Lots of Dark Hair Growth
I have had an enormous amount of hair growth in the last week. It is still thinner than before my treatment, but it is now visible and I've had to shave my underarms.
My upper lip has lots of long dark hairs. It isn't as dense as before I started treatments, but it is noticeable. Fortunately, I still have another five laser treatments, so I hope to see better results.
I am very happy with the progress in my underarms. Even though I had to shave, the hair is softer and easier to shave. I took these photographs after several days of not shavings, so the hair is growing back slowly. There is a lot less hair that before the treatments. Even if my underarm hair remained as it is now I would be happy with the laser treatments. Although, I do hope for it to be so fine and light that I don't have to shave at all, at least I can now shave without pain, ingrown hairs and razor burn.
I have not shaved my bikini area. You can see in the pictures that there is a lot of long dark hair in the bikini area. The hair isn't nearly as dense as before the laser treatments. It seems that the hair in the center of my bikini area is the thickest. Overall, I am very happy with the results in my bikini area. I can't wait until I can be in the sun again and wear swimsuits without feeling self-conscious about my bikini line!
My next laser hair removal treatment is November 27. It is suppose to be at 14J, but I think I would like to increase the energy to 15J. This is at an 18mm spot size on the Candela GentleLase.
