Hi Sbeth I was just coming on the site to give an update. I have had one full session completed on my face at the Midwest Dermatologic Clinic. I was treated by a very experienced and careful technician under the supervision of Dr. Kovak. I was skeptical after my first treatment with the Lightsheer(Diode Laser) at only 12 joules, which seemed a bit low. I had no burning or redness afterwards, I am assuming that may change when we get more aggressive.
It took a couple of weeks before I noticed anything substantial happening. I let my facial hair grow out for about 2 days just recently and could see the patches that were affected, SMOOOOOTH! granted, some spots were missed on the first round.
I have fair skin and dark hair, so the Lightsheer seems to be performing pretty well for me(so far) The clinic does operate a number of different types of lasers so they are able to meet the needs of a varying clientele, a very encompassing approach I thought.
My only complaint so far, the staff is cordial but not as “formal” as I would like to see. If you go for consultation, ask a lot of questions, air any concerns, and let them know you’ve done some research. The office is beautifully decorated, clean, and I feel that the technician and staff genuinley have my best interest in mind.
The consultation is 75.00 which includes a test patch. I pay 250.00 per session for my face, and 200.00 for the neck. The clinic also performs a number of other cosmetic procedures in addition to laser hair removal.
