Anyone do laser hair removal on their chin?

I currently get electrolysis, it's ok. What are we talking for pricing (I understand that prices vary) and for results. How long does it take? The last time I checked into it they said it was going to be about 4-6 treatments. I'm white, don't have a lot of hair.

My friend's mother-in-law owns a Salon/Spa in Florida, and was a nurse before she was a licensed aesthetician. Basically, she said that laser rays are specially made to look for dark color- such as dark hair. Therefore, if you are light-skinned and have light hair, it will not wirk for you (nomatter what the clinic will tell you to get your money). You may end up going for 10 sessions and some hair will still grow back. Basically, the hair has to be coarse and dark for the laser to pick it up. I would not reccomend it. I would reccomend a topical cream that is prescribed by a doctor, which slows the growth of hair until eventually killing the root. Ask a dermatologist about it. Good luck.

If you have fine blonde hair don't bother. I have had it done and it did not work at all even though the woman swore it would.

fantastic for me

I too did electrolisis spent like $200.00 for the spot of a dime not worth it. I am currently doing laser hair removal and I wish I would have done it sooner I am on my second treatment out of 5 cost me $850.00 for all 5. I am going to a dermatoligist and they told me on the phone first if I had light colored hair it would not work since the laser is atracted to pigment. I am latina so my hair is jet black and I am light skinned so I am getting fantastic results so far. I want to do my arms next I am like chabaca not a great look for a women.
