Thanks for your input, Biker.
It makes sense. A waxed follicle probably provides a smaller target for the laser. But that’s a good thing though, from what I was thinking.
From my understanding:
- A follicle in it’s growth stage probably provides the largest target for destruction.
- A follicle that is ‘not’ in it’s growth stage probably provides a smaller target, so may end up only getting ‘damaged’ (but not ‘destroyed’), resulting in that “finer regrowth”, which is difficult to destroy.
So, I was trying to figure out a way to ‘minimize’ the damage to follicles that are ‘not’ in their growth stage - to avoid that “finer regrowth”. That way, when these follicles do enter their growth stage, they’re as thick as they always were (or reasonable close), & ready to be zapped next time.
Hope my understanding is correct. Not sure. …
I’ll try & get my butt down for a consult soon.
