I think I have quit shedding.  The entire shedding process took 8 days. Although I did have a few hairs in my underwear today, so I could be off by a day or two.

I donąt believe as much hair fell out this time as last time.  I donąt feel as smooth as I did after my first laser hair removal treatment.  I wonder if this is because the technician didnąt turn up the Candela GentleLASE to 12J.

If you look at the photos you can see there is still lots of hair in my bikini line even though I shaved two days ago.  My underarms are pretty smooth, but not nearly as smooth as after the first treatment.

My upper lip is patchy.  I donąt think any spots were missed.  I think the treatment just didnąt work as well this time.

I may have been a little harsh by saying the treatment isnąt working well this time.  Now that the hair is starting to grow back I can tell that it is thinner than before.  The hair deeper inside my bikini area is still very thick. Iąm not sure if this is because that hair wasnąt treated the first time or because the technician didnąt zap the area well.   I still believe she should have followed the Brazilian waxing pose.  (One leg up and the other bent sideways.)

The skin deep inside my bikini area is a little irritated.  I believe this is because the hair is growing back and it is pricking my skin.  The rest of the hair in my bikini area is thin, but still black.  My bikini area actually feels soft, but you can see lots of hairs growing again.

My underarms are very soft, but I can still see some hair.  It has been 8 days since I shaved, and I can wear sleeveless shirts without any concern. However, if I look closely I can see some hair growing.

My upper lip also has hair growing.  It is mostly on the right lower side of my upper lip.  The hairs are small and spread out, so I still have faith in the treatments.
