Laser Hair Removal Top-Up's - Julie's Diary

Hey all!!! πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹

In back at my fave Medispa, Mint Kilkenny for week 36!! 😊😊

For today's treatment, I had my appointment for laser hair removal with Sheila πŸ’šπŸ’š
This has been an ongoing treatment for me for some time now.
In the beginning, I would have it usually once a month as it can take a couple of sessions to see long-term results, whereas now it's really just "top up" treatments which are few and far between as I have barely any regrowth thanks to the success of the treatments 😊

If I'm going to be honest....I really wasn't expecting any results at all being a "redhead".

Being realistic... How many of us lovely gingers/blondies/fair-haired people have been turned away for laser before?? πŸ‘Ž

I know this from my own experience a couple years back. I actually rang a clinic enquiring about laser hair removal. The first thing the girl asked me (over the phone I might add)  was "what colour hair do you have"? To which I replied...red 😊

Then she basically said, nope... It won't work! She then ended the conversation, without even asking if I'd like to come in for a consultation πŸ˜”

I was a bit disappointed as you could imagine but possibly it was down to the machine that that clinic used at the time, I'm not sure. But I thought that I was destined to live a life of buying endless razors πŸ™ˆ

Anyhooooo...Fast forward to Mint Kilkenny and my whole opinion of laser was turned on its head!!! πŸ’«

For one, they have the most state-of-the-art, efficient and safe machine when it comes to hair removal, no matter what your hair colour. But they also have an amazing and knowledgeable laser expert in the form of the lovely Sheila 😊

When I first began my Mint Journey, Sheila sat down with me for a full consultation on laser to see what would benefit me most.

She assessed my hair and decided on a treatment plan for me. Luckily, for my underarm hair was a good candidate for it to work well. And I can certainly vouch for it, that it has and I couldn't be happier!!! 😊

Sheila specialises in the use of Mint's state-of-the-art Candela GentleMax Pro machine, which is used for the most efficient laser hair removal, but also it targets pigmentation, thread veins and fungal nail issues βœ”βœ”βœ”βœ”

Sheila also specialises in microneedling, rejuvapen and AlumierMD skin peels πŸ‘

For my appointment today, Sheila firstly allowed me time to get settled, then cleansed, sterilized and marked out the treatment area.  Both underarms usually take approximately 5 mins altogether to treat, I always chat away during it so it's always over before I know it! πŸ˜‚

The concentrated laser pulses give off a tingling sensation and are followed each time by a cool puff of air on the skin which is a really great added benefit to the treatment making it completely manageable and pain free πŸ‘

The Candela GentleMax Pro is the gold standard in laser hair removal so it is well worth booking in for a consultation if might be something you are interested in trying.... especially if you are fed up of bumps, nicks and ingrown hairs caused by waxing or shaving.

It’s suitable for both men and women, so if you have any queries on it at all, just give the girls in Mint a call and they will be more than happy to help with any information you need πŸ’–

Now is the perfect time before holiday season to start your laser treatments too 🌞🌞😎😎

That’s all for this week guys and gals.....

Hope you enjoyed my little diary and found it helpful 😁

See you all next time,

Bye for now πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹
