I just went to 2 consultations yesterday for laser hair removal.
I am a type IV skin and have decided to use the yag.
I asked for a test patch at each.
1. At this location, they use the Candela Yag machine.
Settings used: 34J/ 15 mm window
It did hurt/sting alot, and the test patch was on tiny section of right underarm.
2. At this location, they use Cutera Coolglide vantage 1064 mm.
Settings used: 40J/35 ms. I was not provided with a the size.
I asked for the patch on the left underarm, and it was virtually painless during the test.
She iced the area prior to even starting, and then applied a cream afterwards.
Between these two, would you say the settings were good? Is one machine beter than the other?
