Still Smooth One Month After Last Laser Treatment
It has been nearly a month since my third laser hair removal treatment and
my skin is still very smooth.
The missed spots that had to be re-treated shed completely and are extremely smooth. I actually think those spots are smoother than the other areas. Those spots were treated at 14J instead of 12J. I don't seem to have any pepperspots in those re-treated areas either!
My upper-lip has a lot of blond hairs growing back but no black ones. If you click on the first picture you can see the blond hairs. I am very happy with the laser hair removal results on my upper-lip.
My underarms area also having great results. There is some finer hair growth, but very little. I still haven't shaved any of the areas since the last treatment. The few hairs that have grown back in my underarms are soft and a light brown.
My bikini area is pretty smooth. There is some hair growth in the center of my bikini area. (This hair is coarse and dark.) I also have a few hair growing around the edges of the bikini area, but this is light and soft.
The one problem that I have with my bikini area is pepperspots. I have scrubbed and exfoliated, but I cannot get them to go away. I was told that by not shaving until the shedding process was over that I would have less pepperspots. This is the first time I have had pepperspots and the first time I didn't shave. I'm not sure if not shaving is the reason I have pepperspots, but I will shave next time and see what happens.
Overall I am happy with my laser hair removal treatment progress. I am looking forward to the results after my next treatment, which isn't until late November. I was considering calling to have the medical director look over my case to see if I could skip the 14J and go straight to 16J, but I don't think I will. I seem to have good results from 12J and really great results from the spots treated at 14J. I understand there is some controversy about low settings causing the hair to grow in thinner and lighter, which makes it untreatable, but I am okay with that. I would rather have thin blond hair than burn marks.
