams. Well for sure those methods got rid of hairs but just for very short periods of time. I probably had to repeat those methods on a weekly basis to keep skin looking smooth & hairless.


I'm seriously hairy most places on my body (and face), but lucky for me they aren't the thickest or darkest of hairs. My major concerns were always my arms, legs, upper lip, sideburns (yes I shave them occasionally), needless to say bikini, and my belly area (will shave if I'm gonna don a bikini) - okay I know that sounded like my entire body, lol.


Besides being hairy, some of you may have similar problems as me i.e. ingrown hairs!? Another serious problem I've always had was terrible ingrown hairs. Many therapists have been telling me "oh don't shave, wax", blah-blah-blah... I know that, and I've been told like a million times, and they think I haven't tried it before...zzzzzz.... I don't know why I'm just prone to having ingrown hairs, regardless of the hair removal method I've used (even any types of waxing), these nasty little red bumps just had to keep coming back. And b'cuz of that, some parts of my arms & legs actually look red & bumpy even though I removed the hairs. : (


After many years of trying, I've been recently advised that light removal treatments may possibly help me with BOTH my problems! Rationale - if the light treatments could remove hair either (almost) permanently or for a long time, could that also mean that with lesser hair growth I could have lesser ingrown hair? Sounds legit right? That's what I'm here at NuE Shape Lifestyle for, to help me solve my 16-year old problem!! Stoked!


Muahahaha - my hairy arms..!!!


How Is EPL Treatment Carried Out?

First a pair sunnies-looking glasses was given to me; that would help to prevent any glares from hurting my eyes. Then Laven put on some cold gel on the skin that was to be treated. The coldness of the gel eases any discomfort/heat during the treatments. 

Then she starts to administer the light pulses (shots) one section at a time onto areas that I would like to have treated. The number of "shots" needed to cover the entire area of concern really depends on how large the area is, which also means the larger the area is the longer the time is needed for the treatment and the more shots it requires.



How Long Does Each Session Take?
Typically for upper lip or chin, only 5 minutes is needed. Underarms usually takes 10-15 minutes. And for arms/legs, it can take from 20-40 minutes.
Why Do I Need Several Sessions Of Treatment?
Hair reduction becomes significant after several sessions of the treatment. The number of sessions needed depends on the amount & type of hair being removed. As hair goes through different growth phases, only hairs that are in the active growth phase will be hit/destroyed. The percentage of hairs destroyed varies during each sessions therefore there would be different recommended minimum sessions (for different areas) for best results. Interval of each session is usually 3-4 weeks.
What Are The Care Before & After Treatment?
Hairs have to be shaved before going for treatments and it is recommended to avoid too much sun exposure or tanning 1-2 weeks prior the EPL treatment.
For post treatment it is best to avoid hot showers/sauna/steam baths as well as scrubbing/exfoliating for a week. After a week, you may return to all usual habits. 

I also use this special Solutions Cosmeceuticals anti-ingrown hair serum to keep those nasty bumps at bay. Hope it works for me!! It is my dream come true to have hairless and bumpless legs and arms - keeping my fingers crossed!
