Who's had Brazilian laser hair removal?

I've been getting my underarms and bikini area done and figure I mine as well get the Brazilian done too. It's only a $300 more and I've been getting good results. I hate shaving there, hate having to get the area waxed because I have to wait for the hair to grow, then it just looks gross to me and then I have to worry about ingrowns. Ick. If I could, I would get my whole freakin' body lasered!!! Everything!

What I'm wondering is, how is the pain like? I'm tolerating the underarms and bikini line fine, but a Brazilian? That's different!

Hi! They had a special where the underams were free so it was $1200 for the bikini and underarms but really, it is $1200 just for the bikini area. I think it's $775? for the underarms. For a Brazilian, it's $1500, so I would just have to pay that $300 extra when I go in in May and it's for a total of 6 treatments that you go in for once a month. I was referred to this medical spa by someone online and have been very pleased with the results and staff! I wish I could afford getting laser done from head to toe!

Ive had 4 sessions and the only advice I have is get the numbing cream and ice it. This helps a lot!!! It just feels like rubber bands. Worth it though!!!! Its almost gone!!!! No more shaving!!!!!

I just had my first Brazilian and underarm treatment a few weeks ago. This is just my personal opinion, but the areas that I though would be the most sensitive weren't. The absolute worst part for me was the highest part like between the hip bones. With that being said, none of it was comfortable at all and I wouldn't recommend it without the numbing cream. There is a post around her somewhere that I started of me complaining about the pain because I did it the first time without the cream. NOT a good idea!

Okay, I have to ask. What exactly constitutes "Brazilian"? Is it EVERYTHING below the waist, but not the legs?

I've had laser hair removal done on the top of my feet. It hurt like @%&! but was totally worth it!!! I'd love to have my entire body done also.

P.S.
Never mind; I just looked it up. It sounds rather embarrassing and painful, but wouldn't it be great to be completely hair free???

I've been getting Brazilian waxes done regularly for several years now so a Brazilian laser isn't going to be any different for me. My first time though, I was sooooooooo embarassed!

I wish I had decided to get this laser business done sooner. It is expensive but Brazilian waxes are not cheap either and adds up.

They told me in my consultation that it was an 88% reduction in hair growth. That was good enough for me! I've had two treatments and I was amazed at the results even after the first treatment! When I went in for treatment #2, there was no hair to treat! She said that hair grows in different cycles so that they will continue to treat even though there is no visible hair.

I will be having my third treatment on Tues I am having my underarms and full brazilian LOVE it.

I get the numbgel cause I couldn't tolerate getting the hood/lips without it OUCH!

I also decided on the second treatment to get my scraggly granny hairs on my chin not totally dark but just a few and my upper lip done she cut the cost WAY down and its only $150 for those 2. The underarms/bikini was around $900 or so I would have to go back and double check.

I would LOVE to get my legs done next LOL

Zap! Laser! I did it!

On full legs, underarm, hands and fingers, and brazilian bikini. The big surprise was that the parts that really kill to wax: the between the legs, the labia, etc, was the least painful area to laser! For me the killer was refining the pubic triangle in front. TMI? sorry!
But all over id say it was if waxing hurts like 10/10, lasering hurts like 7/10 and is waaay faster. It took about 30-40 minutes for everything i mentioned to be done.

BTW never do laser near the hairline, upper arms or on your back: my laser lady said it stimulates those follicles and makes the hair grow back robustly and thicker!

The first time that i got my brazilian (i got impulse light treatment not laser) i cried!! it was so painful!! The next lot of sessions i got a local anaesthetic cream to apply before i went and it made it a little more bearable

Oh I want this done SO bad!! I used to go for waxes every month but I started doing it myself. It was killer at first but after a couple of months I got used to it and now I don't even think twice. It would be nice not to have to worry about any hair!! I'm all for head hair, eyebrows, and eyelashes, but the rest could go! Why are girls made with all that hair anyway? YUCK!
