This week I visited Sk:n for my final, post-laser hair removal* assessment. I’ve had six treatments in total, spaced six weeks apart, and I then came in for the assessment eight weeks after my final treatment. The point of the assessment was to assess (no, really) the effectiveness of my laser hair removal treatments and we concluded that there was roughly 80% reduction on one underarm and about 60% on the other underarm. It’s worth noting that they tend to recommend 6-8 treatments to really finish off the job, and having seen how much of an impact the six treatments had, I’m fairly confident that one or two more would’ve reduced the hair growth to virtually nothing.
So there’s still a bit of hair coming through, but it’s a lot finer, a lot lighter and a lot softer; it’s virtually invisible unless you’re really looking for it and I don’t need to shave more than once a month, if that.
It’s definitely a treatment I would recommend if you want a considerable reduction in hair growth, and whilst it’s difficult to tell whether it could completely and permanently remove hair, it’s certainly had a significant enough impact on my underarm hair for me to be very happy with the treatment.
I won’t go into too much detail about the individual treatments, instead I’ll list links to them so you can read about them all in more detail:
I had my treatments at the East Finchley branch and you can find out more about the treatments available here.
Oh I’d definitely love to have this done!! I go swimming a few times a week and shaving is the bane of my life. I find it such a chore.
I wish it was a bit cheaper…perhaps its something I can save for in 2013! Thanks for the review!
I completely agree, I absolutely hate shaving; not just because it’s a pain but also because I get really bad shaving rash if I’m not really careful.
Credit to you for going swimming so regularly, I’d love your discipline! xx
I have tried this myself and it works really well! We finance loads of these systems to our clients and they always seem to do very well with them 🙂
It is a really good system 🙂
