I just wanted to share my traumatising IPL experience at Musee Platinum (https://www.facebook.com/MUSEEPLATINUMTOKYO) with you guys because I know a lot of you signed up as their customer with their $38 underarm groupon package… This is very important and you would want to know this so please bear with me for this wall of text.
(DISCLAIMER: THAT’S NOT MY HAIR DUH)
As for me I am a package customer for big areas. So, on my second visit with them at Centrepoint Orchard I noticed a shaver on the rack of tools in the treatment room while changing into the gown (I was doing lower legs, v-line and underarm) and picked it up to check it out.
TO MY DIGUST THERE ARE VERY CURLY HAIRS LEFT ON THE SHAVER FROM GOD FUCKING KNOWS HOW MANY CUSTOMERS BEFORE ME. (JUST LOOK AT THE PICTURE.)
VERY GROSSED OUT BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW SUCH THICK CURLY HAIRS ONLY GROW WHERE THE LIGHT DON’T SHINE.
Trusting (RIDICULOUSLY) that the therapists would wash and sanitise the shaver before using it on me, I put it back and lay on the treatment bed when the therapists came in. WELL THEY DIDN’T. THEY PROCEEDED VERY SWIFTLY TO USE THAT SAME RAZOR ON MY LEGS, V-LINE AND UNDERARM IN QUICK SUCCESSION. EVEN THOUGH I ALREADY SHAVED PRIOR TO MY APPOINTMENT.
I just lay there in horror. God only knows what crazy bacteria and diseases I came into contact in as their customer all this time.
IF YOU, LIKE ME, ARE GAGGING (or laughing your head off at this ridiculousness), then PLEASE DO NOT GO BACK THERE, DO NOT BE TEMPTED BY THE CHEAP PACKAGES THEY OFFER, or at the very least INSIST THEY SANITISE IN FRONT OF YOU.
But, knowing how packed their outlets usually are at peak timings, I would seriously think twice before signing up for any of their treatments. I know the $38 unlimited underarm IPL sounds tempting but YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.
I’m just very glad I didn’t go for upper lip or any face part IPL.
DON’T LET SALONS USE ELECTRIC SHAVERS ON YOU TO BE SAFE is all that I’m saying.
PLEASE SHARE! Seriously a lot of people I know are Musee customers and yet their hygiene standards are APPALLING. I went through this shit, and I would’t wish it on anyone of my friends.
Definitely asking for a refund for the rest of my package.
