increased fluence on subsequent treatments?


#1

I had my first treatment with a lightsheer diode about 2 months ago, and my second treatment is coming up soon. Should i EXPECT for the practitioner to increase the fluence for this second visit? The first was at 30J, was somewhat painful, and i had scabs for 4-5 days after the treatment. I also had a lot of shedding, although most of it has grown back by now. Painwise I could take a higher fluence, so would it be a good idea to try something higher? if so, any suggested range?

thanks.

Chest, but i’ve heard that scabbing is pretty normal with the lightsheer diode…
