#97541 - 04/06/12 12:02 AM Laser Rebound Years Later (To Geeeza, DPP, and...)

... all who have started Electrolysis after laser.

I'm working on a case that could be similar to yours. Male, multiple laser sessions, young (incomplete development of hairs), etc.
This man had laser in the chest, upper arms, neck, stomach and abdomen (for more than two years with an alexandrite).
When he first came to me in March 2011 for a trial session in his neck, I photographed all the areas he wanted to eliminate with Electrolysis. The last laser session was a year before the first photo. In this first trip, we did not touch the chest, because there was no time and his main priority was the neck (front and back), so the chest was not touched until July 2011. Notice how the density of hairs on his chest is substantially higher in July (actual date of start of Electrolysis) than in the photo taken in March . Thank God I did not work in this area in March, because if I have done, the appearance of failure would be brutal.

My intention in opening this thread is to help you understand that you probably will have more regrowth of what you expect, but your electrologist is killing all the hairs that are coming (whether the regrowth arrive by the induced growth, as if coming from a new development).


In July 2011 (before first clearance)

In November 2011 (before second clearance)

In March 2012 (before third clearance)

I hope this helps you understand how important it is to interpret the results based on what happened before of electrolysis treatments.

Just wow. Try telling a client coming to you after failed laser treatments that he or she can still have more regrowth after the laser more than a year later. No one will believe you.

Thanks for the interesting pictures, but that man's hair was way too light to be treated with laser in the first place so I don't think even laser experts would have been surprised.

According to laser experts who worked on this man, he was the ideal candidate: pigmented roots in a very white skin, high contrast. They even convinced him to do at the top of the arms, when my client was reluctant.

I'm not campaigning against the laser here, I'm just protecting the work of the electrologist, revealing a phenomenon that tends to confuse the user of electrolysis.

Well laser is crap. I just don't understand why it is so crap for some people and great for others. It seems at least fifty percent are unhappy with their treatments
. Whereas electrolysis really does work for most.

It would be really interesting to know even approximate percent of success and failed LASER treatments.

I think in most cases the results for women may be better for obvious reasons. With men it is so strange because they will report the swelling shedding even at high energies and its all back. I think another factor is that like myself.. i was not a good candidate for laser but still tried. laser clinics will always say they can treat with the exception of a few who take pride in there work and not just take your money. ELECTROLYSIS Is my last hope before i wax it all off lol. I think it may even be as high as 70% failure...for an approximation based on own experience others and from off here.
