In my ongoing effort to get beach ready and after my debacles with Brazilian bikini waxing and Nair; I’m taking the plunge into laser hair removal. I have had laser hair removal under my arms about ten years ago. I only had two treatments, so I do still need to shave; but the hair is much thinner than before. I realize laser hair removal is no quick fix and not cheap; but the results will last a long time if not permanently. The lasers target hair follicles, injuring them with a series of light pulses which cause them to be unable to produce hair going forward.
I signed up for six treatments which are eight weeks apart and had my first treatment yesterday, with minimal discomfort. The laser feels like a rubber band flicking your skin. The treatments get progressively more painful as they increase the strength of the laser on your third treatment. Just to be sure, I have a prescription for a numbing cream to use before that visit.
Have you tried laser hair removal before? We’d love for you to share with your fellow readers.
