Is this normal?

Hello all! I have been lurking on this forum for a while, trying to figure out the best option for my terrible hair growth that I have been dealing with for over 20 years. I have decided to start laser hair removal and then do electrolysis on whatever is still present.

I have read the old threads and the FAQ and didn’t see an answer to this specific question, so I decided to ask.

I had a Gentlelase treatment on my chin last Tuesday. I was a little swollen and sore Wed-Fri, and after the swelling went down, it seemed like the hair grew and was very black (I think this was the burnt hair), so I shaved on Saturday. There was a little stubble again on Sunday, so I shaved again. More stubble today. Is this normal? It seems like the growth has significantly slowed down, but it really does seem to be growing still. Is this just the shedding? I thought that wasn’t going to happen for a little while?

Thanks for any insight you can provide!

Yes, it’s normal. The hair is growing out to shed. It takes 3 weeks.

Thanks so much!
