Hi. This is my first post here.
I had my first ever laser hair removal treatment at Brandeis Medical in LA two weeks ago.
I am starting with a brazilian bikini. I have very fair skin and dark, coarse hair, so I think I am a perfect candidate.
I opted to buy the numbing cream and applied it about an hour before my treatment. The laser she (the nurse) used was a diode coolglide lightshear, I think. It blew cool air the whole time she was lasering me. The numbing cream helped a lot, I think, as it wasn’t too terribly painful, although it was a little bit in certain areas. The brazilian bikini consists of just about everything “down there” including the peri-anal area.
The only number I remember is that we set it to 40. Next time, she said, we will try 50.
I am experiencing shedding already, which I am very pleased about. I plan on making my next appointment for about four weeks from now.
The shedding that I am experiencing is that I can simply pick out the hair that’s growing back. Is that shedding? Is there a way to make the shedding process easier? Is there any advice or any tips anyone can give me as I start my process?
