As promised, here are photos of my patient from the UK showing results of the (1-2-3) “Clear & Wait” technique. We are doing the third clearance right now, and at the end of the week I will submit all the details: hours for each clearance and real costs (in dollars).
Points of interest:
1) With a younger client (fellow is 20) who has fully developed terminal hairs (like this guy), the job may look more difficult but is actually easier. The reason he looks so dreadful is that the hairs are not staying in “exogen” for very long (hence the very dense hair). Such is the case with young people. This density gives you the opportunity to zap more visible hairs and thus makes the task easier in the long run.
2) Generally, a case (any age) that looks this bad is also easy and perfect for “Clear & Wait.” Again, as a general rule, the “oh my God” cases are pretty easy. Because this guy never lasered, waxed or shaved, the case is easier to predict.
3) As you can see, the results of the first Clearance were not so good (see photo #2). This is also common with younger “very hairy” people; I expected this and warned the client that he would think “nothing happened.” I also expected GREAT results after the second Clearance … and you can see results were pretty good (photo #3).
5) The most thick and dense areas are the areas that will remain 100% hair-free permanently ... forever. All the terminal hairs have grown in and now there are no more possibilities. (Notice, in the photos, that the most clear areas in photo #3 are the ones that were the most thick and dense to begin with.)
5) With this case, I do not anticipate the need for any “pick-up” sessions afterward. There will be scant hairs after this, but I doubt the guy will see any hairs. After this clearance, he should only consider “pick-up” work 6 months to a year after this final session. (He will be going to Scotland too!)
I hope this helps all my fellow “zapperettes!”
