This is my first post - after much reading I have decided to post about my experiences. I have suffered from dark facial hair my whole life, but have always threaded and bleached. Recently my side burns and chin have really bothered me. Even though I was bleaching, the blonde hair on my tan skin made me insecure. I decided to finally try laser. I went to a clinic here in Dubai called Kaya Skin Clinic and had 6 sessions (every 6 weeks) on my lower face which included complete chin, underneath my chin and sideburns. They used the ND.yag laser for me. After the first 3 sessions, I was very happy and noticed a huge difference. During the last 3 sessions I noticed more hair was growing in especially under my chin. These hairs were longer and thicker, and all of a sudden I started getting bad acne as well in the same areas that i never had before! I did see a tiny reduction in some areas, maybe 15-20%. By the 6th session - the doctor on hand said go check your hormones. I went to go get a blood test and everything was normal. He then came back to me and said “oh maybe this laser didn’t suit you.” I was quite angry, he said there was nothing we could do and I left. A friend recommended me to try Sopranos as she had really good results. So yesterday I went for one session. The lady seemed to oversell it and I explained to her how I didn’t want to be dissappointed again. She said trust me this will work on you. So I had her do one session. It wasn’t as painless as everyone as said. Now I am paranoid this won’t work either and I will have to go back to threading and bleaching. Can anyone share some insight?
