So after 3 consultations and frantically searching the web, I have finally started laser treatment on my underarms!
I’m being treated with a YAG (HP Synchro Laser) and have type IV skin. On my patch test she tested at 45J and today I think I saw 40J on the sheet but can’t confirm.
First treatment went well, it was painful - more so on my left side for some reason but it was over so fast I was in complete shock she managed to do the whole area. The machine is quite good because it blasts cold air (or water I don’t know) so it doesn’t hurt TOO much but still enough for my muscles to tighten!
I am not too sure what to expect now though, I have booked my next treatment for about 5 weeks and at the moment I still have all the hair there that she treated today - is that correct or should it have been zapped off? She said that the hair would shed in around 2-3 weeks. Afterwards I had a burning sensation but that has calmed down now and it’s been 3 hours since the treatment.
Is there anything I should be looking out for?
