Some Hair Growth After Fifth Laser Treatment
It has been ten days since my fifth laser hair removal treatment. With the prior treatments the shedding started on the 8th day, but I haven't seen any signs of shedding yet. I'm hoping this is because there is so little hair to shed, I just can't see it.
I was very surprised to see how little hair grew back after my fifth appointment. There is very little hair in my bikini area. My underarms haven't needed shaving since my treatment, and my upper lip looks completely hair free. I hope that these are permanent results.
I am afraid that a lot of the hair that isn't growing back is in a dormant growth phase, so it was not effected by the laser treatment. I know that I did not have a lot of hair before the treatment, but I had more than seems to be growing back.
I guess the only thing to do is wait. Wait until the shedding is complete, and wait until the hair begins to grow back. If there isn't much hair growing by my next appointment I may postpone it. I'm not sure. I'll have to do more research on this, but I believe it may be good to increase the week intervals in between laser hair removal appointments after you have had several appointment.
In the meantime, I am extremely please with my results. Not having to shave my underarms or bikini area saves me so much time, and it prevents the razor burn! I have had some small ingrown hairs, but nothing like before. These small pimple like ingrown hairs usually fade in a day or two.
AND I haven't touched my lip hair, and no one notices. That is one of my biggest hopes for laser hair removal, not having any 'well-meaning' person give me advice on how to remove my man-stash!
