A review from blogger Fantail Flo
Hi everyone! In 2021, I decided to take the plunge and try laser hair removal at Oxford because I wanted to get rid of my armpit hair forever. As a rather hairy girl, shaving was becoming a problem and my armpits were getting irritated, dark and unpleasant to look at. Adding to the fact that I lived in a hot climate (Hong Kong), laser hair removal became my option of choice for getting rid of my hair forever.
I found a lovely clinic called Bare UK that was run by Julie, who specialises in laser hair removal as well as fat removal and skin tightening procedures. Bare UK is located at Oxford City Centre and is convenient for students and residents who live in Oxford. The clinic is affordable and offers the highest-quality service out there, and best of all, their laser equipment is pain-free and super advanced!
I did a review of my initial session at the clinic and I then had 6 laser hair removal treatments over the course of a few months. Since July 2021, I had sessions every 6-8 weeks and finally had my last session in February 2022. I am so excited to share with you the results of my laser hair removal. Everything I write is completely my honest experience, and I have to say it really changed my life.
Before and After Results
Pictures speak a thousand words. I want to show you what my armpit was like before and after the 6 laser hair removal sessions I had with Bare UK. Before the sessions, my armpits were dark, hairy and extremely red from shaving. I also had ingrown hairs, dark patches and other pore problems. It was really difficult to maintain, especially since my hair grew very fast. I had to shave everyday.
As you can see, the “After” results speak for themselves. My armpits have lightened considerably and I never have to shave. I occasionally shave around every 2 months to get rid of tiny baby hairs which could be lasered off with with repeated sessions. This can be booked through Bare UK’s website. These touch-up sessions are not always required and depends on whether you have hair growing out. Personally, I’ve not had to do any extra sessions apart from the 6 that I had.
Not only did the laser hair removal from Bare UK work wonderfully, but it really brought a lot of convenience to my life. I no longer have to worry about wearing tank tops and swimsuits because I used to have problems with very dark armpits. I no longer have to worry about my friends seeing dark patches under my arms. I no longer have to think about shaving at all. I honestly have to say that laser hair removal changed my life. It should be something every girl should consider, at one point in their lives. It is SO convenient!
Cherry Angioma Removal
Bare UK also does removal for cherry angiomas, which are red spots on the body that are harmless but visually unsightly. I have a lot of cherry angiomas and Julie was wonderful enough to try a patch test on one of my cherry angiomas. The results are pretty incredible. Here are the before and after for this procedure.
My experience with Julie at Bare UK was outstanding. Not only was she friendly, knowledgable and comforting, but her machinery, clinic and everything was extremely professional. Julie has so much experience with laser hair removal and cherry angioma removal. She informed me of all the steps in the process and was with me every step of the way. I felt safe and informed. Ultimately, the procedure for laser hair removal was pain-free and very effective, especially on my dark, thick hair.
As for the cherry angioma removal, I will definitely sign up for more sessions as I have so many of these red moles all over my body. Julie’s machine was pain-free and effective. I’d highly recommend this procedure for anyone wanting to remove those pesky red moles.
Thank you Bare UK for this wonderful experience! I would 10/10 recommend them as the best laser hair removal service in Oxford.
