Allergic Reaction to Laser Hair Removal - Candela GentleLASE Alexandrite Laser. Narre Warren, AU

So I am at the beginning of my laser hair removal journey. I have reasonably fair skin with very dark (almost black) thick hair.

Inflamed, Red, Itchy, Blotchy Rash - Estero, FL

My decision is still out on laser, until my treatments are finished, I guess. The effect of the treatments is awesome. Only shaved once in between first two treatments. I just had my 3rd treatment to the bikini. The first one I did not use numbing cream (BLT) and it hurt like crazy!!! No... READ MORE

First GentleLase Treatment

Had my first GentleLase treatment on underarms and brazilian. Since its only my first treatment, I obviously can't rate the hair reduction, but will talk about the pain level. For me, the pain was extremely minimal. I previously would wax both areas and waxing hurt WAY more than the laser. On... READ MORE

First Time Leg Laser Hair Removal - Roseville, MN

I had my first laser hair removal session yesterday with Rachel at Tareen Dermatology. I've never had lasers of any kind so I was nervous.

"Tighter Skin Without Any Down Time" - Matawan, NJ

As a 45 year I wanted to do something to make me feel better about the way I looked. Plus, it was right before the holidays. Dr. Patel's laser treatment helped tighten the skin around my face and remove brown spots. It was a quick and easy procedure done in the office. My skin feels better and I... READ MORE

Success with Gentlelase Hair Removal - New York, NY

I originally went to Dr. Sheryl Clark because she is familiar with South Asian/Indian skin types. I read reviews that my skin tone/type may not work well with some hair removal machines and that I should consult with a dermatologist who has worked with my ethnic skin. I also refused to go to any... READ MORE

Candela Gentlelase - Really Worth It! - Melbourne, AU

I had 4 treatments on legs, underarms, and bikini-line last year with the Candela Gentlelase Plus machine. I used to be very hairy, with quite think dark brown to black hair. After only 4 treatments I now have only a small amount of very thin/fine lighter hair on the treated areas. It is hardly... READ MORE

I Think It is Inferior to Other Laser Treatments, Like SIPL

Dont think anything changed, bikini or underarm. In my past treatments I noticed hair reduction straight away. Regarding the review items below, they were nice - the treatment just did not work. I am white skinned with dark hair. It was not painful, as they used two cooling... READ MORE

Laser Only Works on Coarse Hair. If You Treat the Right Type of Hair, You'll Love the Results Like I Do! - Los Angeles

I did extensive research before having LHR and picked the best laser for my skin type, an alexandrite (GentleLASE by Candela). I made sure to treat only dark coarse hair, i.e. my underarms, bikini and lower legs, and choose a clinic that was knowledgeable about settings (i.e. not undertreating... READ MORE

Laser Hair Removal on Dark Skin

I did laser hair removal on underarms and knees to ankles. I have medium dark skin. It got rid of some of it but not all of it. After a few years it seemed like some of what was gone was coming back. I suppose I will go back for some more removal appointments. It was worth having less hair for... READ MORE

Body hair has always been an issue for me because I have light skin but dark black hair in unwanted places. I accept that there will be hair in “the usual” spots like my bikini area but it’s also a major problem on my lower abdomen leading to my pubic area. I’m talking... READ MORE
