N333 what parts of your face did you have lasered? you mean you had laser treatments to emove yourl ight peach fuzz and turned into terminal hair or that you had laser hair removal on your upper lip for example, and the peach fuzz on your cheeks turned into thick, coarse hair?
as i have posted again in this forum, a had a similar side effect. it is seems that growing more hair after LHR is a very common side-effect especially when treatments are performed on the face, on fine hair. i can point out at least 50 people who suffer from the same. my electrologist’s office is full of women who have grown more hair than ever after their facial laser treatments! i am trying to figure out why it is happening. i must also add that not only did i get more hair, darker and coarser on areas treated but also areas of my face where i had no hair at all and where i had no LHR have started to grow hair! i guess it must be the heat which is spread on the skin stimulating more hair growth? but shouldnt the same happen with thermolysis?
dfahey, i am still researching the possibility of fat loss and premature aging due to lasers, but i have not come to a conclusion yet. most people think i am crazy. the dermalogists i have visited told me that a gentlase alexandrite laser does not have the possibility to penetrate that deep in the fat layers and also my electrologist told me that my follicles are very shallow and my hair are thin and the laser could not have penetrated that deep. if the laser did, then an electrolysis probe would need to go that deep too.
however, i have come across some people in the www.makemeheal.com forum who have suffered fat loss from various laser procedures on the face and especially a girl who have had hair removal with IPL Lumenis.
i really dont know what to believe. but i am convinced that laser is not good for our skin. all that radiation and heat generated could possibly change our skin underneath and accelerate the natural aging process in a way similar to extreme sun exposure.
another electrologist told me that thermolysis heats skin too and that heat is dispersed to a wider area, than lasers, but i am not an expert and i cannot say if it’s true.
