I had my first Lightsheer Diode Laser 4 days ago on my upper lip,chin and neck(light skin level 3 I think,with very black coarse hair)!! I had Emla on for an hour before and it helped alot. With the exception of the upper lip, that hurt like hell Also is it normal to get pimples in the treated areas? I was only told about whiteheads. Thanks
I have been in the Permanent Hair Removal Profession full time for 45 years: Please ask your laser practitioner to put into writing your hair will be permanently removed! They can’t but a good electrologist can. Please click to ElectrolysisInformation.com and read it carefully before you have further treatment.
I still don’t have any answers to my questions though.
And by the way>> this is a great site!! Keep up the good work everyone
Your experience is normal do not panic! What you are seeing is most likely singed hairs and they may take 2-4 weeks to work themselves out. The Lightsheer so throughly and deeply heats the hairs that they may stick in the follicle for awhile. You will not see regrowth in 4 days. Either the hairs were missed during treatment or they are working themselves out. Any regrowth will usually occur within 1-2 months.
It is not unusual to have some pimples after treatment. They’ll go away, don’t worry.
Thanks for the reply, that does make me feel better!!
