Random question: Has anyone had laser hair removal?
If so, was it a good experience for you? Was it worth the money?

1. A girl I work with did
She said it was worth every penny and then some. She did mention she itched a lot for a few days afterward but that may be due to the... er... area she had zapped.

3. Well... yes, okay.
But for a woman like me who aspires to have a pair of long, smooth legs, it's firmly in my mind. :hi:

I too would like to read some actual experiences.

Found a couple more good sites--Mayo is always reliable: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/laser-hair-removal/HQ0...

9. I would do it ina heartbeat but it looks like pale colored hair won't
be affected by laser removal techniques and that is what I am looking for. I am waiting for laser technology to get up to speed and help out us fairer folks with the soft, downy light hair!

8. It hurts a bit
The worst part was the goo they put all over the areas to be lasered.

Disgusting!

6. Contemplating it
There is this random patch of hair on my back behind my left shoulder and trap muscle. And a much smaller unsymmetrical patch on the other side. I wouldn't mind being uniformly hairy but having a random patch of hair on my back is a bit strange.
