No one can tell you what YOUR final result will be. This is a gamble and you are putting yourself at risk for laser hair stimulation for these areas. An alexandrite is a great laser and if you didn’t see results with this, then I’m doubtful about any other laser. You will have to just go ahead and get treated with this new laser and see what happens FOR YOUR HAIR PROBLEM, that is, if you want to take a risk.
I just watched the show on NBC called, THE DR’s. A young Italian woman has had a hair problem on her back her whole life. The segment was less than truthful about laser hair reduction. She was treated by a physician with a GentleYAG, a very good laser indeed. She said it didn’t hurt much. They showed a before and after picture. They deceived the good audience by not telling everyone that her back had to be shaved prior to laser, so when one saw the after picture, she was totally hair-free. Of course it looked like a miracle had happened in about 45 minutes because she was shaved! The “good” doctor said she will need a couple more treatments, 6-8 weeks apart. DO you think, I mean, DO YOU REALLY THINK, that they will bring this young lady back in about 18 months and show us her results? What will she say about her experience in 18 months? I’m betting they won’t. Instead, we are left with the image of a hairy back and then a shaved back! How is the consumer supposed to know they were being taken? This show has made mistakes before about laser hair reduction. What else might they be deceiving the public about? I don’t take anything they say so seriously after seeing this.
Laser’s for hair reduction have probably reached their maximum returns. Anything new is not that exciting unless someone has discovered how to get fine hair of any color ot thick hair of any color.
Lawrence, please go forward and do your neighbors a favor by reporting back here about your results in about a year or two.
