Last week I had the last of my course of laser hair removal treatments at Sk:n clinic in East Finchley. There’s not a huge amount to report that hasn’t been covered in previous posts, but it’s safe to say that I’m pretty much hair free on my underarms and any hair that is there is impossible to detect by touch and only visible if you’re really looking for it…and even then it’s a struggle!
For some reason, this last treatment was the most uncomfortable of them all. I’m not sure why that was, and apologies for too much information, but the treatment occurred slap-bang in the middle of my period which might have something to do with it as I could’ve been over-sensitive…who knows? But it’s a possibility.
Now I’ve completed all six treatments, I’ll be having an evaluation in eight weeks (which will be in 2013; how difficult to fathom is that??!) and so I’ve been asked not to shave my underarms at all in that time so we can see exactly how much hair growth is still happening. I only ever shave just before treatments as that’s what you need to do, but when I shave I don’t really put much effort in as I can’t see any hair so I don’t really know what I’m shaving; it’s just a token gesture to make sure that any fair, stray hairs are removed pre-treatment.
Once I’ve had the evaluation, I’ll write up the results plus a summary page of what happened with the treatments and time frames to give you an idea of what to expect if you decide to have the treatment yourself. It really is so fantastic, as I said, there’s virtually nothing left on my underarms and if I didn’t have to shave pre-treatment then I think it would’ve been quite a while since I bothered shaving at all. This is truly an excellent treatment that’s very, very effective.

My sister had this laser hair removal and believe me the results are outstanding, all the unwanted hair she had is gone now, i am also thinking about this but she told me that it is a bit painful which scares me.
Thanks for your comment. It really is a great treatment and has definitely worked for me; it’s surreal that I have virtually no underarm hair! The pain really isn’t that bad and totally tolerable xx
Even though it pains a bit in initial period, the results you are about to gain from laser hair removal procedure overwhelms all of them.
How would you reassure that no side effects after this?
No idea! I’m not really aware of any side effects but I’m sure there are some and it would be up to your laser practitioner to discuss these with you 🙂
