Any Laser Hair Removal Experiences?

Recommended Posts

I just had my 1st session yesterday - and it hurt like a you know what, but not bad enough for me to quit doing it! I know that the results are going to FAR outweigh the pain!! :)

I'm going for my first treatment on Tuesday to get my bikini area done - I can't wait! I got a really good deal on a 4 treatment package, so hopefully it all goes well since now I have paid in advance, lol!

My bikini sessions are better now - but still hurts in certain areas...

Before the new HST tax hit treatments, I got myself a package od 4 underarm treatments.

Hopefully it's not as painful, but I have a feeling it'll be the same.

I used numbing cream for the first time last friday and I have to say that in most areas I barely felt a thing! I would highly recommend it (especially since they usually turn up the laser intensity with each visit)

I have had 4 treatments of lazer on my underarms..hardly painful at all but very quick for such a small area too... I noticed after the first 2 how the hair barely grows! Going to get two more sessions to be certain..

 

Want to try the bikini next....that would be soo worth it but probable more painful so I am a little nervous!

I just had my first bikini treatment today, and based on what I've read on here I think I must be a bit of a freak 'cause it really didn't hurt much at all!!! At it's worst, it felt like hairs being tweezed but that was only a small section at the top. Most places I could only feel a little, or not even at all. Compared to a bikini wax, this was a breeze. And no numbing cream either. Hopefully it works! I'm ecstatic :)

For people in the states, have you ever employed the services of different laser places? I'm currently using Ideal Image and they seem to have their stuff together (but expensive). I see ads for Smooth Solutions all the time and it seems to be significantly less, but are their lasers of less quality as well? P.S. I went to Renaissance Laser a few years ago and well...i'm back at Ideal Image now cuz it (Renaissance) didnt work (for like 6+ treatments mind you). I would like to pay less, but worry that I'm not getting good quality laser if I go elsewhere

Hey ladies! Ohhh vanity. How we all fall victim to it. lol 

 

I'm about to have my second session on my hoo-ha (the whole she-bang, front, back, get rid of it!) on Monday. I've heard so many stories about the pain, but I was totally fine. I described it as a hot pinch. Not bad though. There was no swelling, no after pains,... I didn't use a numbing cream beforehand, and didn't need anything after, either. I'm also rather dark skinned (brunette/dark brown hair, tanned skin, dark Vietnamese), so I wasn't sure how the results would turn out. Surprisingly, the results of the first session have been great. Hoping it only takes a few sessions, but realistically I understand it will probably take more like 6-8. Here's hoping though! 

 

Also trying to figure out what else I want done. Armpits for sure. Leaning toward doing upper lips, too. I mean, if I could afford it, I'd laser everything but my head hair and eyebrows! :)
