1 doctor agrees
In brief: Too much
In my opinion, lhe is a bad choice for laser hair removal.
Most equipment chills the skin to protect it before firing the light to kill the hair follicle and stem cells. With lhe, the skin is actually heated, supposedly to reduce the energy needed to get the job done. This make no sense to me. It probably works on ideal patients, ie very pale skin, very dark hair. Find another option.
