I’ve had hair removal done twice to my arms with the Lightsheer system. The first time was at 30 jouls, the second at 40.
One month to the day of my last treatment, I began to get broken blood vessels in the area that was treated. They would start out as painful raised bumps the size of a quarter, and then would spread out causing circular bruises that were about 3" in diamater. My arms were covered with them. The broken blood vessels continued for about two weeks before stopping. It took about 6 weeks for all the bruising to go away.
I paid for three treatments, and am very leary to get the last one done, even though I think I need it. The doctor’s office where it was done tells me they’ve never heard of this type of reaction before, and my own doctor ran tests and determined nothing else was wrong with me that could possible cause this.
Has this happened to anyone else? I’ve also had hair removal in other areas without a problem.
