Actually, I am just a Hair off 21 (hehe, first one to make that joke huh?). I am looking to get something done to reduce the amount of hair on my legs. I am not really looking for 100% elimination. Many some elimiination and the rest reduction in hair size/lightening of the hair.
Electrolysis seems kinda scary and not really what I am looking for. Laser on the other hand seems like it is pretty hit or miss, and it isn’t like you are spending just a few bucks here. Here is my expirence with lasers: I went to a clinic about a year and a half back called Hair today gone tomarrow in IL. I got a test site done and a quote. The test site looked like it had less hair for awhile, but now it looks normal again (as I was informed it would). They quoted me 1,000 per session or a pkg. of 4 for 3,780. That struck me as steep. Also, the treatments are spaced 4-12 weeks apart (I understand why) ,but “touch ups” only lasted (for free) for 1 year after the first treatment. Meaning, before I figure out if I need a matience procedure, it isn’t free anymore. I can’t remember the laser type for the life of me.
I have pretty light skin (I tan before I burn tho) and dark/pretty thick hair on my legs. My question to whomever is 3 fold:
- What kind of laser would you guys recommend
- What kind of price should I expect (IE was the other place ripping me off)
- Can anyone recommend a place in the Chicago land area, to be more specific, the area around Hinsadale/Westmont/OakBrook/SW burbs. If you know where that is.
BTW. I saw one of the mods lived in chicago. If he/she could recommend a good spot/give advice I’d be more than happy to donate to your kittens!
