Laser Tech Training: Zipping My Confidence Back Up

By: Annelise Vintila 

My childhood best friend is platinum blonde since birth, and though she has plenty of body hair, you can’t physically see it unless you hold a microscope to her upper thigh. I, on the other hand, have so much hair that a gorilla would be jealous and I have been dealing with that all my life. There has always been a little bit of jealousy on my part because in the summer we would have random beach days, and all she had to do was put on a bikini and be on her merry way while I was stuck in the shower scrubbing ingrown hairs away.

Unwanted body hair can have a big impact on a person’s confidence

Laser Tech Training

I have been trying to be kinder over the years to my rapid body hair growth, repeating to myself that ‘I’m doing the best I can with what I got,’ but it gets to a certain point where you want to go on an impromptu night out with your girlfriends, but your body hair hinders your confidence to the point of not having guts to talk to men. I have been researching laser hair removal since my early 20’s and the courses associated with the procedure because I wanted to educate myself on the long-term effects. Studying at laser hair removal school includes learning about skin typing, wound healing, laser tissue-effects and direct client consultations. All laser technicians must complete this training in order to safely practice their craft and must understand that each client is different. I met a lady a couple of months ago, Lidia we’ll call her, who was also deeply contemplating getting laser hair removal because her body hair was getting in the way of normal excursions and activities; however, she was not set entirely on it because she felt that her body hair was also her empowerment. Lidia was stuck in the middle because on one side, she grew up with so much body hair that at times it was uncomfortable, but it contributed to who she transformed to be; on the other side she wanted to get rid of all her body hair to liberate her permanently from the shaving and the waxing. I can appreciate both sides, though I stand firm with getting rid of my body hair, with the help of a professional who has laser tech training, as soon as it grows.

It’s important to feel comfortable and confident!

Remove the Toxic

I am not one to resort to clichés, but everyone truly does have the ability to feel beautiful physically and emotionally. It’s a lifelong process of weeding out what makes you happy and what makes you miserable, but once you can find a healthy balance you become a tree that doesn’t shake in the wind. My wind is my body hair and through my journey of becoming the best version of myself, I will strongly consider laser hair removal.

This course was challenging and my instructor was extremely knowledgeable. The hands-on experience with the Lasers was great.
