I had my first laser tx 4.5 weeks ago. I am fair skinned with brown hair and had underarms, lower legs and brazilian bikini done. I’ve posted before that I’ve noticed NO shedding what-so-ever. At no point did I have any hair-free areas. My hair grew like normal after the treatment. What I do notice is that the hair does seem to be somewhat less dense. Could I have “shedded” immediately after treatment and the hair that grew right afterwards (only a day or so after treatment) be new growth?
I can’t figure this out. If I haven’t noticed any shedding, had hair growth right after treatment, could treatment still have worked? Something had to have happened since the hair is less dense. Also, the treatment was very painful, so I know something was happening. In fact, she asked me if I had a high pain tolerance because she was using very high settings (it was extremely painful – I guess I hid it well!).
Blink888 – any ideas? You’ve graciously helped me out before.
BTW, my next treatment is in 1.5 weeks. Thanks.
