I recently had a test patch done at a laser clinic in Toronto.
[b]I am a skin type V (5), with coarse black hair. Pictures of my skin can be found in this album.
The laser used was an Nd:YAG, specifically the Apogee Elite.
[b]The settings used…
Spot Size: 15MM
Fluence: 20 joules/cm2
Pulse Width: 40ms
Rep Rate (Not sure what this is?) : 1.5hz [/b]
It has been a little over 2 weeks since the test patch, and have experienced 95% shedding, and no side effects… The 3 week mark will be on Jan.10th.
Should I try more test patches at higher settings to test what my skin can handle, or should I just return to this clinic and get started with the treatments?
Highly appreciate any help, THANKS:)
