I very vividly remember being in eighth grade and having this little girl come up to me and nickname me Chewbacca, because I had hairy arms and hairy legs and it was… very difficult to go to school every day and know that people were making fun of me.
Back then there wasn’t Laser Hair Removal, so my only options were to, I mean, for my legs, obviously I shaved them, but for my arms, I just had to bleach my arm hair and that was like a weekly thing. I mean, I spent so much money on arm hair bleach, I mean, it was out of control. I did everything to try to not come across as this hairy person.
I think I heard about Ideal Image on the radio, and it was one of those things where in my head… I was like: laser hair removal, I mean, what is it gonna hurt at this point? I’ve tried everything else. It can’t hurt to go in and talk to somebody and see if I’m a candidate. And the lady that did my first consultation…all the girls there, you can tell that they knew that they were making a difference in someone’s life.
This definitely changed me as a person 100%. It is phenomenal. I haven’t bought razors - which are so expensive now - for years, because I never shave, never.
It’s not even anything on my mind anymore where it was always on my mind and the first thing on my mind before I had Laser Hair Removal. It’s amazing. It truly is amazing.
If I could speak to my fifteen year old self… you have a lot to look forward to is what I would tell her.
