GentleLASE or LightSheer are best for you. Experience of practitioner matters between the two. Also, 2 reputable places in NYC that are often recommended here are Lynda and Romeo/Juliet. Lynda uses a LightSheer i think and Romeo GentleLASE and Apogee Elite (alex and yag).
bikini will be fine with laser, as well as underarms (since hair is coarse). with facial hair, it depends on the type and amount of hair you have. electrolysis might be better. What kind of facial hair? Are you male or female?
Hello. I am female. The hairs on my cheeks are small but not vellus. They make small black dots on my face that can be squeezed out, and plucked out when they have a small hair coming out, but are not black heads. I have tried to have electrolysis there, but it creates breakouts (I have had electrolysis on my lip, chin and bikini line, and those coarser hairs do not present that problem.
My face is a IV, my underarms are much lighter. I used the Diode laser on my brazilian area, the pain was almost unbearable so I stopped treatment. But I will be willing to try again for underarms.
THere is a place during spa week that does use the GentleLase, and one that uses the Diode, so I can go with those places, for only $50!
