Greetings. I have light skin, darker hair, and I have been getting treatments on my chest and stomach recently. The technician is using 34 jules (I think that’s the measurement) and I think she’s using the light-shear. I get treatments every six weeks. I seem to find that within a week of a given treatment, my hair is significantly decreased (to a greater degree each time). However, right about week 5, I feel that the hair is starting to grow back, and becomes thicker again. The reason I suspect this is because during weeks 2 - 4, I can easily shave my chest and stomach, about once every 3 days, and it’s effortless, shows NO razor burn, and leaves a 100% smooth surface. Right about week five, I notice razor burn coming back, and I feel the hairs are coming back after lying dormant.
The same happened to me on my face. The same technician gave me about 7 treatments on my face spaced 6 weeks apart. Every treatment, I seemed to notice more and more shedding. The same pattern ensued - between weeks 2 and 5, I found a dramatic reduction in the hair. However, it has all seemed to “grow back” (I stopped the face treatments because they were too painful - the chest and stomach are very tolerable).
Please let me know if a) the technician is not doing her job, or b) if I have some sort of very stubborn hair, or c) if this is a known problem, and I have to just stick with it. Thanks!
