I am back to old fashioned Electrolysis again.
 
Why .. because I have ingrown hairs on my chin (a family trait) so 20 or so years ago (when I was younger and had black hair) laser treatments only worked against white skin so and I had to use electrolysis.
 
Now that some of those hairs on my chin are starting to grow back that they have improved the laser technique so that it works for dark skin. Great, however the hairs on my chin are now gray/white and guess what? This new laser technique for dark skin DOES NOT WORK on light hair ... against dark skin!
 
Just my luck ...
 
(The hair on my private area is sparce and grows slow so maybe I shave once a month - takes 2 minutes. Underarm hair maybe once every 2 months - takes a minute. Hair on my legs umm once a year usually I do this at the beginning of summer. Even shaping up my eyebrows  I do about 2 times a month.
 
BUT THE HAIRS ON MY CHIN!! GROW LIKE THE DICKENS. This should be my last shot at Electrolysis!! The good thing is it's cheap like 20 a session.)

That happened to me, that's why I stopped with the laser. The hair fell out and then some grew back white!! I noticed this with my armpits so I stopped and the hair has gone back to black again. I wax now and it's fine.  I am coming round to the idea of lasering again.... Maybe a different laser type.

Yes, but I did not use the laser .. I used Electrolysis - you know with the needle.
 
They really killed off all the hair on my chin - it was a mess.
 
The thing is .. all these years later and few hairs started growing back so stupid me I used the tweezers and guess what - more hair came back. They said when you tweeze the hair or wax (pull it out at the root)  that STIMULATES the surrounding area and makes hair grow back there too!
 
It is growing back gray though because I am older now so the hair on my head, aunderarms, private area, even a few hairs in my eyebrows and now my chin .. are mostly GRAY/WHITE!.
 
Of course, I remove/dye (read HIDE) this so this is my secret and noone knows. hee hee!

My only regret on doing laser hair removal is that I should have done it sooner than later. It is the BEST money I have ever spent. :)

I also suggest catching the hair within it's growth periods. So make stick to the sessions within 6 months of each other.

TBH, I did not and still saw results.

I have unlimited sessions on my chin, stomach, back, and brazilian. I just had my 2nd session last weekend. I saw the most obvious results on my pumpum 2 weeks after the first session (since the hair is so dark). A lot of the hair had fallen out leaving it with bald spots which I was really happy with, but unfortunately a lot of the bald spots are filled in now with finer hair, probably due to the next growth cycle coming in. Anyways hoping to see the results for my most recent session in about a week!

This one has the YAG. Nice staff... I've also gotten facials and microdermabrasion from here as well.

This lady has the Alma Laser but her staff is known to double book appts and the techs ALWAYS upsell you the ENTIRE session.
