Long-time readers may recall that one of us has PCOS (that would be me).
One of the lovely things that comes with PCOS is dark hair growing places women are not supposed to have hair. In me, that results in sort of a Fu Manchu facial hair thing going if I don’t pay attention.
Lately my facial hair has started to become a huge hassle. Even with my tweezerman I’m spending more and more time plucking and/or shaving.
I paid for professional laser treatment on my legs once but even though I paid in advance, when an appointment had to be rescheduled I just sort of didn’t finish going to my sessions. My leg hair is a lot thinner than it was prior to treatment and during some follicle cycles I have kind of weird bald spots. I’m sure I would have more of those bald spots if I had finished the treatments.
My skin, btw, is super pale and my unwanted hair is super dark, making me the perfect candidate for laser.
In the best of all possible worlds, I would do laser again, this time on my face and I would go to all the treatments and I would be happy. I don’t trust myself to actually go to appointments. I can’t even get my hair cut more than once a year (and then only if I have free time during business hours when I’m in Boston).
So I was watching a youtube video and the commercial suggested I get a Tria home hair removal laser machine. They are $450, or IIRC, about the cost of two-four professional laser treatments (it takes about 6 treatments done with the right timing for permanent hair removal).
$450 is a lot. We will have money leftover from our year in Paradise and other expenses. So we can afford it. But should we?
It’s got 4 amazon stars on average, with 45% giving 5 star and 23% giving 1 star.
So… what should I do? Buy this? Laser? Electrolysis? Nothing?
