Cost $625 (Canadian). Back and Shoulders
Machine: Pitanga (sister to the Aurora - just doesn’t to laser resurfacing for Acne)
The pain wasn’t very bad at all. I had one of the highest settings and she said the readings were very good.
The clinic was referred to me by someone who had good results. I am of East Indian descent. The owner of the boutique is East Indian and lots of her family and friends have had there hair done with very good results.
She said it will take me 4-6 treaments. She is very optimistic, said she’s never had a client disappointed with the results. Said they waited a while to get this machine in because it uses RF and Light energy which is superior to other machines out there.
I do my next treatment in 6 weeks.
It hurt less than getting waxed. Most painful area was near the spinal cord, but not too bad really, and she said she had in on a VERY high setting as my skin tolerated it and I could take the pain. Took about 1.5 hours.
I’ll keep you all posted as the results come in. She said everyone responds differently. In her clinic she said it’s a 40-60 split of men vs women. Back and shoulders is the most popular, but she said when people get good results it gets addictive and they do other areas. She said my session looks very encouraging as I was able to use a very high setting that should allow me to have fewer sessions.
