I am a male of indian origin in the UK who is planning on having laser hair removal. The area i’m looking to have treatment on are my arms.
I have arranged consultations with 2 clinics between 4-10 november,
First clinic has the gentlelase and gentleyag, and is attached to my local hospital. They are a chain with 17 different clinics with varying attachments to local hospitals.
Second clinic has the lightsheer and coolglide, it is a privately run clinic operating in london - UK.
Am I right in thinking that the gentleyag and coolglide will be the best lasers for me (probably IV or V on the fritzpatrick scale).
Also I have been looking for infomation on the power levels that should be used. Should both lasers be used at 30-35J for effective therapy?
Also what are the approximate maximum levels that are safe with these machines - I am worried about being undertreated and overtreated - so any help here would be great!!
Also any advice on other questions I should ask at the consultations would be really helpful!!
I will be updating this thread with photo’s before/after test patchs later this week. To see what everyone on this board thinks my chances of sucess will be like based on hair density coarseness etc. And I hope to update this thread (including photo’s) as I have laser hair removal to help anyone else out there.
Thanks for any advice!!
