Laser Hair Removal

Today I had my 1st laser hair removal treatment. I absolutely hate shaving and I have been wanting to get laser hair removal since I was in high school and now I am finally doing it! The areas I had treated were my full leg and full bikini. If this goes well, I will eventually try to get laser hair removal on the rest of my body.

Since I have very dark skin, I am harder to treat and they have to use a longer wavelengths, so they use the Nd:YAG laser. Since there are longer wavelengths, there is also less pain I think. For my legs I felt no pain at all, it just felt like I was getting squirted with cold water. I'm assuming this is because there was water coming thru the laser to act as a cooling agent. Now for the bikini, that was a whole 'nother story. It felt like I was getting poked with a needle. The pain wasn't that bad around the bikini line, but it was really painful at the center. But the pain was less than waxing and a little less than my tattoos.

obviously this isn't me, but the laser looked just like this


Afterwards I covered my skin in hydro-cortisone cream so that I wouldn't itch. So far I don't have any pain or burning sensation on my skin. I also haven't noticed any peeling or crusting.

In all I would have to say the experience wasn't that bad, it just was a little awkward when the nurse had me spread my legs to do the bikini area. Also, the clinic also has numbing cream for purchase which can eliminate the pain, I did it with no numbing cream and it wasn't too bad. The whole process took less than an hour. The bikini part was only like 5 min

Have you had laser hair removal or considered getting it?

Thanks for the invite to your great blog! I am a board certified laser hair removal specialist and electrologist. Glad your experience was pleasant. The YAG laser is best for your skin type (5). Your specialist may have informed you of this but you will notice the dead hairs lift out of the skin in a few days. For African American woman, it is important to gently ex foliate the treated areas so they don't cause any irritation. Just a tip I tell my clients that heps. Wishing you great success in the process! Padrica

Thanks for follwing the blog and for the tips! :)
What do you suggest I use to exfoliate the skin?

kim23 said...

thanks for this sharing! I also hate shaving and waxing! I should try this laser hair removal. but how much does this treatment cost?

CurlyChellez said...

The cost varies based on which area you get treated. Bit prices can range from $50-300 for a single treatment. Keep in mind that you usually need 4-6 treatments to get rid of the hair, so purchasing package deals are usually a better option.

Laser Hair Removal is now one of the most common ways to get rid of unwanted hair, and done right, can definitely provide Permanent Hair Removal. I'll consider it as my first option.

i hate shaving too, and I suck at it and often end up with nicks which means scars. Looking forward to your final verdict

CurlyChellez said...

I actually have an appointment today, so I will most likely be posting another update this week.

Avril said...

I think we all choose laser hair removal because we are sick of shaving and waxing....and because this is the only treatment that provides long lasting results we don't care if it's a little big expensive.
I did laser hair removal treatment on all important areas and now I don't even remember how it feels to shave or wax:))
