I have light skin (type 2) and dark, course hair. I’ve now had 3 consultations (and test patches) with 3 different lasers, the LightSheer diode, the Alexandrite, and the Aurora. I’m trying to figure out now how do I choose which one to go with?
The diode seemed to eliminate the hair immediately, as did the Alexandrite, but the latter was more painful (and more expensive), nor did they offer any guarantee, so I think that is out.
Now it’s between the LightSheer and the Aurora.
The Aurora did not show immediate results, but that was just earlier today, and I know that results aren’t always so quick. The lady told me it can sometimes take up to 3 treatments to really start to see the improvement, but that all her clients have really liked it. I can’t seem to find out much about the machine itself. There’s no info about it on the webpage. The lady told me it isn’t a diode or an alexandrite or any of the others… so what is it? I also read here that it’s great for fine hair and dark skin, but what about the opposite? Is it just as effective? I have a lot of questions about this particular method, but I have to say the office and the lady who would use it are the most impressive out of the other 2 places. I think I would feel the most comfortable with her doing it than anywhere else, but I’m just not sure about that particular machine being the right one for me.
The diode was used on Tuesday and I’ve not seen one hair on that spot, so I KNOW it works, but as nice and I believe experienced as the girl was, that location seemed kind of gimmicky and bend-over-backwards to get my business. The price was by far the best, but I’m not the kind of person to let that effect my decision.
I’m just kinda torn. It’s such a huge decision and I know I have to think long and hard before I make up my mind. I got slightly different answers from each place, but they all had years of experience and training. Any input from you guys would be helpful in making my final decision.
