I think waxing would definitely be better… I had laser hair removal and now never have to care about spots.

If you’re going to try anything new, definitely do a trial well before the wedding, in case it doesn’t turn out like you hoped!

I used to get horrible infected issues when I was in high school due to sweat, deoderant, living in sweaty dance clothes 24/7…but now it is much better.

However, I’ve been using self tanner at home and for some reason my arm pits are like STARK white, and noticeably different…so I’m feeling pretty self conscious about them again.

@souliganprincess: I think they say 1/8 – 1/4th inch of hair for waxing. I don’t know about your underarms, but that wouldn’t take too long to grow out for me…

What about threading? Is there anywhere near you that offers threading for underarms? That might be worth a try too.

Is your primary concern hair? Or do you get ingrowns/irritated spots? Or something else?

Oh man.. Threading your underarms would be -murderously- painful…

I have a similar problem..my hair is SUPER dark, and my skin seriously Twilight white. It’s like transparent under there!

So it looks like I haven’t shaved my armpits, even if there’s no hair! Also, my hair grows REALLY fast, so I’ll have to took into waxing. Maybe that would help.

Any comments on laser? I’ve wanted to try that too…

Laser works, from what I’ve seen – the trouble is it’s super pricey and requires around 6 treatments to get it done, which is time consuming 😛

@souliganprincess:

Waxing is good for this – just make sure you exfoliate for several days to a week after.  This helps prevent ingrown hairs.

I would say Day Spa… They have a license as, specifically, estheticians (skin-care specialists). I wouldn’t get such a sensitive area done by anyone but someone who’s trained for it.
