LASER HAIR REMOVAL… PART 2

Now I know this is a very PERSONAL POST.. but I have had so many people wanting to talk to me about it, that I felt the need to share my story.

So as many of you may have read, I shared a personal journey with the Styled by Jade audience on laser hair removal. And I couldn’t believe the attention it received. Since my first post 4 weeks ago, I have received an influx of private messages, wanting to know how the journey is going! So I thought I would share it publicly and give everyone an update.

So just a little recap.. exactly 4 weeks ago yesterday, I started my own laser hair removal journey. I had my lip, underarms and bikini done. It’s recommended to come in after 2 weeks to get your lip done again and then come in after 4 weeks, to have the other areas done.

In the first week of having laser, I noticed hair growing on my underarms and bikini line, however it was just the original hair that was lasered. After a week, the hair started to fall out! I was so excited and surprised, of how quickly the treatment started to work. I thought I would have to have multiple sessions, before I started to notice anything at all. There was no redness, irritation… NOTHING!! In the past week, I have noticed very little fine hair growing on my underarms, but no where else!! So I went along to my second treatment yesterday and shared my excitement with the gorgeous Danai (Manager of Laser Clinics in Wollongong) I think she may have had a little chuckle or two at me and how excited I was!! lol

So impressed with the first treatment, I included my thighs in the laser process yesterday and was so surprised to not feel a single thing. The other areas, there was a little moment here and there, but my thighs were fantastic!! Now my hair is fairer on my thighs, so i don’t know if that’s the reason… but I’ll be interested to see how they grow back. I’ll keep you updated!!

I really need to share how happy I am and how excited I am about this Summer.. I truly wished that I had only started this process earlier!

Once again.. thank you to the gorgeous girls from Laser Clinics in Wollongong, for not only taking care of me but making me feel so comfortable in the process. x

p.s Winter is truly the best time to have this done!!!!

LASER HAIR REMOVAL | My Journey

I KNOW I KNOW!! This subject is quite a personal one, but I want to open it up for discussion.

I have so many clients, male and female who deal with either being too hairy, sick of having to shave/wax or just like the idea of Laser Hair removal, but don’t know much about it.

I personally have been dealing with the subject of hair removal, for most of my life. I am blessed to be half Italian and half Spanish, but the down side is… I’m also blessed with being hairy! I have waxed my lip, arms, legs and bikini line for years…as well as the usual shaving of my arms bits and legs! And lets be clear, its a chore and it can be quite expensive! Can you imagine the clothing that I could have purchased with all that money!! lol

I had the pleasure of meeting Danai, the Manager of Laser Clinics in Wollongong Central over a month ago. And we had a quick chat about the services that they provide and the subject of Laser Hair removal, really interested me.

So after having a free consultation and understanding what the process is… Yes you must let your hair grow out for 4 weeks, especially if you’ve been waxing (I know I know) that’s why I picked Winter lol I started the process today. I must admit, I was really nervous!! I think I was more scared about the not knowing and the chatter of it hurting, feelings of elastic bands flicking your skin ooouuuucccchhhh!! It all got to me and I felt like a little kid, about to give blood!! Mind you… I have numerous tattoos on my body, that I have no problem with getting… go figure!! 🙂
Danai and her team made me feel so comfortable, explained the whole process to me again and discussed the possible side effects, how the machine works and how many treatments I may need.
HOW DID IT GO, YOU ASK? Well I was more nervous that what I needed to be…. it was the expectation of it hurting, that got me so nervous. I had my lip, underarms and bikini done. Did it hurt? NO I wouldn’t say it hurt, but it didn’t tickle either. Most of the time, I didn’t really feel anything, there were times I felt something for a split second and there were a couple of times that I felt a little flick, I guess you could call it. But that was mainly in the more sensitive areas.

I will definitely be going back.. I’m really looking forward to this Summer and not having to worry about shaving and waxing and the whole negative process of dealing with hair removal in general. To be honest, I wish I did it earlier.

I just want to thank the amazing and very professional team at Laser Clinics in Wollongong, for making this journey a positive one.

I would love to hear your hair removal stories x
