I had 30 minutes on my upper lip, she got quite a bit of hair but now the moustache area is a little swollen and bumpy...I put numbing creme on and it didnt do squat..its painful but its the only permanent hair removal available.I am afraid the swelling wont go down I am paranoid I put neosporin on and ice its been 1 day so far.Did anyone else get swollen? I was surprised because I have tried a lot of procedures: IPL.polaris,yag etc and never had any kind of negative reaction,I hope I dont scar!

I am totally impressed that you did it for 30 minutes! I could only handle 20 min at a time and I had her take breaks and work on my eye brows every few minutes! Good luck! The results are worth it!

Try some Aloe Vera gel, I've had some laser hair removal and its amazingly soothing afterwards.

I must say though, that I find fresh aloe gel much, much better than even the 99 percent stuff in tubes, so I keep an aloe plant in the kitchen at all times, and just break a tiny piece off the leaves (poor plant!) whenever I ned any gel. Works like a miracle on burns too, no scarring.

Shock

Wow, thats impressive! Mines only about 2 foot tall at the most.


On the same day as my treatment, I was applying the aloe every hour or so. After then it was just once a day.

It seemed to fade some old acne scars too.

yes, I forgot about the benefits of applying fresh aloe vera, I had used it last year when I had plastic surgery, it did seem to help with healing.
