what are some of the LHR machines on the market?
there are lots of laser out in the market and it's hard to distinguish between lasers that are used for skin rejuvenation treatments, and those meant for removing unwanted hair ;) so be very careful!

1. Alexandrite: GentleLASE, Apogee, EpiTouch Plus

2. Diode: LightSheer, Syneron, SLP 1000, F1 Diode, MeDioStar, LaserLite, Epistar, Apex 800, Comet (w/RF technology), Palomar SLP 1000, Soprano XL

3. Nd:Yag: CoolGlide, GentleYAG, Candela, Lyra-i, Sciton, Apogee Elite, Medlite IV, Varia, Athos

4. IPL: Elite, Aurora (w/RF technology), Harmony, EpiLight, PhotoDerm, Quantum, Aculight, Vasculight, Palomar Starlux and EsteLux

5. Ruby: RubyStar, E2000


*LightSheer Diode is the Gold Standard for LHR

*** *** ***

IPL vs DIODE

Alexandrite & Diode --> single light wavelength concentration
IPL --> use a full/broad spectrum of light wavelengths

some patients and professionals claim that the IPL's greater wavelength spectrum equals less precision and less control, which could mean an increased risk of burns and hair removal side effects with misuse.

it is popular in the market because it is very much cheaper compared to a diode.

be aware that hair removal systems that use traditional incoherent light (highly concentrate beam) for treatment (Intense Pulse Light/IPL) are not true hair removal lasers. a serious flaw with these systems is that they lack the laser's ability to produce a selective bandwidth of light that will only affect the hair shaft (selective photothermolysis). these devices produce a wide bandwidth of light that can heat up all of the surrounding tissue. true lasers usually achieve better and faster results for hair removal purposes.

IPL is not a LASER
As per US FDA, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is not a laser.... technically doesn't contain a laser. They use use xenon flash lamps that emit full spectrum light. In the US, IPL is sometimes called as "phototricholysis" or "photoepilation"... but now they are commonly (but incorrectly) referred to as "laser hair removal".

Permanent Hair removal vs Permanent Hair Reduction
US FDA ONLY allows the term "permanent hair removal" for ELECTROLYSIS. so be careful of false marketing/sales strategies. Laser = Permanent Hair Reduction  ;)

*** *** *** ***

what not to do before LHR
- no waxing/plucking or removing hair with the root 4-6 weeks before and throughout the course of treatment

what to expect after LHR
- shedding (hair will fall off naturally) will start 1.5 weeks after your treatment and will last until 3.5 weeks (that's why it is recommended to go back after a month so that the shedding process is completely done;) )
- you will notice that hair looks like growing so fast, these are the hair that have been treated and is just coming through the skin to shed. ;)
- exfoliating and/or scrubbing gently in the shower can help speed up the process (scrubbing is also healthy because it promotes healthy blood circulation)
- after shedding, you might experience little black dots still stuck in the skin. these are commonly referred to as pepperspots and will shed eventually, but might take a bit longer. exfoliate to help those out as well.

some people may experience the following potential temporary side effects
- itching
- redness for up to 3 days
- swelling around mouth of follicle for up to 3 days
- tingling or feeling of numbness

the following rare side effects are indicative of inappropriate laser type and/or settings
- crusting/scab (brown spots)
- bruising
- purpura (purple coloring of the skin)
- temporary pigment change (hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation)

what if you didn't expect shedding?
- the settings used might have been too low and you should inform your doctor that it didnt happen.
- also, if you feel that a lot of hair didnt shed, the doctor might have missed those parts

why do we need to have consecutive monthly treatments during the initial phase?
hair grows in 3 phases and is killed in the first anagen (active growing phase). several treatments are needed to target ALL hair in the active growth phase. after completing or so, patients should experience a considerable percentage of hair reduction.

anagen (active) is the growing phase or when the hair fiber is produced. during this time the hair contains a lot melanin thus the pigment of the color of your hair

catagen (club hair) is the period of controlled regression of the hair follicle. this is when the lower part of the hair stops growing, but does not shed, and the follicle is reabsorbed.

telogen (tired) is the last of the hair growth cycle. this is resting phase/dormant stage. the old hair falls out in preparation for the development of a new anagen hair.

after completing sessions... are we totally hair free?
NO! with laser we won't be totally hair free. only electrolysis will make us totally hair free! we will be hair free for a period of time. but it doesn't mean, we wasted a lot of money and still we are not hair free. laser, slows down hair growth as well and the growth will be super fine (barely noticeable hair).

maintenance/touch ups/booster shots
after completing our sessions. we will have permanent hair reduction. for us to maintain it, we have to have booster shots as well. this could be 1 year or 2 years after your last treatment. how fast hair growth is depends from person to person. if you think, you it's reasonable to have another session, then go for a booster shot.

tnx sis loball, tawagan ko na lang, sana carry ng budget hehe...would you girls know if discounted ang price ng brazilian laser if previously nakapag-bikini laser na, so maliit na part na lang talaga yung hair? kasi iniisip ko, kung walang bumili nung mga bikini laser vouchers ko, ituloy ko na lang sya, then afterwards kung may budget na or kung may mahanap na mura, tsaka na lang ituloy ng brazilian.

hi all, newbie here.. ive been lurking for a long time in this thread and im thankful for all the tips of everyone who shared their experiences.. at first, my concern was just an IPL, then i found out about LHR and i find it more effective than IPL, then when i decided to give it a try,last june 9,i was supposed to go to skin station to avail their UA unlimited diode but since they didnt have a slot na for that day, i rushed to shinagawa, and tried out their candela nd-yag(1,500 with unli clicks, but mine was like a total of 180). well the experience was painful but tolerable, my UA didnt turn red which the nurse was amazed, and said wow u have high tolerance. then i just bought UA deo and cream in skinstation belair and bought a bonne nano white showersalt for scrubbing of UA.

as of now, wala pa namang shedding, sabi nila 2weeks pa daw, but i will definitely avail the sensi peel of HOO nextweek then get an LHR again but this time either skin station timog (soprano accord) or LFI (lighsheer).

but for now, will still observe muna. then will update u gurls.
reading threads here makes me more alert and knowledgeable of the things i should do.
thank u girl talkers kudos!

Asian normally has promos during summer.  You cannot ask for the actual price through phone, you have to look for a derma who will give you the quotation.  If you will get a package, definitely, lower ang price.  Lightsheer duet ang gamit nila so it's a great machine.

Beevere

I've tried booster shot with LFI when they had a christmas promo, I can't say na classy yung place, ofcourse sa mall so what do you expect.  But not so bad.

I'm satisfied with the results of my UA LHR so far.  Even sa full bikini, hair strands are thinner and right now walang hair.  Important talaga na medical grade yung machine na ginagamit.

I had my 1st session of LHR sa LFI kanina. LightSheer daw gamit nila.


Just wondering if these are normal:
I guess 20 yung fluence. Basta dun sa screen 20 yung nakita ko.
For my left ua 66 clicks, sa right naman 71.


Hindi po ba masyadong konti yung clicks nya?


It was kinda painful lalo na kasi coarse talaga ua hair ko (mabalbon din kasi ako). Pero may parts na halos wala ako mafeel, siguro sa bandang gilid lang ng ua ko yon, wala masyadong hair or walang hair at all.


Also noticed na habang nile-laser ako, as in nangangamoy sunog na buhok. May mga parts sa right ua ko na hindi ata masyadong na shave at may maliliit na hair pa, tried to pull two pero ang daling natanggal. Ano pong gagawin ko don? ok lang tanggalin or hayaan ko nalang?
And so far, sobrang dami parin ng chicken skin. Sana eventually mawala din to.
