Hey all ,
Today I am back with a more recent update. I am now on session 9 on my upper body and session 7 on my legs, as the legs are every 8 weeks rather than every 4 weeks on the upper body. Last week I was back for my 9th session of upper body only.
Prior to having treatment , your therapist always asks about your thoughts on the reduction. Which up until my last appointment I had been saying 60% , which is amazing after 8 sessions. Four weeks after my last appointment I can definitely see another 10% of reduction again. Now seeing a good 60-70% reduction of hair in most areas. You can of course shave in between your appointments if needed , but I actually never need to which is amazing, considering before I started laser, I would have shaved four times a week or more. I only shave the night prior to my appointment now. The hair that does grow back though, is very light and only grows back in certain areas. This is where the multiple treatments come into play with the hair growth cycles.
Between my last session in December and the 5th of January , I haven’t seen a major difference in results but in saying that this can happen as is all about catching the hair in the right cycle. I have also been on a couple of different tablets over the last couple of weeks and a little stressed too, which can all impact on your results. But Iv just had mt 9th session of upper body and will be back in 8 weeks with another update.
Pain wise , I have to admit the thinner the hair is getting the nippier the treatment is. Pain wise would be a 4/5 depending on the area . The hollywood and underarms are definitely a lot more sensitive than the forearms and legs. On the legs I always find the ankles much worse than the legs themselves.
Ingrown hairs , If you have been following my laser hair removal journey from the start , you’ll know I suffered really bad with ingrown hairs to the point where I needed antibiotics. They where causing me so much discomfort and left me with some horrible marks on my legs, which you can see from the pic below.
Since starting my laser hair removal journey. I have only had three ingrown hairs which is amazing. I am back next month for my 10th upper body session and 8th session on the legs , so stayed tuned for my next update .
