I don’t know about you but I can get a little grooming lazy when I travel and have wanted to try permanent hair removal for women for a long time. Katka from Katka Travels tells us all about why she loves getting LHR and where you can find affordable laser hair removal deals too!
I’m a carry-on girl. Excessive luggage is not something I want to deal with, but carrying-on means making a few sacrifices. Thankfully, there is solid shampoo, soap leaves and those awesome roll-up water bottles, but the one thing I’m constantly asked to ditch by TSA, is my razor blade. So what, now I have to check my luggage simply so I can shave my pits? Maybe not – the solution is permanent hair removal! And I’m pretty addicted…
I’m a hairy gal – In Italian, my last name actually translates to “The Hairy One.” Hairiness is something I’ve struggled with my entire life (I was teased as a kid), despite trying any and all hair-removal products/services on the market. Shaving, waxing, Nair and electrolysis are tedious processes; and seem to be temporary fixes to a long-term issue.
How great would it be to take a beach vacation and not worry about armpit stubble, or bikini-line nightmares, ever again? I don’t know about you, but I spend at least fifteen minutes in the shower shaving from head to toe. That extra fifteen minutes SHOULD be spent exploring flea markets, sampling wine, swimming under waterfalls…I’d rather do anything BUT shave while out on the road.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, “Laser devices send specific concentrated beams of light through the skin that are absorbed by the melanin (dark) pigment present in the hair follicle shafts. Because hair grows in cycles, repeated treatments are necessary to destroy the hair follicles.” You can find more information online and always read reviews before purchasing a package, to ensure the laser clinic or dermatologist is a good fit for you.
The positive results I’ve seen from one session of LHR have also boosted my confidence significantly. The time I save by not shaving is just more time I can spend exploring, less stuff I have to pack/discard at the airport, and overall, one less upkeep to worry about. Whether I’m island-hopping through Greece or cruising around the Caribbean, being hair-free makes a difference.
