I’ve now had my fourth laser hair removal treatment. They say each person is different in how long it will take to get 100% hair removal. I was hoping to be on the “less treatment” end but I think I still have a few more in my future.
The one nice thing about each treatment is they get faster. Of course that is because some of the hair is 100% gone so the technician only has to treat the areas where the hair continues to grow. I did learn a lesson on this visit. Don’t shave before you go!
When To Shave
The answer to this will depend on where you go and what they tell you but I will tell you from my own experience. It is better to shave 2-3 days before your treatment and not sooner. I actually shaved a little the morning of my treatment because I had forgotten to do to it earlier in the week. You don’t want long hair because the hairs can land on your skin in burn. Unfortunately I believe it was the shaving that ended up causing a little more pain and reddening then usual.
My doctor had recommended for pain to take Ibuprofen an hour before my visit. I usually don’t think about it. However before my next appointment in July I’m going to give this a try to I can report in my next post the out come.

If you are thinking about laser hair removal I encourage you to shop around. I know Body Details in South Florida has been my only experience with laser hair removal but their life time guarantee is what I think is very important. I’ve heard of a lot of people that have paid a cheaper price for a number of treatment only to find out that they have to make extra for maintenance or find their hair growing back.
