Firstly I would like to highlight that I am a Diabetic and have been for over 15 years. I am insulin dependent and well controlled. I find that shaving or waxing my legs has caused a lot of ingrowing hairs, and irritation over the years, I am now 31 and had to do something about it!!
I initially started off by getting IPL done a year and a half ago. I had about 12 sessions full body. Half way through my sessions I noticed I was still getting little difference in the growth. So after a lot of frustration and wasting my money I cancelled the IPL and decided to give Laser a go.
The best thing I have ever done!!! I purchased the full body bundle and have had 2 sessions of laser on full body. I have to say in comparison to other clinics I have enquired with this has got to be the cheapest. Even better that I picked it up at 50% off the original price.
My first session was good and I noticed a huge difference on my legs, upper lip, and bikini. The treatment was a bit tingly but nothing that caused me a lot of discomfortâ¦ it was bearable. The time spent on the full body does seem quite long but defiantly worth it. I have shaved my legs in between only once, and this did not cause any irritation or in growingâs. But I have spent time exfoliating to keep on top of it.
The second session was great too, as I can see that now I just have patches where thereâs not any growth. It feels good to be able to just wear what I want when and not worry about getting rid of the unwanted hairs. The growth that has come through is very fineâ¦and I hardly notice it so I get away with wearing sleeveless tops all the time!
When I used to have my waxing done, I was left with a number of large scares on the backs of my calves. The waxing encouraged in growing hairs and because of this I ended up with infected boils. These eventually went away when treated by my doctor but it took ages and then I was left with these horrible scares.
These made me feel uncomfortable and from the age of 15 to 30 I had not worn skirts or dresses without tights. Since my treatments I have noticed that the scares have faded, I wasnât told this upon consultation but the laser has helped lighten them. I can now wear skirts and dresses without worrying what my legs look like. They havenât completely gone but are defiantly lighter after the Laser treatments and I feel so much better about it too!
The clinic is spotless! I walked into the building thinking letâs see what this place is all about. I was pleasantly surprised, didnât think it would be as nice and as clean as it is, very professional. I have always had an issue about clinics especially anything to do with skin since my bad waxing experiences, but this place ticks all the boxes! Even the reception area is well presented and the clinics open late evenings, which works for me working unsociable hours!!!
I donât usually take the time out for reviews, but cannot emphasise on how competitive and worth it these treatments are! Saves me all the hassle of thinking about removing unwanted hairâ¦. I canât wait to finish my treatments and be hair free. Go check it out for yourself, you will not be disappointed!
