It's best to get it as close to 3 weeks as possible. Technically, it's better to get it the next day after the treatment, but you won't know what was missed then. 3 weeks is the earliest you can tell for sure.

I went to the clinic and they were willing to offer me a free touchup for lower legs. I didn't shave before so the practitioner could see the hair stripes.
I asked her to press the laserspot hard against my skin to see if that way the results would be better. She said she had never used that hard compression on anybody before.

My skin has not been that red and itching as this time, I have black-head alike dots all over the area treated, is that normal?

Yes, those are pepperspots. It's dead hair that will fall out. You can start exfoliating to help that process in a week or two.

It looks like you're teaching them to use the machine wink

Hello!

I'll tell you what has happened to me in the meantime.

Right now I am having treatments with Candela because after each treatment with Lightsheer I had patchy skin and I was never satisfied with the results. With Lightsheer I had 4 tr on lower legs, 4 on bikini and 2 on upper.
I've had plus one treatment on each area with Candela Gentlelase laser.
The practitioner also treated my buttocks although I was not sure if the hair there were coarse enough (dark-yes).
Now after 5 weeks my buttocks are OK meaning not much hair growing there, but full of folliculitidis. I was asked to come back after 1,5 months to have my buttocks retreated.

How can I be sure that the laser works on my buttocks and doesn't induce hair growth? I can't provide a picture because there's nothing to see yet.

All the best,
M

What settings were used? What is your skin type?

You can't be sure unless you don't treat the area that doesn't have coarse dense growth.

My skin type is II.
My next treatment is on Friday- I'll ask for the settings then.


What comes to hair density, I have strong doubts.. I just watched photos most people in this forum said laser would do no good and I even don't have that dense hair. My hair is dark but not dense enough. Unfortunately there's no electrolysis in my country.

Should I go and have my next treatment or wait until my hair grow so I could post photos?
The doctor who treats my hair said nothing about me not being the perfect candidate.

There is no point of having a treatment if the hair has not fully grown in yet. Many clinics will just treat regardless and will say "sorry" when you get no results. I wouldn't waste your money if the hair is not coarse and dense.

You can potentially consider traveling to Germany or Spain for electrolysis once a month.

Hello!

I skipped my last session and let my hair grow just to be sure what I do is right. I've made a few photos in order to let you decide what is best for me because clinic doesn't do that for me.

These photos are made from the back of my upper leg, the last one is the closest to the knee.

I found one clinic in my country that offers electrolysis. Here's the site:

I don't know what to think of it..

Thank you!

Your hair is fine and sparse and definitely needs electrolysis.

I don't see any information on the type of electrolysis machine this clinic uses and what method on their website. You may want to call and ask.

Does it mean that laser is useless for me?
