I have a mustache. It’s disgusting. It started to appear somewhere around 10 years ago. I used to bleach it. As it got worse and more noticeable, I started disintegrating it with Nair. Most recently, I’ve been having it ripped out via a wax job. That freakin’ hurts, by the way. Esp if the person waxing it doesn’t get it all and has to tweeze the remaining stubborn ones. YEEOUCH!
This past Saturday I entered the realm of laser hair removal. It doesn’t cost as much as you might think. To have the upper lip done costs $50 per visit and takes about 6 visits (spaced 6-8 weeks apart). And, and, and… you pay as you go!! I was getting my upper lip waxed about that often at $20 per visit if you factor in the tip. Hmm. Do the math. Fifty times 6 is $300 and the hair will be gone permanently. Twenty times 6 is $120 and that’s per year. Every year. For the rest of my life. It’s worth it.
I wondered if it would be as painful as waxing and was ready for the worst. It was not nearly as painful. Similar to being flicked in the lip with a quick, hard shot of warm air. If you’ve ever had a puff of air shot into your eyes at the eye doctor’s office you can imagine a laser removing hair. Only difference is the air is warm and the flick sort of stings a tiny bit. Afterward, the smell of burnt hair lingers in the room.
I could get addicted to laser hair removal. Easily. After we’re done with my 6 treatments for my upper lip, I am going to have my armpits done. Can you imagine never having to shave your armpits again, ladies? Me either! How awesome is that?!!!
Have any of you had laser hair removal?
