I believe I am seeing some new growth of fine hair in ares adjacent to the laser treatment on the nape of my neck.
Also, I want hair reduction on other areas of my body, but the hair is much coarser there and I fear it will hurt even more than my nape. I am a male with type II/III skin and I was treated with the Candela GentleLase Plus at the following settings and dates:
18mm spot / 16 J 1/19/2004
15mm spot / 26 J 2/22/2004
18mm spot / 20 J 4/17/2004
18mm spot / 20 J 5/26/2004
15mm spot / 30 J 7/22/2004
I used no pain relievers. Should I try a different type of laser and practicioner, perhaps with additional pain relief? Should I switch to electrolysis for my nape and surrounding areas, or for everything? Has anyone else here experienced the triggered hair growth side effect, and how did you resolve it?
