first heard about when I read about it in a beauty magazine years ago. The article explained how this hair removal method, although very effective, was super expensive. And, it also mentioned how there were few centers at the time.
Basically, I finished the article thinking that there was no need to leave my waxing salon (or ditch my trusty razor) for a anytime soon. Well, here we are years later, and pretty much everything about has changed. I didn’t realize how easy this was until a friend told me about her regular appointments a few months ago. “Isn’t expensive?!” I asked. “Doesn’t it hurt?” I wondered.
Let’s just say that in no time I went to skinologycentre to see what was like for myself, and today I’m sharing everything about my personal experience. So here’s the honest truth about how worked for me…
Back when was first starting out (it became commercially available in the ‘90s), the treatment was extremely expensive. Even getting a small area treated was thousands of dollars. Now that is more common, the price tag is much more affordable.
This of course depends on where you are going to go—fancy centers will be more expensive. And it also depends on the size of the treated area—getting both of your legs treated will be way more expensive than doing your underarms. Before my first appointment, I did my research, found a clean and affordable center, and called ahead to make sure prices were within my budget. Now I regularly get my underarms treated for under Rs.1499/- Since laser hair removal is permanent after a certain amount of appointments, the price can be totally worth it if it’s within your budget.
If you’ve ever had any waxing done besides your eyebrows, you know that it’s often a painful experience that you pay money to have someone do for you.
No matter how good your waxer is, it just hurts. Well, I’m pleased to tell you that, while getting isn’t necessarily enjoyable, it is way less painful than waxing. It only hurts about 50% as much!
Yep, you read that right. These are a get-in-get-out kind of appointment. Who doesn’t love those? Now, this is assuming that you are getting a smaller area treated—a full leg appointment will be longer. You will need to go in regularly, every four to six weeks, to continue seeing permanent results. But since the laser is killing off about 10% of the hair follicles each appointments, you will eventually only need to go in for touch up appointments.
Like I said earlier, a few years ago I don’t think I could have found an affordable if my life depended on it. Now, they are way more common. Doing a quick Google search will mostly likely bring up several treatments that are nearby. Just do your research and make sure the price is right before making your first appointment.
Let me know if you have any other questions in the comments. And let me know if you’re going to give this treatment a try!
