Hi my name is Samantha I went into a therapist clinic in Ireland for a consultation about skin which she never told me anything about firstly I asked the girl if there was hair on my face, she wouldn't answer me she said the only way she can tell me if the hair on my face is dark is if she does a patch test.
I didn't want that, I knew nothing about it that's not why I went in there..she said she'd do it to the side of my face which I was okay about, then she done the right side of my upper lip which I'm really upset about> I
would never do anything like that to my face, I wouldn't even wax because I wouldn't like people seeing it grow back and now I'm really worried about what she done because now I think the hair on my face that she done will grow back darker than they were when she done that.
Can you please tell me what way and colour it will grow back because i don't want laser and never have.
Reply Hi Samantha
During your consultation the therapist should have explained to you: hair growth cycles; what skin type you are; she should have also examined the growth to see if you are suitable for the laser treatment.
The fairer your skin type is and the darker or coarser the hairs are means that the laser will work better. With finer, lighter or fluffy hair laser would be less effective for you.
From your email I understand that a patch test was done on a little side of your upper lip, the hair should grow back normal and not get any worse however, this is dependent upon your previous hair colour.
I need some more information in order to answer your question adequately, could you let me know your skin type, what skin colour you are, what is your hair like, is it coarse, dark or fine?
With this information I may be able to answer your question better.
I have just received your email with the special laser deal which I am very interested in, do I need to have a patch test ?
Answer Yes, before you start your treatment you need to come in and have a consultation to see if you are suitable for laser hair removal. If you are suitable then we carry out a patch test. If you have a reaction to the patch test then we will refund your money.
Once you've paid for the special offer online, complete the form and one of the therapist will call you for a consultation and patch test.
