Hi, I hope it’s ok that I come in here and ask dumb questions…
I bought 6 months worth of laser treatments on one of those group buying sites. I know it probably wasn’t the best idea, but I thought I would kick off with one place and then move to another to finish it off.
I am treating my bikini and underarms. I am a Fitzpatrick type III
I am also on antidepressants, so she said she would use a low setting on me. I was really apprehensive about getting laser done, so I felt like that was fine with me.
But now I am home and reading more on the internet I realise that she definitely went too low for me. It barely hurt (except a couple of instances, but mostly it was just a bit uncomfortable) and I have no redness to my skin (3.5 hours later).
I tried to find out what settings she used, but she wasn’t forthcoming with information. It is a Diode LightSheer machine.
Do you think I should bother completing my treatments, or should I just go back in next time requesting higher settings?
They suggest coming in every five weeks, which I know is not what is recommended in the FAQ
