  • I haven’t had any permanent hair removal treatments and find that I have less and less hair to worry about as I’m getting older.

  • I know family members who.made a sugar syrup stick ball/paste that used to pull the hairs off arms and worked well but this takes time does that help

  • I have. I had my bikini line done years ago. I found it at the time to be expensive but worth it. It was painful but not unbearable. I think from memory I had about 10 treatments.
    However, following the birth of my children and change in hormones, I now have hair growing back.
    Also, you are meant to continue to go back and get maintenance done to laser any new hair growth and I haven’t done that. Just couldn’t justify the expense when we are on 1 wage.

  • I bought an IPL machine to use at home. I bought it online, but I have seen them for sale in stores now. It has done an excellent job of permanent hair reduction and ended up much cheaper than getting it done at a business.

  • I have had it on my underarms my friend was starting her own business and i was her guinea pig, so i’m not really sure of the pricing but i have heard it is quite expensive. it didn’t work very well on me, i have very blond hair and apparently the lighter your hair is the less likely it is to work.

  • I haven’t had it but would consider it when the time is right.

  • I have not had it – but interested to know about laser hair removal and everything that is associated with this procedure.

  • Never had it. Always thought it was expensive so I never bothered. It’s meant to be permanent hair removal tho
