I have posted before about I new clinic I found which charges half the price I pay now for full body LHR. The place I go to now uses IPL (StarLux) and the new cheaper clinic uses a diode laser (MedioStar). Also the new clinic uses the gliding method, not compression. You are supposed to shave and then they apply a kind of gel and then glide the laser on your skinn.
I found this new clinic through a recommenadion from my Blend practitioner who is a nurse working at a plastic surgery clinic. She told me that several of their patients had been undergoing LHR at this new clinic and that they were very satisfied. But I do have my considerations about the gliding method and also on this forum I have read that it isn’t as good as the compression method.
But can you still get as good results if the practitioner knows how to work with the gliding method? I mean, if the skinn is shaved and the gel applied, you can still press down the laser while gliding it, can’t you?
One thing that I really wonder about is pulse width - can you adjust this parameter when the laser is just glided on the skinn? I mean, the laser “shoots” its light constantly with the gliding method, doesn’t it? Also I have brown skinn and I have read that pulse width is important when treating brown people.
