very cool.  If you don’t mind me asking is it expsensive?  I keep hearing about the lazer hair removal and it sounds great!  I am just super curious about the cost!

Maintenance is every few weeks? I thought it was permanent! πŸ™ Damn.

I’m really glad you posted this!  I have my first appointment next week and I don’t know what to expect.  I’m most curious about what the areas will be like between treatments.  Does the hair grow back a lot?  I’d love an update if you think of it!  πŸ™‚

@Miss Bella … I heard it is different for everyone, but most people need around 5 treatments then some maintenance because hair grows in spurts.  It will be around $1300 for my 5 treatments.  Pretty expensive for me … but I hope worth it! 

@Spaniel … I think maintenance is different for everyone.  They told me once or twice a year for most people.

That is SO weird, because I did too!!! Really it was just a consult, but she did a test area (one underarm…now I kind of HAVE to get the other one done too, lol) while I was there.

I’m going back in a few weeks for my first full treatment (upper lip, sides of face, underarms and bikini line) and am really looking forward to it (well, not to the treatment, but the part when there’e no hair left). I’m half Italian and have been “blessed” with very fair skin and dark hair.

My mum has been doing laser hair removal for the past 1.5 years or so and the results have been amazing.

@okqueenbee– I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised, you probably won’t require much in the way of maintenance. My mum had almost nothing left after her first two treatments, and after she finished the whole course she really hasn’t had to have anything touched up! Obviously this varies from person to person, but here’s hoping you’ll have awesome results with little need for maintenance!

I was soooo interested in this. I have extremely dark hair and my hair follicles are so dark it looks like i didnt shave when i did. So annoying. Not to mention I have very fare skin. I never wear shorts or dresses or skirts etc. I just think its too expensive for me. I dont want to live like this forever though.

Have you tried electrolysis?  It’s permanent, unlike laser, and it makes sense for small areas like yours.  I did it on my bikini line and it was the best money I ever spent.  It might be a bit more costly than laser, but you don’t have to keep going back for treatments once you are done.

I had this done on the upper lip and under arms a year ago. 

From my experience, they didn’t bother to tell me its not 100% all gone.  It’s more like 90% and you’ll still end up with some strays.  It also hurts more as you keep going (sorry!)…at least from what I went through, as well as my mom.

Good for you!
Being very dark haired and having similar fur problems myself, I am using laser treatments as well.
Totally, totally worth it. So far, armpits, lower legs and brazilian bikini are done… Will be moving on to the arms (yeah, gotta do the arms too, so don’t be ashamed, okqueenbee), then upper legs and probably some face work eventually…

Seems drastic? I think every woman who had laser and for who it worked will tell you that it’s worth it. Ah, to never shave or wax again!

It didn’t hurt either for me, except around the ankles, and some areas in the bikini zone… Embarassed
