A friend of mine asked me the other day if I was still having my laser treatment because I hadn’t written about it in ages. I am, but the hair came back so slowly that i didn’t need my next treatment for 8 weeks! Pretty sweet, right?
The hair that did grow back (eventually) was very fine and sparse – kind of like when you first get hair under your arms when you’re 12 or whatever. The kind of hair that meant I could still wear a singlet to pilates and not be self-conscious because it wasn’t really noticeable.
I had my fourth treatment yesterday and, even though I sharply inhaled, cringed, and moaned like a little b!tch, it didn’t actually hurt. Michaela, the goddess at Leah’s Mid-City Centre who is doing my treatments, was like ‘why are you whinging, it doesn’t hurt’ and she was right. I guess when someone is pointing a laser at your tender bits, your default reaction is to pull faces and cringe, yes?

I have said it before and I’ll say it again (because I like the sound of my own voice) – laser is the best thing I have ever done. Well, top 10. Okay, best hair removal thing I have done, and I wish I had done it a whole lot sooner. Get on it now so that once summer rolls around you can chuck your razor out.
Fun fact – I find my underarms don’t stink as much when I sweat because there’s no hair for the bacteria to cling to. Next time we hang out, I’ll let you evaluate that one out for yourself.
