I have undergone 7 sittings for face hair laser reduction. My doctor calls me for the sitting after 4-6 weeks. Any suggestion? (

When #LaserHairRemoval is not giving you permanent and significant results
We have treated hundreds of patients with Indian skin tones and you should be seeing permanent and significant reductions after three treatments. After 6, most of the hair is gone in a typical patient who has been returning for treatments on the recommended schedule. Nd-Yag, Diode, or Alexandrite lasers can be uses for Indian skin of medium color. The first two are just a bit uncomfortable because they penetrate deeper, but are safer for dark Indian skin or black skin.
I recommend that you consult a board-certified dermatologist and ensure they are overseeing the parameters used for your treatments. I have been consulted by many patinets -- and their attorneys-- regarding burns sustained after treatment at a spa or without proper supervision, especially for people with your skin type. Even worse, perhaps, is the vast number of clients who are under-treated, to prevent side effects, and become caught in a cycle of never-ending treatments rather than permanent removal.
