Thank you for pointing out what we have been trying to nicely say for years here.
Electrolysis and L.A.S.E.R. are two different things. They don’t work the same way, and don’t provide the same results.
If 100% permanent and total Hair Removal is one’s goal, find a good electrologist. If thinning the herd is enough for you, LASER may be a good choice for you, provided you find a good practitioner, and don’t mind the risks.
I always compare it to Automobiles, and Motorcycles. They are both transportation, but are in no way the same thing, and anyone who bought a motorcycle thinking it was equivilent to a car would have a monumental case of buyer’s remorse when they found out the difference.
Our information says that in the best, of best case situations, a person would still have to have 40% of their hair removed by Electrolysis at the conclusion of the most successful LASER program, if total hair removal were the stated goal.
