So here’s my story:
About two years ago I was getting electrolysis on my face in America, but I moved to Korea and couldn’t find that anywhere. So, after a year and a half or so, I decided on laser hair removal. I’ve been to 3 sessions spaced ~ 10 weeks from each other (GentleMax on the alexandrite settings, ~15 J) for my bikini line, underarms, a patch on the neck, around my navel, sideburns, and upper lip.
Anyway, the past few weeks I started re-researching laser treatment, and I noticed LAgirl’s comment about possible induced growth. Further research uncovered some disgruntled forum posters and an article (http://www.eblue.org/article/S0190-9622(05)00722-X/abstract), and now I am worried sick that I may have induced more growth on my face and neck.
I usually research my stuff really well before I do something, and I am seriously kicking myself that I didn’t this time. (Perhaps the technician tried to tell me not to do my face because he did mention that the hair was thinner than what was best, but I don’t know, lol. His clinic is reputable with both Korean and English speakers, and he speaks English well enough, but you would be amazed at what gets lost in translation anyway.)
The question is, do I continue with the recommended 3 or so more treatments on my face and take my chances since I already might have stimulated growth with my previous 3 treatments, or do I cease treatments on my face and wait a few months to see what the damage is? What would you guys do if you were in my shoes?
Thanks in advance
