Laser Hair Removal Update

Cyndi & I went back for our second laser hair removal treatment. I'm happy to say that it was not painful at all. Also, both Cyndi and I have noticed a significant decline in hair growth. My sister tried to scare me by saying that the laser could mess up the glands(?) in my under arm, but so far I haven't noticed any side effects.

The procedure may have also been less painful due to the use of a machine that blows cold air onto the lasered area. I sure wish they had this machine last week.

The only drawback to this whole experience is dealing with the poor customer service. These people are possibly some of the least friendly people I've met in Korea thus far. Typically, Korean customer service has been excellent, particulary in the aethetics industry. Unfortunately, these ladies are rough and gruff. I know I may seem very young, but it is still customary for people in the service industry to use formal Korean. The woman who was working on me used 반밀 (informal Korean). I was quite peeved. I am a paying customer. I better hear some ~iminidas or ~yos.

As exciting as it is to hear about the status of my under arm hair, I probably won't blog about the laser treatments until it's all said and done.

Speaking of lasers, Cyndi's going to get LASEK surgery done next week. I was considering the waveform LASIK surgery, but I chickened out. I'm going to let Cyndi try it out first...ㅋㅋㅋ

There's just something about Korea that makes you want to undergo cosmetic procedures.

This is exactly what I've been thinking about doing, especially since my friend in Suwon got it done too. She only had to go for three sessions though. I wouldn't have thought to shave beforehand, though.

I recommend shaving before hand. Otherwise, they'll just use one of those eyebrow blades.

I didn't think to shave before hand either. That may be why the woman was a little gruff with me.
