I'm having my bikini line permanently removed via laser. I had my third appointment yesterday and it really effing hurt - more than the first two. I've booked six treatments. Can anyone tell me if it gets more painful. I'm dreading going back.

I hate to tell you this...but mine grew back! I probably didn't have enough appointments, but it was very disappointing.

No, the first appointment was okay. The second was bearable, then the third was OUCH LADY!!!

I have six booked - aparently that is enough to get rid of it for good.

Mabanbana - gutted yours grew back. How many apps did you have? I've heard really good things about it but you do have to have six at least. Also what type of laser treatment did you have?

Is it IPL? I've had it done for veins it didn't hurt much at all, however it didn't improve the broken veins either.

So is it a waste of money for hair removal then?

NO WAY! Are you serious? You've got me frightened now. They didn't mention this when I was signing away £425.

Yes it is IPL. Oh shite I may just not go back.

you will be okay - make sure you take strong painkillers about 30 mins before you go - takes the edge of it.
