a friend of mine has had 6 treatments with lightsheer on her legs. it’s been a year since the last one, and her legs are almost perfectly smooth. there are a few fine, light hairs on her thighs, but they are so light that she doesn’t even bother shaving them. ever seen waxing yield these sorts of results?
people are awfully quick to complain about laser, but if you look carefully at many of their quibbles, you’ll see that most had completely unrealistic expectations. sure, there are laser practitioners out there who promise to get rid of 100% of the hair. people believe these lies and spend small fortunes on treatment. but really, whose fault is that? if you’re willing to risk $2,000 on something that’s not guranteed to work, then you should be prepared to lose that money. it’s your responsibility to do the research yourself. isn’t that why we’re here?
as for the costs, i feel that laser is well worth the money. i’m very happy with my results so far, and have no regrets about parting with the cash. i’m a poor full-time student. i work nights to pay my rent and tuition. by the end of my laser treatment, i will have spent almost £2000. if the hair grows back 6 months later, i will stomp around and scream for a while and then try something else. i will have no right to complain because i knew the risks involved.
