Laser Hair Removal?

Recommended Posts

Hey!! I'm so happy to announce that my marriage is on June 30, 2017. I have started preparations and I'm so excited as the days are near. 

I thought of undergoing laser hair removal from a clinic in Mississauga before my big day. Has anyone here had done it? While researching, I found that laser hair removal doesn't work for people with certain hair or skin color combinations. Is that true? Will there be any side effects after undergoing this procedure? How long will it take for hair to grow back? 

Has anyone here heard about LightSheer Duet laser hair removal method? I have heard that they are quick and comfortable and can remove hairs of most skin type. It seems they need a 4 to 6 sessions for reduction. Is it the same with normal laser treatment? Any thoughts are appreciated. I'm open to any input you have. Thanks!!

I just started at Ideal Image!  Eeek so excited!  I've gotten 2 treatments so far.  Getting my chin, lip, and armpits.  I can already tell a difference in my armpits.  They told me it takes 8-10 treatments i think for permanent removal.

So I've actually done it on my underarms, my legs, my forearms and some brazilian. I've been to a load of different places, and while they were all NYC bases, I have learned a LOT. I can try and answer any questions you might have to the best of my knowledge and experience. 


I'm familiar with the LightSheer Duet. Do you know if it's an alexandrite or soprano machine? Alexandrites Have more of a laser pointer like laser, they feel like a rubber band. Sopranos are supposed to be less painless and have more of a ultrasound like laser. I'm personally not a fan of Sopranos at all. In my opinion, they don't work in the long run.


As far as how many sessions, it depends on the thickness of your hair, your hormones/growth patterns and where it is. For instance, my lower legs took six sessions, I probably only needed five, and my legs have been hair free for about 5 years. My underarms though, took more sessions than I care to remember, and three different laser places. Part of it was because of the above mentioned soprano laser. You bikini, you underarms and your face have similar growth patterns, and have to do with hormones, where as your legs and arms also similar growth patterns. 


Which brings me to my next point, laser hair removal is not 100%. If you want it 100% gone, try electrolysis (which also also for blonde, red and white airs, or darker skin tones). The reason for this laser kills the follicles, but you can still have dormant hairs that could pop up when you hormones change, like with pregnancy or menopause. It will be drastically reduced, but hairs could pop up in those areas in the future. As far as darker skin, or blonde, red hairs and white hairs, the laser reflects and can't pick it up. It's also why you can't be tan.


Also, when they say, stay out of the sun after your appointment, they really mean it. I don't usually burn, and especially not on my forearms and I ended up getting SUPER burnt. Slather that sun screen on. 


Anyway, hope I was helpful!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
