I’m officially pumped. Forever I have wanted to try laser hair removal. Yes, I admit that I have issues with hair. Yes, I admit that I have tried almost every format of hair removal. Yes, I admit that pretty much none of them worked — and the ones that did just flat-out hurt. Hurt meaning extremely painful and this is coming from someone who has sat quietly through over 100 hours of tattooing.
Shaving – annoying. Daily. Constantly replacing blades.
Electric shaving – does not do a great deal for my course hair.
Epilator – hurts like a (insert curse words here) but descent results minus the extreme redness and swelling and soreness afterwards
Waxing – would be great if you didn’t have to pay to have it done on a regular basis or put yourself through torture contorting like a dang circus act to get everything you wish to

So now onto VISS Beauty hair removal system. It is an Intense Pulsated Light for permanent hair reduction and is designed for safe usage in the comfort of your own home. I could just about cry from happiness thinking that this may conclude way too many years of over-analyzing my hair situation… it works on most skin-types, and it can be used almost everywhere on the body. It treats larger areas of hair than other at-home systems, and the cartridges last a lot longer as well. Plus it has been tested to be safe for long-term usage and is said to be essentially painless.
(all information gathered from their website)
There are also alternative cartridges that can be used with the system for skin rejuvenation. (Which are also in my possession) Score. So consider yourself warned… I’m about to read my manual and start my first treatment. My goal is to report on this every two weeks or so because that is the time that the first few treatments need to be spaced apart. I will continue to bring you my annoying mathematical statistics of how much money you would be blowing on other forms of hair removal as well. =)
Wish me luck! Have any of you ever tried laser hair removal? Please let me know, and share your thoughts in the comments section.
