Some people like hair, some don’t. I am one of those people that has an excessive amount of hair on my legs and constantly shaving was a true chore. I have wanted to get rid my hair to reduce my issues with self-esteem and to prevent more painful ingrown hairs. Those painful bumps would ALWAYS show up in my legs every time I shaved. Sadly, those scars take forever to fade which just added to my frustration. I have tried Veet, exfoliation, Waxing, and even epilating to no avail. Once I started working, I decided that I was going to get rid of my hair once and for all. Not only for myself but also to look good for my wedding day (and night!).
After saving up, I finally went, and I must say that my life is changed. I know that sounds cliché, but if you knew how much stress and trauma my unwanted hair caused in my life, you would agree. I started my hair removal sessions a few months before my wedding date and they were complete just a few weeks prior to the big day. I was so pleased with the results that I am now going forward with getting rid of my underarm and facial hair! Even though the service isn’t cheap, I think it’s 100% worth the time and money to look your best.
The great thing is that I won’t have to go back for treatments for a very long time. Hair removal is mostly permanent, but of course, hormonal changes or age can cause some hair to return over time. Now let me tell you a bit about the service I chose.
I researched several companies and laser removal options in my area and settled on Super Hair Removal (SHR). I chose this one because it’s painless and I was tired of the constant pain that comes with ingrown hair. The laser that is used is low intensity and given in a short burst, which allows the hair follicles to be deactivated without pain.
The truth about the sessions is that my first couple of sessions were more painful than they advertised. This wasn’t because of the laser, but rather because my technician wasn’t moving the laser at the right speed over my skin. Once I changed techs, all I felt was extra heat on my skin instead of that snapping rubber band type sensation that can be painful. Make sure that if you feel pain when you go, to let your aesthetician know right away, don’t stay silent and suffer like I did.
Another great thing about SHR is that it works for all skin tones. One thing you should keep in mind about laser hair removal is that it will always work better on hair that is dark and hair that is thick, regardless of skin tone. This is one of the reasons you need a few sessions to get rid of all of your unwanted hair.
My sessions at Ava Laser Clinic, aside from the first few, have been wonderful. The clinic doctors are easy to talk to and give great advice that fits each patient as opposed to cookie-cutter advice. I am sure you might think that going to a clinic with cheaper rates will be the same, but I guarantee that when you contact Ava Laser Clinic, you will love their service.
