For those of you new to this blog please see my initial post on laser hair removal.
I bought a teambuy for laser hair removal last July and now after ten sessions I've given it my best shot and here's my honest review:
I have fair skin and blonde hair – which makes me a less than ideal candidate. Apparently the ideal laser candidate has olive skin with dark hair. I was told to expect to see a difference after two sessions, I saw nothing. After five sessions I thought I noticed a slight change, but I was wrong. After ten sessions I have no less hair than I had initially. I don't think it worked at all.
I am not sure if it was the fact that I did a Teambuy – the place I went to seemed really rushed and I didn't feel like they took a lot of time. I've never had laser hair removal before but I felt like it should take more than 5 minutes to do a bikini line and underarm. I guess you really do get what you pay for with some of these group buy things.
The only good part about this whole experience is that I can now firmly endorse Elma as an excellent numbing cream. I put Emla on before each treatment and it worked wonders for me! Not sure if I'll ever need it again but at least I know it works!
Bottom Line: If you have blonde hair and fair skin like me I would say laser hair removal is a waste of time, I'm going to stick with waxing and shaving from now on!
