I’m Italian and have Type III-IV skin with a very thick, dark beard. By noon I can get people asking me if I’ve even shaved that day and am thus looking to have it removed via laser.
I have had 2 consults so far and have another in the morning. One place uses a Lyra-i, which from what I’m reading here seems to be the best choice for my face. The other place uses a Q-switched Apogee Nd:YAG 1064. The Q-switched lasers don’t seem to be approved for permanent hair removal. We’ll see what the place tomorrow has.
So my question… I would ultimately like to have my whole face and neck done. Both places have warned me about patchiness and it sounds like the best option is to do my neck first and if I have good results with that to maybe try the rest of my face. I am admittedly a little nervious about looking like a dalmation on my face if I have that done. Has anyone here had their entire face done with good results? I’d love to hear any suggestions or encouragement or feelings on how likely I am to end up patchy if I do the rest of my face. Also, one place told me 3-4 weeks between treatments and the second place told me 8 weeks. What is the correct time in between?
