During my first visit to the Skin House Beauty and Laser Clinic last January, the clinic’s very friendly nurse Tricia, who took care of me during both of my visits, briefed me what laser hair removal was all about. She said that it doesn’t look like I have a need yet for skin tightening. I chose the preventive laser skin tightening still plainly because I was plenty hesitant to have photos of my pits go rounding up in the worldwide web. Not that I stand a chance of overriding Madonna and her infamous armpit Instagram post that recently gone viral. Haha!
Before and After Underarm Laser Hair Removal
A-ha! Not my pits right there just yet. Above image is courtesy of Syneron Candela, the maker of the GentleMax Pro machine that was used on me. Unlike other laser hair removal machines, GentleMax Pro has a patented Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) that provides consistent, epidermal cooling and unparalleled comfort for the patients. GentleMax Pro is FDA approved for permanent hair reduction.
Benefits of Underarm Laser Hair Removal:
- Hair removal
- Pseudofolliculitis Barbae (PFB)
- Skin tightening and wrinkle reduction
In all honesty, what totally sold me to get this Underarm Laser Hair Removal finally done after much self-deliberation, is my underarm’s susceptibility towards developing “folliculitis,” aside from the obvious of not having to shave anymore. The folliculitis occurrence got so bad that the doctor I saw some few years back advised not just against plucking and waxing but shaving altogether! Yikes! Now, I never dreamed of pulling off a Madonna-pits stunt any day. When Tricia mentioned that the UA Laser Hair Removal is able to address this issue, I didn’t need any more convincing. And regarding that doctor’s advice, nope, I don’t always follow doctor’s orders. Haha! But I had to forego plucking and waxing, which last longer than shaving. Inconvenient really, but I really have got not much of a choice…
..until I finally plunged to have the Underarm Laser Hair Removal done two weeks ago! Sweet! 🙂
A few minutes before the laser hair removal procedure, I had ice bags pressed against my pits to kind of give a numb feel. (more…)
