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!!
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 :)
