I have been having the hair on my back, shoulders and upper arms treated. The spa where I have the treatments done keep switching laser types on me. I just had my 9th treatment and the history so far has been:
Sessions 1-2 - Ruby laser
Sessions 3-8 - NDYag
Session 9 - Epilight (? maybe Episheer, not quite sure)
Anyway, does anyone know if this will be effective or if I should be concerned? I’ve read quite a few posts on this board and haven’t seen this happen to anyone else. I have been seeing reduced hair growth, not total removal but patches and reduced growth.
Also, I posted a subject a while back regarding scarring. I am/was experiencing some discoloration on my back (not the temporary redness) since the 2nd treatment. It still hasn’t gone away. I can’t feel it, but I can see it in the mirror (i.e., not huge bulbous scars). Also, I am having severe problems now with back acne like I did when I was going through puberty and the hair first started growing. I was on Accutane around my 20’s (I am 30 now) and that cleared it up.
Can anyone PLEASE let me know if I should be concerned or if switching lasers is normal. I have seen my doctor and he said that it was temporary discoloration in my pigmentation, but all the posts I have read on this subject make it sound like it should have cleared up by now.
