When it comes to beauty, the one thing that I absolutely hate to do is shave. Like, to the point that I’ll grab a pair of pants instead of shorts to wear if it means I can skip the razor (sorry, not sorry!). Aside from the obvious time-suck that comes with traditional shaving, I have super sensitive skin that leads to a myriad of skin care issues: razor burn, ingrown hairs, and the smoothness only lasts for a day or two before I’m stubbly again. Overall, it’s a major pain.
When Milan Laser Hair Removal reached out to have me experience their laser hair removal services, I couldn’t wait to learn more! I learned that laser hair removal is the sole focus at Milan Laser. And, they have an amazing unlimited package to give you long-lasting results.
With summertime on the horizon, I wanted to get started right away so I could get a jump start on the no-shave/hair-free lifestyle. I quickly set up my consultation to learn more. Just the thought of having the freedom of throwing on a swimsuit without having the worries of prickly legs or peekaboo bikini line issues had me excited to find out more.
I’m sharing all about my experience below, including all the important FAQ’s when it comes to laser hair removal at Milan Laser!
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work (and Does It Hurt)?
Before you can begin treatment, you start with a free consultation. At your consultation, Milan staff chat with you one-on-one about your laser hair removal needs. They have a great video to help understand how laser hair removal works and will answer any and all questions that you may have. They made me feel so comfortable about the procedure and no question was off limits! I had a lot of questions about if the laser was painful, how to prepare for my session and if there was going to be any side effects or downtime. They took the time to reassure and address all of my concerns which made me feel so much more comfortable!
Laser hair removal treatments at Milan are safe and performed by trained medical professionals. They use FDA-cleared lasers that are adjusted for skin type (even the darkest of skin tones) and hair color. The laser targets the hair follicle to stop it from ever growing hair again. The laser is placed on the skin and a pulse is given which damages the root of the hair so it can never grow back again. The average person will have smooth, stubble-free success in 7 to 10 treatments (treatments usually occur every 5 weeks).
When I went for my first treatment, I had lots of nervous anticipation! Per the recommendation of the provider, I shaved prior to coming in and made sure to avoid applying lotions in the area that I would be having treated for the best results. When I arrived, I slipped into a robe and put on some snazzy eyeglasses (to protect my eyes from the light) so that they could do my treatment.
I chose to have my bikini area treated since shaving that area is the worst and has always led to bothersome and uncomfortable razor bumps and irritation. The provider placed the laser and gave me the first pulse. The pulses feel similar to a small rubber band being snapped on your skin, but the laser equipment has an awesome cooling spray that is super helpful in making it more uncomfortable (and it’s so much less painful than waxing!).
In 10 minutes, my treatment was done and I was walking out the door! It’s simple, easy and SO quick! There’s literally no down time so it’s great for squeezing into your schedule (plus, it will save me so much time when I won’t have to shave anymore). I had a little redness that faded away within an hour and absolutely no pain.
I started seeing hair falling out within a week or so. It was so odd because you could see the hair and then it would just fall out naturally (gentle exfoliation helps too). In my first treatment, I already felt that I had so much less hair that grew back (~50% less)!
Where Can You Have Hair Removed?
Laser hair removal is a great permanent solution to hair removal for all different areas of the body. While most think of the traditional body areas in which we remove hair, laser hair removal can be used on so many different areas of the body! Just a few of the areas include:
- Bikini or Brazilian
- Lip and/or chin
- Back Hair
- And more (set up consult to discuss your problem areas)
How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Take?
Sessions can be done as fast at 10 minutes! It all depends on what area you are having treated. For most patients, you’ll likely have about 95% of your unwanted hair removed within 7 to 10 treatments! I’ve only have 2 treatments and already feel like I have had over 50% of my unwanted hair removed! I was shocked to see how quickly it began working for me!
One of the things that really sold me on Milan is that each hair removal package is unlimited! The unlimited packages allow you to have as many treatments as you need in order to remove all of your unwanted hair… for a lifetime! You’ll never have to pay extra down the road for touch-ups or have to worry about changes that can stimulate hair growth (such as hormone imbalances related to PMS, pregnancy, menopause). It’s a huge comfort to know that once you pay the initial cost, you’re all set for hair-free treatments and touchups for life…no surprises!
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
The price of hair removal can vary depending on the area you are treating. Milan’s prices are super competitive and reasonable – plus, you cannot beat the lifetime guarantee! The Milan website has all of the information that you need to start your fact-finding on pricing and the process.
Why Choose Milan Laser Hair Removal?
One of my main reasons for choosing Milan Laser Hair Removal is that they are the pros when it comes to laser hair removal! Laser hair removal is all that they do and they’ve perfected the process for amazing results, a great experience and a lifetime of smooth, lifelong results.
I’m so excited to see more awesome results as my treatments continue! I’ve had two so far and the amount of hair that’s been removed this far is absolutely amazing. Throwing on a suit this summer will be worry-free when it comes to prickly hair. Stay tuned as I’ll be sure to update more as my treatments finish!
