I'm actually experiencing the shedding from the IPL sample treatment. Done with the Syneron eLight. The area is smoother.
Does this usually mean it will lead to permanent results?
I went to another clinic that has the LightSheer Duet. They seem pretty greedy, they wouldn't even do a sample area for me. It seems like most places that use the laser technology and not IPL won't give any sample treatments.
I'm going to another place soon to get a consultation, but once again they won't even give a sample treatment.
Is this normal? The girls that work there seem nice, she was even gonna through me in a free treatment without telling the main dr./clinic owner. He seems like a real cheap ass.
I don't understand when you're going to drop $1800+ Canadian on 6 treatments plus a free one, that they can't even give you a sample to see if it even works. I can't believe these places, they just want to take your money and run.
Also joben , I should mention, they have an Alex laser but refuse to use it on the chest since it's "too much work" or some crap like that. They will only offer the LightSheer Duet and claim it works just as well and it is faster. Have you ever tried the LightSheer?
I have no clue why they would tell you using an Alex is "too much work." Seems like BS to me. I have never been treated with Lightsheer. I've read that with an experienced user it is an effective laser, but I found the Alex works well for me so I stick with what works.
As for shedding...that is a good sign. However, I've read that hair can shed and that does not always mean the follicle is dead. Put another way, settings that are too low can cause the hair to shed, but not damage the follicle enough to stop future hair growth. Laser settings have to high enough.
