Following Fenix's advice.

The first photo was taken right after a session in the beard density reduction work. I think you can see the area where the session was interrupted (higher hair density).


Here in more detail:


This was the original density, before the start:


This man's beard was fully developed when the process was carried out. The hairs were incredibly thick (as I had never seen or worked on). In my opinion the redesign of the line under the cheek, as well as the neckline is too low and too high, but that's the customer's choice, therefore, it was done as he wanted since it falls within the aesthetically acceptable.

I'm not going to lie, this is not an EASY job, neither for the client nor for the practitioner.

Another moment of the process. In this area, all hairs were treated and permanently removed:

Amazing work Josefa. The individual's beard density and thickness is very impressive, but you can see after the selective hair removal it will create a different "lighter beard" look.

Laser can't achieve this because of the unpredictable nature of it, but with electrolysis there is complete control of the process. Bravo.

I've faced exactly this kind of scenario. Unfortunately, the client never completed the job.

Josefa I remember seeing a video on your channel using this case. Amazing work!! In thinning cases, do you start with full clearances first and then transition into removing random hairs or you always start with just thinning?

Josefa,

Thank you for replying on this thread and sharing your expert opinion. The pictures were very helpful.

If I want to thin my beard enough such that the "5 o'clock shadow" is hardly visible, what is a good metric to go by such that I don't go "too thin" in density? Assume that my facial hair is as thick (per hair) and dark as your client in the pictures.

Also, I've noticed that guys have different patterns of hair growth , where some have a high beard line at the cheek, while others have a much lower height, and other just have the chin and mustache area without growing on the sides.

What's the best way to figure out which hair pattern is best for me?

Thank you, Josefa. I look forward to hearing from you!
