My most recent laser hair removal treatment was performed on 11.12.2013. I had my original aesthetician this time around, which I was happy about. However, when I told her about what happened at my last treatment, she completely ignored everything negative I had to say. It’s been over a month since treatment 4 and I’m still mad about how the treatment went. The new aesthetician should have at least asked me if I wanted to try a lower setting, test the original setting, or explain to me why she was going to start off with a lower setting if she didn’t want to give me an option. She also skipped most of the places on my face that my original aesthetician did a great job treating. I felt no pain during treatment 4 and as a result of that, there was no shedding after the treatment and hair grew normally. To my understanding, darker skin should expect to feel some level of pain. I honestly feel like I should have been given an extra session to make up for how poorly treatment 4 was performed as well as how there was no progress in results. I travel about 2 hours to get this treatment and the treatment itself isn’t cheap. If it weren’t for the price and time commitment, I probably wouldn’t be upset and would just let it go.
The 5th treatment wasn’t bad. It hurt like it normally would, there was a little bit of redness and tenderness on my face after the treatment was completed. There was no burning this time around which is great. The next day, I tried shaving and there was a good amount of shedding. That’s a good sign.
Overall, this treatment seems like a success and I’m expecting to see more improvement. I have one more session after this and that will be my final session.
Just like last month, I won’t be updating weekly. I will update the changes in next month’s post.
