Edokid, I think your idea is a perfectly good one, but don't use it as an excuse to stop wearing sunscreen! You'll get ouchied. frown

My dad is practically disfigured from skin cancer now, so just be really careful, okay? At the very least, don't let yourself get sunburned...

Oh don't worry! I don't go tan crazy, I just mean right now I put sunscreen on my arms to drive to work just in case they get a little sun in the car!

The selection of hairs that you suggest is plausible. But this way it will be difficult for you to evaluate the results of your electrologist.

La sélection des poils que vous suggérez est plausible. Mais avec cette manière, il sera difficile pour vous d'évaluer les résultats de votre électrologiste.

Which is a necessity. We simply need to know more about the heath of our customers than the laser- and ipl-people do. Anyway, in similar situations i try to offer my customers a time window.

I agree beate.

One cannot tell how the skin has reacted immediately, for example, scabbing can take a day or two to form. Sometimes a few adjustments are needed until the electrologist finds the optimum settings for the hair type and skin reactions. Hence it is better to have a short treatment with a day or two break at least to assess how the skin has reacted. If it's fine, then you can take the plunge with confidence, otherwise another short treatment may be necessary.

Thanks for your help everyone, I'll do that soon then go in for a 15 minute consultation and have her remove some hairs to test it out see how I react. If I go to the place near me, it's 1.5km away, google maps says 3 minute drive lol it's literally down the street. Only thing on Google maps I can't see it, just some other place, not the nicest area but I'll check around no real rush smile

Hey edokid, I wanted to ask about tanning.

How much tan did you have to have before they switched Lasers?

I've been have arm treatments (2 so far). My arms tan really easily but I've been lucky that the weather in the UK has been rubbish mostly. I have been wearing spf, not going out too much (eating lunch in the office instead of the park, boooo), and wearing sleeves. However, I do have a tendency to roll them up a little and you can just make out that the skin is slightly lighter where I wear my watch.

Do you think this is enough that they will want to lower settings? Coz I really don't think I want my next treatment at the same or lower settings.
