Hair Free Diary: Leg Hair Laser Removal, Session 3

Every 6 weeks or so, I have an appointment with Alma at Wink. Alma is not my laser therapist, Alma is the Alma Soprano Accord, the hair removing laser machine that zaps my hair follicles to kingdom come, with close to minimal pain - more of just discomfort from the heat and slight stings.

And now, the highlights and observations after two sessions of laser hair removal:

Finer & Slower Hair Growth. As you can see here, after my second session, I was pretty good at not shaving off the hair that had grown, so it grew out finer than it did before. Then again, my hair was growing at a much much slower pace, so there was really no need to shave.

Hair growth was so fine that I could still wear shorts or dresses. People would have to go super close to my legs for them to see leg hair.

This was pretty liberating. Unlike pre-laser where I had to hide my legs and wear pants when I haven't had the time to shave. Even post-laser session 1, where I still had to shave around 3 times before the second session to get rid of leg hair.

Hair would fall off at the slightest tug. After about three weeks after the second session, I did have a satisfying time helping ease out hair with dead follicles by picking at it with my bare nails. OMG. It was so fun pulling them out because there was no struggle at all. I did of course keep the ones that were still rooted.

Wider area of bald spots. It's definitely a visible improvement from the first session, where teeny tiny dark stubbles of hair were still sprouting, as you can see below.

For my third session, my therapist had to increase the heat setting as it was getting harder to target leg hairs since growth had been finer and harder to spot. The good news was that it was still bearable. It also helps that I have seen results and I am more willing to suffer the discomfort knowing that I am closer to saying bye bye to unsightly leg hair. 

It has been what, 4 weeks since I had my third session, and there is hardly any growth anymore. Will update you on developments as I get into my fourth session. All I know for now is that I am so relieved that I no longer have to dress based on my leg hair situation, haha.
