Laser hair removal

I've always shaved my bikini line, and dabbled in waxing but I'm so sensitive I get rashes from both.

Starting to consider booking a course of laser hair removal before our holiday in May.
Does anyone have any recommendations/ advice & success stories please?

I've had it done and it's transformed the way I feel about wearing a swimming costume, it's brilliant! I had a course of 6 treatments each 6 weeks apart and I no longer have any growth apart from the odd, thin straggler. I also had my armpits done too as had a Groupon offer when I libed in the USA. I'd wholeheartedly recommend it, painless and effective.

I've had a Brazilian and armpits Dione. 9 years and still as smooth as a baby's bum. I used to get horrible ingrown hairs too, which are a thing of the past. Would love to get my legs done! But it's such a large are.

I would definitely recommend, but make sure it's laser hair removal and not IPL.

Your messages are exactly what I wanted to hear smile thank you!

Bella it's definitely laser hair, called the GentleMax laser which is apparently a combination of two of the best lasers around..

According to google that is.
