First Laser Hair Removal Treatment Of 2009

Thursday, April 9th, 2009

Hey everyone, sorry for the long delay between posts! Lots has been happening since I posted last. I’ll do my best to catch you up to speed quickly.

I was very, very stressed out about the hair situation this winter. I went up north for a couple days back in February on a ski trip and went down to NYC back to Romeo and Juliette Laser Hair Removal to see Chris before heading back to Florida. He understood my situation and really wanted to help me continue my laser hair removal treatments. He gave me a great discount because he just wanted to help and try to make this work for me. So I went back in and had my full arms and full legs done again. I realized that I didn’t have my real digital camera with me before I went to shave, so I ended up taking these photos from my iPhones. In these pictures it has been about 6 and a half months since my last full arms/full legs treatment.

So now its been exactly 6 weeks since I had this last treatment with Chris at Romeo and Juliette. How have things been going? Well, first of all it was fantastic to be lasered again and be completely hairless. I can’t express how much greater I feel about myself and how much better I think it looks. My mind was really screwed up because of the hair. I know it seems crazy, but it’s true. Sad, but very true. The downside, as I’ve begun to remember, is the itching associated with the hair growing back! Hair is starting to grow back now and my legs are itching like crazy! I believe that because I hadn’t had laser hair removal in a while, that the hair is not growing back as thin and light as it was before after, say, the 3rd or 4th treatment. So the “pricklyness” is pretty bad right now! I’m really debating whether or not I should shave my legs. I know if I do I will have to keep at it or go back to NYC for more treatments and avoid having to do it for another 6 weeks or so.

I am going to make an effort to do at least another couple treatments this spring/summer and see how everything is going. I am especially concerned about my arm hair at this point. At first it was my leg hair, but then the laser hair removal did actually seem to improve my legs a bit, even after 6 months, but now I’m really stressed and concerned about my arms. So I am definitely going to listen to Chris and try to pound away at my arms and hope that we see some improvements. I’ll figure out what to do about the legs again shorty.

Things are getting very interesting and I’m still hoping for the best even though I know its going to take a while before I will be able to see how things are really going in the long run. Chris at Romeo and Juliette has been great and its great to know hes out there to really try to help me instead of just making a buck.

So I will have more info and updates in the next couple weeks since I’m due for another treatment soon!
