I just got started looking into laser hair removal for my face and have become overwhelmed with all the different methods. I have light to “tanned” skin and my facial hair is dark and coarse on my chin and slightly lighter and thinner under my lip. So far I have looked into 3 different places that use the following Lasers:
San Francisco Plastic Surgery & Laser Center run by Usha Anne Rajagopal, MD and they use 3 different lasers depending on skin type – LIGHTSHEER DIODE LASER made by Lumens Corporation – used to treat patients with light to medium tone or Asian skin. LASERSCOPE LYRA and ALEXANDRITE LASER by Cynosure.
A private practice Nurse who came by referral who uses the StarLux by Palomar.
Dermatologist Vic Narurkar, MD of Laser and Cosmetic Dermatology in SF who uses on of Palomar Pulsed Light systems.
Any comments on the above lasers or practitioners would be helpful. Also, if anyone has a referral for laser hair removal in San Francisco or the Bay Area in general, that would also be great.
Thanks in advance!!
