Hey, y’all! I’m so happy to have found this forum!
I’m a 26-year-old male living in Miami undergoing laser hair treatments on my face (twenty-one treatments and counting!). I have a ‘lifetime guarantee’ so it’s helped alleviate some of the insecurities I once had, but treatments have proved rather subpar. Compared to when I first started, my face is now - for the most part - smooth and almost hair-free, except, that is, for the chin area. The chin area is thick, coarse and the hairs are all too close to each other! Every treatment is unsuccessful at zapping away the patchiness in that area (it’s the sides of the chin, The coarseness and thickness will simply not go away). I have two theories on why after twenty-something treatments, nothing zaps those hairs away:
The laser facility will not go on high settings on me because my face is always tanned (I’m olive-skinned, Latin) and the fact that I do treatments every four weeks.
The laser is a Candela, from industry-standards, I hear this is good, but who knows if there’s a superior laser on my skin type: olive-skinned; tan easily.
Anyway, I’ve read about seeing an Electroylsis, but wanted to know if it’s worth it considering the thousands I’ve already spent on LHR? It’s just the chin area that I need to treat. Bummer because this year coming up I wanted to do my arms but it looks like I’ll have to spend it on my chin via electrology.
Thanks in advance!
