I had a consultation today for facial hair laser removal.
Two test patches, one with Intense Pulse Light, and one with a Ruby* Laser.
IPL hurts more than laser, which hurts quite a bit. Laser feels like somebody flicking an elastic band on your skin, and IPL feels like somebody doing it with 5 elastic bands.
I've been told that with my hair type, I will need four sessions at four weekly intervals, and a further 6 at 6 weekly intervals, costing £850 for the 10 sessions.
I did not tell my consultant that I am TV/CD/Whatever the hell I am, but she knew, straight off. Apparently, my face shape is quite feminine. Even though I find people in the wrong gender do tend to have the feminine/masculine features of their correct gender, I never considered myself to follow that trend. I don't know whether it was my nails, or turning up in a dress that gave me away. just kidding. My nails aren't that long .
In an earlier post, I said that I wanted my wife to be the first person I told...well, that went out of the window. It was weird saying out loud to somebody that I was born the wrong gender.
I am very suitable for either IPL or laser hair removal, and I am going to go through with it. It's expensive, but not as expensive as I thought it would be. That said, I'll be clothes shopping less!
I hope it does decrease in sensation. When I shaved the following day (yesterday) it was tender around the two spots that were hair free (yey), they were only a centimetre in size (boo) so I didn't have too much discomfort.
I'm booking my first full face treatment to happen this month, and then there'll be another 4 weeks later.
I'm hoping I can get 3 treatments in before I meet the girls in November. There's supposed to be visible results by then
@Emily: Because I use Fusion Proglide, it's about £10 a month in blades and foam. So 85 months. Or 7 years (eek). I wish I'd not done that calculation, .
So it was like first time epilation egh? Oh, I remember that; like being attacked by a squadron of angry bees. It even drew blood. The bits I did looked like a disaster zone.
I looked into buying one of those home laser kits by Rio. Nearly bought one last year, but the reviews said they were rubbish. Not powerful enough apparently; you're only allowed to buy mickey mouse ones for home use, even though they were still about £300 for the 'carpet bomber' version.
Don't the hairs sort of shrivel up, & then fall out later?
