I live in the DFW area and have gone to two different places...my armpits were done at Smooth Solutions...the ambiance was nothing but they had good customer service and the girls that are fuzz buzzing you are nice and take care of you trying to keep the area cool and reduce the pain...making the experience great...for six pit treatments it cost $214...at Novopelle I found a full body treatment for 1099 ish which is cheaper now and I had the Brazilian option for the girlie area...the ambiance is nice but it is the worst customer service...they are always late...there is some chick in the back never working and always putting on makeup...and they can be hella rude...I read a post that someone said the place was ghetto...when I went for a consultation they were nice and the place looked nicer than Smooth Solutions...but as soon as I paid for my package they changed and I understood why someone said it was ghetto...oh wait...they are nice to other Latin customers...so if you are Latin you will get excellent customer service...mostly because they think they cannot talk smack about you in Spanish...also...when they buzz you at Novopelle...they do nothing to soothe or cool your skin during treatment...so you are on FIRE...one girl did try to use a wet paper towel...like wth...Smooth Solutions uses the cold gel and cold air...

From both, I get really great results...however I did get some bad reactions from Novopelle because they did nothing to soothe the skin but that was temporary and nothing horribly bad...I wish I took pictures...I have two more on the full body package and my legs are completely hair free...the bush needs the extra two and my face is good as well...I need to touch up the pits for what little hair that came back but I will go back to Smooth Solutions.

Hi Ladies!!! Glad to see everyone doing well.... STiLL no new ingrown hairs under my neck and chinSmile All of them are gone.I'm so happy. I have my third session on Monday. I still have dense hair on my chin but its less hairs. I deciced to get my side burns and upper lip done as well. My first treatment was last tuesday. The laser lady even did my checks as a freebie. I get ingrowns there once in a while as well. I'm still please with the results. The fact that I have no ingrown hair makes a world of difference. I feel much more confident now. The people at the laser center said she could do spot treatment chem peels to get rid of the dark marks as well when the laser treatment is completed.

I have read on other skin boards that the bleaching agent in conjunction with the laser can cause hyperpigmentation.   Is this true?  I have been having laser hair removal done for ever and now that my face is starting to get to a decent state, I want to start incorporating some bleaching agents for the dark spots.

I found a special on Groupon, $180  for 3 treatments. I got my chin area done. I am going to get my side burns, upper jaw area, and front of neck done for and additional $100/treatment (total). The doctor used the Candela laser which she said was good for AA skin. Ive also been using the TCA 18% peel to fade the scars on my neck and chin. I think this combo is effective on my chin. Im actually excited about getting my second treatment done next week!
 
UPDATE
 
So i finished my three treatments and i feel Confused about my results. The three treatments got rid of the thicker diameter hairs but Im still getting growth from the finer hairs, a lot more growth actually. i got another groupon for $149  for 6 tratments but my first appt wont eb for 6 weeks.

Smile Bump!!
 
How's it going ladies
 
Laser hair removal has been one of most life changing things I have ever done. My neck/Chin has 3 more sessions and I have 2 more side burns and chest area two more.  I wish I could figure out how to post pics on this site. Its's a dramatic difference!!!
 
My skin no longer peels from the harsh tend skin I used to use, no more puss and hair bumps. It's smooth to touch. There are still a lot of dark marks but have gotten better since I dont at the area. I plan on doing some acid peels after I'm done with laser treatment.

I have been using laser treatment here in STL and I must say I'm impressed! My dark marks are fading and my skin is smooth. Once I'm done with the face I will move to the arm pits.
