My Laser Hair Removal Experience :)

Women would do anything in the name of beauty, am I right? Going hairless is not something new. I can't complain much because I literally don't have much hair on my body. But still, hair is hair. No matter how thin the hair is, I would get rid of it anyway. I prefer waxing than shaving. Though the waxing process can be quite painful, especially if you wax the underarms areas, it's still better than using a razor. Shaving creates more hair, "shadow" and will eventually darken the areas, not to mention the ingrown hair problems. So the less we shave, the better.

I know I've been wanting to try laser hair removal for so long, but I was scared! So one day I woke up and told myself: "I am done with waxing, and I am going to get the laser treatment instead!". That was about 3 hours before my waxing appointment with a local salon. I canceled the appointment and found myself a good introductory price for a laser hair removal on Groupons. :) YAY for Groupons! If I liked the treatment, I would be charged at a normal price once I used up the Groupon, which I don't mind at all. I call this a "beauty investment". :)

So I called up Royal Laser Med Spa in Pasadena to make an appointment (which was yesterday) and the lady who answered the phone, her name is Ashley by the way, was very nice and made me feel less anxious about the word "laser".  Ha!Ha! Well, yesterday's appointment went quite well. The treatment felt like a a series of rubber band snaps, which was a bit painful. Ouch! I wasn't used to it. So the nurse had to reduce the power a bit so I could tolerate it. Overall, I did not get any blister, and it actually hurt a little which I am not going to lie, but not that bad. The whole process took less than 10 minutes. I was told that it would take up to 7-8 treatments for me to see the result. That would be more "pain" to look forward to, and over $500 to spend, oh well, but I am already excited for my next session!

So, have you guys had a laser hair treatment before? I bet some of you have tried it. :) Tell me which area, and your experience...that if you don't mind to share! I would like to know.

I want to do it also... but I can't afford it right now :x plus I heard that if we have blonde hair (like myself) the laser doesn't work :X

I'm currently having IPL on my underarms which is supposed to be way less painful than laser, and quicker (so less expensive) too!

I've thought about doing it, but it's not something that I can really afford right now. Plus all those sessions needed before you see results kinda puts me off too. I'm looking forward to seeing how your experience with it goes though :)

Laser hair removal is way painless that other hair removal treatments like electrolysis for example. I did a treatment for my underarm hair at one of the best laser hair removal Toronto clinics, 7 sessions and now after almost a year I can hardly see hair growing in the treated area. I also was scared before the treatment, but now I thing I'll go for a bikini line laser hair removal too:)
Good luck with your treatment, and don't worry, is the best choice.
