I have read that women experience lazer hair induced growth on the face and men on he back and shoulders. However reading across forums I had read that that it can occur in other areas.

Which area exactly can lazer induced hair growth occur on a women. I had a lazer induced hair growth on my face but hoped to treat underarms, full bikini and lower legs and lower arms. What are people's thoughts? Would this be a big risk?

Where have people had lazer induced growth?

On women laser is risky on the face, but legs, bikini and underarms are not known to pose risk of hair stimulation. In fact, you can get very good results with laser on those areas. I had 2 female coworkers complete their laser group-on on underarms and legs, they are very happy with the results.

I'm going to argue this one fenix. The most pronounced cases of laser stimulation I have seen are on women with darker skin tones such as indian or pakistani who have done laser. And then, it hasnt mattered where they did laser, it was a thick dark carpet afterwards.Laser stimuation can hapen anywhere there is vellus hair, and that includes the arms for most women.
I have a client with exactly this situation for 5 hours this weekend.

This is an example of laser hair stimulation. This is a pre-picture. I had already worked on the upper part of her face, which was as bad as the lower part. This occurred about 8 weeks after she had laser reduction. Her hair problem was never this bad, until laser was done. She is 95% finished . She has had 36 hours and 10 minutes of electrolysis (PicoFlash) and 28,137 insertions have been done to this date .



I will post another picture when I see her this Friday. She would have been finished by now, but there was tweezing done in between appointments and some micro-managing on which hairs to treat and which hairs to ignore and not allowing full clearance every time, which hampered me getting her finished much sooner.

I don't recommend laser reduction on women's faces. I have seen many cases like this young woman's disaster . I have asked several laser specialists if they caution women BEFORE they treat their faces, that this could happen and invariably, they all tell me, that laser does not cause this. I'm absolutely puzzled. The clients says laser did cause this.

So what does she look like now? Is her face free of hair? Is her skin intact?

Yes, to your last question. Her skin is beautiful. That is why I posted the second picture, which is more than six months after beginning treatment. Magnify it, if you will and see for yourself. I will post another picture Friday after I see her.

Thank you for your replies!

I apologise that I wrote I've read some women experience lazer induced hair, this actually was the case with myself on my face and neck. So Dee I abolutely applaud your work! I thankfully was saved with electrolysis and a good preactitioner... and my skin wasn't ruined but I wouldn't say it's the same.

So I know NO lazer on the face, neck or arms!

I'm assuming bikini and underarm area is ok due to the lack of vallus hair?

Dee please make sure that photo doesnt expire from photobucket if you could please, I used it just this afternoon to explain paradoxal laser hair stimulation to a young middle eastern woman who had a few ipl treatments and thankfully stopped and made todays consultation with me.

I'm beginning to think we need a standard image gallery here at hairtell where we can easily refer folks to images we like to use a lot, for example, some of josephas photos, I remember one where she did all the egg white test on different size probes, but it's gone. laser hair stimulation might be another, hyperpigmentation another, ice pick scars another . I think hairtell loses some of this information in the "static" .

Leave your head work to an electrologist, is my belief, however, I have had clients tell me they got a good reduction with laser for their face, but they were seeking out my servicies for electrolysis because laser could not "SEE" all the hair they wanted removed. So, why not start and finish with the electrologist for head work?

I'm a big, tall, nimble cheerleader for laser on the the lower arms, lower legs, bikini area, man chest, lower abdomen and underarms, IIIIFFFFFFF the client is a good candidate and the laser specialist is skilled. Electrolysis would still get the job done, but there are not enough electrologists that want to do marathon sessions.
