Are you considering getting laser hair removal? Laser hair removal is something that I have thought about getting done for some time now. So when Havana Skin Clinic IFSC got in touch to see if I would be interested in trying it I jumped at the opportunity. The IFSC Clinic is situated in an ideal location for me as it is just a 10 minute walk from Connolly Station in Dublin.
At the beginning of May I dropped in for my consultation and my therapist talked me through the entire process, what to expect and all about the aftercare. We also had a chat about what areas I would like to get treated and I filled out a few of forms and did the mandatory patch test to ensure that I was suitable for the treatments. I was then scheduled in for my first treatment in the middle of May. I was told I would need up to six laser hair removal treatments overall and that these would be spaced out so I would have to come back every four to six weeks.
Havana Skin Clinic is one of the largest providers of Laser Hair Removal in Ireland and offers a wide selection of non-surgical and high-tech image-enhancing procedures for both your body and face.
What Is Hair Removal?
Laser Hair Removal for women is the most effective method of removing unwanted hair. Why continue to wax and shave when you can have a smooth and silky body with a course of Laser Hair Removal? Sounds good to me!
How did I find my first treatment?
I have a normal pain threshold so you could say I was a little nervous before going in for my first session. However, Caroline from Havana and all the girls in fact were all so nice and patient with me that they put my mind at great ease so when I begun my initial treatment my nerves were non existent. Now I can honestly say that I didn’t find the treatments that uncomfortable more so like a little pinch on my skin every now and then but they were over in no time and the “pain” (if you would even call it that) literally lasts seconds.
Before my appointment I was told to shave the areas being treated 24hours before the laser treatment. I was also advised that I could not wax, tweeze, apply tan or expose my skin to the sun before undergoing the treatment. The treatment lasted approximately 20 minutes. The areas I had treated were my under arms, bikini and stomach. During the treatment a laser gun is pressed lightly onto the skin for a couple of seconds. There is a beep, flash and tingling sensation. It is a quick process which is ideal if you’re short on time. My aftercare, couldn’t be simpler, there is just one product you will need to use – Aloe Vera which heals and restores the area of skin being treated.
Would I recommend it?
Yes, Yes and Yes! Havana Skin Clinic itself is one of the nicest I have been in. The treatments are great value for money and I am so happy with the results after one session that I am looking forward to seeing the overall result.
