well i just got back with a treatment done with a gentleyag machine. the lady said she wanted to use the gentleLASE but that machine was not at the clinic today. i am afraid i was under treated. i have had 3 treatments with lightsheer and each time had major redness and swelling after treatment for 2 days or so. this time i had redness on upper lip for only 20 minutes! (i have full face treated.) it didn’t hurt very much, all i could feel was the cold blast hitting my face. she said she used 18mm spot and only 20J! isn’t 20 waaaay to low? i honestly look like nothing was done and it’s only been 3 hours since treatment? hellllp i hope i didn’t pay $320 for nothing! granted i told her i was nervous about being burned but she should have put the settings at something that would be effective! i don’t have a lot of money to do this and i don’t do it for fun… i am a female and am tired of shaving… i HAVE to do this!
oh and i am caucasian, very light skin but sensitive… so i think i’m a fitzpatrick II or III. and i was treated with lightsheer at 25J and 23J the last few times.
does anyone know good places in michigan with diode or alex. lasers? i’m having a hard time finding a place i’m comfortable with, there are too many!
