Here are a few questions: I recently began laser facial hair removal at a plastic surgeon’s office in La Jolla, California. At about “level 35” (don’t recall the unit of measure), it was pretty painful, even with the topical anaesthetic. But it’s no big deal - I could take it.
My question is: It took me about a week to two weeks for my face to heal from the procedure, and all seems to be well. After the first treatment, my beard is significantly reduced. I am going to go back about 5 or 6 more times, spaced out ever 4 weeks. My question is this: I have been recently squeezing hairs out of my face much like I would squeeze a blackhead out. It seems that many dead hairs are lodged in the follicle, and that they come out just like a blackhead. Is this normal? What’s going on?
