My Fifth Laser Hair Removal Session: Upper Arms

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008

I had my fifth laser hair removal treatment in New York City last week and this time I ONLY got my upper arms done. As I wrote in the last blog post, I’ve decided to wait and see how things are looking now, after more than just 12 weeks between treatments and see how my arms and legs turn out. I decided to just have my upper arms done because I’m seeing more new hair growth on my upper arms and I need to stop this and get rid of these hairs for good. So I may go in for a sixth session in 6, 8, or 10 weeks, after I’ve had some time to let the hair grow back and see how dark, thick, and long it turns out to be.

The big news about this treatment is that it may be my last laser hair removal treatment in New York City for some time now. I’m headed back to Florida for the winter so I may end up going back to Dermacare South Beach for my treatments. Although, I’m a little hesitant now after going to Romeo and Julliette and getting great service and having laser techs who know their laser settings. I’m still a little confused as to why Dermacare used such a high millisecond setting during my treatment. I’m extremely happy with Romeo and Juliette after going there three times now.

So how did my fifth laser hair removal session go? It was quick. Just having your upper arms done only takes about 15 minutes. I was in an out of their office in probably 25 minutes. It only ended up costing me $150 too – $900 cheaper than having full legs and full arms done! The laser tech did a great job and we ended up using 18 joules, at 3 milliseconds with a 15mm spot size.

I had a few other things to do in NYC this trip so I didn’t get to go home and take pictures after this session. I still haven’t taken pictures but I will be sure to do so tomorrow and post them along with some more photos of my lower arms and legs, as I’m interested in documenting everything, every week now, to see if things get much hairer or not!

Laser Hair Removal Session #4 On Monday

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2008

I setup my next laser hair removal appointment this afternoon with Romeo and Juliette in NYC. I’ll be going in on Monday for my fourth laser hair removal session and I’m really looking forward to it! I’ll try to post updates on Monday or Tuesday after the session.

Laser Hair Removal Session #3 In New York City Tomorrow

Wednesday, May 7th, 2008

Early tomorrow morning I’ll be driving to New York City for an afternoon laser hair removal appointment. This will be my third laser hair removal treatment and the first at this new center in New York City. Everything I’ve seen about this place has been very positive, even though some said the price was expensive. But I should be paying around $1000 for this session, unless I go with a package deal. I may get the session for as low as $950 if I don’t come back for touch ups in 2-3 weeks, but I haven’t dealth with the exact specifics of that yet, but I will let everyone know what I ended up paying after tomorrow.

Additionally, I called my center in South Florida today and got my laser settings, so the new NYC center can be sure to use the same, or higher, settings. They were using the Cynosure Elite 755 Alexandrite at 18 joules with a 25 milliseconds pulse and a 12mm spot size. The Florida clinic said that they should probably up the settings to at least 20 joules tomorrow.

So right now I’m all shaved up and ready to go tomorrow. I probably won’t be able to take pictures right after the sessions, like I have in the past, since I’m not able to go right home and snap away 20 minutes after. I’ll try to figure something out tomorrow though. Maybe I’ll bring in my camera or iPhone in and take them right there after I’m done.

More to come tomorrow night or Friday!…..

I Think I Found My New Laser Hair Removal Center In NYC

Monday, April 28th, 2008

So I’ve been looking around and doing some research on laser hair removal centers around CT, Boston and New York City and I think I just found a new center that I really want to try in NYC! I was pretty set on going back to Florida and actually tried to call my center a few times, but I think I called just a little to late each day, so I haven’t booked any more treatments with them. I was planning on getting same day round-trip plane tickets and figuring that into my budget and everything so I could make the Florida thing work, but if this place in NYC is as good as everyone says it is, then I think its definitely worth a shot! They’ve won best laser hair removal center in NYC on CitySearch a few times, and the guy who owns it is pretty big in the laser hair removal industry, so I decided to give them a call and talk to someone. Turns out I was put through to the owner! I explained my situation and heard what he had to offer and things went really well. They definitely don’t try and pressure you to go with them. Also, I was quoted a very similar price to what I’ve been paying, and what I was expecting to pay for going back to FL, minus the flight expenses, so this NYC center is sounding very attractive! Also, I made sure they have the Cynosure Elite model I’ve been using, which they do!

It’s SO much easier for me to just drive to NYC and then drive home than it is for me to drive to the airport (2 hours away) then fly down to FL, get a rental car and drive to the center, then reverse the whole process!

Oh, and the owner explained how the sessions price includes touch ups which are done between sessions to make sure everything is looking good! I’m not sure I would do these sessions, because NYC is still a little bit of a journey for me to make every couple weeks, but its an attractive offer.

So if you can’t already figure out the name of the NYC laser hair removal center that I’m talking about then you’ll have to wait. Sorry! I haven’t actually committed to anything with them yet, but I’m pretty close. Especially because I need to go for my next session in about 1-2 weeks. I’m just trying to decide if I want to commit to a package of 3 or 4 sessions or just go with one session for now and see how things go in NYC. If things go well, I’ll definitely let everyone know which NYC laser hair removal center I’m going to! 🙂

I’ll update once I figure out what I’m going to do in the next couple days.
