I had posted several questions last week that RJC2001 was able to answer for me (thanks RJC!). I do have another one… or two.
A week ago today I had my first lhr treatment on my arms and legs. I am skin type IV, the lightsheer diode laser was used and the setting was 30 joules. I did get some hair growth starting the next day and I have shaved once since the treatment. I’m noticing that I seem to have a lot more “bumps” than I would normally get. It looks like ingrowns but could these just be tombstones that will shed? Some of the hair does pull out if I gently tug on it. I haven’t yanked any out by force. I know I’m being a bit impatient but it’s difficult to just sit around and wait when you’re not sure what’s going on.
Also, what setting would you recommend for me? I was told that for my next treatment the joules would be increased by a few. Would that be strong enough? My reaction to the last treatment was not that bad. I had red dots and bumps around a lot of the pores. The redness went away after a couple of days. It didn’t seem that bad.
Note: I have thick black hair on most my legs and arms.
