I really appreciate any help and advice.
Today I went to a clinic to do all the stuff prior to starting laser treatment on face area (to see if I was a good candidate, do a test patch, see the costs etc…)
I had read a lot on the internet on laser (pros AND cons) and its efficacy.
However the consultant told me that doing it always has a 20% risk of ‘triggering’ hair growth in neighbouring follicles which do not have the hair problem. Thus making me worse than prior to treatment. He said my problem was not serious enough to justify taking the risk - though if I insisted he would do it just the same.
Now I had never heard of this anywhere! It’s true I would be needing full face treatment but the hairs are quite sparse due to previous electrolysis.
Also, he told me it is not true that only some 6 sessions would be needed and that’s just marketing hype. Some people have over 70 sessions, he said.
Now I’m just so down and don’t know what to do.
I did the test patches.
He told me full face treatment would be around USD 130, so 6 sessions would be USD 780.
I can’t understand why the doc was so discouraging… Maybe he’s afraid of lawsuits or maybe he’s so busy he’s not eager to get new clients?
And I had been all hyped up especially after having read that I was an ‘ideal’ candidate with a fair skin and dark brown hair… <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />
