Thanks for all of the great information here, I have been reading and reading and gathering as much information as I could before I started laser hair removal last week.
I too purchased 2 of those group buy certificates for 3 areas of laser hair removal.
I met with the technician beforehand and I felt alright with the information I rec’d prior to purchasing my certificates and was ready to go.
However, the technician/owner of the salon, purchased a new machine - a Sphere 810 and only started using it 1 week ago.
And from what I can tell from the posts I read here - she went way too fast for the session I had.
I had full legs, brazilian, and underarms and the entire session took 35 minutes.
She was gliding back and forth very quickly.
I did a search and wasn’t able to find any comments here regarding this type of machine, so perhaps someone might be able to provide some insight, based on the info I found on the company website?
Sphere 810 is the high powered 810nm diode laser for permanent hair removal. More enhanced power provides shorter pulse width so that it reduces patients’ pains. Also Sphere 810 is available for treating various applications to all kinds of skin types, regardless of Westerners or Easterners because it provides various pulse mode.
Sphere 810 operation is safe by uniform and stable laser beam quality of 810 nm Diode Laser. It minimizes thermal damage with monochromatic wavelength.
Sphere 810 relieves pain with strong power in a moment, short pulse width and 3 cooling system (Sapphire-tip contact cooling, an optional separate double cooling tube and an optional exteriors cooling installation).
Shorten operating time
Sphere810 provides more rapid and accurate medical operation by the enlarged spot size.
Four different pulse mode and an optional hand piece treat lots of applications for most kinds of skin and hair types.
Collimating lenses uniformly radiate direct wave so that the treatment area could be pointed precisely. It helps to reduce patients’ pain and gain a better treatment efficacy because it decreases the loss and scattering of laser output.
In addition to the speedy session, I had no redness at all, no swelling, nothing at all to indicate that I even had a session. And this was my first time.
I have a skin type III. I am fair-skinned, with dark hair.
