I had to take a break from electrolysis for a month. Some was necessary, due to the surgery. Some was because of preparing for the surgery and work I had no time.
So a friend recommended a laser practitioner a while back and I thought I would try it.
I’ve had one treatment and I’m rather ambivalent about the results. There are things I liked about it and things that I didn’t.
Things I liked -
The treatment process was much more to my liking. They have you go in at least 1-2Hrs before your scheduled treatment. They give you a room, and have you apply the topical and plastic wrap to the area. I brought my laptop as they have a wireless network and I could get some work done. With my electro, I applied the topical at home and had to drive to her location that way.
The treatment was not as painful. Maybe it was the expanded application of the topical, maybe because it just didn’t hurt as much.
My whole face was treated in less than a half hour. My conditioning from electro helped here. Things progress faster when you don’t flinch. I was used to that and had no problems with the treatment.
I didn’t have to let the hair grow out. I could shave the day of and not be a hairy monster.
Things I didn’t like -
The treatment didn’t seem as effective. I shed a bunch of hairs for the first few days but haven’t lost much since then. When an area was treated with electro, it was completely clear for at least a week.
Maybe it’s the beast I am used to but I found the first few days post laser to be hard to hide. With electro I could treat the swelling and the redness.
any comments appreciated
