The best combination for Kili Kili painless hair removal and whitening with Skin Station!


About two months ago, I've been going to beach almost every weekend. Before heading to the trip, I do have a long lists of tasks to accomplish to be "beach ready"; getting my nails done, planning my outfits, shopping for bikinis, packing my stuff and the most crucial part, being hair-free on some areas that needs grooming. I always pay attention on my underarms since I'm used to wearing tube tops and sleeveless whenever I hit the beach but as cliche as it may sound, I don't want to take risk in waxing or even worse plucking or shaving my underarm just for me to have a hair-free armpits!

(Before the treatment)


I am still lucky enough that my underarms are not as hairy as compared to others. Yes, it does have hair but it's very subtle that you have to look at it closely for you to see it. But hey, no one wants noticeable hair on your photo-ops.

I have discovered about Diode Laser for underarm with Skinstation's Facebook promotions. I got curious and since it was very timely, I tried researching on it. According to Skin station, laser hair removal is by no means a one-and-done-type treatment to dispel errant hairs from your skin. The number of sessions depends on the area of the body being treated. Notably, the face requires around 8 to 10 sessions to achieve desired results compared to 5 to 6 sessions for the legs. After which, 1 to 2 touch-up treatments every year maybe needed. Other factors to be considered are skin color, coarseness of hair and gender.

(Before the treatment: hair are still visible.)
Here are Skinstation's guidelines before undergoing the Diode Laser treatment:
1. Do not shave area to be treated for 2 weeks or at least 3 to 5 days before appointment.
2. Do not pluck, wax or use a depilatory in the areas you wish to treat 4 weeks prior to treatment.
3. Avoid unnecessary UV exposure to the areas to be treated 4 weeks prior to treatment.
4. Avoid self-tanning products 4 weeks prior to treatment.
5. Do not apply Retinol/Retioic acid-containing creams/lotions 1 week before the treatment.


I usually book my appointment via phone call or online which ever is more convenient for me at the moment. The waiting time to do my services is just a downtime of 3-5 minutes just for the doctor/attendant to prepare the things that are needed.

Diode Laser's treatment is surprisingly fast and painless. They will ask you to wear a tube dress towel before the treatment. Afterwards, the procedure will start by cleaning the are and lightly shaving the hair of your armpit. Just a note, they are very careful in doing this and the hands of the doctor or attendant is very light to avoid friction while shaving. Then, the aesthetician will put gel in your armpit; this is my favorite part of the treatment because the gel is cold and kinda ticklish if you have sensitive underarms. They will do the laser for about 15-20 minutes. You'll just feel warmth on some spots but it was never painful; you won't even feel a sting. Lastly, they will put an after treatment cream that helps in slowing down the growth of hair in your armpit. The whole session would just take about 30 minutes and you'll see the result in an instant!


After two weeks of my Diode Laser, I tried their Intensive Underarm Whitening – This procedure combines the synergistic benefits of exfoliation by Glycolic Acid, Diamond Peel, pure MaxiLight Whitening Essence from wheat extract and Crystal Collagen Mask. For best results, the treatment should be done every 2 to 3 weeks. 

As compared to the the Diode Laser, the Intensive Underarm Whitening would last about 35-45 minutes. Same as the first procedure, the aesthetician would clean up the area followed by putting a gauze in the armpit and would proceed on using the laser for intensive whitening.

For the Diode Hair Laser removal, as soon as the procedure is done, you'll notice a difference on the skin of your underarms. It's is smoother after the treatment. You'll also notice that it lessen the chicken skin like on the area. Lastly, with this treatment, it takes time before the hair to grow back in just one session. For me, it took me two months before I tried the second session and it keeps getting better and better.

For the Axilight Intensive Underarm Whitening, as expected, the results is not that visible in first session. It does lighten the skin but it would really take time to see the desired color and texture.


Overall, I both love the treatments and I would definitely continue with my sessions. It might take some time as the treatments need to be done 2 - 6 weeks apart. Nevertheless, Skinstation is doing a great job in both treatments. Reviews will be updated from time to time.

  3. I’ve had a great experience with Toronto laser hair removal clinic! They are very professional and considerate with my needs and requests. I’m currently getting laser done by them, and they made sure I was comfortable and explained the process to me thoroughly which was great. It was practically painless which was a pleasant surprise! :) I’ve also gotten a few massages by their incredible masseuse, Roya, who gave me the best relaxing massage I’ve ever had. Practically felt like jelly after :D Will definitely continue to get massages and am excited to see how the final result of my laser treatments will turn out!
