Dear RJC2001/ Lucie Desrochers (or anyone else with extensive laser knowlege - diode LightSheer or otherwise),
I wonder can you help me? I had a series of six treatments of hair removal with ‘Epilight’ IPL, carried out by two qualified nurses in a beauty/laser clinic, over a recommended period of a year and a half in Ireland. My arms, legs and underarms were treated. My skin colouring is pale, northern european and my hair colour is a mid to dark brown. After paying out over 7000 Euro ($7000) and six treatments later, it was obvious that Epilight IPL was not working on me. My arms now have the very same amount of hair on them as when I started and my legs, perhaps ten percent of the hair is gone. My underarms have had no hairloss. I had to threaten to bring the clinic to court and I only received 65% of my money back as a sign of ‘goodwill’. I was never told that there is a 16% failure rate for IPL and apparently I must fall into this category.
I want to go ahead with a different type of treatment. I have heard and read good things about the diode ‘LightSheer’. Please can you help me? Is this the one to go for? I’m frightened to throw good money after bad when I can ill afford the expense, pain and time. Please help me.
