I have had it done. It was minimally worth it, deffinitly not worth how much it costs.

It would really only suggest it if you have the money to spare and you are very light skinned with very dark hair. The lighter your skin is the better it will work. The darker your hair is the better it will work. If you tan easily and/or have lighter hair it will not work as well.

I had it done for 4 years and still have some of the hair that I had. I expected better results. I am fairly light skinned but do tan easily and my hair is fairly dark but not black.

There are also some other posts on here about it.

I had it done several years ago…not the “full area,” but I had the upper inner thigh up to where the underwear is. I LOVE it. I never have to shave. I would get terrible razor burn and irritation and now no more! It was expensive but I did it when I was in college and even with that I was able to swing it. Totally worth it. Now I do have fair skin and dark hair, so it did work well for me.

liartist: Was the process painful at all? I have extremely sensitive skin and shaving hurts even if I don’t cut myself – When I do it’s a lot worse, razor burn, cuts, everything. I have very light skin – I don’t tan, and dark brown hair. How long is the process and is each session painful?

@hopefloats:  I actually started yesterday on my underarms and brazilian. It is less painful than waxing but it’s not exactly pain free. Hot rubber band is a good description. But it’s super fast and easy. Totally worth it, in my opinion. The darker your hair, the better your results will be.

BEST THING I’VE DONE.

I’m doing my legs, arm pits and bikini area.

The bikini is a slow area and it’s annoying the 2-3 days after the sessions cause you shave and the hair growing itches Embarassed. I had thick hair there and now it’s less and thinner and it grows slower.

I’m still in the middle of the treatment but I don’t regret it a bit. Since my hair was extremely think I might need more than 20 sessions which is what I payed for but I’d totally pay extra sessions if needed, the result’s been extremely good and FI’s so happy with it he swears he’ll pay the extra sessions for me.

I must say I have dark hair and light skin (not really fair skin, but the sun doesn’t shine there). The contract stated that the process’ results decrease with lighter hair and darker skin.

My treatment’s done with diode laser, I had a previous tratment with amethyst laser and it did nothing.

I have a question for some of you ladies who’ve done it.  How much did it cost per session?

@kayberry:  It’s a bit painful cuase they’re burning the folicule and it feels like they’re pulling the hairs one by one. The bikini hurts more than the legs but where I go they numb the area with ice and I don’t feel a thing.

I used to get razor burns too and the laser irritation is way less than that and (as the pain) it get’s better with time, besides they usually apply some product afterwards for the irritation.

I had a WHOLE LOT of lazer hair removal done, and it was NOT a good experience. I have very thick body hair and darker, olive skin. It HURT. I even applied lots of topical lidocaine before each treatment and I still foudn it unbearable. I do wax my lip, eyebrows, arms; and I dont consider myself to have a low pain thresh-hold. I went in to get underarms, belly, bikini areas and legs done. I went over 18 months and then gave up. Now I have patchy armpits and legs. I dont know if I just have huge hair roots, but after being zapped by the lazer, the dead hair would come out of the skin (like popping a think pimple, sorry for the mental image) and smell of burnt hair. The skin would then be red and blotchy for days afterwards.

 

I dont know if I just wasn’t a good candidate, but if you get good results with waxing, i would just stick to that.

@hopefloats:  It’s diode laser. My hair’s think like shamefully thick. They reccomend 12 sessions but might be due to the intensity, they started with really low mHz and they increase it with time (it might be the way they work). I’ve heard of some places that claim you’ll be done with 3 sessions but I’m extremely happy with the results I’ve had so far.

@beekiss:  I don’t think I would be a lot of help here since I’m in Mexico but it was around $3000 pesos here for my legs, bikini and armpits (is it the right spelling?). It’s around 250 USD.
