I've been considering doing some sort of hair removal for a while now. I decided to start with the bikini area (basic, not extended) since waxing there is ridiculously excruciating. Apparently, LHE (light, heat, energy) isn't the same as laser hair removal, which I didn't know. I bought my 6 sessions at a MedSpa on Living Social (the above price is the approximate cost before subtracting my... more
I was told that I was getting a really good deal (over half off), and that what I wanted was normally over $5000, but looking at the prices here I wonder if maybe I didn't get that great of a deal? I guess there's nothing I can do about it now. The total price was $2650 total for 9 treatments. The area I got done is full brazillian, so my entire vagina and perenia, and then my inner... more
Note: make sure you read the updates below, as I had the treatment again in 2012 with much better results.
About 6 years ago I decided to do laser hair removal. Like most women, I was sick of shaving & waxing so a permanent solution was very appealing. I had my underarms and bikini area done. Unfortunately, I didn't realize that the results would differ depending on who did the... more
Overall id do it again. initally, my free consultation informed me that doing my beard would be $3,100. i said no thanks, and left. they kept emailing me and calling me, and each time they did, the price was a little lower. six months later they gave me an offer for $1,430 and i took it since i felt that was a more reasonable price. my deal, 6 'paid' treatments, one a month, and on the... more
Back in January 2006, I signed up for a 7-session package of underarms, full legs, and bikini line laser hair removal at a place in Seattle that uses (according to their website) the "Palomar MediLux Pulsed-Light Laser System".
I missed 2 sessions due to scheduling issues, but even after only 5 sessions, I am still pleased with the results about 2 years later. These days, I probably shave... more
I've had laser hair removal on my lower neck (front + back) and on my chest, and am happy with the results, but I still have some light thin hairs after 10 treatments over 7 years. (I had laser hair removal 5 times in 2000, and another 5 times over the last two years for touch ups.) The pain on the front of the neck and the upper chest is the worst possible. A great clinic will tell you to... more
I consider myself a Laser Hair Removal Pro. I signed up for a special deal that included, well, everything. I began with treatments on what I considered "priority" areas (face, arms) over a year ago and have now added all the other areas to be treated. I have been to approximately 20+ treatment appointments in the past 18 months to get, yes, everything done. ... more
I was tired of hair creping out of my bathing suit so I opted for a permanent solution, laser hair removal. A friend had told me about a clinic in Bellevue and I made an appt. The laser treatment is fairly simple. Shave the area to be treated, apply some numbing cream one hour before the appt. The technician zaps the hair with a laser gun. The best way to describe the feeling is someone... more
