Review After Laser Hair Removal For Underarms

After years of suffering from ingrown hair and irritation, I've finally decided to try out laser hair removal. So basically laser hair removal do not permanently remove your hair it just destroys and weakens your hair follicle so that your hair would grow slower, lighter, and sparser. You guys should really do research on the clinic and procedure before your decide to do a laser treatment because if it's not done right then it can cause scaring or discoloration! Anyways, for me each underarm laser session time took around 40 seconds to one minute so is rather quick and the pain is quite bearable.
This is the Fotona Laser machine the clinic used on me for hair removal. This laser is less skin damaging the light based lasers and offers safe, quick, and effective hair reduction, provide cold air cooling to increase patient comfort levels, and support painless treatment for larger areas.


Experience: underarm laser hair removal laser #1 (11/02/2012)
This is actually the first time I'm doing a laser treatment and I really didn't know how it would feel or if there's any side effect. I thought that I had to grow out my underarm hair so that it would be more accurate and easier for the laser to sense my hair  and plus I thought it would be so cool to see strands of hair being shot off by the beams of the laser. Therefore, I bravely walked into the clinic with a very bushy underarm by not shaving for like 2-3 weeks so that I can see the instant effect of the hair removal. After a quick chat with the aesthetician, our session had to start and I was so so embarrassed to lift up my arms so she could apply aloe gel before performing the procedure on me. The moment I lifted up my arms she saw my jungle and quickly turned around and pulled out a disposable shaver and said to me that I needed to shave. At that very moment I was super embarrassed as I really didn't know why I needed to shave and that it took me so long to grow out my hair. She then explained to me that the strands of hair would confuse the laser censor so I had to shave myself clean. Afterwards, I had to sit up straight and lift up my arms so that she can scan my underarm with her laser's beam. During the first 10 seconds of the session I felt a little pain almost like someone using 10 tweezers to puck your hair out at the same time. After the first 10 seconds, the nightmare began as it started to hurt a lot like someone using a match to burn your skin and while I was trying to bear the pain I could smell something like fried pork rind when its actually your skin burning. Thank god each arm's session only lasted for under a minute or so or else I would have just dashed out the door. Now moving forward, after the session only a slight tingling pain will remain and last for about 30 minutes. For the next few days I had to apply aloe gel for 2-3 times each day and refrain myself from shaving, plucking, or waxing. After a week or so I could see about 80% of the tiny strands of hair falling out when I scrub my underarm. I have to tell you that it was super cool seeing the stands of hair falling off with a just light touch.

Experience: underarm laser hair removal #2 (12/31/2012)
After the first hair removal session, I felt that my underarm hair did grow a lot slower but I really didn't see any difference myself grow less underarm hair. The second session's procedures were exactly the same as the first time except this time I had shave before I visited the clinic. This time around, the hair removal process was less painful and rather quick. (oh no! my skin was so fried up that it had no more feeling!) Well, it was good that I didn't feel much pain but I think my session was shorter then the first so maybe that's the reason to the decrease of pain level. Again I had to moisturize and leave my underarm alone for another week. Then after a week my hair starts falling out again but this time only 70% had fallen off. I do notice that after the second session the amount of hair growth was reduced and that it takes around 2 weeks for a replacement hair to grow out. My next session is in 7 weeks so hopefully I would see better results after each session.

Experience: underarm laser hair removal #3 (02/08/2012)
The long process of waiting 7 weeks between each session is really making me feel very anxious because I want immediate results! I want hair to grow as slow as 1 mm per 3 months and that would be ideal. I guess I just have to spend more time and money to have that kind of desired results. Anyways, I didn't shave today before I went in because the remaining underarm hair was super thin and short so I felt there wasn't a need. Today's session was rather painful because I could feel the strong light burning my skin. This feeling of this pain is kind of like a lot of needles poking my underarm but with no blood. I think this session felt more pain than the second session because the nurse held the laser pointed closer or possibly because I didn't shave and the laser head couldn't sense my hair very well. After the session, my pits felt tingling for around 20 minutes and then back to normal.

I noticed my armpit hair starts falling out after 6 days of the laser session which is 1 day less then my first and second hair removal. After the fallout my underarm hair regrows very slow almost like 1/2 inch per month. The hair that regrows are also very thin and fine which makes it less obvious if I didn't shave. Overall, I'm very satisfied with the results and I can't wait for my next session!

    1. Thanks for reading my blog! So far I've completed 6 sessions of the laser treatment and to tell you honestly its definitely worth the time, pain and money as the results are better than what I had imagined. After six treatments my hair grows very slow and much thinner and shorter. In the past I've always had problems with in grown hair but after the treatments I don't have this problem anymore and I only have to shave like once a month so it saved a lot of my time. If you would like to know more about it you can always message me!

    1. Yes I would totally recommend laser hair removal. The high price of laser hair removal has dropped quite a lot over the last few years making it very affordable. I finished a total of 6 session and I do see a drastic difference in terms of the growth rate of the hair and also the thickness. I just wanted to let you know that this is NOT a permanent solution as hair will still grow but just slower and thinner. I have always had problem with ingrown hair and skin irritation every time I shave or wax so this had help me out so so much as I don't really experience these problems quite often anymore. I do plan to complete a few more sessions for my underarm as I'm still not 100% satisfied with the thickness of the hair now so if I run across another laser hair removal deal I'll definitely purchase it! Let me know if you have any questions.

  6. Over the past 20 years, I have tried various hair removal options like creams, waxing, tweezers and electrolysis to get rid of the excess hair problem due to a medical condition. To be honest, none of these options worked well for me and only provided temporary results. When I heard of laser hair removal, I did not hesitate to try it because it is said to provide permanent results. The treatment proved to be the least painful and most effective all the other methods I tried over the years. Although slightly uncomfortable, it is certainly not painful. The treatment has provided me with noticeable results in a short space of time and I am truly happy with the results.

  8. Nice to meet you Mohamed! I actually like this device quite a lot as I didn't get any scarring or discoloration from it and the laser process was quick. The process with quite painless too as the machine blew out a lot of cold air during the process so it distracted my attention. Overall I think it worked great and the results were obvious! I have not tried out another laser machine so cannot tell you the difference but I am planning to buy a few more sessions at another laser hair removal location so I'll write another update then! Let me know if you have any questions.
