hi everyone. it feels weird to be in this side of the woods. hehe. i am a frequent electrolysis section poster and i am been seriously thinking about laser for my underarms. i am currently doing my face and chest bone with electrolosis and resutls are great. only problem is, it takes long and the trips are every week.
now, my problem is my underarms (the pits). i got black hair there and somewhat white/pale skin. i have serious ingrown hair issues that result in these very painful pimple bumb like things. They seem to lay dormint in my skin until they are irritated with waxing or shaving. (so very freqently). and becasue of that i have scars, especially along the upper border of my arm pits. the scars are darker in colour from the rest of the arm pits and i am woried that laser will damage this area. Since it targets dark coloured pigmentation (i.e. hair) that it will also zap the scars (since they are also dark in colour) and cause me to burn or skin damage.
i would really appreciate your knowledge in this matter. Also, i am worried about pain as i heard armpits hurt the most. i know what electrolosis feels like and i can certainly bare it. i never think about pain with electrolosis. not sure if laser will be the same.
thanks so much for your input.
