Scared of a little laser?

Mary Rambin scared


It’s been YEARS since I had laser hair removal treatment on my….nether regions.  At the time, circa 2007,  it was so painful, I couldn’t stand to finish the treatments so I gave them away to Julia.  We did a whole TMIweekly episode on it in which we all agreed the treatment hurt; Megan even suggested using numbing cream.  I’m just a big baby when it comes to pain.  You know this if you’ve ever watched one of my botox videos. Or the taser video, remember when I volunteered to get tasered at CES?  What the H was I thinking?!

So when I decided to get laser on my arm pits and….nether regions….again, I was a little freaked out.

The attendant talked me down off the ledge and once I let her get started I realized it wasn’t painful AT ALL.  Not even in those super soft places :)  Thank goodness technology has improved the process!!



Mary Rambin laser hair removal


I’m only two treatments in at Laser Away in Santa Monica so I can’t attest if it works.  (LaserAway has tons of locations!)  My friends all love it and rave about their hairlessness, which is why I decided to give it another shot.

The ideal candidate for a successful laser treatment series is someone with dark hair and light skin.  The laser can change the color of your skin so the lighter the better.

Other notable details:

  • 4-6 treatments is necessary to see results.  You spread them out over 6-8 weeks.
  • You shouldn’t be in the sun days before or after your treatment.
  • You can resume normal activity immediately.
  • Groupon and Gilt City are great places to find BIG discounts.
  • Best to do 6-8 months BEFORE bathing suit season so you’re done when it’s time to strip down.

Obviously I am a little late on the treatment…Guess that means I’ll have to find a tropical vacay in December :)

(Full disclosure: no media rate offered by LaserAway.)
