Hi there…had my first laser treatment at my doctor’s office…Sciton Profile (Nd:Yag 1064) . I think she had it set at 3.5 It has a cooling feature. I’m having full bikini done (everything but a little in the front). I’m a Type 1 skin type with dark blonde/light brown hair.
She gave me a pulse and I didn’t feel anything so she adjusted. Gave me another and I hardly felt it. She upped it again and i felt it…some areas hurt more than others. It didn’t feel like a rubber band to me…more like several tiny little burning pin pricks. Not too bad and less than what I thought it would be. Took 'bout 10 minutes to get everywhere including the “rear” area. Yay!
I go back in 6 weeks. I asked her if 8 weeks was better but she said 4 weeks is recommended. I said…wouldn’t it be better to give the hair longer to grow back but she said it was better to go at 4 weeks when the hair is newly growing in rather than the later stage of growth.
Okay. She gave me a little mild cortisone cream to spread on the areas.
First treatment down! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
