This may be a topic some people are embarrassed about, but I am not, being Portuguese will help my case. Now you know Mediterranean men are hairy, well so are the women. It”s really not fun when you go on holiday and need to slip into a bathing suit or if you have the urge to wear a summer dress or denim skirt in the spur of the moment.
I have always thought of laser as an option but people have scared me and told me how painful it is. Not to mention it is expensive. Jokes aside, I cannot handle waxing, the pain and having someone stare and wax my girl just does not make me happy.
I happened to be in the Parkview Mall in Pretoria last year when I noticed an advert on the boom entrance about a “Christmas in July”sale. I decided to enquire with Glo Laser and Beauty immediately – it was now or never! Needless to say, I booked a lip and chin laser session immediately.
The store is very simple in design but gives you a sense of calmness the minute you walk in, the staff are always friendly and super chatty! By the way, if you are JHB based there is a store in Dainfern. On my first appointment we assessed my skin type. If you have dark hair the better this treatment will work on you. I was also reassured that the treatment was virtually painless depending on my pain threshold, Now if you watch my video below you will see me laughing and chatting away. If I look nervous it was because of the filming and I should have removed my bra!
If you don’t know what laser is, here is a brief summary:
Laser hair removal treatments reduce unwanted hair from anywhere on your face or body. Laser hair removal works by passing light through the skin into the hair follicle, destroying the cells so that they’re no longer able to produce hair. After each treatment, you’ll notice a reduction in the amount of hair growing back, until hair regrowth ceases altogether. For more details, FAQs and pricing visit their website. Also this system is called the Soprano laser hair removal system and it does not cause damage to your skin.
The treatment is quick and simple. The feeling is hard to explain, it feels like someone is holding a piece of ice against your skin and does not hurt as the staff are always making sure you are comfortable. I would definitely recommend this treatment if you find waxing/shaving a mission.
