I treated my face with Lightsheer before, 5 times. I got great results on my cheeks and neck, but horrid results on my chin and upper lip.
I have very very dark black hair which is very very coarse. I have white skin.
I spoke to my laser technician about the patchiness, she recommended I switch to Alexandrite, and so I did for my last (6th) treatment.
She told me she used lower intensities, but I could swear it didnt hurt any less. I was skeptical about her using low intensities, but she told me everything should be fine since my upper lip and chin are so coarse and dark.
Well it’s been 2 weeks since my Alexandrite treatment, and NOTHING fell off from my face. No shedding, nothing. Usually some hairs will slip out easily after I tug at them following a successful treatment, but not this time. Hair is still growing, and it seems to grow somehat faster than before.
Please tell me what I should do next. My face is very patchy, and even worse now since the hairy parts are even darker and there is more contrast. Should I go back to lightsheer? Even with lightsheer the bottom of my chin was not shedding at all. Should I ask for higher energies? But if I will still get patchy results should I try again on the Alexandrite? Alexandrite gave me excellent results on my legs, but so far nothing at all on my face.
