I am set on permanent hair removal as soon as I can afford it. I’m 20, male, type II, coarse dark hair (a lot of it), and I’m not asking for permanent removal, just a lot of reduction (a lot) so I’m leaning toward laser over electrolysis. After reading a lot of people’s posts, I see that sometimes laser either doesn’t work, or all the hair comes back, or sometimes stimulates new growth. I’ve also read some of these things happen with certain types of laser.
My goal is to get as much reduction as possible. I would rather pay a little more and have it take a little longer and not have to deal with any side effects. I currently have no idea what the differences are between the different kinds of lasers, or about the joules or wavelengths or any of that. Is it right that certain lasers have certain side effects? Can anyone give me the quick rundown?
