I’m an indian and according to the doctor i met today said that my skin type is between 3-4. I have a light skin with dark black coarse hair. i’m going to have a laser hair removal treatment for my arms.
I have just been to two clinics today. The first clinic has the Medilux(Palomar). I asked the doctor what kind of results i would see after my first treatment? Would i be able to see some reduction in my hair or perhaps much finer hairs, he said NO, nothing like that will happen!!! Then i said what’s the point in having the treatement he just kept quite. He was keep saying that their mahine works differently than the laser. I said that i have done some research and what i found is even if i do only one treatment with a laser i should see some difference maybe less and much finer hair. The he replied well if you want to see that kind of results with your first treatment i would refer you to another doctor who has the Diode Lightsheer laser and that i could see much better results .
So i went to the see the other doctor who has the Diode Lightsheer laser and he was very confident that the machine he is using is for permanent hair reduction and that i will have much greater hair reduction and finer hair even with one treatement and he said that i would need atleast 4-5 treatments. I took along with me a form printed off the internet with some questions regarding the hair romoval and aksed him to sign it but he wouldn’t . He said he cannot guarantee permanent hair removal but he can guarantee permanent hair reduction. He was really worried about my skin tone will change after the treatment, he said he has seen cases where the skin colour changes in the treated area comparing to none treated area and it can last quite long. So he has to be really careful.It made me really scared. He also said that i will get a patchy regrowth after my first and second treatments so i need to do atleast 3-4 treatmets to get even regrowth. He said he would be doing the treatments himself and that he doesn’t trust the nurse to do it. He sounded quite promising but the when i asked about the price for my both arms he said US$1,000 for one treatment. He said he can reduce the price for second treatment because the hair for the second treatment will be reduced. This is really expensive comparing to what i see on these forums, it is not even full arm.
I had to pay US$200 for the consultation fee for both the doctors, the first one was kind of wasted.
I still have one more place to go, they use Coolglide, let you know how that one turns out.
Is it true that i will get patchy regrowth after the first treatment? i have seen pictures on the internet even after the first treatment they have really fine and even regrowth.
Are there different kinds of Lighsheer and Coolglide lasers if they are then which ones i should be looking for?
Suppose i have only one treatment and i have less and finer hair and i’m satisfied will this less and finer hair remain the same for ever or will they increase and grow thicker?
I know its a long post but just let you guys know my experience.
