The axilla, armpit, underarm, or oxter? You get the point. Like most South Asian girls, I have black hair and tan (golden!) skin. My skin is ridiculously prone to scarring and I shaved, waxed & Nair-ed my underarms — so basically my underarms were pretty horrendous and super dark looking.
About one year ago a girlfriend told me about laser hair removal. I was NOT immediately sold. I quickly remembered in 2007 having a college girlfriend getting laser hair removal on her chin — and it scarred and left burn marks! — No LASER HAIR REMOVAL FOR ME! But then this law school girlfriend showed me her underarms & I thought “Wow, I hate shaving and I currently HATE my underarms, I have NOTHING TO LOSE!” So I found an awesome halfoffdepot.com and purchased my first laser hair package. Guess what? It was great! I have probably shaved my underarms less than 10 times since I started my treatment (which I started a year ago), and currently love my underarms. The skin has lightened up and isn’t as scarred.
I think that before you go out and buy any sort of halfoffdepot.com or GroupOn laser hair removal package, you should google the places listed or even try to visit them if they’re near by! Make sure the place is clean and doctor run! Ask around? Do they have a Yelp profile?! Read the reviews.
If you have any questions about laser hair removal, I would love to answer them! Shoot me a comment!
