I had my first session of laser yesterday and though I would give a few first impressions. Firstly, for those that are worried about pain, I think if I can cope you can. I have extremely sensitive skin, and although it certainly wasn't pain free, I could handle it. It mostly just feels like a short burst of heat, but immediately disappears. If you know about laser you would understand that unlike waxing or shaving, the hair removal is not immediate. In fact laser doesn't even claim to be hair removal, just permanent hair reduction. This means that over time you hair will grow back, but it could take years and will be very minimal.
The entire ession for me was about 10 minutes, including the explanation from th theapist. I think even if you got your etire body done, from head to toe, you could never be there longer than an hour. It is certinly much quicker than waxing, and I hope that over time I will be impressed with the resuslts.
I will keep you updated on how I go, fingers crossed it involves a future of shaving my underarms once a month!
