Is Laser Hair Removal Worth It?
Let’s discuss it. Is there anything to be concerned about with laser hair removal? I’ve gotten a lot of inquiries about whether or not I’ve used laser hair removal. “How has it helped you?” “Does it really work?” Then, “Does it hurt?”. Now, keep in mind that everyone’s experience will be different, and this article will be based on my own experiences. So let’s get to it!
Yes, I’ve had laser hair removal on the Brazilian, underarms, and face regions of my body. Is it uncomfortable? Yes, in my view. I’ve previously stated that I have a low pain threshold, so the amount of discomfort (for me) is very high, regardless of the area being treated. All of my treatments were done with a numbing cream (which I was advised to use). I’ll get into that later.
So, how does it feel? Even though I was numbed, I could still sense the sensation in some regions. It’s comparable to a snapping rubber band with some additional heat. It felt like someone was using a hot needle to puncture my skin for a brief instant at times. The second was the longest second of my life, in my opinion. Those who can bear it without numbing deserve a round of applause. I’m not sure how it’s done! If you’re aware that your pain threshold is low, ask about numbing cream with your doctor.
I’ve had five treatments on my Brazilian and the hair is rapidly disappearing (like, practically nothing). When I refer to a Brazilian, I don’t mean a bikini. I’ve treated every tiny nook and cranny down there, and let me tell you… it’s truly life-changing. For those of you who don’t want all their hair removed, that is possible! You may leave a little hair on top like a landing strip or martini glass (triangle) pattern while being clean and tidy underneath (yes, even your butt). Consult with your doctor about all of the different options that are available.
Because I can see one or two hairs attempting to emerge, I am probably going in for a little touch-up treatment. Overall, my results have been dramatic. The number of treatments will differ from person to person, which will be determined by your doctor.
Remember: There’s no need to be self-conscious about bearing it all with your laser technician. As a professional, this is our JOB. Whether I’m performing an eyebrow wax or a Brazilian wax, it’s all the same for me, the expert, since I provide Waxing Services on a regular basis. This is what we DO! We’re all women, and we all want the same thing: to be groomed to perfection! Isn’t it true? A few more pointers: The more at ease you are with your therapy, the better your results will be. Trust your expert and simply breathe!
My underarms, like my Brazilian, have had 5 laser treatments and are as smooth as a baby’s bottom! I’m ecstatic that I treated this region because there’s nothing worse than attempting to grow out your hair for waxing (particularly in the summer), or the shadow, irritation, and tiny ingrown hairs from shaving.
I’m really pleased with how smooth my underarms are all day, every day. It may seem trivial, but it has made my life so much easier. I honestly couldn’t have asked for better results, and now I don’t have to worry! It’s really worth the investment (and pain)!
Let me explain this one. When I say “face,” I don’t mean my entire face. I’m talking about the fuzzy side burn hair that gives me a shadow when I put on makeup. I am perpetually envious of those who do not have any facial hair. However, I must pay for that silky smoothness.
This is a new area of therapy for me, and I was a bit hesitant because, much like anything else, there are drawbacks; such as scars. However, I have complete confidence in my professional and the understanding that stems from years of expertise. This is why we pay premium prices to those who know what they’re doing!
I’ve only had three treatments on my face, and the amount of hair has significantly decreased! My skin is smoother, softer, and makeup glides over it like i’ve never experienced before!
Even if the region being treated is small, I was advised to use numbing cream (because I’m a wimp) Numbing cream is available online and in many stores and pharmacies and does not require a prescription. It is best to speak to your specialist about Numbing Cream Recommendations before purchasing. They may have a preferred numbing cream or one that they despise! I always buy the largest tube available, because I’m sure I’ll use it all eventually. Also, be sure to speak with a laser hair removal expert and they’ll be able to help you with more pain management options. Be sure to follow the instructions your specialist as laid out for you about application and processing time after obtaining your numbing cream. This will ensure that your treatment is as pain-free as possible.
At the end of the day, laser hair removal is unpleasant and pricey, but it’s a one-time investment for long-term results. My skin is completely healed and smooth in the areas that I’ve had procedures, and it has never looked (or felt) better! I am obsessed with laser hair removal and want to continue on to more extensive locations like as arms, legs, and perhaps other parts. I’ll keep going until all I have left are my eyebrows and the hair on my head. Click here to read more about how to get a free consultation.
