Laser hair removal?

Recommended Posts

Laser hair removal works, it just depends on the type of hair you have. It doesn't do anything for blonde hair, the best results are on fair people with dark hair. I had it done to my legs and underarms a few years ago. It takes at least a year since you have to space out your sessions, hair grows at different intervals. I shave the blonde hairs from my underarms and legs about once a week. Not sure laser hair removal is common for the upper lip as it'd have to be dark and has potential for scarring? I would love to do laser on my bikini area but my underarms hurt so bad I can't imagine how that would be!!

I'm noticing my hair on my upper lip more now that I no longer go tanning. I'm going to look into both electrolosis and laser hair removal.

 

I was reading comments from a few years ago and someone had mentioned something about side effects from the laser being near glands? Does anyone know anything more on this?

 

I wish for once that you could do something completely 100% safe without there ever being side effects!!

i had laser done almost 5yrs ago now in TO at pure med spa Pure Med Spa: Med Spa Home. i did my underarm, lip/chin and bikini. i did about 8-10 sessions, over the space of a year. it cost me about $5000 total. i found it to be extremely painful, i even tried the numbing creams (so add more to the cost it was about $50 for a small a tube (prices may be different now). you can't be out in the sun at all, you can't wax or pluck, only shave and you have to wait at least 6wks for your next appointment. i was never 'smooth' anywhere after treatments. the hair has grown back. the bikini area still comes in but not as thick. the underarm is just a few spruce hairs but enough that i still run the razer by to stay smooth. the lip/chin is the worst. especially the chin i have more hair now than when i got the treatment done. i think 'shaving' made it worse. i find for what it did it's overpriced with little results i'm no better off 5yrs later than when i started. should of did something more valuable with my money than waste it. but that is just my opinion.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
