Some of you may be wondering what a laser hair removal experience is like. Well, I will share with you what my experience at BodyLase is like. Come with me. Above is the standard treatment room. To the right of the bed you see the lasers.
Above you will see the laser. When receiving a laser hair removal treatment, most times your practitioner will have you cool your skin with ice packs or a cooled glass plate. With this particular model, there is an attachment that blows cold air on the skin to keep it cool during treatment.
In this picture, I am receiving the laser treatment. She has placed a tongue depressor under my nose to prevent some of the air from going in my nose. This actually was the worst part of the treatment. The air used to cool my skin is soo forceful it literally took my breath away. Again, you see the orange light showing the practitioner the area that she is treating.
Special thanks to Karen Albright at Bodylase for allowing me to take pictures in her facility. Thanks also go out to Meredith for being patient while pictures were taken during our last session & to Matt for stepping in to be the photographer.
The next post in this series will show my progress after 3 treatments.
