Why I prefer Electrolysis over Laser

Let's face it....we all have hair in places we can't control or want. And these days waxing is great and fast but most of us want something PERMANENT done to our lovely hairs in places we can't stand. I've fortunately had the opportunity to try both Laser and Electrolysis.

I started doing Electrolysis about 6 years ago @ Spa Gregories by my favorite Karen Lunzman. I wanted to do my eyebrows because being an Italian and brows...not good. So for about a year, every week, Karen would *zap* my lovely hairs and shape my brown line. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. I don't have the shadow that was always there and all the hairs that she zapped are PERMANENTLY removed. Electrolysis is a more guaranteed form of hair removal.

So a few years after I decided to try laser for my underarms and bikini. Um waste of money for ME. Everyone is different, for instance my best friend benefits from it far more than I did. Don't get me wrong the shadow that would come under my arms is gone and the hairs are a lot finer but after almost two years of treatments...I still have hair. See unfortunately with laser RESULTS are NOT always GUARANTEED. Lasers work best on people with dark hair but with LIGHT skin. For Electrolysis RESULTS ARE GUARANTEED it kills every follicle the Electrolysist treats.

I highly recommend Spa Gregories to get Electrolysis done. They have 3 awesome Electrolysists however I highly recommend, Karen Lunzman.

Wishing you all a awesome day!!
