Laser hair removal. Scam machine? Or just super new and modern? (Photo)

Improved laser or scam
I have never heard of a laser that gets the job done in 2 minutes and that patients do not experience any discomfort. You should ask your provider what laser type are they using and express your concerns. In the future, you should commit yourself for such treatments with certified experts who vouch for safety and success of their treatments.
New laser or scam?
Hello, thank you for your question. Looking at the photo, I cannot tell what kind of laser that is by the photo, but looking at the 2 hand pieces at the top it appears to be an IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device, not a laser. Laser is definitely a lot more effective than an IPL device. There should definitely be heat associated with the treatment and 2 minutes seems very fast.
Laser hair removal, possible scam
Hi there, I'm not sure what type of machine that is from your pictures but I have never heard of a large area such as the back being treated in 3 minutes. Additionally, it sounds as if you are not getting any results. After 3 treatments you should notice some patchiness and hair loss and you should be experiencing some warmth and discomfort.

Laser hair removal for back should take 10-15 minutes minimum
I can't see how a laser can treat a back in only 2 minutes. I can't tell what the laser type is but I have never heard of a laser treating that quickly. There should be some warmth and mild discomfort as well.
