Till today (started in July 2010) I have had 3 session on my chest and abs with the GentleYAG laser (18mm/28J). The hairs are meanwhile, relatively speaking, less coarse.
Last week I decided to give a try to the Alexandrite laser and today I had a test session with the GentleMAX (Alexandrite - 18mm/16J). The doctor said that my skin was too dark to handle more than 16J.
It has been a few hours now and my skin looks perfectly normal. Just a bit redness but this should be okay I guess.
Now my question is; with which laser should I continue hereafter? Which one would be more effective? GentleYAG with 18mm/28J or GentleMAX with Alexandrite 18mm/16J? Thanks for all feedbacks!
