So I had my second laser appointment last Thursday and Saturday - essentially everything from the bellybutton down to my toes.
I have been a little queasy and really tired all week - and my personal training session last night didn’t go very well. I had eaten enough calories, but for some reason I got really tired really quickly and then got dizzy, very similar to when I haven’t eaten enough calories.
The only thing that makes sense to me is that it is related to the laser hair removal. My guess is that it is two-fold… the laser essentially gives a deep down sunburn and my body is trying to deal with that, as well as all of the broken hair follicles that my body is trying to repair. So I have put my body into overdrive trying to repair itself after the laser procedure, and dealing with the toxins of a sunburn.
-I probably should add that the laser hair removal went fine, my legs were red for a couple hours, but were okay when I woke up the next morning. They were sensitive (very much like a sunburn) until Wednesday morning - and my personal training session was Wednesday evening). So I have no doubt that the procedure was performed correctly, there was no scarring, no burns, nothing…-
Does this make sense to anyone? Has anyone experienced something like this? How long does it last? And any suggestions for getting through a tough personal training hour during this time?
