Us ladies all know the struggles of having to shave our underarms don’t we? It’s not really something which can be avoided sadly, so when Pulse Light Clinic invited me to their Central London Branch to try out a few sessions of Laser Hair removal I knew what I was having done.
There are so many types of Laser Hair Removal and Pulse Light use traditional heat based lasers. My patch test was over in literally a second so it was hard to tell whether it was painful, but when I had my first treatment this was going to be the test. While everyone’s pain threshold is different I didn’t think that the laser hurt too much. It was a little sore as it is quite hot but nothing which was too much to handle.
Everybody I have encountered from the receptionists to the ladies who did both my patch test and first session were absolutely lovely. I found out from both of the women who did the laser that because I had fairer hair I would need a stronger boost of laser removal because it actually works better on people with darker hair which is something I did not know. Pulse Light Clinic is located in Central London with their clinic being housed about a five minute walk from Bank station so it was super easy to get to.
I know it usually takes a lot of treatments to notice anything but even after my first one I noticed the hair did not grow back as quickly. Rather than having to shave every other day I didn’t need to for over two weeks straight after my first treatment, so I was very happy.
I am scheduled in for a second session at the beginning of December so we’ll see how that goes.
Have you ever tried laser, or any other longer term hair removal treatments?
