Meet Jessica: She is a 32 year old working professional who is tired of shaving her underarms and legs at least 3 times per week. That takes a lot of time, she gets razor cuts, and the razor and supplies are not cheap either. She starts researching laser hair removal and likes what she finds. She gets an email from Groupon or LivingSocial or any of the other "daily deals" company (see an example below) which is advertising for laser hair removal from a local MedSpa. She sees that she can get 6 "laser hair removal sessions" for her underarms for $99. She also sees that she can get 6 "laser hair removal" sessions for her upper legs at $299 and 6 "laser hair removal" sessions for her lower legs for another $299.
"It's a good deal!" Jessica thinks to herself. "I will spend less than $700 for my legs and underarms and I won't have to shave again!" She undergoes the 6 "laser hair removal" sessions, having not only spent $700, but more importantly spending many hours for treatments. Unfortunately 4 months after her last "laser" hair session, most of the hair starts to come back. She has to start shaving again. She gets very upset and frustrated! She thinks it was a complete waste of her time and money! What Jessica doesn't realize is that she is a victim of false-advertising of not only the MedSpa that she went to but also the "daily deal" company.
What can you do?
1. Make sure you are actually getting LASER hair removal and not IPL.
How can you tell? Do your research!
We have provided you with lots of information about laser hair removal. Ask them what type of LASER they are using? What wavelength? There are really only 3 wavelengths used for laser hair removal: 1064nm (YAG laser), 755nm (ALEX laser), and 810nm (Diode laser).
2. Go in for a (free) consultation and be sure to ask to speak with their Medical Director who should be a physician. If there is no physician on-site, be very careful! If a laser technician will be operating the laser, (in Florida) a physician must be on-site at all times!
If a technician is doing the procedure and there is no doctor on-site, they are either breaking Florida law or they are using an IPL machine! So be very careful!
