So we’re now over half way in my course of six laser hair removal treatments with Sk:n. I’m still getting a little bit of dryness but I’ve come to the conclusion that that’s due to my deodorant! I stopped using one for a little while, started again this week and realised that the dryness is back so I’m going to hold off with deodorant use for a bit and see if any changes occur.
There are two things of note to report at this point. Firstly, I’m not really shaving my armpits any more (I can’t remember if I mentioned that in the previous post or if I’d said I’d just cut down) and the only time I do shave them is just before the treatment as you have to be hair-free so the laser doesn’t attach to the hair as opposed to the inner follicle.
Secondly, shaving is really difficult now! The hair that is still present on the underarm is so incredibly fine that my usual razor won’t pick it up, so I’m thinking I might have to start using disposable ones on the rare occasions that I do now shave (it’d only be if I knew my underarms were going to be on show; quite when I don’t know!) so that I use a very sharp razor each time that will hopefully pick up the superfine hairs.
I’m still very happy with the treatments and there are no real negative points to address. It’s still a little uncomfortable during treatment, but it is worth noting that I am on the absolute highest laser intensity now and it really isn’t that bad at all.
In summary, the hair removal is doing exactly as it promised; the hair that’s still growing back is virtually undetectable, both by sight and by feel and I’m seriously considering looking into saving up to get my legs done next.
