Thankyou again for your last reply sslhr.
The reason why I ask about the permanence regarding hair that have become finer is that I fear that maybe my hairs will become coarse again and I will have to undergo hair removal treatment again. I got so many negative side effects from my last treatment in february this year.
The settings were to hight and I got blisters, scabbing and ingrowns…I got only a few ingrowns before the last treatment, but after the last treatment when my skin got burned and swelled I got so many! Some of the ingrowns I got right away, on my upper back, just a few days after the treatment when my skin was newly damaged and these became hard aching bumps which now 6,5 moths later are smaller and painless but still there - hard bumps under the skin. The other ingrowns I got at the time of the next regrowth 2 months after the treatment. These are more like inflamed marks with hair in them, they are mostly on my arms but also on my back and legs. Also some weeks ago I got one more of those hard bumps on my upper back. And not only that, I have many hyperpigmented marks on my back and legs from the burns and blisters. They were much darker in the beginning so they have faded, but now it’s like they have stopped becoming better. I got one such mark may of 2005 (1 year and 3-4 months ago) and that one can still be detected although it has improved a lot, so I don’t know how long it will take for the marks to totally resolve - if they ever will.
I also got hypopigmentation from three deep blisters.
The last treatment really messed me up and I couldn’t do my studies because I was so depressed and I didn’t pass the term - I’m now reading the same term again.
Have you seen the kind of ingrowns forming hard bumps under the skin? And if you have, is your experience that they will resolve or will they remain as they are?
So after all that money and mental stress I hope that atleast the hairs wont grow coarse again. If I didn’t get side effects like some people I wouldn’t worry because then I could just buy and undergo another treatment if I thought that the hairs had become to coarse.
Of course I know I will not get hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation if settings are used that don’t burn my skin.
But even without the burns I hate the ingrowns. I hate the thought of having something insoluble in my skin and the marks and dots they create. And the big inflamed ingrowns that become hard bumps left some hyperpigmentation too.
It’s like a ask and ask just to get a word of hope so that I can feal better. Crazy.
So, now it’s 6,5 months for me. I hope this means my hairs will remain thinner as long as possible. Although when I remember how thick they were before I imagine that my body is good at repairing hair follicles, like it is meant to have extremely coarse hair. But that’s just my thoughts.
Now on my chest I can clearly see that old hairs are shedding (I see them in the washbowl) and new hairs are growing in in their place, short small hairs. So the hairs are completing one hair cycle. Maybe this is the time when I will see if the partially damaged hair follicles have been repaired by the body and the hairs will grow out to be coarse again. Although right now they seem thin and are growing slowly. But maybe it will happen gradually, in two or three hair cycles.
If anyone has first hand experience of their hair becoming finer, please write about your long term outcome. Did it revert? Has it remained fine?
Sorry for nagging about this!
