Ok I went for my consultation today at Lucy Peters and I have some speculation. First of all they have assigned to me what seemed to be the youngest technician there. She’s in her mid twenty’s while all the other technicians looked like middle age women. My guess is that the young lady assigned to me is assigned to all there male patients because she is extremely attractive. Well anyway I have some speculation about the things I was told at my consultation:
-They said it would take 3 years to complete my back because of the cycle of hair growth. I find this reasonable being that the back is a large area but can anyone shed some light on this?
-They said it would take 8 hours of treatment to “strip” my back of all hairs in the active stage. Now this I find a bit too much for my paticular case, this is where I think they are trying to get me for my money. Now I asked her how many active hairs could she treat in a one hour session and she said it takes about a second to treat one hair. Now that would mean 60 hairs in a minute, 3600 hairs in one hour. I will give her the benefit of the doubt and round that number down to 3000. I am pretty sure that there is nowhere near 3000 active hairs on my back, so why would it take 8 hours to get rid of all the active hairs? I am just basing this on their claim to permanently remove active hairs after treating them once. And on top of that she said she could give me one 8 hour treatment to get it over with (I thought that was ridiculous). Instead I booked 2 one hour sessions, and 3 two hour sessions. Now after this initial 8 hour treatment, they told me I would need an additional 30 hours (at the most) over the next 3 years to permanently remove all hair from my back,but they kept telling me that it might not even be that much being that my back hair is so sparse.
I’ll come back with more details later because I have to go now, If you have any questions about my consultation feel free to ask.
