As a teenager, One of things that I wanted to gift myself was “Laser Treatment”. I always had this dream that once I start earning I will gift this to myself. However over the years I just forgot about it or the heavy price tag/doubts in my mind holded me back.
One day my friend was sharing her friend’s happy laser treatment experience and that made me realize, oh “that was my dream”. I went home, thought about it and called up Kaya Skin Clinic. Since laser is a bit risky thing and since I was getting it done for first time, I wanted to go with a renowned brand. Thus KAYA only come to my mind.
One package includes 6 sittings that you have to take over a period of year/years, depending on your hair growth.
Process: They will make you lie down comfortably and then shave off your hair. Next they will apply a thick layer of a cool gel. On top of that, the attendant will start putting laser beams to your skin. Sometimes, it will prick a bit but that goes away in seconds. By the time you realize the pain the session will be over. It is really a very quick process. The attendant will then apply ice over and put a cream.
Oh ya, in between you can smell your hairs burning away 😉
Based on your hair type, they will suggest the next session, which will usually be after 1 month and from then the frequency between each session will increase. After the treatment you will see some hair growing back, don’t panic, that’s dead hair. Just shave it off. The new set of hairs will take around 20-30 days to be back.
Here’s my take on Underarms and Upper lips:
Underarms: You will start seeing the results after first session only. The hair growth will be less frequent and the process is also less painful. There won’t be any dark patches around the area. In fact, they have some treatment to lighten that area also. So go sleeveless whenever you want.
Upperlips: Hmm.. For this since hairs are very small, the results will take 2/3 sessions to show their actual effect. For me it took 3 sessions, before I could see any significant difference. Now I don’t even remember that I was the person who had to visit parlor every 10 days to get upper lips done. I couldn’t be happier, you see.
The decision to get lasers done was one of the best gifts I have given myself. Every penny worth spending.
15k package for Underarms. I got 50% discount on that. During Month of July-Aug watch out for offers
13K around for Upper lips. I got discount on that too.
For me the package costed around 16k.
Do I recommend: Yes, especially Underarms but you have to go to a renowned place. Don’t get attracted by those heavy discounts everywhere. It is your skin baby.
Some questions that will come up in your mind:
->What if my hair grows back before my next session is scheduled?
Just Shave it off or use cream. Do not wax/thread. The KAYA attendant told me that if you go back to waxing, it will open up your pores and hair will start growing again in other areas
->What if 6 sessions are not enough.?
Well for people with thicker hairs, it will take time. So post 6 sessions, you again need to take further sessions which might be once/twice in a year and will cost around 1k (As I was told ). Not a bad deal still.
I haven’t observed any
Hope I was able to clear some of your doubts. I had so many before I made up my mind that I want to get this done someday. Now that I have, I am not sure why I even doubted it 🙂
