Laser Hair Removal : Brazillian Area - Johnson City, TN
Like most women, I am not a big fan of hair. I...
I chose to have laser hair removal done by a trusted dermatology clinic that I have gone to for a few years. I was very familiar with their credentials and standards.
My first session was September 06,2013 and it was PAINFUL... which I expected given the area that was being treated. The session lasted 10-15 minutes. My aesthetician Tracey always checked to see if I was ok to continue on. Afterwards, I applied an aloe cream to help with the redness and an ice pack to bring down the swelling. I take Fexofandine(Allegra) every day so that helped with the histamine release and I didn't have much swelling. After the procedure I had no pain and the redness subsided in a day. I was told that the hair would fall out in 7-10 days and after a week, most of the treated hair had fallen out.
My second session was October 6, 2013. I had a little less hair growth but after the second treatment I could see a bigger difference. I had taken an NSAID (Naproxen) the night before and Fexofenadine and that helped with the redness, pain and swelling. It did hurt but was not as painful as the first session. I did have more redness due to the increase in Joules from the laser (they usually go up in power from the first session). The session lasted the same amount of time as the first and the hair fell out after 7 days as well.
I can see the most significant different at the from of my region. I have had more growth on the lips which I will have her focus more on in my next session. I also haven't had my backside done yet and will ask about that at my next session. The most painful areas were closer to the legs and the lips.
