A couple of weeks ago I had the third treatment of laser hair removal at Sk:n on my underarms. I’ll be having six treatments in total, so we’re about half way through now. I have a treatment roughly once every six weeks, meaning that it’s been 18 weeks since my first treatment. I’d say that I’ve only had to shave my underarms about 4 times in that duration, bearing in mind that I used to be someone who would shave every couple of days; not because there was a lot of hair, but just because I don’t like anything to show so I shaved a lot!
Whilst there’s still definitely hair coming through, it’s that fair, fluffy hair that can neither be seen nor felt unless you’re on a mission to find it. Since I’ve been having the treatments, the skin under my arms has become a lot more dry. Apparently this isn’t common, so it could be due to the fact that I used to use a lot of moisturising products when I shaved, so now I’m not using them, the skin has started to dry out more. The skin doesn’t feel dry though and instead feels very smooth.
So far, it’s definitely a treatment I’m happy with and the fact that I don’t have to shave so often is a huge bonus. I’ll be most interested to see what happens a few months after I’ve finished treatment to see if the hair stays fair and fine, or if it starts returning back to how it used to be.
