hi… i had my first laser treatment exactly 3 weeks ago on my full face (cheeks, sideburns, upper lip, chin and neck.) i am very happy with my results so far. i have shed just about all the hair, but there is a small spot on my chin that didnt get zapped well enough.
i’m not sure which laser it was, it was either the gentlelase or lightsheer? i dont know what type skin i have but its basically fair with dark hair. i burn in the sun then it fades into a tan.
how much longer will it be before i will see hair growth? (like i said it’s been three weeks.) i do shave that tiny patch where there’s hair but other than that i dont have to shave at all. it’s very smooth. i have an appointment for approx 7 weeks after first treatment and want to know when will the next batch of hair be growing in and will it be as thick as it was before laser?
i know you are supposed to avoid sunlight after treatment, but for how long? and do i have to avoid the sun during the entire course of my treatment? (as in, months and months, until my 6 or 8 treatments are done?) i am planning a vacation in feb and will be getting some sun. i do NOT want to cancel my vacation (havent had one in many years)
i think that’s it really. there were several questions there and i know i can call and ask my tech but i havent had time and now its thanksgiving! i will definitely talk to her about this stuff also, but thought you guys could help me out in the mean time.
thank you very much, this forum has beend very helpful!
