I've had it done a few times

First couple treatments were with the regular ole white folks laser, and it didn't cause me any problems until the bitch burned the back of my leg Cry. It was pretty gross. and it was only in 1 spot. Pain is beauty though.. so of course I went to another place when I caught a great deal on Groupons

The tech had a difficult time identifying my skin type (with good reason). First she used the white folks laser on a low setting, no burns, but no results! The hair didn't fall out over the next couple weeks like it should

Then she used the YAG (black folks laser) , no burns and no results!.. She said it was because I was too light for this laser

THEN she used the white folks laser again on a higher setting (alexandrite) and I got a tiny burn, WITH results. Lol.. so I'll take the burns. Plus this burn was no where near as bad as the first one from the other place

Once I can afford it, I plan to get everything done.

Have u ever burnt your forehead with a curling iron? It was like that. If you havent, it kind of turns into a brown spot and then when you touch it a few days later, it slides off and is slimy or wet. Lol..sounds disgusting. But it wasnt really like a traditional scab

BUT it did scar. Not for too long. Maybe a couple of months.. which could be horrible depending on the area. But again, this was with the white folks laser. Come to think of it, I think the first place I went to used IPL rather than laser, but I was also burned (to a lesser extent) by the alexandrite So if you're brown skinned, they probably wouldn't use either of these on you anyway (unless they don't know what you're doing)

Just make sure you call the places you're considering going to and ask if they have a laser for darker/black skin. If they tell you yes, ask for the name of the laser and do a little research to be safe

Do it! You won't regret it! I'm on my way to one of my appointments later on today. I finally talked my daughter into getting her underarms done (she thinks it going to hurt). They should be able to do a patch test. If the laser isn't good for ur skin type, groupon will give u a full refund.

Well i guess your right. I don't really have anything to lose besides this body hair but i don't want to get all souped and then the laser isn't right for my skin. I tried googling that particular laser but nothing comes up telling me about AA skin.

BUMPING the sh*t out of this thread. Goodm3, since you're in Dallas too, what place did you get it done at? I'm interested in getting this done soon.

one of the best decisions ive ever made.

i have had no problems.

and it works for dark skin--if you find a specialist who knows about "negro skin" lol...which is important.
when you go to a dr. that isn't familiar w/ negro skin...and what techniques need to be used on such.. you run the risk of getting burned...literally.
aint your fine self light skindeded ?
