I had laser hair reduction 2 days ago on my underarms, bikini (everything) and lower legs. The numbing cream came with the treatment. I told the nurse I would probably jump at the first “zap” because I didn’t know what it would feel like. She zapped me and I didn’t realize she had done it because I didn’t feel anything. It doesn’t hurt.
I started giggling when she got to the middle part of my underarms because it tickled. Same with the bikini area. My shins and ankles were the only area that I could feel. Around the ankle it felt like needle injections, but the laser is always moving, so the discomfort isn’t in the same spot. I feel bad for people who had so much discomfort.
I cannot comment on the results yet, but I’ve got my fingers crossed hoping it works.
Everyone at the clinic was nice, professional and laid-back. Cathy, the nurse who "zapped" me is super cool and friendly. She was very kind, answered all of my questions and made sure I was comfortable through the entire treatment.
