I guess you can say I have always been a bit vein. But when you’re a man and you try to look your best and your face is cut and bleeding on your shirt it can get you down.
I am a white man (dark haired) of 24 and shaving for me is a real pain (literally). When I heard about laser hair removal I jumped at the chance. I did some research on it first and found a local clinic that used the Pulsed light and not the epi-light (the epi-light is useless)
They charged me £250 or $400 for one session. Forget all the talk about it’s just like a rubber band hitting your skin. When you have coarse hair removed it feels like someone lighting a match under your skin. It bloody well hurts.
They gave me ice packs to put on my face before and during treatment. I highly recommend taking some pain killers before treatment if you can.
After the laser hair removal on my neck my skin was in agony. I was thinking what the hell I have done. The nurse gave me some tea tree lotion and I went home. I can only best describe my skin looking like chicken skin because it was red and bumpy.
I did not go out for a week as it was obvious my skin was attracting unneeded attention. I thought I would be scarred for life. But after two weeks the redness went down and to my amazement my skin was like a baby’s bottom (ass). I could not believe how smooth it was I could not stop touching it. That was two years ago now.
I have since had one more follow up treatment, I would have more but it is so expensive. I have used Kalo which was rubbish. On the recommendation of this site I have use Tend skin for those nasty ingrown hairs which come back from time to time with great results.
For me laser treatment was effective if not painful and expensive.
