Laser Hair Removal : another PCOS problem.

This was by far the best decision, I kick myself for not doing it sooner.  As you may or may not know a symptom of PCOS is:

condition produces excess hair growth
notably on the face, chest, abdomen, thumbs, or toes.

I'ts not pretty, and ever since I noticed these symptoms I have longed for colder weather!  I feel much more comfortable in winter clothes where I can cover.  Since I live in Chicago I have to be prepared for any type of weather at any time - which means my razor is getting a pretty good workout.  Anyways, one day I saw a special on Groupon for Laser Hair Removal (LHR) - on an impulse I bought it.  It's funny because even though I am embarrassed about the excess hair - it took me some time to build up the courage to call for an appointment.  I still feel a bit weird about it.  

Well, I now kick myself for not doing it sooner.  One of my trouble areas is my bikini line - and so far I have had 3 treatments (8weeks apart) and I wish I would have done it sooner.  I have 3 more to go and I am really looking forward to the final results.  Some may wonder, does it hurt?  I can only say that it doesn't feel great - but tolerable, and the pain goes away very quickly.  I also have lily white skin & dark brown hair - I hear that is the best combo the Laser will work on.  I don't use the numbing cream - although I think if it was a bigger area or more sensitive- I would defiantly consider asking for it.  

I may become a (LHR) junkie, it totally beats out shaving and it has really improved my self esteem!

  3. There are many people who are facing PCOS problem, just like you laser hair removal is the only solution which can be useful to resolve this issue, no matter how much you wax or shave the hair will always come back.

  4. It is perfect understandable to feel that way, especially if you're doing it for the first time. I have the same feeling and rather done DIY waxing because of the fear that other people will see my private spot. Not the best feeling in the world. But I pursue it when a friend told me that it will only take 6 to 8 session and it will be gone for long. Now I realize why it become so popular nowadays. → Gaye Cisneros ← @
