I have been paying attention to laser hair removal advertisements for the last several years. I suffer the destiny of being cursed with hair on my back, shoulders, arms…basically everywhere. I just graduated college, and the gift to myself is to start this process. Electrolysis was too slow for me…I like seeing results fast.
I have been online for the past few days doing some research. I found a lot of info at Dr. Jay’s web site, based out of New York. I initially went to a facility in Beverly Hills and had my consultation. They were very eager to work with me. They use a diode laser. But after reading more, it seems as though the light-based treatments yield better results, but are simultaneously more expensive.
So, to get the first treatment on my back, shoulders, and upper arms would be $468, for two hours. The facility allows you to pay for the first three treatments up front, and then you are given the 4th and 5th treatments free. If you require more treatments after that, they give you the option of buying the same package all over again for a further reduced rate.
So, with all that…here are some questions:
Do you know if the diode laser is the way to go when financially uncertain? Or is the light pulse treatment offer the most guarantee?
Does the package deal quoted to me sound reasonable for the diode laser? It amounts to $1600 for 5 treatments.
Are there any suggestions on places to go to in the Los Angeles area…price vs. reputation.
Thank you very much for any help or guidance you can provide me. I am going to Hawaii for the first time in 3 weeks, and I wanted to get my first treatment prior to that excursion. It would be nice to be COMPLETELY relaxed on the beach for once.
