Previously on this forum I have been adviced to try lightsheer [lagirl - I am amazed at your committment: I wish I had some of it <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> – I mean it in positive sense.] based on my skin type and other things. I consulted a laser clinic here amd they also think lightsheer is best for me. [Type III-IV, Fine Hair : I can usually feel and see few black spots after 3rd or 4th day of shaving]
I am planning to go for my lower legs and lower arms as they are coarser. I have my test patch appointment on Wed., May-17, 06.
I have few questions: -
- What are settings that I should start with or test?
- How many days before I should shave and go?
- What should be the schedule for lower arms and legs? [4/6/8 weeks]
- How many treatments should I commit to? OR is pay-as-you-go option a better one?
- The laser clinic does offer package prices, but I am not 100% sure if things will work for me? Suggest options!
As we have known that laser does not work on fine hair, the practitioner told me that I also have very soft skin, so the hair are pretty coarse for my skin. She thinks i should try my lower arms and legs, as she is sure laser will work on those areas. She agreed to give me test patches, and I am kind of convinced that she might be right.
Also, is there anything that works on peach fuzz? I have very fine hair on my back that I would like gone, and I have no patience/time/committment for elctrolysis of that sort. At the moment I shave them once a week.
If anyone is wondering if I did any more Gentlelase treatments, which is what I started and took one treatment — NOPE, I did not! I did not get any hair from that one treatment for about 8 weeks, and now most of them are back … I think it was Dec-05/Jan-06 when I did that. I did do 6 hours of electrolysis on the sides of my face and my electrologist says - it is looking good.
