    Why not AND if it helps in the other area of "fixing" the deviated septum and sinus problems I say go for it! It is what makes YOU happy! and your over all comfort!

    My hubby had the problems and when he got the work done he was ubber happy. no more sinus headaches.

    Gosh if getting a nose job will fix that I am all for it, I live with a blocked nose from sinus, my sense of smell is poor :-(

    But on the girly front, I have bought a new pair of dance shoes, very good support and actually to fit my feet, they are currently being made, and for a non comp dancer that is pretty sad ;-). I now have 6 pair of dance shoes and that will slowly surpass my regular shoes, having said that a friend of mine admitted the other day she has 170 pairs of shoes! and growing, now that is serious :)

    I've done the laser hair removal before and yes it does hurt, but the lady that did it gave me an ice pack to numb the area really well before she did anything and it helped a lot. Then I ended up getting a different lady and she wasn't as nice and I ended up getting some red burn spots afterwards. Needless to say I stopped going after a few treatments. It did help though, I'm not sure if you'll ever be able to get rid of all of the hair completely, but it reduces it nicely.

    Yep. Obviously, I've only felt one end of the spectrum. But comparing the amount of "power" they had to use between my SIL and me, and comparing notes about how much it hurt...yeah, it's worse for lighter hair.

    It hurt like hell. Despite the topical numbing cream. I'm tempted to say it didn't do squat to mitigate things, but I wasn't about to find out what it would feel like without it. But I could definitely use it (very fuzzy--stupid Italian genes ;) ), and it was worth it. Also, the pain didn't last very long; it hurt really bad during the lasering, but icy washcloths immediately after help a lot, and by the end of the day the pain was pretty much gone.

    You should get a half jack of bourbon to go with the ice. ;)

    Is it better to bleach it perhaps, rub lemmon on it, I am fortunate not to have lots of body hair, dont even shave my legs! (I thank my fathers genes, he has no hair on his legs either, rare for a man) Not into pain ;-)

    I love my Mediterranean genes, but rubbing lemon on my legs is simply not going to cut it! :nope:

    I've waxed and... um... Ok, I swore at my esthetician. :oops: Well... maybe not "at" her... but definitely in her general direction..... It was really nice for a few days (was going on vacation... yadda yadda...) but I feel like if I'm going to endure that kind of pain - even tho it was only for a short time - I want the results to last longer. I would (will) wax again, but it's not something I would do on a regular basis, particularly when I could be saving that money to put towards getting lasered. I think I would put up with a lot of pain to get the hair gone for good. KWIM?

    Gosh, I sound like a regular sasquatch. :lol:

    I really like getting my eyebrows waxed. It's so much faster and less painful than me tweezing them myself, plus they always come out really nice because a trained professional is doing it. Which reminds me...I'm very overdue, to the point where I'm doing a bit of remedial tweezing. I should have had them done before Embassy but I just never got around to it.

    I have my own wax pot at home and can do my own brows, legs, underarms, etc. And I have special blue wax for serious bikini waxing. The pain is manageable, imO...far better than tweezing, which I abhor...and worth it in lieu of razor stubble.

    Occasionally I'll have a pro do the brows or the bikini area when I'm not in the mood for the tedium (or self-infliction ;)) required. *grin*

    (Am so used to referring to "pro" on DF in just one regard, have to admit the sentence above makes me giggle...LoL)

    I'm a big fan of threading...yes, it prolongs the pain, but I think its more precise than waxing and gives my brows the most beautiful arch. In the past, however, I have frequented a professional waxer for help with, ahem, "down there", prior to bikini contests. Hurt so bad I thought I was gonna throw up :oops:

    IME nobody's better at giving torment-free bikini waxings than eastern european specialists...they know how to pat the skin after pulling to instantly calm the nerves, whereas I consistently find non-EEs neglecting that step...and giving a very different experience.

    I just sound excruciating....I remember years ago my mother-in-law at the time bought the epilady and she put it on my arm and I could have knuckled her, it was like a big spring that turned and ripped the hairs out the must have been designed by a man! (sorry boys)

    I wax my legs and my underarms, and occasionally my eyebrows, and the pain isn't so bad. You get used to it after a few times. Bikini wax though...that would hurt, I'm not planning on getting it done unless I absolutely have to.

    waxing - i hate. it not pulls your hairs but also your skin.

    i much prefer epilator.

    waxing - brazilian. and it doesn't hurt that much.

    but i am afraid to wax underarm because of the really sensitive sweating glands. :?
