Laser Hair Removal Update
OK, this post is a little overdue. I have 2 different updates!
On 4/27 I went to a new laser center called Touch of Class Medspa & Laser Center. This center uses a different laser, called the LightSheerHS. This laser 22 x 35 mm spot and does like a vacuum suction and then the laser is applied. I treated my underarms and "happy trail". The whole process only took like 5 mins. This laser was a little more painful to me because it had like a burning sensation, but it was so quick that it didnt really matter. I didn't have a scabbing or flaking. I just had a little irritation under on of my arms, but it went away after a day. I havent noticed much difference in my hair, but I purchased 6 treatments for each area, so I have 5 more treatments to go, so I hope its all gone by then. After the treatment I just applied Aloe Vera Gel to my skin.
On 5/2 I went to my usual laser center and I had my legs and bikini area treated again. This time, the nurse used the setting where the laser shoots out cold air instead of cold water and it helped take away from the feeling of the laser. This treatment was virtually painless, I guess since the hair is thinner now, it hurts less. The hair on the bottom half of my leg seems mostly gone, but the hair on my thighs seems mostly the same. I am assuming the hair on my thigh is harder to get rid of since the hair is thinner than the hair on the bottom half of my legs. The hair in my bikini area is noticeable thinner, but not yet completely gone. I only purchased 3 treatments for my legs, so now I am trying to decide if I want to pay for more. I purchased 5 for my bikini, so I still have 2 to go, and I am hoping its done by then...if not, I will probably do 6 more treatments at the other laser center.
