Over 40 treatments

Over 40 treatments

Postby mtramos76 » Thu Aug 18, 2011 6:34 pm

Hi everyone, I started my laser hair removal on 8/25/2007. The laser hair place I go to has a lifetime guarantee therefore I paid a flat price. The place I go to is extremely professional and very clean. I do some areas of my face, upper lip and some parts of my neck every 6-8 weeks or so. I also do my under arms. The process is not a very easy one. I started seeing results about 8-10 treatments after. At times I felt like I was getting hairier and I was really upset about it. The strange thing is that I would go weeks without a single hair and then all of a sudden I had these long hairs and I was like what the heck is happening. Most hairs from my neck are almost all gone. At this point they pretty much do spot zaps in that area. My upper lip has worked awesome. I used to pluck my upper lip every day to the point that I would scar myself and even had these awful dark shadows. They are forever gone, thank goodness and so is the hair. That area I think is the best area that has worked so far. I love it. The face is an ongoing process but I have seen a great reduction. I always tell the girls to please try to not touch areas that they shouldn't. The underarms I think I'm done with (I started that area in 2009) That area has worked great. I Have the nicest smoothest underarms. I want to start letting go a bit. Maybe instead of every 6-8 weeks I'll start going every 10-12. See if this makes a difference. Has anybody else had as many treatments as me?? Please share your experiences. I believe i'm at treatment 42. So that 6-8 treatments is a bunch of bull :)

I agree 100% - that's total bull. I think they tell you that merely to get you to say yes to begin. I gave up counting my treatments!
It's now 2011 and I am going on years here, NOT months. :shock:
(although everyone is different)

If you make the decision for LHR, be prepared possibly for a long time.
