    Please beware of laser hair removal. It works for some people and it doesn’t for some people.

    I started laser hair removal on my underarms,legs bikini area and abdomen last year. I was very excited when I started because I am a very very hairy girl and I just wanted any thing to help with the hiar. So I did my research and also ask some people and the all said laser was the real deal. Mind you from my research, the only side effects that where mentioned was pain, skin burn and discomfort.

    So I booked my appointment for 5 sessions. After going in for my first appointment, I noticed that my underarms development a very nasty smell akin to a rotten egg,omg. Before laser I didn’t have a smelly under arms. So when I told my technician she told me that it would eventually go away and that no one has ever complained about having this problem.hmmm, I believed her(wort mistake).

    The second session came and I went in for my appointment. This time my underarms began to sweat profusely and smell too. Before laser,I sweated normal . The sweating I had after laser was nothing like before: I would literally sweat when I’m on my bed, when I’m in the library , when I’m sleeping, infact my underarms was a running faucet that could not be turned off and mind you this was in winter period and it was very very cold(-25/-10) so why was I sweating so bad when it was really cold. Good lord. Then came the biggest side effect of them all.(I also had to cancel my other appointments because of all the problems it caused me.)

    When summer came, I was jejely walking to school when I noticed a cool sensation on my butt. So I had to go to the washroom to know what it was and lo and behold I was sweating on my butt and bikini area omg. My panties was drenched in sweat. I cried my eyes out on that day. Now I have a very uncomfortable sweaty butt and I regret ever getting laser. Now I don’t wear leggings, body con dresses in fact any thing that is not jeans because I’d sweat through them all. And the worst part is that doctors keep denying that there is no correlation between laser and sweating.

    I’ve managed to control my underarms sweat and smell with drysol. It really did wonders for me but I’m still left with butt and bikini area sweat. I’ve tried everything from gold bond powder , apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, aloe Vera and none of them worked.

    Since my laser treatments, I’ve also noticed that my hair grew out more: I’m 2x hairier than I was before laser.
    When you google laser side effects, pain, discomfort and getting burned pops up.and you will see nothing about sweating and smelling after laser hair removal. You only see these ones I mentioned if you know the type of side effects you are searching for. After my experience, I searched ” laser sweaty mess” and this forum popped up
    These are real people that got the same side effect I did and I only found this after my appointments.

    I know how tempting it can be to get laser hair removal especially with all the promotion going on on Instagram. I’m my case I have PCOS so you can imagine the kind of hair I’m dealing with. I just wanted anything that would finally reduce the amount of hair I have on my body but unfortunately for me, I went from frying pan to fire. My advice is that before getting laser treatment, try it out a small area of your body to see if there are any side-effects.
    I also want to point out that this is not because I’m dark skinned ;so many black and tanned people have done this with great success. In fact when you go to the forum I posted above ,you will realize that most of them are not even dark skinned based on the type of laser they used. I used YAG laser which is the only laser recommended for dark and tan skinned women.
    Please stick to waxing or shaving if you can because the success of laser hair removal is not don’t want to end up miserable like me? .

    Bella please turn this into a post if you can. Because I wish I saw posts like this before I got laser treatments.

      that sounds like a nightmare, sorry oh. i wish i never even started shaving, not to talk of other things. i have sensitive skin with tendency to ingrown hairs. the hair itself never grew back soft again. i say never do any permanent body modifications generally. and test yourself first for irritations when checking hair removal options.
