Today I went to Advanced Skin Fitness. It was actually located in a smaller, almost residential area and shared a building with some sort of church (!) and what looked like an art studio. Anyway, I went inside and had a consult with the laser tech (no doctors here.) He was very nice, and the prices are good. However, he did say a few things that concerned me. When I asked about burning, I was told “I couldn’t burn you if I tried,” (I bet he could so) and was also told that, because I was fair, he could “crank the power up really high.” They use the Candela GentleLase, which I know is supposed to be the best.
I need to decide where to go! I actually liked Ideal Image best, but they are too expensive. Smooth Solutions wasn’t nearly as upscale, but the prices can’t be beat and a nurse is at least always present and calibrates the machines. They use the Apogee Alexandrite, which I don’t know anything about (is this a good system? Anybody?) I am strongly leaning towards going to Smooth Solutions. I can treat my chest, stomach, AND underarms for less than one session would run my at Ideal Image. I don’t want to go for the cheapest thing around, but I have heard positive reports about them.
