I’m 26, from Iran (Middle Eastern). I’m neither white, nor brown. I guess as the FAQ says, I’m Mediterranean, but maybe just sliiiiightly fairer. As for burning, sometimes I burn but it’s usually due to a loooot of direct sun in the middle of summer without any sunscreen, and even then it’s usually around the shoulder area/back. So I guess I don’t burn easily.
I think I fall somewhere in between Type III and IV, but you be the judge:
And this is me with a sliiiiiiiiiiight tan (I’m talking about an insignificant amount): http://photos-e.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-sf2p/v123/119/114/94805722/n94805722_32809726_7250.jpg
Area to be Lasered/elctroly…sized?!
The area above my beard line and 1-inch below my eyes. I get some random hair here. A few are more coarse (half-way between my coarse like my beard and very fine hair), some are somewhat fine, and some are really really really fine. It’s not a lot of hair, but it’s annoying since I remove them with a tweezer and sometimes I get ingrown hairs.
Someone suggested that for such a small area and fine hair, I shouldn’t do laser. But the area isn’t that small; technically, the surface area on each side is equivalent to the chin area, me thinks. And the hairs that I care about are the ones which are a bit more coarse (again, not as coarse as my beard), which if I had to estimate, number to around 30-40 hairs. The really fine ones, I don’t give a dang about.
