I have reviewed several of the threads on this topic and now its my turn to post. As many said, it is unfortunate I did not find this site prior to my treatment’s start but glad I am here now.
I am 27, caucasian but of italian descent so fairly dark. I had horrendous time shaving so I finally decided to move forward with laser. I am currently undergoing treatment with a very reputable facility that is under the care of a doctor and is one of the top facilities in Atlanta. I have had 3 full treatments with I believe a GentleLASE along with “touch-ups” in between sessions. My operator has done a proper job of spacing the treatments 4-6 weeks apart with touchups typically 3 weeks in. The beard was doing well but far from gone until full session 3 when all of the sudden, patches took over my chin. As I am sure it is a big deal for everyone, this is driving me insane as I have a profession where appearences are a large concern and this has driven me to use concealer to try and cover up the darkness. 2 pics are attached.
Last week, I brought this to the operator’s attention (last Monday) and she hit the 2 main trouble spots on the sides of my chin again. Its a bit better but obviously, still very noticeable. My next slated appointment is about 3 weeks from now or 4 weeks from touchup and apprx 6 or 7 weeks from last full treatment. What is the reccomended move from here? My thoughts are to basically just have her hit the trouble areas and my neck until it evens out and to ignore the rest of the face as I feel that would only add to my problems. Any advice or suggestions would be excellent!
