A year after laser hair removal treatments

My last laser hair removal treatment was June 29th 2009. It has been a year and a half and I’m still happy I went through the laser hair removal process. I spent three years getting treated off and on. I took a few breaks for travel and sun. I believe I ended with 13 treatments. I got a little sloppy about documenting the process, so I may have missed something.

My last treatment settings were 15/26 on the alexandrite Candela GentleLase at Ideal Image in Boca Raton, FL. That is size 15 and 26 joules. I had my upper lip, underarms, and bikini area treated with the goal of never having to shave again – did I reach that goal? Not quite, but close.

My Laser Hair Removal Results One Year After Treatment:

Upper lip – mild improvement, there are fewer dark hairs, but it is still noticeable I get it waxed every few months

Underarms – excellent results! I shave about every 4 months. There are probably a dozen hairs under each arm, which are light and soft.

Bikini area – good results! I don’t really shave the area because no hairs are visible with a swimsuit. The remaining hair is very thin, light and soft.

I would recommend laser hair removal to candidates with light skin and dark hair. I would not recommend using it if Facial Hair was the main objective, but if you’re doing it anyways might as well throw the face in the mix.

Upper lip –
