I’ve had a few consult appointments and test spots by a few different lasers. The first was with a long pulsed q-switched yag, and I swear the hair is thicker in that area. Next I had 4 spots done with a light sheer and finally with a Lyra-i yag.
Here is my quandry. I’ve gathered that the lyra is the better laser for my type III-IV skin. It has less post treatment reddness and I guess is less painful. My concern though is that the beam tip is 4mm circle in size which seems like it would translate into a lot more zaps and increased likelyhood for missing spots.
The light sheer is a about 1/2 inch square. It seems like that would be fewer zaps of the laser and less likelyhood of missing spots.
Having had treatments with both, I think the hair has definately come out with the lightsheer. I still need to give the Lyra a little more time. It just makes me a little nervous with the lyra being such a small area.
