I had my chin lasered for the first time a week ago but didn’t shave/pluck beforehand so they are getting pretty long. The doctor has told me to wait at least 4 days, preferably a week before shaving, etc again but i just wanted to see if anyone has any comments on this?
I usually tweezer them out as i was told previously that its worse to shave, is this correct?

You CANNOT pluck or wax etc during treatments. That defeats the purpose and you would be wasting your money. Also, even if you didn’t shave, which they should have done before treatment, wasn’t the hair burned off by laser? What color is your hair? I find it surprising that all the hair just stayed there unless it’s blond. Shaving is absolutely fine. It doesn’t affect the treatments or the root of the hair in any way. What machine was used? What settings? It sounds like the person treating you is a bit misinformed or you’re misunderstanding something.
Also, can you post this in a new thread? This thread is for FAQs.

I was told that the hair falls out after about 2 weeks of the laser treatment and is not immediate. I am a redhead but the hair is dark brown/black mainly. I’ll find the sheet and let you know the machine and settings as the doctor gave a sheet with all the information on it. Please excuse the time difference etc. as i am in New Zealand not America.
Thank you Rustie xx
