I started out a month ago to banish some insightly chin hairs that I have. I don’t want to be rushing to the bathroom mirror in the morning plucking out my hairs each day (ew, I know) after I’m married! So I had ONE treatment, and just the one treatment has been phenemenal! A few little soft hairs are left, but not the stubble of wiskers I had before. Now I also have very dense leg hair that has always made me self concious, to the point where I don’t wear shorts, even in the summer. I get bad razor burn, spend a fortune on the expensive razors just to keeep the irritation down, and have stubble within an hour of shaving. (ONE of the downsides of Italian heritage) Now laser on the legs will cost about $600 for two treatments, so with my past experience of having great results after only one, should I go all the way and just do this with “my” money before the wedding? Would you?

I would totally do that! I’d do it for almost every place that hair doesn’t belong! lol : ) do it!

If I had the money, I would get it done on my whole body. If shaving is that big of a pain for you, I would definitely do it!

If the funds are there and it bugged me enough, I’d definitely do it.

I had a terrible experience with lazer hair removal, but it’s been almost 10 years since I was going to sessions. I went for pretty much my whole body (eastern european hair is just as bad! lol) It was super painful and I still wasn’t even half done after more than 15 treatments. If it’s working out for you and your happy with it, I’d go for it though. Let us know how it goes, maybe I’ll give it another go!

I doubt 1-2 treatments is going to be satisfactory for any part of your body. That’s because hair grows in cycles, while you had one chin treatment and it looks good now, your hair will grow in different cycles and you will probably get full growth back in the other cycles. The best recommendation from laser hair specialists is that 6-8 treatments is ideal, more for hormonal areas like your armpits. I am working on my legs & brazilian right now. After 3 treatments all the coarse hair on my legs was almost gone, but I am having 9 treatments total in order to make this permanent.
Not trying to dash all your hopes, but LHR works best when you do consecutive treatments and if you stop at 1 or 2 you will lose that money when the hair grows back and you will have to pay for more treatments than necessary.
It’s way cheaper to buy in packages and groupon has some killer deals.

I say go for it! If shaving is that bad for you, you’ll probably end up spending enough of razors and shaving gel that eventually you could of just paid for the hair removal!

I agree with others that you should look into getting a package deal to make this permanent. My package for my armpits comes with six sessions and six touch ups.

Look into package deals or offers. I got $300 off from a special they had. I am doing my armpits and bikini line and I’ve had 3 treatments so far and now is when I am starting to see results. I did notice that it takes longer to grow after the first treatment but they recommend 2 years (aprox 12 treatments) to make it permanent. If you stop halfway chances are hair is going to grow like it normally does.

I had laser hair removal on my legs over three years ago (I have extremely dark coarse leg hair) and underarms, three treatments each at a doctors office (not a salon).
It has been lifechanging! I could have gotten more treatments to be completely hair free, but now I shave once every two weeks and my stubble when there is any is super soft and fair. I want to have more done on my armpits later on, and I’m thinking of doing my bikini line as well.
I still have to shave but it is nothing like it was before. Now I can go away for a weekend and not take a razor. To be honest, I used to shave and see hair hours later, yuck.
It was a pain waiting between cycles of growth, and the dead hair follicles took a while to fall out so at first I thought it wasn’t working, but it has been a miracle and I’ve had no problems with the hair coming back full force or anything.
