HEAD TO TOE
HAIR BE GONE!
WAXING PFFFFT! Nothing would get on my goat quicker than going through the intense pain of having hair ripped from my most sensitive regions with nothing other than wax heated to the temperature of hot lava and then seeing new ones appear just over a week later. Are you kidding me? It was time to seek treatment by laser.
Silk was recommended to me by a friend who had various areas treated for hair removal prior to her wedding.
The entire process was much easier than I imagined and a world away from the pain of waxing.
A therapist assesses the area that requires treatment. The hair is then shaved (the laser only has to hit the hair beneath the skin) and the zaps of the laser begin. It's somewhat painful but on a scale of comparison to waxing, probably a four to waxing's 11 out of 10. It’s also less painful the more treatments you have, as hair is more sparse.
I had a course of seven treatments and most of my hair dropped out after the first treatment.
It works best on darker coloured hair and lighter skin tone as the laser picks up on colour contrast. Six month later and barely a hair ever says hello. Winter's the best time for laser treatment, too – so hop on the bandwagon quickly.
