Laser hair removal anyone?
I don’t know about you but I am fed up with waxing! I go to a salon to get my eyebrows and upper lip waxed with ALWAYS the same result – bumps and redness that persist for an entire week. I have tried very upscale salons and spas that ‘promise’ not to leave you with bumps, I have tried hard wax, exfoliating and neutralizing my skin’s pH. You name it – I have tried it, and all with the same disappointing results. So in my frustration with the curse of sensitive skin, I thought I would give laser hair removal a try.
I did my research and found what I thought was a reputable place here in town. It had received a ‘Best of ABQ’ award and they also had the latest technology, which made me feel good about my decision. Upon arrival at the business I was not impressed. I could not read the paperwork I was signing and the woman who was administering my procedure was wearing a baseball cap and gym clothes. However, I went ahead with the procedure.
All I can say is that it was AMAZING! The woman put a slimy gel on my upper lip, asked me to put on some silly looking glasses and then she started on what I call my ‘problem area.’ It took about 2 minutes to do my upper lip and it was less painful than being waxed. It felt like someone was very lightly flicking a rubber band on my upper lip. Before I knew it, I was done! I had no bumps or redness on my skin and no other reactions to it that could be seen. However, I did feel like I had a mild sunburn on my upper lip for about two days but it wasn’t visible. I am very pleased with the results and I am going to be making plans for my eyebrows next. I highly recommend laser hair removal if you are tired of wasting your money on waxing. Have any of you tried something out of your comfort zone?
