I confess: I love laser hair removal!

5 years ago

How is it possible that I am no better at shaving today than I was as a teenager?  Years of experience clearly did not improve my technique. Plus, I somehow always ended up covering myself in band-aids, which may be fun for my son to use but not so sexy on my legs.

Waxing is no better. Besides pain when you have it done, you always end up with bumps and ingrown hairs afterwards.  A sweet woman with a big smile always greets you at the salon.  But she is not smiling just because she is friendly.  She knows just how much pain she is about to inflict on you.  Yet, every month you come back for more..

So what’s a girl to do for smooth skin?  Three words: LASER HAIR REMOVAL. The most amazing invention ever.

John Mellencamp had it right when he sang “it hurts so good.”  With each zap of the laser I knew that those pesky hairs were being destroyed forever!  I’d say it hurts as much as waxing, but after a few sessions the hair is gone for good.  I never imagined a day where shaving and waxing would be a thing of the past.   

Summer has arrived.  No more nicks and band-aids. No more ingrown hairs. Bikini, here i come.
