Laser Hair Removal Part 2: Because It's Awesome

Urban Med Spa

I'm a little ways in to my laser hair removal journey, so I want to update you guys about it. Last time I talked about why I decided to start with laser hair removal and my history with years and years of waxing. I just went in for my first session and everything was better than I even imagined. Urban Med Spa is beautiful, the staff is sweet and gorgeous, and they answered any questions I had before we began. Though I had minimal questions and concerns, I was interested to learn about the laser and how it functions -- primarily that it targets through the dermal layer and finds the dark follicle beneath the surface. For this reason, it's best to be clean-shaven before you get a laser treatment, so that the laser seeks deeper targeting for the pigment of the hair. This alone already makes it more convenient than waxing, which demands a certain level of hair growth.

My experience during the actual treatment was stellar. The pain level was super low, and I had zero irritation afterwards. They told me to keep an eye on redness and sensitivity, but I really didn't have any. This was new for me, as a bikini wax generally leaves me feeling extremely tender for about 24 hours. Suffice it to say, my first laser session was a piece of cake. Truly a pleasure, especially with the lavish and lovely accommodations and Urban Med Spa.

Watch my video to hear more about the experience, and stay tuned for further adventures. I am so glad I finally took the plunge and decided to move forward with laser hair removal. This is going to be a very sound investment for me and my skin.
