Newbie Question

I recieved my first laser treatment last Thursday (5 days ago) Type 2 don’t remember which laser, I’ll ask next time I go in.I am having my lower legs done.

I was hoping for a little help from you all <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" />

During the treament I smelled burning hair which is supposed to be a good thing, right? I did have a lot of ingrown hairs though. Normally I shave at least once a day,sometimes twice as I have (patchy) but thick fast growing hair on most of my lower legs. For 2 days after I had no growth and didn’t have to shave until Sunday night! However now the growth feels really coarse and stiff. Is this normal? and how does shedding occur? 1-3 weeks but noticably? and will I not notice the shedding as much since I am continuing to shave?

Right after the treatment and until the hair sheds, it will look like the hair is more coarse and stiff. That’s normal and a good sign. Shedding usually takes 2-3 weeks.
