scabbing after treatment! photos included.. is this normal??


It has been about 24 hours since I had my first LHR treatment with a LightSheer ET diode. I have a fair amount of scabbing, and my chest is still red with a fair amount of bumps. Please look at the photos and see if this is normal, or if I should be worried. If this is normal, about how long should it take for things to go back to normal? I was treated at 30J with a 30ms pulse.

photos can be seen here. The one labelled “1h” was 1 hour after treatment. The spots in that one are not scabs, but are brown spots that look like burnt hairs close up. The photo labelled “24h” was taken almost exactly 24 hours after treatment, and the spots in that one are scabs. In person, my chest is a lot more red than it appears in the photos.

I’m a bit worried – should I be, or is this pretty normal? Thanks!
