After checking on the web and reading this thread, I just went in for my first session. For the benefit of others considering the procedure, I'd like to take a few moments to talk about the pain. Bascially, the darker and denser your hair, the greater the pain. Dark and dense hair (shaved) is what I've got everywhere except the crown of my head.I can't remember feeling so much pain. Terrible, searing pain. I was sweating and trembling from the pain. I called out from the pain. Lasering my head took about one hour, during which I was in almost constant pain.During the process, I imagined that my head would be a bloody mess when it was over. Nope. I looked in the mirror and no apparent damage. The dome never looked better.The total cost for session #1 was about $150. The technician even picked off some random ear, eyebrow, and neck hair at no additional charge. She believes that I'll need eight or more sessions to completely remove my hair. She recommends having a session every four weeks.My advice to other Sly Bald Guys looking to do this procedure is to take something to dull the pain. A few advils would be a good idea. Personally, I'm coming back next time with a vicodin.
Id like to get my head lasered someday also and have spoken with several other baldies that have had it done. Common- your experience does not sound like ones I have heard of. I understand there is some pain but should be nothing like you experience. The laser tech may have the laser energy set too high.
