Had my first session today, after a consultation last week. Went to sk:n as I heard it was the best.

I have had really bad thick dark hair on my chin and it did hurt and smell of burning was quite bad but seems ok now. Booked 8 sessions.

My friend had it done previously and says she was happy with the results.

Just hoping it will be worth it after the sessions.......

I have - but not on my face. Had everywhere below the neck done though. Went to sk:n in London. Must have been around 2006/7. Still hair free.

Remember the smell and the needle stabbing pain though. Especially on my undercarriage! Shock

Had legs and underarms done in 2008 - brilliant. So worth it.

How much did it cost for everything below the chin?

I had it done about 10 years ago. I only had 4 or 5 sessions, really should have had more but something came up. My bikini line and armpits are not much different but the hair on my legs is very patchy and doesn't grown nearly as quickly as it used to, it's also nowhere near as thick. If I'd had more sessions I think my legs would be hair free. I really should go back for some more sessions.


grapejuicerocks · 18/06/2015 23:42

And how much time in total?

Have had bikini line and underarms done. SO worth it. And it is only a couple of minutes of pain and then it is done which I prefer to the alternatives!

I had 6 sessions of IPL (is that the same?) full face hairline to mid neck. It was about £600 about 5 years ago.

It honestly changed my life. I used to be so self conscious I would cover my face while talking, especially outside in bright light. I spent half an hour a da plucking and bleaching.

Now I have no fluff on the sides of my face and none of those wispy stray hairs around the hairline (my eyebrows nearly joined my hair!) so I feel like my hair looks nicer. My eyebrows are straight and tidy, no more monobrow - I still get a few that need plucking at the edges because they didn't want to ruin the shape of them so we're quite careful not to get too close.

Lip and chin are soooo much better. 5 years on I have a few springing back to life so will probably get a top up when I have some spare cash. In the meantime one of those springy epilator sticks for 99p from ebay does the job.

Good luck with it, I really hope you see the results. It's such a confidence boost to finally not fee ashamed of my face. Sad

I think it was about £1k all told. Had 6 sessions on full legs and arms and 9 on underarms and bikini. Took about 14 months all in (I did legs and arms first then the other bits)


19lottie82 · 19/06/2015 08:04

For the 8 sessions on my chin it cost about £320 so £1k for all that seems cheap. Sk:n is expensive but I've been assured by a few people it's the best.
