I have been dying to share this experience with you from past few days. Guess now is the right time. :))
Last month Kaya asked me if I’d like to try one of their Laser Hair Reduction routines. I was very unsure about the laser but I got brave and said yes. 😛 I decided to go for 4-6 sessions of underarm hair removal. I have done only one yet. There is one session every month so I still have a few months to go thorough the complete process.
I was asked not to shave or wax atleast 3-4 days before the laser treatment. Very difficult. But I did it. 😛
On the day of the session:
I met Dr Rohini and actually loaded her with a lot of questions. Some were my personal queries and some questions were general. Following are the questions I asked before my session started. If you have any queries related to laser hair reduction, you may post them the in the comments below. A Kaya team member would answer them. 🙂
- Is laser safe? Does it have any side effects?
Dr Rohini: It is 100% safe. There are no side effects. The laser beam goes only till the level of the hair roots, which is very superficial.
- Can anybody get laser hair reduction done?
Dr R : Yes anyone except people who have pacemakers.
- Can pregnant women get laser done?
Dr R : It is not recommended for pregnant women to get laser done during their pregnancy and 6 months prior pregnancy during lactation time.
- Is laser hair reduction painful?
Dr R : At Kaya SKin CLinic we have two kind of laser machines. Diode : It only gives a warm sensation to the skin. it is very effective on those who have soft hair. It also works well for facial hair. Nd Yag : This one can be painful. This works great on coarse hair. ( I got this one done)
- What should one expect after a laser hair reduction?
Dr R : A lot of people come with unrealistic goals such as the hair would not grow back or the hair would be removed completely. It depends from person to person. Hair growth is a natural process but with laser hair reduction your hair growth would reduce by 70-90% in 4-6 sessions. After 6 months you would also have to have maintenance sessions. Laser hair reduction would not only take care of your in growth hair but would also save you from the hassle of waxing or shaving.
My Experience :
After being completely satisfied with my queries, I was taken to the treatment room. This is the laser machine.
Since I was going for a painful laser treatment, I was asked to inform Deepika (the girl who did my treatment) about any discomforts I may feel during the session. Laser is done in a cold environment so as to prevent any sweating during the treatment. I changed, wore laser protective glasses and lied down for the session to start. Phew!
During the session :
Deepika first shaved off any unwanted hair on my underarm, applied cold numbing gel and started treatment. What laser does is basically burn the roots of the hair. At some places it got really painful and I took my few seconds breaks during the session. The session got over within 30 minutes for one arm. And the second arm just flew by within 20 minutes of so. 😉
The pain was all worth it. I suddenly felt free and light and happy. I mean no waxing nothing. You know when Anuska Sharma says ‘ go sleeveless on him’, that’s how I felt. 😀 No deodorant can give you that freedom, it’s only laser that gives you that amazing sense of freeness. I had to follow up the treatment with the post laser cream for 5 days. I was also told that I would see some tiny hair coming back after 2 days but in my case, they din’t . 😛 It’s been almost a month and I have to go for my next session soon. I have literally won sleeveless almost every other day since I have got this done. It’s been almost 18-19 days since my treatment and I barely have 5-7 tiny hair , which have grown back. You can’t even see them from from distance. My skin is baby soft. Laser is almost like life changing experience for me. I am sooo glad I got a chance to try it out. All actresses get laser done. *secret*
I am so kicked about getting my arms and legs also done. It’s just UHMAZINGGGG!!!
