I'm very happy for you. Thank you for posting your success story, MQ. This follows what I see as an electrologist for these areas where laser reduction works wonderfully well.

Your input is very much appreciated!

1. Area(s) treated: Full leg and "brazilian"

2. How long it's been since last treatment: 6 months +

3. Your skin and hair type on that area(s): Light/yellow skin. Very thick, dense black hair that grew very fast; I was shaving every morning and would have stubble within 5 hours.

4. Device used and settings (if known): Alexandrite laser; I had 8 treatments on legs and 7 on "brazilian"

5. Estimated % of reduction in the area(s): 90% on legs (yay!), 95% on bikini line (yay!), no reduction at all on mons pubis, but that doesn't bother me

6. Name and location of clinic (great recommendation!): Sona Med Spa in Dallas, TX

7. Finishing with electrolysis?: No

I do have hair growing back on my thighs and a few stragglers on my lower legs, but it's so fine and soft that I can easily remove it with depilatory cream. Last month, I was able to go on vacation and wear a bikini for the first time in nearly 10 years. It's been life changing.

Personally, I don't feel the need to have further treatments.

Great reduction indeed!

Is it possible to get these kinds of results as a Type IV-V skin tone?

I've only had bad experiences with LHR thus far...
