However, today I am going to share my testimonial - so to speak ;) For most of my adult life I have been waxing my arms. I hated every time I did this as I did not like the discomfort of waxing, the sticky feeling after but I did LOVE have smooth arms for a week or so! And that was it - 1 week to 2 at the most before I had regrowth coming through. Being that I had and have always had dry skin, my skin would become bumpy and rough and that I did not like!
So over the years I went to many salons and asked about having IPL or Laser on my arms. I received the same response each time 'your skin is too dark and your hair is too light - it won't work'. This bugged me to no end as I was desperate for a solution.
When seeking out the best machine to introduce into the salon I found my answer! The machine I purchased has a hand-piece to treat blond and red hair. It also has the setting to treat darker skin types!!! A WINNER!
So, 5 weeks ago I shaved my arms and Jess performed IPL on my arms. The treatment was completely painless - not even any discomfort at all, so this in itself was brilliant as waxing always hurt me. Over the next few days following my treatment I was waiting for the short spikes to start coming through as I had shaved my arms prior to the IPL Treatment. Nothing....waiting....nothing!
So in conclusion to this testimonial, I am about to have my 2nd Treatment today. Prior to shaving again I did have some regrowth which was soft but more importantly, you could barely see them. I estimate I lost at least 50% of my hair growth from the one treatment which for me was the best thing ever!!!! I had to start my treatments as soon as the summer (short sleeve and singlet wearing) season had finished so that I would not be exposing my arms to the sun. Therefore by next summer coming, I will have completed my treatments and be HAIR FREE! I am also treating my legs, bikini & underarms and all with the same brilliant results! I just had to share my arm story as this has been an incredible result for me after wanting this for so long!
Below is a pic of a male client that is very dark skinned that I treated and the results after 1 treatment, 8 weeks later!
