Zap, Ouch! Zap, Ouch!

So I just got back from my first laser hair removal session. I think this concept is amazing (barring that it works!!). I walked in and Susan, the RN, was super nice. She brought me into the “laser room” and before I sat down she told me not to worry about being shy because she was a labor and delivery nurse for over 20 years. OK – so basically she has seen thousands of vagenes – it did make me feel better as I was standing in only my bra moments later…

I had to lay on the table with my arms above my head (for the under arms) and my ankles together, knees bent with them out like frogs legs (sorry if this is TMI but I was wondering how this would work and I am sure maybe others are too??). It took all of 10 seconds for my lip, 2 minutes for my underarms and about 5 minutes for my “lower area”. I won’t lie – it hurt! But when she was done, so was the pain. Yes, there were times I was like, “Can I take a break?” and, “Ouch that really hurts”, and moments where I was breathing in a lamaze-like fashion. BUT I am so glad I agreed to do this!

I have to go back 4 more times, each time being about 5-6 weeks apart.
