FACIAL LASER HAIR REMOVAL – SESSION 6
SINCE THE LAST SESSION
ONE WEEK OF GROWTH
Not sure if it’s linked, or if it’s to do with my hormone levels, but it seems I’ve had a bit more facial hair than normal this past week. I haven’t shaved for seven days, the longest period since the last session, and there seems to be a few more black hairs, especially on my upper lip and just below my lower lip. I’ll speak to Debbie, my consultant about that, see what she says. This is the first time since I started, that progress appears to have visually not progressed.
Sniff Sniff, can you smell burning?
The last session was pretty painless, I had fears this one was going to hurt due to the increase in black hairs, but it wasn’t too bad. It was about a 7/10 mostly. The top lip hurt, as it always does, however, the jawline and other areas were uncomfortable, but bearable. I actually arrived to the session really early, so spent fifteen minutes meditating in the waiting room. As I said, I was slightly nervous about the pain today, but while meditating I had this idea of saying thank you. Every time it hurts, say thank you. So that’s what I did. It actually stopped it hurting. In fact, it made me want it to be a bit painful, just so I could say thank you lol Honestly, you should try this, it works.
So as she was zapping my top lip … ARRGGHHHH, thank you lol OWWWWW…thank you :) Mad! Oh, and she started counting again, 1, 2, 3 … BAM with the laser. I said last session I didn’t like this, but was too shy to ask her to stop. Well, when she started counting this time, I said, “No, please don’t.” I have a soft voice, so she didn’t quite know what I meant, but soon realised and never did it again :) I can be self assertive!
THANK YOU :)
MINUTES AFTER THE LASER
This photo was taken a few minutes after the session, as you can see, lots of redness and swelling again. Looks bloody horrible lol
THE DAY AFTER
The swelling was still there a few hours later, but all the redness and spots had gone.
The highlight of the session was definitely proving I can be self assertive. It doesn’t come naturally, so whenever I can manage it, I feel very proud. The saying Thank You, every time it hurt, is also going to be a good tactic moving forward. I imagine it will be very handy when I start removing my grey facial hairs via electrolysis; apparently that hurts more than laser. Thank You lol
The next session, number seven, will take place on the 27th June, 2017. Thank You :)
