Laser Settings Are not As Important As Achieving Appropriate Laser Endpoints
Sorry to hear of your troubles. Without any knowledge of your skin type, it’s tough to make a useful recommendation. Specific laser settings are not as important as achieving appropriate laser endpoints. For laser hair removal, the appropriate endpoint is to visualize mild erythema and edema around the hair follicle after treatment. Your provider should be well-versed in these matters in order to achieve optimal results.
