    Hello all, Carly here. I am merging all the "laser hair removal" threads into one, feel free to add your story, opinion, whatever to this thread. I am merging them in the order that they were originally posted.
    -----------------------------


    Anyone ever try this? I have heard that it works just "sometimes". I am very willing to do this becuase we spend so many days out on the lake during the summer, and also for our wedding/honeymoon in October. I really don't want to spend all of the money if it "might" work. What do you think?! If you can share any experiences, it would help make up my mind!
    Thanks!
    Leigh and Bryan

      I'm in the process of getting it done right now. After one session I've noticed some difference - just a little. I have 4 more sessions to go though and I'll keep you posted.

      Btw - I'm basically a hairy sasquatch woman so any decrease in hair was worth it to me.

        How long does it take normally? I'm scared with me that it will take a whole year before it all disapears! LOL!

            Electrolosis is more permanent. Laser is "hair reduction" not removal. With laser you do appointments every 6ish weeks - it takes 15 minutes for full bikini. It works best if you have light skin and dark hair. I had my first appt in Jan but have been so busy since then I haven't been able to make it. I think my next appt is the end of March.

              Yeah, brazillians are pretty intense! I have been doing them for about a year now, and I'm sick of the torture! It's time for me to try another route!

                I've 6 months with laser.. or maybe more in certain areas.. I'm doing bikini, face, armpits, legs, hands and.. that's all I think..

                The best thing for me was the bikini line.. The hair barely grows... and when it grows it's very very thin.. I have unlimitted sessions so if it grows back I can go again and they'll remove it.. I go every month and it takes about 45 minutes for all the areas..

                  I think I want electrolosis (sp.?) I hate shaving! How often do you have to do this and how much does it cost?

                    Anny and Kate I have a question. I want to do laser but I want to know what you do in between sessions. What I mean to say is if I do a session today and the next session is not for another month or two do you just leave the hair like that? Or do you wax or shave in the meantime? I want to do this but I can't imagine getting it on my face and then having to let the hair on my face grow for months before the next session. Wow I sound like a werewolf don't I? But you know what I mean. LOL.
