Here are some thoughts from one girl who had suffered through body hair
When Vidya Srinivasan was 7, girls would make her play a man in games of make-believe because of the downy hairs on her upper lip. “It really started messing up my self-esteem,” said Vidya, now 13. “I got to thinking that maybe there’d been a mistake and I was really born a boy.”
After treatment, she even commented that she felt as if she had won and managed to silence her bullies. We’re very proud of her! At Satori Laser, we believe that no one should be tormented by body hair, so stop by and let’s bring back your confidence!
