My first experience with laser was in the UK in 2003. Once tried and never again, it was so painful that it made waxing seem like tickling. I do not recall the type of laser that was used back then, it was so long ago.
When I returned back to Australia late 2004 after living there for almost 4 years, I told many friends about my laser experience and none of them had ever heard about lasering your hair away!
Years had past and I continued to Veet my legs (waxing was way to painful for me) and wax my underarms (not so painful). In 2009 I decided to brave lasering again. I had heard and read a lot about the new technology of laser hair removal and there were lots of centres that had popped up everywhere including salons adding it to part of their service.
I tried out a local clinic and they burnt my underarm which scabbed up and was very painful. That was it for me, no more laser, just waxing from now on.
In 2010 a friend of mine told me about NAD's clinic and said that they were very professional and guarranteed their service. So I tried them. They were good. I had my top lip and underarms done. Since then I have only had to top up once above lip area.
In the new year I have decided to take it a step further and brave the laser and do my bikini area.
I will post my experience here once I get it done.
