Zahrah Perry on her #JourneyToSmooth
This is an excerpt from Zahrah's blog, which you can visit at The Perry Book.
Zahrah: I thought I would share my new secret to hair removal. I was very lucky to be introduced to IPL (Intense Pulsed Light treatment) with the Legs Eleven Salon. I was quite concerned as I am a rather shy person when it comes to my body, which is another reason why I cannot imagine doing the "spread eagle" to get rid of any hair in any of "those" places. Legs Eleven were kind enough to invite me to come on board the Journey to Smooth, where each of us chose a desired body part to rid of hair permanently.
I chose my underarms as they seem to be the fastest growing and the darkest hair on my body. I went for my patch test consultation, where my friendly therapist, Tiana explained the 8 sessions and how IPL works. We then proceeded to test a small part of skin on my armpit to ensure that my body did not react negatively to the treatment. My armpits passed the test and a few days later, I returned for my first full session. Each session takes about 10 minutes in total, which is perfect for my busy lifestyle.
I have completed my second session and already I see a noticeable difference in the growth of the hair. It appears to be thinner and delayed in growth by 2 days. I am also able to shave during the treatment which is much better than having to wait for your next "wax sesh" as my girlfriends put it.
With the large waits in between treatment sessions, you are also able to budget accordingly, without feeling pressure to have cash for your next treatment shortly after. This brings me to the question on all of your glossed lips, price? Each session costs R380 per area (underarms are together). It may seem pricey, but if you purchase one less pair of shoes each month, you could have no more hair to deal with! Imagine no waxing or shaving ever again!
