I had my lower legs done. I don’t have the paperwork in front of me so I may be a few dollars off, but I think it cost about $139 per treatment, 5 treatments, for a total of $695. I too went to Advanced Laser Clinics, and I too had the option of the 2 year guarantee. I decided to pass it up, because for that they charge nearly twice as much. I’m willing to pay for a few extra treatments if I need to, but I’d have to have more than 5 treatments over the next 2 years to make it worth it and that’s a risk I’m willing to take.
I’m a type II with VERY dark and course hair. I decided to have the treatment because it was so painful to shave my legs that I could only do it twice a week, and it grew back so fast that it pretty much meant that 5 out of the 7 days in a week I had stubbly, uncomfortable legs. I always had red bumps and ingrown hairs, it was miserable. If I come out of this with only 50% hair reduction and thinner, lighter hairs, it will be 100% worth every dime.
I was not “burned”, at least not in the way I think you mean. My legs were tender like a sunburn for a couple of days, and it took a couple of weeks for the redness to completely fade. They look perfectly fine now. From what I’ve heard this it pretty normal. The chance of being burned more severly is always present, I suppose. You just have to feel comfortable that the technician is knowledgable and careful.
