If the clinic knows how to use LightSheer well (it's more difficult to use) and is using good settings, it's definitely fine to stick with it.

What would be good setting for the second treatment? They started with 25J.
And.. as about half of the hair shed I am not sure if they know how to use Lightsheer well. ALthough I might try to advise them on pressing the spot against the skin which would be awkward..

Compression is important, i.e. using the up-and-down method and pressing each time.

They should test your skin and see what your skin can handle safely above 25J. 25J should be the minimum they should use. We can't really advise how high you can go. This is something that they need to test your skin for.

Time to share my experience again.

I had my second LHR treatment with Lightsheer 7 weeks ago on lower legs and bikini line. I saw almost a complete shedding on both lower legs and bikini line. But now, 7 weeks later, most of the hair has grown back on my legs, although they are much finer than they used to be. Is that a bad sign that they have mostly grown back? What comes to bikini line then I am still satisfied with the results.

It sounds normal. You should be getting another treatment in the next 1-3 weeks.

I had my third treatment on lower legs, bikini line and part of my upper legs done 3 and a half weeks ago.
This time I am not satisfied because only 50-60 percent of the hair treated have sheded although the practitioner used 33 joules this time and it hurt badly.
I am thinking of visiting them again and of paying for the treatments again.
May having a treatment in 5 weeks time be somehow bad for the hair cycles? Because I won´t be able to go earlier.
Thank you for answering!

You should ask them for a touchup. Sounds like they missed spots. It's best to do it now while the hair is in the right phase. Don't wait until 5 weeks. At that point, you might as well wait 10 weeks for your next treatment.

Did they use compression? Or they glided without pressing?

Hello, Lagirl!

I called the clinic and ecplained that I have soooo many missed spots on my legs and they advised me on coming to the clinic tomorrow to show the areas treated.

Do people shave at home before getting a touchup? I mean.. is there a chance I get a touchup or will it just be a visit to show my concern?

And.. it is very hard to teff if they used compression or not because it hurt badly and I couldn't think of anything else but the pain. There are areas on my legs I know they treated meaning the laser touched the place but I see no shedding. And on lower legs I have so called hair-stripes so it seems there the laser just missed spots.

I am pretty much sure they don't offer touchups and going there means I have to pay again for the whole thing. Another concern is that they really don't even know the basic rules because on my consultation nothing about complete hair shedding between treatments was mentioned.

I wouldn't shave. I would leave it so they can see all the missed spots. You can shave there.

Striping is definitely a result of not overlapping and gliding.

Even if they don't technically offer it, I think you should try to press them for a touchup based on the fact that you paid to treat the entire area, not 50% of it. I would point to striping as a definite clue that the area just wasn't covered well.

I won't shave and see what happens.

Is there a slight difference between having a touchup on a week 4 or 5? Is it useless in that case?
