So what you’re saying is that waxing or shaving doesn’t remove the hair at all?  Or it just grows back too fast?  Normally I’d suggest using a laser method but since you tried it I’m not sure what to suggest.  I think its something I’d contact a doctor, maybe even a dermotologist about.

Laser won’t work fast enough for your vacation in 10 weeks. I think usually you have to go back 5-8 times over the course of a year or so. Sorry 🙁

Sounds like your best bet is waxing.  Waxing is not meant to permanently remove the hair, but it will keep it at bay.  I’d suggest starting now, so that you get a couple waxes done between now and then.  (Some hairs may be growing under the skin as you pull out those above the skin – so a couple waxes should get all of the mid-growth ones).

Laser does work. Here is the process. You have to shave everywhere you want lasered the night before your appointment. You get lasered. It is red and bumpy for a few days (slather yourself with aloe gel kept in the refrigerator). After about 2 to 3 weeks the hair grows and falls out. 6 weeks after you get lasered, the hair starts to come back. You have to get zapped about every 8 weeks. My hair pretty much stopped coming back after my 2nd treatment – it’s amazing!

Your post sounds like you have already tried laser though and it didn’t work for you? Did you only have 1 appointment because you do need to keep going back for several. Also, Laser works best on dark hair/light skin. Because the laser is attracted to the ‘dark area’ if you have a tan (real or fake) or have darker skin or lighter hair it doesn’t find the hair to zap it.
