Laser Not For Me


#1

I tried laser(sorry not sure what type), and had 5 treatments on upper lip, 4 on each underarms, bikini, and lower leg. I saw results for the first 4 months, but now 1 year later, there really is no difference. I think to spend over $1000 for no visable lasting results is not worth it. Just wanted to add my $0.02 to the forum!
I’ve got very dark hair and very pale skin, so should have been an ideal candidate. Moving on to electrolysis!

That kind of money could have bought 5,000 to 10,000 hairs PERMANENTLY removed via electrolysis. Had you had someone with the speed of a Fino Gior, you could have even lost up to 30,000 hairs for that kind of money. Such a shame.

The website yb refers to appears to be an advertisemnt of Electrology. I noticed the study they use to discredit Laser was done in 1996, when they used to pour a carbon based liquid all over your skin to somehow conduct the Laser. I actually remember having this done to me, and Laser hair removal was in it’s absolute infancy back then. I would look for more recent studies to learn about Laser, say something from this century!

Having done Electrolysis for 20 years and for the past 3 years Laser I would just like to tell you ,either one will work.You do however need a good person for Electrolysis or Laser.I see a lot of Poeple asking how much treatments cost.
Not often do I see a anybody trying to find out what training/knowlege the elctrogist or the lasertechnican should have.
