It’s said that even the longest journey begins with just a single step. Well, in my case, this one begins with a Patch Test.
I have decided to embark on a programme of Laser Hair Removal, with a view to ultimately having a hairless face and body. I’m fed up with having to do so much shaving and depilation before I can go out in girl mode, and feel like Cinderella with the clock approaching midnight when it comes to facial hair (sorry to break the Suspension of Disbelief by mentioning that). I should also be able to wear a less heavy foundation when all the facial hair is gone, which should be good.
So today I visited a ProSkin clinic and had a Patch Test with their Cynosure Elite Laser Hair removal machine. The girl who did it was really nice and seemed very knowledgeable, and did test treatments on my leg, arm, chest and face. I have to be honest and say it really stung, especially on the chest where my hair is quite coarse, but I think I can bear it. And the rewards will be worth it, I hope!
So this is all very exciting!
Meanwhile, I’m back to Salsa classes on Monday. Woot!
