First Treatment

I had a full body laser hair removal done about 3 months ago for the first time. I had the candela gentlelase used. Before doing the full body laser, I had my underarms done because I wanted to see if I would be able to tolerate the pain. I did the underarm laser 1 month before doing the full body, so in total i had my underarms lasered twice and full body done once. I would say I am type 2, light skinned middle eastern female with dark brown hair. I waited the 3 months because I wanted to see the type of result I would get after the session. i feel like pretty much all hair grew back, even after 2 sessions of underarms. my bikini area had good results (reduction about 20%) after 1 session, and even though its not recommended for a female to have her back lasered, i had that done as well, and i would say there is less fuzz there as well. i also had my lower stomach done and reduction about 20%. as for my legs, arms, and underarms, i feel like everything grew back. i made an appointment for another visit i'm going to in a few days, its just i don't want to end up paying so much money for all my hair to grow back like what i have read happen to other people. when i called for the appointment, i asked them to provide me with the strength they used on the candela gentlelase on me. they used 18mm and 8 (she said she used 7 on more delicate areas like bikini and 8 overall on body and 9 on other areas). i just wanted to make sure these settings are ok and not too weak since my biggest fear is to spend so much money with all my hair growing back. when she said 18mm and 8, i'm not too sure what that means so i'm hoping i can have more insight on that. thanks

Hey author, i really have a big sympathy with you and i can feel your pain because i also experience such condition when i undergo Laser hair removing technique two hair ago and i believe that for Permanent Hair Removal , laser therapy is not a good option because it requires lots of buck and 8-10 session for complete treatment plus it is very painful.
After all this i prefer hair removing devices and believe me i earn a healthy response from this.Try such devices...
