Laser Hair Removal

Miss A,

Have you heard anything about at-home laser hair removal tools? Do you think they are a waste of time and money? I want to clean up some unladylike problem areas.


Dear Harriet,

I have not heard of at-home laser hair removal. Maybe I’m not up on my infomercials.  I’m against at-home hair coloring, let alone laser hair removal! If you want professional results – go to a professional. You always get what you pay for!

I have gone to different places for laser hair removal, but have only been impressed by the service and results from Hela Spa.  Ask for Amber Meyer – she’s a sweet and talented young lady from Utah.  You’ll adore her. The advantage with laser hair removal is that it is permanent.  At Hela, they use ice and numbing cream, so it’s actually less painful than getting waxed. And You don’t have to let your hair grow to a particular length in order for the process to work, so that is another plus. I highly recommend it, but do realize that you need several treatments to get a good result.

I hope that this help!

– Miss A
