Well, I had my third laser treatment three weeks ago. I am being treated with the Lightsheer Diode on upper lip and chin, have type 2 skin and mostly dark hair. This last time around, I asked my tech to use compression, up the joules(32) and to not use the “glide” method but to go up and down with the laser…I am not TOO demanding.
She accomodated me nicely and further covered the same areas a few times.—I knew that my skin would look like hell afterward, but I also got some seriously good results. I had full shedding within ten days and this is the first time ALL of the dark hair and even the lighter brown and red hair fell out! By this time(three weeks post treatment) after my first two sessions, I would already have significant regrowth but I have VERY little this time around. It’s impossible to know if this would have happened anyway, despite aggressive technique or not, but just because of the cumlative results of lasering.
Anyway, I am still in the relative hairless phase and all I can say is, this was money well spent. I waited 20 plus years to look this good! I am keeping my fingers crossed that it will be permanent(ish).
