New member of HairTell and need some advices regarding my situation.
I am a male with pale skin with unwanted dark hair on my shoulders and back. I live in north of Norway and we have two clinics which offers hair removal. Both with IPL and extremly high price. $800 each session. They are out of the question! Talked with both and they also lack the experience and knowlegde about hair removal.
My two options are:
Buy a good home-use unit
I can travel south to our capital (oslo) and get it done for a fixed price - $4650. They do as many treatments needed, and they use Alexandrite laser. Very good feedback from other users and good knowlegde and experince with hair removal. This is the laser they are using - http://www.irradia.no/1rubin-laser.htm (this is NOT the link for the clinic, but the supplery of the laser)
I think I need 10 session. Since I have to travel by plane and train, the total price will be about $8500 for 10 sessions.
1.1 Is there a clinic in Europe which offers a cheaper treatment? The additional traveling cost isnt that much, so the total price might be reduced.
1.2 This laser has been the same for over 4-5 years. Any feedback on the laser?
- Buy a good home use unit
Due to the simple fact that the price on my hair removal is hefty, I am considering buying a machine myself or maybe with some friends. We can do our treatments and also treat others. I search ebay and found these:
LONG PULSE Nd:YAG LASER MACHINE HAIR REMOVAL k
Remember in Norway we have 220v/230v.
2.1 Any feedback on the machines?
2.2 Do you know of any others machines?
3.1 What would you do?
Thanks in advanced for all your answers!
