Stephgold I dont understand how HRT is relevant to what happens post laser and at least hald my clientele arent even transgender. .What I can tell you is what I see is pretty consistent between myself and the experiences of the clients I've had who did laser beforehand.If they did laser, I see the delayed follicles coming back and it tends to stretch out electrolysis treatment because hairs we've never seen or treated before keep coming in for several years.

Except, I wont get anywhere near clearance for quite a while as there is just too much over the body and face for me to addrress so for her, it will take much longer than 18 months .This can be very hard on you emotionally, but stick with the process and the hair will be gone.

Ahhhh. I don’t know. You mentioned you are on HRT and I thought it was related to hair growth if the levels of hormone fluctuate if you go on or off therapy. I thought I read that in your post? Hmm I guess not judging by your response. I was asking if your laser patients are on HRT and if they aren’t then I guess I have a long road ahead of me.

If you get cleared every 4-6 weeks....... If you don't do ANYTHING that pulls out the hair while having electrolysis , then you will most likely finish and be happy in about 12-18 months. Electrolysis works, but it is not magical. Electrolysis cannot stop new hair from stimulating in the future. It cannot undo any weirdness to the hair growth cycles that laser reduction may have caused. Hair is a tough enemy. Hair is stealthy. Hair growth can be unpredictable. This is why we can't be cut and dry with answers to your excellent questions.

Your plan should be to patiently lay on the table and attack / punch out the bothersome hairs. Keep doing this until there are no bothersome hairs to punch. Let time pass and soon you will discover that your plan is working. You will know when it's time to stop because things will get boring. There will be no more bothersome hair to focus on anymore........... until Mother Nature decides to stimulate some new hair follicles???


See I agree. Bc there have been studies following laser patients about 3 years out and that’s all. We don’t know for sure if laser is the reason a person gets more hair or not. I mean it could be their own genetics. I wish someone could study when the effects of laser wears off. I know most need a “touch up” yearly.
