I wanted to try laser hair removal on my chest, stomach, back and arms. Been shaving for years and I am tired of it. Tried laser for the first time and it only took about 1 hour to treat all areas mentioned. I was surprises! I did not think it was uncomfortable at all. The chest area was more sensitive than other areas. Within three weeks of the first treatment, I would say that 85% of the... more
I've had three laser hair removal treatments on my armpits and bikini (etc) and noticed increased sweating in my bikini area, it smells a little odd too. My armpits don't sweat as much but the creases of my legs sweat like a pig. At first I thought it was my soap but eventually realized it was the treatment. I used to wax and shave all the time and never had this problem. When I mentioned it... more
I am a 33-yr old ebony female and mother of 2 lovely kids. All my adult years, I have struggled with too much body hair. For as long as I could remember, I have always had thick, dark hair on my chest, neck, and side-burns. I was told that it was some hormonal imbalance but I did not want to take medication (even though I strongly considered it). I had to suffer shaving, plucking, waxing every... more
I have been going to metamorphosis for almost a year now for laser hair removal. I was a bit nervous when I first decided to go through with this, but once I spoke to Dr. Markmann during my consultation, my worries faded. Everyone in this office is extremely nice and makes you feel calm before you go in for your procedure. Xeuforia is the aesthetician who does the laser procedures and she is... more
I saw a groupon for it, decided I was tired of my super coarse underarm/bikini line hair and just went for it! No more stubble, no more razor burn. I mean, I was shaving anyway, so I didn't feel I was compromising my feminist ideals by going one more step above to something more permanent.
My personal cons? I have super sensitive skin & no money. So, I found doctors who would work... more
I had significant hair growth on my upper lip and chin. I was sick of shaving and plucking, and I was tired of the hit to my self-esteem and femininity of having hair on my face. I did my research and found that I was supposedly a good candidate for laser hair removal because I have very dark hair and very light skin. It also seemed like it would work more quickly and possibly with less... more
I think its great I'm a very busy person and its so hard to find time to shave so with the laser treatments i really don't have to worry about that anymore. In a addition i don't have to worry about razor bumps which is great because my bikini looks amazing as well as my my underarms more
I have had two laser hair removal treatments on my bikini area. They seemed very effective the first couple of months, but now I've had a few months since the last treatment (moved out of area and haven't got around to rescheduling another session) it almost looks the way it always did and I can hardly see the difference between the area that was done and the area that wasn't.
They did say it... more
As a female, having facial hair is very embarrassing and two years ago I decided to do something about it. I’ve undergone laser hair removal on my facial hair for those past two years and I am disappointed in the results.
I chose a reputable clinic in the area and chose their “heavy treatment” contract (I forget what they called it... some fancy name), so I bought more... more
