SK:N Laser Hair Removal – 2/6 update!

A quick SK:N laser hair removal update… check out my swollen top lip!  I’m impressed… that thing could take over a small country, it’s like the Goodyear blimp!

I don’t generally have much of a top lip as you can see in my FOTDs, so it’s only when you realise this that you can appreciate just how hugely puffed up that top lip is!

Anyway, I had my 2nd facial hair removal session at my local SK:N clinic on Wednesday and I was looking forward to it and dreading it in equal measure.  I’ve already said that I found my first session quite painful but I was hopeful that with a lot of the hair already destroyed, this 2nd session would be easier to bare.  And it was!

It was about 1/4 as painful as the first.  The only bit that had my eyes watering was the upper lip which they thankfully left till last.  The rest?  Completely fine…. just light pinging sensations against the skin.  Nothing to worry about at all!  Relief!

Compared to last time’s post-treatment soreness…. I have nothing.  Literally nothing.  After about 12 hours, the redness had completely faded… all that is left are a couple of whiteheads on my upper lip which probably have more to do with slathering on copious amounts of Aloe Vera gel than anything else.  A true 90% improvement in irritation and discomfort over my first session.

Except for the swelling.

The whole lower half of my face has doubled in size again, perhaps even more so than last time.  I look like a Spitting Image character.  I’m assuming this is just the fluid rushing to protect and heal the areas that it feels are under attack… but still, not attractive!

Here’s a post-treatment video just like after the first session, apart from noticing how horrible my bottom teeth are… try to concentrate more on how much less skin irritation I have compared to the previous video.  If it keeps progressing like this, it’s gonna be a doddle!

    Thank you for the postings describing your laser hair removal. Although this is not a problem that I have, you undoubtedly are providing a service to others who have excess facial hair and may not have felt comfortable discussing it and/or understood this removal option. You have chosen to use this medium to offer information, assistance, and support and, thus, providing a great service.

    Additionally, I love your product reviews!

    A fan,
    Kathleen

    omg *cries*, literally cries.
    twice a day to once a week: this is liberation.
    this must feel like heaven.
    I hate to say this but you’re going to have to find something else special about you, cos this hair thing going on, is steadily going away.
    yay fucking yay 🙂

    lots and lots and lots of love.
    xx
