Hi everyone. Have posted before about my LHR all be it a while ago now. Ive had 9 treatments so far with a pretty old Lightsheer system, and am going to start new treatments with a gentle max in about 2 weeks. Im just looking for opinions and advice really on what you guys think so far. Ive basically been having lots of problems with patchy regrowth pretty much ever since day 1 of treatments. So the new techs i am seeing now and myself basically decided to wait a while to let it all grow and then re start treatments from there. So ive been waiting now for about 7 or 8 months which is probably far too long, but im pretty sure now that whats grown is all that is going to in any major way at least. Here are some pics for everyone.
It probably doesnt look too bad to most, but the areas with growth are still dark enough to leave obvious patches even if i shave it. The real problem i have which is one of the main reasons i had the treatment in the first place is that i get very bad folliculitis every time i shave my head, even with the growth that is left and it is really stopping me from shaving my head. Now i am stuck in a very depressing position where i dont feel like i can shave my head and i cant go out in public without a hat looking like i do. Im just hoping that more treatments with a better machine will get rid of some of it. I was looking into electrolysis and still am. I did find someone here in the UK by the name of Sheila Godfrey who has published books on electrolysis and she seems to be held in quite high regard. Unfortunately i have been unable to contact her as of yet.
Does anyone have any suggestions ? Would laser still be able to treat these hairs. Originally i was told by my first tech that i would need about 6 or so treatments. But the people i am with now say for the head it is more around the 15 mark.
