If you look over to the right at my profile, you will see that I am a Pacific Islander, aka hairy ethinic beast. Just sayin. I can totally relate to those Kardashian chicks even though they are Armenian. Dark ethnic hair is dark ethnic despite its origin. (You "light hair" people don't know how good you really have it). Dark, thick hair is totally obnoxious, annoying, irritating (physically and mentally). One thing I have always wanted to try...well ever since it was created...is laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal is right up there for me in the unknown and scary category. I normally don't like to experiment too much with my body...with exception to my pierced belly button and my tattoo. Ok, so maybe I'm a little ok with "trying new things"...whatever. Anywho, LATELY and as I have matured, I've been a little freaked at the idea of permanently altering my body. But, the hair issue is just too much! Shaving and waxing is just not enough.
I joined the Groupon website a couple of months ago, and I absolutely love it. So far, I have purchased two great deals and have been really pleased with the process and the outcome of it.

A local day spa, Body Trends, had an AMAZING deal. They offered 6 treatments of laser hair removal that was worth $750 for only $99! I jumped at the opportunity. If I was ever going to give laser hair removal a try, this was the best opportunity that I had for it yet.
Last night was my first treatment. I won't lie. I was definitely
The laser hair removal technician, I want to call her expert, was so incredibly kind and professional. She definitely made me feel welcome and comfortable, but most importantly, she eased my anxiety without me having to ask her to do so. She explained the process to me before she started and she was really patient with my million questions and jibbery nervous talking. I will praise her a millions times for just dealing with my uber awkwardness so well.
After all the talky talk, the
After twenty minutes of holding my breath and going to my happy place, the
My next treatment is in about a months time, so I'm sure I will update you again after that treatment.
As of today, my underarms feel absolutely normal. We are good to go. No swelling, no soreness, no wierd growths...haha. But, seriously, everything so far is peachy.
I think laser hair removal is my new best friend.
Keep on Keepin on.
