Hi everyone, I’m new to this board. Have been posting on two other LHR boards, and just recently found this one. Thought that I would copy my other posts and paste them here for everyone to read…
Written April 13th:
Today is my 2nd treatment for underarm and abdomen, and 1st treatment for chin and upper lip with Sciton Image long pulse width Nd:YAG 1064 laser.
Upper lip - only a few painful spots, not even close to being as bad as my first time with underarms/abdomen.
Chin - definitely more painful than lip, but very bearable. Most pain felt in the areas concentrated with dark hair.
Could smell burning hair from both areas.
Underarms - definitely not as painful as the first time. Tech was impressed with the change in hair amount from the first session.
Abdomen - most painful area. Had to turn the amount down again.
Whole process took maybe 30 minutes.
Right after treatment:
Upper lip - only a few small areas that were red, otherwise could not tell anything was done. No soreness or burning sensation.
Chin - red all over. Looks like there is some swelling. Maybe some hair is already gone, or maybe the swelling is hiding them. Areas look like they were snapped with a rubber band - swelling with slight dark discoloration. A few hairs came off when I barely pulled at them. Area feels a bit sore.
Underarms - are quite red and feel sore, like they are burning a bit.
Abdomen - is quite red, also feels sore, like burning.
2 hours later:
Upper lip - not red at all, doesn’t seem like I had a treatment done.
Chin-A few small areas around hair follicles that are red. Can see some hair below the surface. Area is still swollen and slightly discolored like bruising. Does not feel painful, only on one side if I push on it. Keeping ice on the chin areas.
Underarms - feel less sore and burned. Several small areas around hair follicles that are red and bumpy. Some overall redness remains.
Abdomen is less red, but there are quite a few hair follicles that are red and bumpy.
Tech was nice and gave me a few free zaps on the area between my eyebrows. Doesn’t seem like anything was done. No redness or bumps. Hairs do feel a bit more coarse.
Okay, come on shedding!
