Laser Hair Removal Works Wonders - Armpits and Bikini Area (Lumenis LightSheer Diode Laser)
I am extremely pleased with my laser hair removal...

I am extremely pleased with my laser hair removal experience. I am hairless (just about) on my armpits and my bikini area is miraculously transformed. Previously I was very self-conscious of my underarms because the dark hairs even when shaved, still left a shadow. I had to shave every day if I wanted to be sleeveless. But I always get these red bumps from ingrown hair follicles that are irritated. So I shaved infrequently. The bikini area was always a mess for me to deal with.
I strongly believe the hair removal success was due to the practioner's experience with the intensity of the laser AND my ethnicity. In my case, I had a R.N. who performed the treatments, and she is simply superb. She can tolerate the awful smell of burning hairs---I say that even though it's all my hairs that got zapped.
The nurse tells me that Asians' hairs respond very well to these lasers (I'm Asian). I had no burns and no scarring. Of course, it was uncomfortable even with the numbing cream. But I do have a high pain tolerance level. A note on the numbing cream: I have this strange delayed reaction to it, so after the actual treatment session, I get all numbed up in the area where the cream was applied for a few hours. Then it wears off.
I'm just so glad that I did my research and got a reputable office that was not too costly. I was afrad at first of the pain, but if you've been through childbirthings and know the temporary pain of plucking hairs off, it shouldn't be a big deal. I put $600 so far on the treatments, but it will be a few hundred dollars more when I get my bikini area fully under control.
