"I have tan skin with medium-coarse hair all over my body. I'd never gotten laser hair removal before, and my roommate — who also had undergone laser removal on her Brazilian area — did everything she could to prepare me. 'It feels like a rubber band snapping against your skin — quickly,' she said, and as someone who has gotten a fair share of piercings, I imagined it wouldn't be so painful."
"Maybe it was me being overconfident about my pain threshold, or maybe it was because my roommate was being gentle when describing the experience to me, but the first few zaps were a shock. It was more intense than a rubber band snapping (It felt more like if you set the rubber band on fire). "
"As the treatment progressed and I began to get used to the feeling. I became less tense, and my wonderful technician, who talked me through the entire procedure from start to end — finished the session in 10 minutes."
"My first session was quick and pleasant to the extent that lasers being shot in that area of your body could be. My hair hasn't grown back, and the area doesn't seem to have any more pigmentation than it did before." — Jesa Marie Calaor, assistant editor, Beauty
