I also am seriously considering American Laser in King of Prussia PA. The whole process is scary to me but they seem o.k. Any comments to the contrary?
They seem clean and organized and very busy. Dr’s don’t give the treatments clinic staff do, they have been trained (maybe 2 days training) they have a LOT of people come through (focused steady but not overly heavy sales pitch) and have offices all over the US, supposedly they are the biggest in the business so as nothing bad about them has been said here maybe they’re o.k?
They only use one type of machine and treatments are 6 weeks apart to allow proper hair regrowth… something about catching all the growth cycles.
The machine they use is Elos Aurora which also treats acne and skin problems
Supposedly the fact that they use radio frequency (provides heat) and laser makes their machines able to treat any color hair.
They give a package deal, 6 treatments w a 2 year guarantee, if any hair comes back after the 6 treatments you get free future treatments for up to 2 years.
I am 45, female, skin type 2 (self diagnoses!) and want hair removed from my upper lip, chin and jawline, some is fine blond, most is light brown and coarse (been shaving for years).
I investigated laser 4 years ago but it seemed too ‘new’ a treatment and risky. I tried electrolysis and it hurt too much, plus hair grew back. I read here that you need to ‘finish’ w electrolysis anyway, What’s that about?
I was given a quote of $1836.60 special deal ('cos its january?) for the package deal of 6 treatments. each treatment lasts about 30 mins. and the 6 treatments will be complete after about a year (1 treatment every 6 weeks) they sell super sunblock etc. and overall I am inclined to go for it but would really appreciate and pointers.
It is a serious investment for me, I live in the country, far from any other options and have to drive 3 hours one way to the clinic so it is a big commitment. I live in NE Pa and am equidistant from Philadelphia and NYC. Any comments anyone? [color:“yellow”] [/color]
