Here we have a picture of my chest. This photo was taken at two weeks after shaving. Does it look hairy to you? Yeah, it looks pretty hair free to me as well. If you zoom in on it a bit you might be able to spot the hairs that still remain. But hey, that is pretty darn near hair free huh?
On this photo you can more easily see the remaining hairs in my armpit. Again this photo was taken two weeks after the last time that I shaved.
Overall I am very impressed with the results of my IPL experiment. In total I have zapped myself about 4 or 5 times. The directions are that you are supposed to wait 2 weeks between zaps. I have followed those directions for the most part. From the start til now I could probably have zapped it a few more times, but I have been lazy!
I don't know if you can tell from my photos, but I have multicolored body hair and that is a problem for IPL hair removal. The darker hairs have been pretty much entirely removed, but the lighter colored hairs are still there. But I don't mind the lighter colored hairs so much. It really is the darker ones that really bug me.
I have been using the LumaRX IPL Hair removal system as an experiment, trying to decide if the 4-5 hundred dollar investment is really worth it. And my overall opinion??????? YES, it is SO worth it. I will then obviously keep this unit and I will continue to zap away at some of the more difficult stragglers. I will keep you updated!!
Oh...... I did want to say, that overall my goal is a total hair free body, and that is not what I have achieved so far, nor do I think that I will ever actually achieve that state. With all of the light colored hairs it may very well prove an impossibility. But, the hair loss I have achieved is very much worth the cost. As well, if you are considering going to a professional, and your skin and hair is the right type, this is well worth the investment. If you buy this and use it first, before going to professional route, there will be far fewer hairs for the professional to attack. So.... to me.... it is totally worth it.
Well unless you love hair, then Love hair!
But for me, hate hair!
Well...... hate body hair...... I would LOVE my natural head hair back again...... oh so sad it had to depart from my life...... booooo-hooooo-hooooo!!!
