Ok, you all are probably wondering what this has to do with hair removal. Earlier last week I was browsing local and national websites regarding hair removal. Well one of them had a contest where you could win 3k dollars in sessions, so I signed up. They just called and told me I won a $300 certificate and in order to get it I need to come into their office. So I have an appointment for 9am tomorrow.

Congratulations, Honey!

To obad you didn't get the big prize, but you got SOMETHING!

Well, go and see what they say...can't hurt...but, don't sign up for anything while you are there...

See how they want to offer you the prize...cash or hair removal!

I'm in electrolysis and I'll tell you that $300 don't go very far!

Check it out, though...

Way to go!

The important part is don't sign up for anything - there should not be any additional sessions attached to the use of a prise - but read all of the fine print (take your microscope)

$300 won't go very far and they should just be counting on getting you started and then coming back when you have to pay for them yourself.

Congratulations on winning!

Love ya,

Thankyou for the suggestions Donna and Sally they are most appreciated. I half way thought it was some trick to get me in there, but I figured what the heck might as well go check it out.

Ok, I just got back from the consultation. I have to say everyone in there was exceptionaly nice to me and told me not to worry since about 45% of their clientelle is male wishing to do what I want or their back, chest and other body hair. I was pleased with their professionalism, friendlieness and the over all condition of the facility. Since the appoinment was scheduled for when they opened I did not see too many of their clients, but the few who came in were greeted on a first name basis. The company is a nationwide company, American Laser Centers, and they said their office here has been in business for over 11 years.

For 6 treatments of laser removal over a 6 month time frame and a 2 year satisfaction guaranteed program they want a total of $3300.00. However for the month of June all of their services and programs are 35% off and I need to use the $300.00 by then end of the week or it is gone. I was quoted $1950.00 for the program which includes my winnings and I am able to make $200 down payment with $292 due at each 6 of the appointments.

In my research, I have heard the average price for a session is between 300 to 400 or more. I am leaning towards going with them, partialy because it seems like a good deal, partialy because of they way they treat their customers, partly for the proffessionalism I saw and partly because I am extremely impulsive (my last ex hated the mall and Fredericks and Victoria Secrets, my two favorite stores...lol)

That works out to $325 a session and that is within your pricing information - you liked the place, they will let you make payments and you have the discount so it seems OK.

Love ya,

So this morning was the 1st of 6 treatments, they called me last night and asked if I could come in 15 minutes early for some paper work. I arrived promptly at 945 and barely sat down when they called my name, taking me to a nice little room in the back with a bed that was WAAAYYY too short, lol (I love being tall). She asked me a few more questions which were duplicates of ones in the medical questionare, like i am going to change my answers or something and proceeded to test a little area on my neck. Does this hurt? Can you feel this? All the way up to the highest setting where it was a bit of discomfort. Then she went to town, that is until I had her lower the setting when she got to my chin because it felt like I was nicking myself with a razor over and over :lol:

All in all I was in and out in less then 45 minutes and I was sooo happy when I left. The worse parts for me were my chin and upper lip. My next appointment is july 10th and I cant wait :P

Just a FYI from my laser girl..

Apparently top lip etc hurts where there is metal in your teeth behind. I can confirm this as I can taste my fillings afterwards.. especially my pair of large gold crowns.

It does get better.. it seems that a large amount of the pain is related to how many hair roots there are. Obviously I guess because those are the bits which get hot.

Face is one thing.. like a mix of an electric shock plus some heat like sunburn.. the surgical areas are fun.. wait and see ;)

What kind of laser are they using?

According to my paper work, they use their own Amerilight system which uses pulsed, high-intensity light combined with RF energy.

I do not have any metal in my front teeth, but there is some towards the rear. So far my face is feeling fine, but my eyes feel a bit like I got flashed when welding. She did say the lip and chin would hurt the most because that is where most of the hair roots are.

      My endocrinologist refuses to give me progesterone. I'm considering going outside for it.

      There are health risks though. They can be mitigated, but let me share the best piece of advice I got from a doctor during my transition: "Be in the best shape of your life."   Best of luck and big hugs!

      The only way to get my head speeding around like crazy is with Benzodiazepines. Where I live it is easy to get, but I don't want it.   But my dysphoria only goes away with benzo's.     Help....???

      Umm bread is just how I like it. Brown thick crunchy crust.   hurricane has now made landfall the eye was about 25 miles south of us.  We have been in a period of light wind but that will pick up again as it gets further inland.  Tornado watches until late tonight.

      it's always good to see support for trans-students, by their peers. The part of this policy forcing outing students worries me.

      I'm helping my husband this week.  We're hauling electrical supplies and equipment to Florida to help communities get their infrastructure rebuilt.  Cities and electric companies typically have some spare things on hand, but little way to prepare for an epic disaster like this. My husband's company (and likely every other in the field) are going to be filling orders like crazy for a while.   We made our first delivery just after Ian went through.  I've never seen such a mess, even after a tornado.  No cell service and no fuel. Our convoy brought a service truck with tires and fuel along, and we needed every bit of it.  So much debris in the road.  I thought my husband was excessive having a snow plow mounted on the service truck but we wouldn't have gotten in without it.   And water.  Oh my.  As we got close we drove through water that was almost up to the doors of our trucks.     We've got our second load and we're preparing to head back.  Fort Myers this time.  I've heard that's the worst spot...

      Good afternoon    I have a loaf of rustic bread rising.  It will be ready to bake about mid afternoon.  We have plenty of eggs, TP, bread in the form of yeast and bread flour, a cake mix, brownie mix, cookies and the most important CHOCOLATE!  It’s getting closer but it’s not expected to be here for two more hours.  We’ve had some significant wind gusts but no damage.  I’m actually sitting on my porch.  I m protected by the building on all but one side.   I’ll let you know how my bread turns out.   Willow
