What made you decide to start on a laser hair removal plan at Caci?
It actually came down to being busy and being frustrated. Shaving was just another thing on my 'to-do' list and I knew having it ticked off FOREVER would be amazing. My Mum has had laser hair removal treatments at Caci before and they come highly recommended so it was the next step to book myself in and get started!
What results have you noticed so far?
It's completely blown my mind - to a point that I don't even remember what it’s like to have underarm hair anymore. I used to get rashes and have sensitivity on my armpits due to razors irritating the skin every day, but my skin has been calm as ever. The hair is so thin and faint that when it's there you literally can't even see it and I'm only halfway through my treatments so I’m so keen to see the final results when it has been so drastic so far!
How do you find the treatment? What does it feel like?
I'm not going to lie, I was so terrified on my first appointment. But my therapist at Caci was so patient with me, she made everything as quick and easy as possible. It feels a bit hot and stingy, a bit like if someone slaps your sunburn - but the sensation is over in less than a second. I have a low pain tolerance, but it's all over so quickly so it's 100% doable. And anyway - the benefits are totally worth it!
What are you most looking forward to at the completion of your plan?
I'm looking forward to Summer! Camping, and relaxing, and not worrying about anything other than soaking in the sun and swimming. A summer 'hair free' sounds like such a dream. I think it's one of those things that you don't realize how much you think about "I haven't shaved my legs" or "I need to wax before I can wear that dress" until you don't need to anymore!
What do you like most about coming to Caci?
I love the therapists. They are all so knowledgeable, professional, understanding, and kind. Every one of them. One appointment I remember, I was simply having a bad day and just lost it and burst into tears while getting my hairs zapped away and my therapist, Teri stopped, grabbed the tissues and ended up making me laugh. I genuinely ENJOY going along to get my armpits lasered! That's how great the team at Caci are!
