Laser treatment #2


I did my second hair removal treatment!

Ow! They really do STING! Its just the strangest sensation. This time, the nurse practitioner used a machine called Laserscope. Its like a continuous... thing. She puts a very cool aloe gel on my skin. Then that laser runs along and you can HEAR it ZAPPING hair follicles. The thicker the hair I have there, the more it hurts. And it gets warm and hot! Its just strange! First cool then hot then stingy... ow! Except for on my neck where it tickled just because I am a very ticklish person.

I didn't allow her to do anything around my lips because it felt like the laser was zapping all the way to my gums and teeth! Plus it was just an odd odd odd sensation, even if it didn't hurt.

The one we used before was Gentle Yag. I /heard/ it is the best, but that source is very... not reliable. It doesn't hurt as much as the Laserscope. The gentle yag feels like a big burst of air. Sometimes it does sting a lot! But sometimes it doesn't hurt at all. I would rather have that than the laserscope. :/

Anyway, so after my first treatment, as you know, hair grew back but then it broke. Until finally there was normal hair growth that didn't break. I'd say 25 - 50% less hair growth than before and only 1 - 3 ingrown hairs (this is an AMAZING thing for me, people). So, I'm really excited to see what the results will be after today! :)

  1. I just won a $300 coupon for ALS. If you don't mind me asking. Where did you get the hair removal at? Oh and the price.
