Hey there. I’ve had three treatments on my shoulders and back with an Alexandrite laser (Apogee) with only a slight reduction in the thickness of the hair. I’m a type II with dark hair, so almost ideal. About two months after the last treatment, I experience pimples on my shoulders which contained… almost baby hairs regrowing. Has anyone else experienced this?
I’m planning on trying the LightSheer with advanced laser clinics (seems to be a better deal). According to the medical research out there, there’s not that much difference between the two lasers, but I thought I’d give it a try.
I tried electrolysis about 5 years ago, but got terrible ingrown hairs and some small scars. They might have not know what they were doing, but it was a large clinic in an upscale part of Chicago, and I am a MD so I did my research on them.
I figure that I’m still young (30’s) so the hair is probably still going to keep growing on my shoulders, but hopefully with repeated treatments I can get some significant reduction. Any thoughts anyone?
Also, great site!! Very helpful, informative, and organized with good references to the medical literature! Thanks.
