I am getting laser hair removal done on my full legs soon (full thighs and lower legs). The place I’m going to will be using the Cutera YAG on me. I have coarse, thick and black hair all over my legs. And, I would say my skin type is about a IV. My question is what would be an appropriate setting. It seems like one of the reasons for poor results is due to the professional using low settings. So, what would you recommend?
I live in the Midwest and there are quite a few big laser companies next to me. However, I decided to go to a less popular place with good reviews. They charge per treatment (which is good because I didn’t want to pay for a package). And, after some back and forth talking, they’re asking for $320 per treatment… which I think is a good deal because all of the other places I’ve spoken with want +$500.
I had electrolysis done on my upper lip earlier this year. The hairs that were treated have not grown back - some of the hairs did have to be treated more than once. However, I stopped going because it exceeded my budget at that particular time. So, I still have hair on my upper lip that wasn’t treated. But, it’s finer hair. (I remove it by threading). My question is what are your thoughts about getting laser hair removal on my upper lip? I’ve read that it can possibly cause more hair growth.
Sorry for the long post. I’m new to this forum so hopefully this is okay.
