I just got back from my first session and thought it would be a good idea to share my experience with everyone in case your on the fence on doing the same procedure.
So lets start…
First, you need to realize that getting the laser treatment is NOT a one time thing!
In fact, I was told I’d need to go back as many as 6 times. In between each time I have to wait three weeks so that my hair grows. That’s a lot!
Plus I have light hair and light skin, so I’m told that it’s a little more difficult on my type of body.
But the way it works is that the laser kills a few hair follicles at a time. Also, not all of your hair follicles are growing at the same time. Hence the need to keep going back.
Great business model btw!
Laser hair removal is been around since the 1990s.
It’s also FDA approved, so they say it should be safe anyway.
It took me a while to decide whether I should buy my own machine and do it at home, or go to a spa which is what I ended up doing.
I guess so far so good. As I don’t have any pain or anything like that. They used a numbing cream on my face before they actually use the laser. But I had to pay extra for that.
One thing I was told to do is not play with the hair even though it may look like it’s falling out.
This can cause infection and of course blemishes on the skin if I do. So that’s going to be kind of annoying.
Overall this is going to cost me about $900. It’s a bit of money so that’s why I’ve been debating on it so long.
But the same time the cost of razors and even more importantly the time it takes me to shave my legs every single day far outweighs the $900 and the amount of sessions I have to do.
In the greatest part of his once this is all done it’s done for life.
No more shaving, yay!
