Last Monday, I got to experience my first laser hair removal treatment, courtesy of Red & White SPA.
I’ve wanted to get laser for my armpits ever since I started shaving…aka FOR A LONG TIME. As someone with dark features, the hair that grows is equally as dark & can be noticed from a mile away if I forget to ladyscape. I also don’t know if my under arm hair naturally grows like a weed, but I found myself having to shave practically every day.
All the more reason that I really wanted to try laser to eliminate the need to carry a razor in my bag, just in case I’m caught in a sleeveless top & forgot to trim (yes, I’ve learned to always be prepared…)
Making the decision to try laser hair removal can be a daunting experience for a couple reasons: 1) It’s generally not cheap, 2) You have to be choosy about when you get it done, and 3) You equally should be choosy about where you get it done.
All these things kept me from getting it done earlier than now. I didn’t want to pay a crazy amount for it, knowing several treatment sessions generally have to be scheduled for complete hair removal. I also didn’t know how well I’d be able to stay out of the sun during the summer, as you can’t expose the lasered area to any UV light for a while. And after hearing the stigma that it’s painful and picking the right laser technician is crucial for great results, I practically talked myself out of going forward with it…
After my experience at Red & White SPA, all my apprehensions about laser were completely squashed!
I’m so happy I decided to go forward with it, especially because it’s been over a week and I’ve only shaved ONCE!
Besides seeing results already, after only one treatment mind you, there are a couple reasons why I suggest booking your future laser appointment at Red & White SPA:
1) THE WHOLE TREATMENT TOOK 10 MINUTES!
From the moment I walked into the spa to when I walked out the door to leave, I was on my way home within 10 minutes – such a perk for someone like me who’s on-the-run 24/7. You could easily book an appointment during your lunch break and be back in time, that’s how quick they are here.
2) SMALL AREA LASER (underarms, bikini line, etc.) IS ONLY $125!
I’ve never seen a laser treatment priced lower than $200, so this is such a steal for the quality of treatment I received!
3) IT DIDN’T HURT MUCH AT ALL!
If anything it feels like a quick bee sting, 7-8x per pit. The only thing that was uncomfortable was smelling my hair burning off, which is expected and only lasts in the moment the treatment is being done.
4) YOU DON’T NEED TO COMMIT TO MONTHLY TREATMENT
I was always under the impression that laser hair removal MUST be consistent, in terms of sticking to a treatment plan, in order to see results. That’s not the case. Even if I weren’t to return for my second treatment for a couple months, the treatment is still going to be effective. The hair growth is permanently stunted, and with each treatment it will only get closer to stop growing all together!
5) MENTION MY NAME WHEN BOOKING YOUR FUTURE APPOINTMENT & GET 50% OFF!
That means your first small area laser treatment will only cost $63! HOLY MOLY!
Keep in mind you can mention my name (Tilden) when booking ANY KIND OF TREATMENT, not just laser hair removal. Red & White SPA has an assortment of services offered such as eyebrow tinting, lash extensions, facials, massages, lip threading and waxing.
**ONLY VALID AT THE MIDTOWN LOCATION**
So if you’re wondering if I’ll be returning for the next 4-5 rounds of underarm laser treatment (as suggested by my technician), the answer is YES YES YES!
Because I started treatment in Spring, I’ll have to be careful when sitting out in the sun this Summer. Thankfully my underarms rarely see the sun, given I don’t tan with my arms stretched up over my head lol. So I don’t think I’ll have a problem shielding them from the UV rays as long as I’m careful & use a generous amount of sunscreen.
However, I suggest you hold off on getting laser to your bikini line until Fall…that’s the next area on my list after I’m done with my underarms!
I’m so thrilled to have found a great spa offering an even greater price to get this done, which will make achieving hairless pits an even more real opportunity for me to have at this point of my life!
