    I'm looking into it too. My beautician said that it works best on people with pale skin and dark, coarse hair.

    Default IPL- your experiences

    I've had laser on my bikini and underarms, definitely worth it although I do have to go back every now an then as it does start to come back a bit. I had my legs done once and came out in a horrible rash that lasted 6 weeks.

    It's great, it works best on your bikini too cause it works better on thick black hair. Facial hair you'll need more than 6 sessions, and more maintenance sessions.
    But yeah it hurts like hell!!!! Get a numbing cream for downstairs.
    But please don't go to a therapist that works at home, do it properly at a laser clinic. You can get very scarred by an inexperienced therapist, just because your friend didn't your skin is different.

    Don't worry, it'll work. I had thick black chin hairs after kids from hormones, they've never grown back and I only got 5 sessions on that part.

    My hair isn't very dark? This is my only concern I'm blonde everywhere bit darker where my Brazilian & underarms are but my legs/arms pure blonde!

    I will call a few places, and if your in Adelaide give me a name! I have had tattoos so I'm assuming it will roughly hurt the same! I've never been waxed maybe I should try hahaha!

    Yep same as tattoo removal, like a luckaband flicking you but worse imo lol Go see someone at a laser clinic to see your options, ipl won't work on your blond hair, maybe normal laser will be better for you?

    I had laser down there, don't really technically know the difference to IPL But was happy with laser.

    Would love to do underarms too but it was going to nearly double the cost ($100/session)
