Summer is upon us which means short skirts and bikinis. For a completely hairless look I started using an at home laser. I ended up with this particular laser which retails for about $175. I was a little worried that this laser would not be compatible with my tanned skin, but it actually worked out nicely.
You can adjust the strength of the laser. I use the highest strength (which is three green squares). The laser is ready to use when you see the sides light up green.
Just place the laser against your skin and push the button. It doesn’t hurt, it just feels like a rubber band against the skin.
A few pointers
- I usually laser every 2-3 weeks
- Do NOT wax or epilate when you laser. In order for the laser to work the hair has to be in the follicle.
- DO NOT put lotion or any other creams on the area you want to laser. You must have clean skin.
So while I like the results of this laser, I will say it was very time consuming to do this on my legs. I think it took about 1 to 1.5 hours to do both legs.
With that said, these at home lasers are nice, easy to use, and money savers. I will be looking out for Groupons in my area though for professional laser hair removal on my legs. While the hair there is finer and I can go 2-3 days without shaving, I think I want to see if I can get a completely hairless look!
