Didn't Work at All and I Wasted THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS!

Yes, you read it right, I've spent at least...

Yes, you read it right, I've spent at least $10,000 on laser hair removal and it has not worked at all!

The first round of treatments through UCLA Medical Center were costly and worthless.  I spent $500 per series of treatments, and I had a LOT of treatments.  I was trying to get a more "acceptable" bikini area if you know what I mean.  It was very embarrassing, but that's easy to forget about.  The $$ that I wasted is not quite so easy to forget!

They used three different lasers on me and none of them removed the hair for any period of time.  By the time I would go back for subsequent treatments, the hair would already be back.  Finally one of the doctors told me that I had "refractive hair and they couldn't do anything for me".  Supposedly, that's when your hair reflects back as a different color when the laser hits it and the laser can't "zero in" on the melanin.

I went to two other practitioners who performed countless treatments on my abdomen and chin/neck with different lasers, all to no avail.  It hasn't done any good.  I still clog the drain every time I shave!  :)

Hi Rosie. Do you know what three lasers you were treated with? Based on your picture, I would suggest a "diode" or "alexandrite" laser. Examples of these are the Lumenis Lightsheer (diode) and Cynosure Apogee (alexandrite). If you were not treated with either of these types of machines, I might be able to understand why you did not achieve good results. If you were treated with these machines, then the explanation woudl be more difficult.

I went to a clinic, spent $6000 dollars on 8 treatments over the body. The lady was brown and she was a dick. She wouldn't do the bikini line properly, and when I wore shorts, the lines were revealed. Also, only 5-10% of the hair disappeared, and some places, actually more grew! Unbelivable. Also, my treatment was very painful, VERY, but I resisted. I live in Brampton, Ontario, and message if you want to know where the place is.

my laser lady burned my private area twice,and tried to tell me that it was ok,that some people react this way to laser,instead of owning up to their mistake.She gaved me antibiotics and tried to cover up taht they messed up. I dont know if i can sue them or can get my money back but i will try to get my money back at least for 2 treatments each time $120 plus $40 for the antibiotics i had to pay. If somebody wants to know where NOT to go i am happy to tell you where this place is located.
