Pros & Cons of Laser Hair Removal Treatment

So I was chatting with a friend some days ago, she is currently contemplating having the laser hair removal treatment done on her legs, and she has been doing some reading online about the pros and cons of having treatment done. We chatted a lot about my experience so far with the laser treatment; I have my next session over the weekend, and I am super excited.

Our chat kind of prompted this post. I think many people are still wary of the whole laser ‘thingy’. Some people think the treatment could lead to serious life threatening illnesses, while others think the hairs in the treated area would grow back with a vengeance, longer and more coarse. Anyways, here is what I think, based on my 4 laser hair removal sessions:


  1. It works. I have had 4 sessions already, I have 2 more sessions to go, and I started to notice a difference as soon as I had my first session. The hair on my chin, which is the area I am treating at the moment, had strands of coarse hair, but after the first laser session, the new growth is no longer visible to the naked eye.
  2. Each session is very quick, depending on the area to be treated. The treatment on my chin takes about 10 minutes for each session.
  3. The technique is very safe if performed correctly. So a patch test should be carried out before starting the treatment to see how well the area reacts to the laser, no makeup in the area to be treated to avoid burns, protective glasses should be worn at all time while undergoing the treatment, an ointment should be applied after the treatment to ensure the treated area is not irritated, and so on.
  4. The treatment is not as painful as threading, so if you can handle threading, then the discomfort you will feel while having this treatment done should be a walk in the park.
  5. There is no research to show that this treatment would lead to life threatening illnesses, or that the hairs in the treated area, will grow back longer and more coarse.

  1. The treatment does not come cheap. However there are finance options available in most clinics.
  2. The laser treatment promises permanent hair reduction and not permanent hair removal, so the rate at which the hair grows back will depend on your genetics.
  3. Some people could experience some itching, redness, burning, skin discolouration and swelling after having the treatment. This usually disappears within few days.
  4. Several sessions are usually required to reduce the hair growth, usually 6 – 8 sessions.

I do recommend having the laser hair removal treatment done, if you need it. It gives long-lasting results, compared to other hair removal methods, like shaving, threading, waxing and depilatories, and it is over in a matter of minutes.

How To Attract The ‘Right’ Traffic To Your Blog

If you want to attract just anyone to your blog, am sure you will find various posts/articles online everywhere telling you how to. This post is different. When I think of attracting the ‘right’ traffic, I am thinking of attracting people who will like and comment on my posts, follow me on my social media channels and most importantly, visit my blog again.

Most blog visitors make up their mind about a blog within seconds of reading it, so that first impression will determine if they visit the blog again or not. A good first impression will mean a good blog layout, fewer ads, and many other factors, but that will be a topic for another day. Let’s focus on attracting the ‘right’ visitors to your blog.


Here are some tried and tested strategies that have worked for my blog:

Facebook Groups

Join the relevant Facebook groups in your niche. There are so many of them on Facebook. For most of them,  you will have to request to join but you are usually accepted within hours of requesting. I am a member of UK Bloggers Group, Beauty, Fashion & Lifestyle Bloggers Group, Fashion Bloggers and UK Blogger Opportunities and they are all amazing groups. I like UK Bloggers Group in particular because there is a lot of engagement within the group. I have learnt a lot from the group members and my traffic and blog engagement has increased since I joined. That is what I mean by the ‘right’traffic. I have also discovered some amazing blogs and  bloggers.

Facebook Ads

Still on Facebook, I am assuming you have a Facebook page for your blog, if not, stop reading and create one now. If you do have one, set up a Facebook ad to promote your page. You can set it for as long as you like and spend whatever amount you are comfortable spending every day for as long as you want. You can select the specific countries you want your audience from, and the age, gender and their interests. I have found this very useful in attracting the right traffic to Fashion and Style Police because people who are interested in what I have to say, like my page, and engage with my blog.

Twitter Chats

I take part in various weekly Twitter chats. The hashtags of some of the chats I take part in are #fblchat, #bdib #fbloggers. I attract the right traffic when I take part in these chats. I also discover new blogs to follow and make new friends so they are quite good. Check out relevant Twitter chats in you niche and get involved. Your blog will thank you for it.

Twitter Harshtags

I use relevant Twitter hashtags in my niche to promote my blog content. I use #fbloggers #bbloggers #bloggers and so on, depending on what the post is about. I attract like-minded people to my blog and I find that they comment, like and/or follow my blog. That is the right traffic.

Comment on other blogs

I usually find the time every week to comment and follow other blogs I like. I find that 99% of the time, the blogger visits, comments and follows me right back without me asking for a follow back. Let me also add that I take the time to actually read the post and leave a ‘real’ comment. I tend not to visit and comment on very big blogs. I go for smaller blogs or blogs with similar following and engagement as my blog, I find that I attract the ‘right’ traffic when I do this as most of the readers are genuinely interested in those smaller blogs than the very big blogs, and they visit my blog and subscribe in one way or the other.

So there. You have the secrets to my blog engagement.  Share some of yours in the comment section if you have a blog. If you don’t, tell me why you enjoy reading my blog.
