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.
Here’s more info about my first treatment and second treatment, and more more information about the laser hair removal I’m having, have a look at the Sk:n site.

I’m in the process of Laser hair removal too!! Can’t wait for the finished result!! 🙂
It’s great isn’t it? I’m really enjoying having to shave so infrequently! xx
Good for you Sascha! Three more laser treatments and you’re done. I also experienced dryness during my laser hair removal treatment. I used tea tree oil and moisturizer to keep my skin hydrated.
That’s a really good idea, thanks very much! xx
