Whew! I’m glad that’s over!
Today was my 4th underarm/abdomen and 3rd lip/chin treatment. I was nervous about it all day long. Not really sure why. I guess I was just worried about side effects since the power gets higher each time. Everything went just fine, so I’m looking forward to the shedding!!
The tech did my upper lip first. Whew, I felt quite a bit of zapping this time. It sort of felt like the zaps were deeper. We could smell burning hair, so the tech said that was good. It hurt, but was very bearable. Afterwards, there were just a few areas that showed some redness, a few spots are sore. 2 more treatments to go!
Next was my chin. It felt the same as my upper lip. The zapping felt like it went deeper or longer or something. Painful, but bearable. Lots of burning hair smell.There are a few spots that are sore to the touch and are more red and swollen than the other areas. I few hairs came out after treatment. A few hours later, I can still see several hairs under the skin and many of them have red follicles. A few spots are still more sore and swollen than the rest of the chin. I have been keeping ice on the areas to reduce swelling. 2 more treatments to go!
My tech is very sweet and is giving my the area in between my eyebrows a few zaps. I have to wear special goggles when I get this done. No redness or soreness. The hair feels tougher, maybe like it was singed off or something.
Next was my underarms. Basically the same thing as my face. It was painful, but bearable. The tech said there were a few areas that had more hair than she thought it should have, so she zapped those areas twice. My underarms were red and I felt a burning sensation and many of the follicles are red. A few hours later, the red follicles are still there and the areas are sore to the touch. 1 more treatment to go!!
Finally, my abdomen. There is not much hair left at all there. The tech didn’t have to turn the power down this time since there isn’t much to zap. There were a few painful areas, but it was bearable. I had several small to medium welts after the treatment, but they went away within an hour. Several red bumps are left a few hours later. This was my last treatment for the abdomen, but I can pay $50 per treatment for the next year if I feel like I need follow up visits.
I plan to go see an electrologist soon. Maybe once I see if the hair on my abdomen grows back. I’ll probably have the electrologist finish up the details there as well as test their skills on other areas that are not easily visible to the world. Eventually, I want to have them work on my eyebrow area and any other stray hairs that have been appearing on my face/neck/chest/breasts.
This winter I’ll probably start LHR on my bikini/leg area and maybe even lower arms. Guess I better start saving up some money!!!
Well, good night for now and good luck to all!
