Results of using the Silk'n Infinity

08:00

For a good while now I've been using the Silk'n Infinity laser hair removal device as a way to permanently remove body hair. In my first post I explained how the device works. Just to recape a little The typical treatment plan is as follows:
Treatments 1-4  plan 2 weeks apart 
Treatments 5-7  plan 4 weeks apart
Treatments  8 + treat as needed.

I also shared an update on how the device works and what it feels like to use. I also shared that I was definitely noticing a difference after the 4th use.


Excess body hair and also the fact my body hair grows quicker due to having PCOS has always made me feel self conscious and so sharing the photos in this post is already making me cringe. Luckily though I've had good results with the Silk'n Infinity as you will see.

Before I go into the results I first of all want to recape on how the Silk'n Infinity actually works.

Silk'n build on the world-renowned HPL technology with Galvanic Energy and Optical Energy. These energies combine to give you a more efficient hair removal solution. Working together with 5 different energy levels, they open the skin pores and allow the light to reach the hair follicles without pain, irritation or ingrown hairs.


The results:

I'll start with underarm hair. I tend to shave my under arms alot more often than my legs usually every few days. For the purpose of my review I chose to leave shaving for  a week. 

The first photo shows the hair growth over a week befre I started using the Silk'n Infinity. In the second photo I left shaving my underarms for a week to show you the difference in growth. This was taken just before I shaved and done my 6th treatment. 



Onto my legs I left shaving my legs for 2 weeks and the first photo shows how much hair my legs had prior to shaving and using the Silk'n Infinity. The second photo again is after 2 weeks of not shaving and taken just before I shaved and did my 6th treatment. 

As you can see the hair growth has certainly slowed down. As I've said I usually shave my under arms every few days but I can now get away with leaving a few more days.

As for shaving my legs I use to shave once a week and now instead I'm shaving every two weeks.  

The typical full hair growth cycle may take 18 to 24 months. Because of this I'm going to definitely keep continuing using the Silk'n Infinity. It's 4 weeks until I do the 7th treatment and after that further treatments are as and when needed.
Advice:
- Make sure you read the instructions and use on shaved, clean and dry skin.

- Avoid any areas that have cuts, moles, Mark's or tattoos

- If it's your first time having laser treatment definitely start with the lowest intensity and build up to what is comfortable.

- Stick to the advised treatment plan for beat results.

Autism

I wont Grieve for my autistic son & Never Will

16:19

Earlier this year after quite a wait, tests and assessments Blake got an autistic diagnosis.
We were not surprised at all and had thought he was autistic and would have been more surprised if he wasn't.



Enter the world of groups and pages on Facebook as a way of getting advice surrounding autisim and one thing that struck me is that alot of people have asked if we have grieved? Grieved for what? It turns out some of these people believe that once you have an autistic diagnosis you can grieve. I apparently should be grieving for the child he could've been and grieve for the life we had dreamed for him.



I wont be grieving because of my son being autistic and never will. Blake is Blake he is perfect how he is. What would bring me to my knees would be a life without him in it. Blake has always been who he is and to us a diagnosis doesn't change anything for us apart being able to get the help and support he needs in place.



Blake didn't suddenly change overnight because we got a diagnosis. He is still a boy who loves trains, pj masks and chocolate chip cookies. He still is a fussy eater and very strong willed and we get hard days some which make me grab the wine bottle but no I wont be grieving. 


Why Engineered Wooden Flooring is a great option for your home

*In collaboration with Flooring365


When Stuart and I brought our home earlier this year, we were lucky that we don't have to deal with flooring in the main areas of our house. 

We do have an attic room which we eventually plan to do up. One of the big jobs up there though is the flooring as it needs fixing up. The flooring will definitely be our number one job before we do any decorating. I've been looking through different flooring options and have come across engineered wood flooring 



What is engineered wood flooring?
Engineered wood flooring is made up of a top layer made up of solid wood and an engineered base made out of layers of plywood. Sometimes it's available with a click and lock installation for easy installation.

Where can I install it?
Most areas of the home. Living rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms are the ideal places. As it needs a bit if care and maintenance it's recommended not to be used in high traffic areas such as the hall way. Other areas advised not to use are in areas where there is alot of humidity. Stairs are also areas that you may want to avoid due to being tricky to lay. These are just recommendations though and it's your choice where in the home you want to install it. 



Why engineered wood flooring?
It's a cheaper option for those considering solid wood flooring. It's also durable as solid wood, sometimes more so.

We feel that engineered wood flooring is the best option for the attic room with it being at the top of the house. It would definitely work better for us cost wise but also opt for it over laminate like the majority of the house due to it being a much thicker material even though costs more. 

What type of flooring do you have in your home?
