After finding out more about ZAP, I went into my treatment room and I’m so nervous about what’s going to happen there. My treatments are for underarm and Brazilian, yes, the whole area down there.

I know many many many people are curious and wanting to know the process of IPL please read it here: http://zap.co.id/bye-bye-hair/how-zap-wor/# ZAP did provide you with all the details including this:

Saat kamu di ZAP, kamu akan merasakan rasa hangat yang bertahan hingga beberapa detik. Selain itu sebagian orang juga merasakan rasa ‘clekit’ dibawah kulit. Rasa ini sering di deskripsikan seperti dijepret karet kecil. Rasa tidak nyaman ini, tidaklah seberapa dibandingkan dengan ketidaknyamanan saat melakukan waxing. Walaupun hanya sedikit yang mengalami, efek samping seperti kulit kemerahan maupun pembengkakan mungkin terjadi. Efek samping ini dapat bertahan selama beberapa menit hingga beberapa hari kemudian.
Jika dilakukan dengan teknologi yang benar, dan dilakukan oleh operator dengan jam terbang yang tinggi, efeksamping yang mungkin terjadi dapat di hindari. Pengalaman ZAP telah melakukan lebih dari 40.000 prosedur hair removal menjadikan ZAP telah belajar banyak untuk meminimalkan efek samping yang mungkin terjadi maupun rasa tidak nyaman dari treatment hair removal. Ikuti instruksi sebelum dan setelah treatment ZAP, dan selalu berkomunikasi dengan theraphist ZAP saat melakukan treatment.

Now see the video of my first underarm session in ZAP.


So every session it will be like shown above, fast, carefully and professionally.

And here’s my step by step review:

Yes, the image is definitely not pretty, I know, the constant shaving for this past few decades has been the cause. That’s why I took IPL with open arms, widely open underarm ^__^

The therapist carefully checked on my hairs condition whether it is a suitable or not for IPL, and yes, they are suitable, they are black, thick and a lot (why oh why, my mom have almost zero underarm hairs and I got abundant).

Then she cleaned the area, oh yes, my therapist is Ms. Ayun. Ms. Ayun, cleaned it and prepare the skin for shaving. Using a disposable one time only shavers then an after shaved is used. After couple of seconds the blue cold gel is applied on the skin, so the skin stays cool while the roots the one getting ‘light-ed’.


The cold gel is cool and wonderful, and my heart beats so fast haha, I’m so afraid of the pain, I have zero tolerance of pain.

Then . . . it’s ZAP-ing time! Oh wait, it’s not painful. Ms. Ayun kept asking me how it is so the whole treatment is a pleasing experience. Yes, there are a few sudden feeling like bitten by ant, fire ant 😀 but it was like 1/100 compared to waxing and with no side effect like from shaving (ingrown, ouch!). Client can ask the therapist to go higher with the level or lower as everyone’s ability against pain is different. But, if I can handle it, most people can too \^0^/

There are some mixed feeling of the coldness of the gel and the heat from the IPL’s head but overall the session is pleasing and fast too.

I still need more sessions, why?

Terdapat 3 fase dalam pertumbuhan rambut, yaitu anagen, catagen, dan telogen. Hanya rambut yang sedang dalam fase anagen yang mampu menyalurkan energi panas sampai ke akarnya. Sementara rambut-rambut yang sedang pada fase catagen dan telogen akan melanjutkan siklusnya ke fase anagen yang dapat di treatment pada kedatangan berikutnya ke ZAP.

And now, my Brazilian.
I can’t show you any images or video, but I can tell you the experience, it was embarrassing haha! Naked with a stranger but really, Ms. Ayun is a pro, she makes the whole session comfortable and bearable (in terms of being super shy).

The heat felt more down there so she lowered the level of IPL. For both underams it took us around 20 minutes for the whole session while for Brazilian is 45 minutes, front and back, and all the way behind, beneath and a bit inside. Yes, all the hairs down there. The process is the same, cleaning, marking, shaving, cold gel and IPL section by section as there are many hidden ‘objects’ heehee.

And when I’m done, there’s no more heat felt, no inflammation (like after most waxing), no pain whatsoever. It was just that and it’s done. There are some does and dont’s including before coming to ZAP thou’:

Jangan mencabut rambut, waxing, menggunakan krim perontok ataupun bleaching minimal 2 minggu sebelum treatment. Hindari juga paparan sinar matahari langsung dan tanning selama 2 minggu sebelum dan setelah treatment. Jika menggunakan tanning cream, tunggu hingga 2 minggu untuk bisa memulai ZAP treatment. Jika matahari tidak bisa dihindari, selalu gunakan sun block minimum SPF 30 (UVA / UVB). Mencukur rambut diperbolehkan baik sebelum maupun setelah treatment.

And after treatment for 6-8 hours please avoid taking a shower or bath with warm or hot water.

I’ll be back for my second session in 6 weeks like recommended by ZAP and see you all again soon. There will be week by week images of the underarms after session one and all the way until session 5. Stay tune and thank you ZAP, I’ll be back for more.
