First off just want to say what a great resource this website is. Countless people on here offering really good advice and I’ve been reading around the forums for some time now trying to make up my mind on laser hair removal.
I have an excessively hairy back (see pic!) and it continues onto my shoulders, upper arms and chest/belly area. The hair is long and pretty coarse too so good for LHR, but wondering about my skin tone? Am I too dark for treatment to work effectively?
The hair on my back causes real confidence issues - esspecially during the summer. I’ve tried waxing before but my back just breaks out in ‘bacne’ for a good 3/4 weeks afterwards and isn’t a viable long-term solution.
I’m based in london and looking for clinics which cater for indian skin. I’ve so far come across ‘viva medical clinic’ and ‘harley laser specialists’. Anybody have any experiences with them?
Really sorry if my post is rambling now. Just want to be totally sure before I commit.
…More than happy to post a closer picture if required. The hair in the foreground gives you some idea as to the density on my shoulders.
