It has been about one week since my first laser hair removal treatment with Courtney here at Skin Thereapease and I would like to tell you more about it. I have never had laser hair removal and hadn’t given it much thought until I was asked if I would like to try it. Courtney did a fantastic job of walking me through what to expect and guiding me through the somewhat intimidating process.
After signing the consents, I was led to the back room. I got undressed, crawled under the blankets, and calmed my breathing while I waited a moment for Courtney to come back in. Sunglass type glasses were placed over my eyes before she cleaned my underarms and applied some jelly-like substance. She then explained how it would feel and what would happen throughout the process. Originally I thought it would hurt a little, but it didn’t. I am pretty ticklish so as she glided it over my skin, it tickled a little bit. The process didn’t take very long and soon she was on to my other arm. She repeated everything one last time. I was told not to apply deodorant for the next couple hours to give my underarms a little time to heal.
For a couple hours after, my underarms were a little sensitive to the sleeves on my shirt but not unbearably which was good. I thought the results would be immediate though and when I got in the shower that night I was a little disappointed that I still had hair but I recalled the conversation about it being a process. The results take time but once they are there, your life becomes easier. I was told that it can take up to 9 times for your underarms to be fully bare but I am already noticing that there is a less hair.
I have another appointment 6 weeks from my first appointment to do it again. Hopefully it all goes just as smoothly as the first one!
