Skipping the Bikini Wax

Ok…I have to be honest…I skipped the whole bikini wax thing and went straight for the permanent laser hair removal. I thought, “how great would it be to never have to shave my bikini line again?” I know…pretty great!!! My laser hair removal was done at Radiance Medspa in Arizona. I have done a total of 5 sessions and have spent about $750. My first session, I was nervous not knowing what to expect. They give you the option of what style removal you want down there; simple bikini line, landing strip or full Brazilian. Leave your modesty at home! It’s hard to keep it when you are naked and some technician it zapping you on your privates. They explain that it will feel like a hot rubberband snapping your skin and looking back, that made it seem like a picnic. It hurts!! It feels more like being electrocuted with flaming fire! After the first session I got smart and stopped by the bar next door to have a quick liquid pain reliever. THE RESULTS: Worth every painful zap I got!! I still could use one or two more sessions for the process to be complete, but I am happy. I’m Italian and have very dark hair that even with a close shave, you could see. This procedure cured that. You will still have to shave some strays, but I couldn’t recommend laser hair removal more. Fantastic!

1. It is recommended to take Ibuprofen (or Tequila) before your appointment to ease the pain of the zaps. I wish i would have know this.
2. Be aware that it takes about 4-6 sessions for optimum results.
3. Results are not guaranteed. Know that laser hair removal works better on some people than others.
4. Plan on going for treatments about every 6-8 weeks.

    I am looking for feedback on nono laser hair removal, has anyone tried this product? I have looked around and the reviews seem pretty positive for those who have used it for awhile. I am trying to build a consensus here before invest twenty dollars on their shipping and handeling charges. There is a free trial going on. Thanks to all who answer 🙂

    I don’t blame you for skipping this one. 🙂 I have had my eyebrows done, but that is it. I like to think I have a high pain tolerance, but not sure. It’s like massage. I can’t see myself letting someone get that close, guess it’s like a doctor and I have had that for medical reasons. I have heard laser treatments are painful. I have considered doing it, but haven’t had the money to spare.
