I am now 4 1/2 weeks post 5th treatment. For quick review:
-I am female, skin type II
-Having chin and upper lip treated
-Using Lightsheer Diode XC,12mm spot size
Between my 4th and 5th treatments I had significant regrowth by about 3 weeks!! I was UPSET to say the least, but the tech volunteered that it may just have been an usually strong growth period. well duh. Anyway, despite that anomaly, I soldiered on and was treated this last time at 40 joules, this was a slight increase over the last time (38 joules)and it hurt like h*ll, but I do not give a rip as long as it works. This time around I have almost NO regrowth…I am estimating I have 90% clearance on the chin, 80% on upper lip(hair is finer and lighter there–not responding quite as well).
Now, I assume I will see more hair in the next few weeks prior to session 6, but this is by far the best results I have seen since starting last Sept. insofar as remaining relatively hairless for a decent period of time.(over a month)
I purchased a six session pkg with one year guarantee. I will likely be using that one extra year, but I did have a very dense problem and chin hair is aggressive–maybe because of good blood supply…I dunno. I am still in wait and see mode, but I feel like this is going to work for me. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
