Hello,

Im seeking some help, ive gotten hormone therapy, and i can get some facial hair removal treatments from my insurance grin

But i have to find my own clinic. (I'm from the Netherlands)

When i search the web, i see so many solutions and methods i don't know what is best.

I had 1 consult with a clinic, and they said that i could possible need 10 sessions or more. They use a sheerlight laserdiode.
I have some blond hair in my cheeks, that need Electrolysis.

Ive added a picture of my cheek, i didn't shave for 1 day.
My skintype is II?

Is the Sheerlight laserdiode a good option?
Where i am from mostly its IPL and ive seen one with an Nd:YAG?

Thanks in advanced.

LIGHT-BASE DEVICES, IPL or a true laser, will not work on light, thin hair or even light, coarse hair. You need electrolysis,whether it be Galvanic, blend or thermolysis. An actual probe needs to inserted into each individual follicle. Nothing else will work for a permanent solution.

The picture you attached is not good quality. I can't see anything. I am going by your verbal description.

I found the picture fine, just a little more enlarged . Reducing size in the browser gave a much better view.

Dee is correct however, that electrolysis is the way to go for blong/red/light hairs. Considering that the hairs you have seem relatively mixed, you wont get much economy from doing laser. I'd go strait to electrolysis.

Also ND-yag is meant for darker skin tones than yours. IPL is too weak to perform permanent removal.

Ik woonde in Nederland voor een paar jaar (A’dam/Alkmaar). Ik leerde elektrische ontharing. Neem contact op met de ANBOS in Den Haag voor een electrologist.
