Ok… So after a long long time I finally the courage to get my first treatment.
I have dark black hair on really white skin. Great set for laser hair removal from what I’ve read. I was having my back, neck, and shoulders treated.
Now here’s where I feel like a wimp. The lady used a GentleLase thingy and zapped me with 21j. I cant explain how painfull it was for me. I was ok in the beginning, but I only lasted until a little less then half my back was treated and I had to call it quits. I just couldnt take it any more. The lady was nice, and said she’d go lower if I wanted her too, but she was afraid I’d be wasting my money because she wouldnt expect good results. I understand this, but after reading alot I’m seeing that maybe 21j is really low as it is.
The reason I picked this place was 2 part. 1, I had some good referals from people who said she was great. This was my main reason. A good referal is key. Second, she made me feel very comfy.
So… Am I just a wimp? lol We decided that because I couldnt take it so much that we’d break up the treatment into smaller areas at a time. This is good for the pain thing, but now I’m getting concerned. Even if I manage to get all the treatments done, am I to expect poor results with only 21j?
Just one last note… they got some nerve putting the word gentle on that torture device! The inquisition coulda made good use of that thing!
