So this week was quite a week for a couple of reasons. One of the reasons being it was my first time having laser hair removal. I would like to start off this post by first stating that I do love myself and I do think I am attractive. I am not vain, but you get it.
There is not too much I would change about me, I pretty much like the skin I’m in but, I thought I hate plucking this area so let’s get rid of it. I saw the Groupon and I went for it. This is not in any way a slam on the business because they did a great job and based on conversations I’ve had with lasered women the response is normal.
My skin swelled up and changed colors. The response was supposed to only last 24 hours, but it has been 4 days and the skin has just turned into a scab and finally started to peel. I just thank God that I am comfortable with myself because walking around with facial scars all week was a little ... not bad, but not good. I also work at a school and only 2 people noticed and asked.
With laser you get 6 treatments and this was just the first. I am not sure I have the strength to go through this 5 more times. I think I may just pluck the pesky hairs a few times a week. Anyway, I will need to decide within the next two weeks.
If you are considering laser hair removal I just wanted to give you a heads up because you could have the same reaction as me. I want to make sure you do a private area your first time around instead of a public one. I would also say buy hydrocortisone 1% the first day you see the reaction, I lingered a little bit and it took a day longer. I may also need to see a dermatologist to make sure all of this will heal normally.
