10 Things You Need To Know Before Getting Laser Hair Removal

I’ve discussed my personal hatred for body hair before. It doesn’t bother me on other people, but I would rather not have any at all. I like my hair to just be on my head and on my eyebrows. That’s it. I’ve been shaving and waxing for a loooong time so I’m pretty used to it. But it gets really annoying after a while, and waxing is expensive.

One of my best friends got laser hair removal, and I’ve been considering it for a while. I finally decided to do it after talking to my friend and wax technician. My wax technician recommended me to a place here in the city, and I was able to get a dealfor a few sessions. I went to my consultation back in November and had my first appointment two weeks ago.

Laser hair removal isn’t for everyone, but it’s certainly something to think about if you want to get rid of your body hair and want to save money on waxing and shaving in the long run. Here are # things you need to know before you do it.

    On May, I began to use depitime hair removal. I’m statisfy with the result now. I used it on my hands first and then my upper lip. Now there is little hair grows and also thinner hair. Also I felt pain free when using it. It’s a great product.
    I get it from http://www.magicqueen.com/Product-DepiTime-Handy-Hair-Removal-62.html by using coupon: ONLY$130. it’s affordable for me.

    I get laser hair removal treatments and I can honestly say it has been one of the best decisions ever. I get it done on my upper lip, arms, under arms, and my bikini area (I went total Brazilian there). If you have light colored hair it won’t get picked up by the laser. After my first appointment with my underarms I was confused as to why my hair grew back so fast, but it’s supposed to happen. If you tug at it it comes right out instantly, or you could wait for it to fall on its own. Honestly, getting it done on the bikini area hurts like a b*tch. Seriously, ouch. That is a sensitive area! But personally, I’d rather endure a few minutes of pain (THAT GO AWAY FAST) than have to wax and shave for the rest of my life. It’s totally worth it, think about it.

      @ Brianna, What are the results from your upper lip? I’m Hispanic/German very fair skin color and I’m noticing a lot of dark upper lip hair some of it is growing differently due to over plucking and now I have 2 dark spot areas more on the sides of my upper lip which is annoying, I went to my dermatologist and she said its ingrown hair making those darker spots and laser hair removal would work great for me, I’m nervous about scarring, blistering and post inflammation hyper-pigmentation.
