Starting My Laser Hair Removal Journey As A Black Woman

This post is sponsored by Milan Laser Hair Removal.

Lasers aren’t for you. Lasers aren’t for you. I’ve heard that so often. As a black woman with hyperactive skin, I’ve been curious about laser hair removal as an alternative to waxing. But, I always hesitated because some laser technology is simply not sophisticated enough for dark skin. So, from hyperpigmentation to scarring, the possibilities of side effects for dark skin scared me away. But, after my visit to Milan Laser Hair Removal, I learned quickly that there were safe and effective options for me after all.

Milan Laser Hair Removal Consultation

Last November, I walked into a Milan Laser Hair Removal consultation with a long list of questions. I threw question after question at the manager, interrogation style. She didn’t even flinch. Instead, one-by-one, her answers put me at ease. For one, all laser treatments at Milan are provided by medical professionals. And, the best news? The laser technology used is precise enough to target the hair follicle on the darkest skin tones.

My First Laser Hair Removal Procedure

My response? Sign me up! Seriously, I walked in just for a consultation and went straight into an underarm laser treatment. I felt especially confident at the Brentwood Milan Laser location because of Abby, the medical professional on site. She has a background in dermatology, and her competence is so evident. She’s quick too, making the process a breeze.

Laser Hair Removal Progress

I’ve been doing laser treatments every 5 weeks since that first session. I feel like I am basically hair-free under my arms and an added bonus is the way it seems like the skin doesn’t appear shadowed anymore from the irritation or stubble that comes with shaving.
