I'm afraid I'm one of probably many people guilty of using these forums to research treatments, then not returning to give an account of how I got on.
About 18 months or so ago, I used this forum to find a laser hair removal clinic in London. Here's the original thread: http://cosmeticenhancementsforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5373&highlight=
As you can see, I ended up going with Laser Clear, a clinic near Liverpool Street station.
I have to say, a year and a half on, that I could not be much happier with the results. My hair is not the easiest to treat - being medium brown, but with a bit of red and blonde in there (and grey unfortunately) - but the first six sessions I had cleared virtually everything very effectively.
The areas which showed most resistance were the shoulders (not surprising as it was quite thick there), but even that was pretty clear after the last of my first six treatments in July 07.
I've since had 'top ups' (these are recommended every six months) in November, and another a couple of weeks ago, but these were only picking up a few stragglers.
Generally, my back looks fine. A bit of fluffy blonde hair, but nothing that looks at all unnatural. I think the laser has also helped clear up some acne scarring left behind by many painful years of waxing.
To sum up, what was once one of my greatest embarrassments is now something I hardly think about.
A sad note to finish on. The lady who runs the clinic, Ann, was recently admitted to hospital, and is quite ill I believe. I can only wish her a very speedy recovery - as I'm sure others will from this forum who have used Laser Clear.
She was refreshingly frank and up front with me at my consultation, warning me that blonde and red hairs were not easy to treat, and that laser hair removal was not a wholly permanent treatment. I trusted her because of that honesty, and I've got a great result which I'll always be grateful to her for.
