I had my first laser hair removal using the lightsheer diode on my full legs and bikini area 3.5 weeks ago. My hair is mostly coarse and thick, except on my thighs which is slightly finer, but they are all dark hairs. I have light skin.
I would say that only 75% of the hairs shed. I was expecting more of my hair to shed and was very disappointed. I am a good canditate for laser hair removal and I believe my LHR tech did not do a good job and skipped over many areas. So I called her and told her that I’d like to redo the areas that didnt shed and she said its normal to miss some areas because as she puts it, “the legs and bikini areas are extensive, so its normal for some hairs to be missed.”
This may be true, but I still think she could have done a better job, there is seriously a lot of patches and individual hairs all over she missed. And I paid good money for this. I think a responsible tech would try to cover the entire area.
But she did allow me to come in today, after three and a half weeks and do a touch up, but only over some patches. So today she redid some of those patches, but she refused to remove all the hair that didnt shed because she tells me “its normal that not all the hairs will be shed in such a large area” and she goes over only some. Some of those hairs that she went over have already fallen out, and its only a few hours later. Does this mean they were covered the first time around but needed a little “push”?
She also refuses to go higher than 30 joules on the laser machine.
She also wants me to come back June 9th for my next appointment, which will be six weeks from the first one I had. However, I think it should be later since I had a touch up today and those need six weeks. It will be too early to do those hairs.
I’m starting to think shes not qualified and I should find someone else. BTW, I’m in NYC.
What do you all think??
