Hello and happy Sunday. It’s been the longest while since the last time I talked to you about my laser hair removal treatment. I divided my first session into parts 1 and 2, and this time I’m also having two appointments, so in this first post I’m going to talk about my second session of laser hair removal on my armpits and lower abdomen.
As I told you in a previous post, I’ve been having issues with my armpits because they’re now super dry and sensitive. I still had laser done on them, and I didn’t stop and think about my skin being too sensitive until the treatment was underway. As I’ve told you before, what you feel is heat. It increases its intensity with time, so the longer your skin is exposed to it, the more heat you’re going to feel, if that makes any sense. I’d previously experienced no pain whatsoever and hoped that my second session would be just as pain-free. It wasn’t. My right armpit actually hurt, to the point where I almost told the lady who was working on me to stop. Yes, I almost had to take a break. Then we moved on to the left armpit and that didn’t hurt as much, surprisingly.
Then the lady worked on my lower abdomen. What I mean by lower abdomen is the area below the bellybutton down to where the pubes begin. Basically the FUPA, and yes, it’s a problematic area for me because I’ve always been fat there, no matter what I do, and, yes, I also have some hairs there I want to get rid of. I know there are hairy people that go about life showing off their hair with pride, but I’m not one of them.
The lower abdomen didn’t hurt at all. I felt the heat, of course, but it wasn’t as bad as the armpits and it was a really short process. That is something I really appreciate, the fact that sessions have been super short, even when work is done on larger areas.
I didn’t get any irritations or rashes or anything weird that day or the day after. I did put on the lotion I got after my first session, and that always helps soothe the skin even if there are no visible effects of the laser, especially after almost four months of no treatment.
Now tell me, what is a cosmetic treatment you’ve undergone or have been undergoing and what has your experience been with it?
Love, Miss Camila
