Trust is a big part of my treatment
I had my consultation with Gosia, who was going to be performing my treatment. From the word ‘go’ she made me feel so comfortable, nothing was too embarrassing to talk about. Laser hair removal isn’t like most treatments. The results aren’t instant and it’s a long term commitment, so it’s important to have a good rapport with your practitioner.
Gosia really made me feel at ease, which was important to me as I was going to be showing her every inch of my body during my treatment. I didn’t want it to be awkward or uncomfortable so it was incredibly reassuring that by the end of the consultation, it actually felt like we had formed a sort of friendship.
After my consultation I booked my first treatment, which was quite a liberating experience - I felt like I was taking control of the situation. It was a really exciting prospect.
The treatment itself was a lot quicker than I expected – obviously as I was having my whole body treated I thought the process would be really long-winded. I knew that some areas of my body would be a lot more sensitive than others, but I was mentally prepared and as I say, it was over before I knew it.
I owed it to myself to do my research
The main thing for me was doing my research - I’m so pleased I did. I was worried that the treatment may damage my skin or I may end up with someone who wasn’t adequately skilled carrying out my treatment.
There are so many places out there that offer laser hair removal and you need to make sure you go to a reputable and trusted clinic. It was important to me to find someone who was both professional and sympathetic- exactly what I found Transform to be.
I couldn’t believe how at ease I felt throughout the process; I knew as I was having several sessions it was really important to feel comfortable with the team. I felt like I could be completely honest, before, during and after the treatment.
One thing I would stress from experience is that you really don’t need to feel embarrassed or put off, so many women suffer from this problem, you’re not on your own, they just don’t talk about it.
As much as it felt like a big thing when I was younger, to now be able to say I’m doing something about it is just amazing! I’m looking forward to being able to get my legs out in the summer and not having to worry about it.
Looking good… and more importantly, feeling great!
I can honestly say I’m feeling empowered and liberated by the whole experience.
I’ve had to deal with intense hair removal my entire life so I’m now looking forward to a life where it doesn’t dominate my thoughts quite so much. It’s like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders, I can makes plans without having to incorporate my tiresome hair removal regime.
This really wasn’t about looking good or for vanity purposes; this whole process has been about me learning to live my life the way I want to and not having to worry so much about keeping up with hair removal and exposing certain parts of my body.
Transform has made it a positive experience for me and I’m more than happy to share my story so that no one has to feel the way I did.
I’m thrilled with the results so far and would strongly recommend Transform to anyone in similar position to me. You don’t have to suffer and put up with excessive hair that’s bothering you, there really is something you can do about it!
