I'm currently undergoing laser hair removal for my lower legs. The clinic I go to uses the Lightsheer Diode. All I know about the settings is that they increase by two with each treatment. First treatment was 18, 20, then 22 for my third. I'm not sure if the settings are high enough because I haven't had much shedding with the previous two treatments. At least not enough to notice a difference, but I'm keeping in mind I've only had three treatments thus far.

During the treatments, I do feel snapping. I also have redness that subsides within a few hours and some bumps around the follicles that subside within a few days.

I have type 1 skin, as pale as Casper and very dark, coarse hair. Most of my follicles on my lower legs have 2 hairs in each, some even have 3 so the growth is quite fierce. I'm also wondering if that has anything to do with why I'm not seeing immediate progress.

I'm waiting the next few weeks to see how successful the third session was. Does this sound like a normal experience, or should I tell her to up the settings next time that I go in? I've tried researching Diode settings and I'm not finding any definitive answers.

If anyone has any advice, that would be helpful.

Hey. I'm trying to get rid off unwanted hairs on my upper cheek and belly area. The machine she (laser technician) uses is called Cynosure. Alexandrite. She hit me at 14J in first session now it's 18. My face becomes completely smooth after 2 weeks. Every hair fall off but I can't tell the same thing for my belly, at least for first 2 sessions. I have white skin and dark hair too. 2-3 hairs per follicle on some areas. After 3rd session I started to see results on my belly area. She said it from the beginning that they'll reduce to one or disappear completely. It's about luck I guess. It's definitely not like my face but still an improvement so you'll be seeing results in next few weeks. I went for 4th session today
