Laser doesn't work for me because I have dark skin, so I decided - or had to given the amount of hair I have - to try electrolysis even though it takes longer and is a bit more painful. Thought it would be a lot lot worse, but it was actually a good experience. I liked the very central location, atmosphere, and the electrologist I had (Mary). Mary was efficient, very nice, and made me feel comfortable. I had a day of redness which freaked me out, so I called to see if this was normal. Apparently it is, and sure enough it went away after a day. I've been coming back and HOPEFULLY HOPEFULLY soon will be rid of it all!
