This is my first time posting to this list, though I have lurked for a little while! I am thankful to have found a forum for these questions! I am 37 years old and have dealt with excess hair for much of my life. I call it “The Curse” because my mom has this problem too!
It has really damaged my self confidence…I don’t wear shorts or feel comfortable in a bathing suit. I have very fair skin and extrememly dark, coarse and curly hair! YIKES!
I normally shave, but get really bad rashes and razor bumps. I have also tried waxing, but hated the “grow back” period between sessions. Also, my hair is so dark and skin so light that I can always see a shadow of my hair beneath the skin! It’s ugly! I am currently considering LHR as a last alternative. I would like to get my bikini, inner thighs and lower legs done. Can anyone give me a general idea of the cost involved and number of sessions usually required to treat these areas? I also would like to know if the area that is being treated can be exposed to the sun afterwards? I am contemplating starting treatments soon before summer vacations.
Thanks so much for listening…It feels great to have a place to talk about such things!
