I have always had dark, thick hair, and have always wanted laser hair removal. Before going to the clinic and being out hundreds of dollars, I wanted to try an at-home version so I wouldn’t be out as much if it didn’t work.
IT WORKS! I need to preface this by saying that I still do have hair because I got lazy and haven’t done it in months (kicking myself for that…). I am an ideal candidate, with very dark hair and nearly translucent skin. You’re supposed to do a treatment every two weeks until the hair is gone. I did that for 3 treatments before getting lazy. It only took an hour to treat my lower legs, bikini area, and underarms. I had it on the highest setting and it did not hurt at all, and I do not have a high pain tolerance.
I noticed after 2 treatments that the hair growing back was thinner and softer. Now, months and months later, I still have bald patches on my legs, and the other areas are so much thinner. I don’t have to shave as often. Now I just need to get back into doing it. I really think I might only need to do 3 or 4 more treatments.
