Today I had my first laser treatment!

6 posts in this topic

So my lovely esthetician gave me first laser treatment today!!!

It hurt so much, I thought I was going to die. The great thing is, the pain didn't last a second longer than the procedure! My face was a little bit red for about fifteen minutes, but no blistering or anything!

Did it hurt? Yes. Was it worth the pain? Absolutely. Would I do it again? I've already scheduled my next appointment.

Goodbye, beard!

I LOVE to hear these kinda things, I really do!


Cuz I'm about ready to start looking for a laser place to get mine zapped soon, too.

It would have to hurt a terribly horrid amount to discourage me from getting rid of the nasty stuff, lol..

Thanks for the info, please let us know how well it worked..

Thanks! Svenna

Good to hear. You will love it when you can say the beard shadow is gone! :)

About pain control. Tylenol extra strength and Emla cream.

My tech gives me an ice pack to put on my face after my treatment. I usually go through two of them before she gives me the okay. Then I put aloe on the treated areas. Aloe that's been in the fridge over night feels especially nice.

Great news, Nova! I'm happy for you, well, for the progress, not necessarily the pain.

I can tell you that the increased self confidence it gave me to get rid of my beard shadow made a world of difference. You're going to love having a smooth face. :D

The ice packs work well, and my center put a lotion on my face right after that cooled and moisterized it. I got a jar to take home, too, and put on 2-3 times a day. Expensive stuff, but worth it. One thing to look out for, especially at the beginning, is foliculitis. It's nasty and embarassing. The lotion helped with that.

I can't wait to remove my facial hair. Unfortunately I'm years away from that due to location and finances even though I go full time next month. :(
