Hi, I’m 20yrs old Korean male and very much interested in laser hair removal. I took the Fitz…something skin test (which I found online) and it told me I was skin type 4. But in my opinion, I have light beige skin. The places I want to get LHR are legs (very coarse black hair and very pale legs, which haven’t seen the sun in six years), arms (not very coarse, a bit fine, but long, and my skin is very slightly tanned because I waxed it and wanted to hide the stubbles), and the front upper body (coarse hair near the belly, fine hairs near nipples and down the middle, the skin is also very slightly tanned).
I have two places in mind.
One is a cosmetic clinic which does liposuction, breast augmentation,…all those stuff and laser hair removal. They use Lyra ND Yag laser. What I like about that place is that they’re not expensive. One session would cost around $1000 CAD roughly.
Another place is a laser, vein, cosmetic place. They use Gentlelase plus. They are a bit more costly. One session would roughly cost $1300 CAD.
I guess the price might be different because of the location. The first one is in the suburbs and the second one is in downtown.
I’ve read somewhere in the post that ND: Yag is the best for dark skinned. I’m not sure if I’m dark skinned, but if it’s good for dark skinned people, then it must work for a lighter skin equally, if not better, right?
Also, the hairs on my legs are coarse, but the hairs on my arms and chest are rather fine. Which laser is most efficient for fine hairs?
