Need Referral in Chicago Area Laser/Beard


#1

Hi there. Thanks for all the great reading on this site. My son who is 20 is fair skinned, and has very dark brown curly hair. His problem is pseudofollicultis in his neck and chin area, from the corkscrew effect on his follicles. I am looking for suggestions on the best Laser type for him, and perhaps a referral to an experienced provider. We live in Barrington IL, but he is at college in Dayton Ohio, so anyone with help in either locations is great. There are two providers in Barrington, IL which have the Coolglide Laser, and another that has sometype of Laser that starts with a V… can’t remember. I would be oh so grateful for some experienced suggestions for my son…Thanks Renee
