I am currently having laser hair removal on my chest, stomach, shoulders and underarms. I am a male of Indian origin. The laser my therapist uses is the ND YAG laser.
After my second treatment, there was a small line of hair remaining just under my right nipple, which I only noticed after the shedding process. I do not shave in between treatments. I only shave once before each treatment.
I was a bit concerned about this line of hair, as it looked like my therapist may have missed this section. When I started getting regrowth, this line of hair became less noticeable, as it blended in with my regrowth.
After my third treatment, the line of hair is still there but it’s not as bad as before. However, this time I also have another line of hair by my belly button and a few other lines, which I have only noticed after the shedding process.
I am concerned that these are untreated areas. What do you think I should do? I showed my therapist who said that these lines of hair will go away after more treatments, but I feel I should I have them redone now before my next treatment to help even it out. I do not want to be left with obvious lines of hair.
Please have a look at the photograph I have attached, which shows the line of hair after my third treatment, which I had about 16 days ago. I am due my fourth treatment in over two weeks time.
Any help/suggestions will be most appreciated, as I have been very worried about this. I am aiming to still have some hair in these areas and not complete hair removal, and so I don’t want to end up with lines of hair. However, if my regrowth becomes very soft and fine hair, then I guess the lines of ‘untreated’ areas will be less obvious, which I could live with, but I wouldn’t like to have what you can see in the photograph.
