Here's my story, My dad has a beard, my mom has a "beard" therefore I was destined thru the grand blend of DNA to get that beard. (ok, it's not a full on beard but being a woman even 1 hair kills confidence!) My sister and mother spent many days plucking/tweezing/shaving...I'd believed it was their weight contributing to their issue, until mine sprouted. I'm not overweight & my hormones are fine. It was just my time I guess. As I tweezed my way thru life for many years I managed to keep it under wraps, then he proposed! How can I walk down the aisle with 5 o'clock shadow? (yes, a bit exaggerated) So as a wedding gift to myself I researched laser hair removal...it took a lot of convincing but I talked myself into "just the consultation"...by the time that was done I had my first appt made! I was scared about the fact I couldn't tweeze, I had NEVER put a razor to my face, but I had to. That was my only choice...So as the month of letting them come to the surface crawled by I actually let my fiance see what I was living with. (that was a mistake, continue hiding it ladies). I had my first appt and the first few days I felt like I had a sunburn in those spots but it didn't look red. But for some reason I had some bruising, this wasn't mentioned at my appt but I didn't really mind. I told everyone what I was doing so they knew, nothing to hide anymore. By week two my hair was all but gone! I have a couple still lingering, afraid to let go but their time will come. I'm so shocked that after one treatment 90% of the hair is gone. I'm sure these results are not typical but I'm ecstatic! My next appt is in a couple weeks. Can't wait!
Had my 2nd treatment today! My original 2nd appt...

One more thing, I'd NEVER go to a salon for a treatment like this...I see a DOCTOR in a DOCTOR'S OFFICE. no one is getting a shampoo and cut in the next seat. Take it seriously, it's an expensive commitment. Do it right! Good Luck!

The staff is incredible & friendly. I only gave 3 stars on things that didn't really apply to me. Didn't need after care, didn't need to call for anything. They did call me to confirm my appt the day before. The payment was given all at once, there was no mention of optional payment plans which would benefit some ppl. And the wait...it's a doctor office, what do you expect? No Photos to share...I'm at work...Shhhh!
