Two Weeks After Laser Hair Removal Session #4

Thursday, August 14th, 2008

So, it’s been two weeks now since laser hair removal treatment #4 and I’m in Las Vegas where it’s hot enough to breed sheep! I’ve been using SPF-45 sunscreen all week but I’m still getting a little color. No adverse side effects at this point though. Honestly, there’s not much to report right now, but I’ll give a quick breakdown:

-I’m shedding quickly. I think I’ve shed almost everything I’m going to shed at this point.
-I’m already seeing hairs growing back on some weird parts of my upper arm, like the inside of my arm.
-I think my upper arm is going to end up being my biggest issue in the long run.
-I’m seeing a few hairs on my shoulders that we either missed or they’re new hairs coming in.
-They intentionally missed a spot on my leg, because it was all cut up, and it’s looking a little odd now being the only bit of hair on my legs.
-I think I might go to NYC later this week or early next week for a touch up and to show them the hairs on my arms and figure out what to do about these.

As promised, here are the pics of my arms and legs from this week. Honestly, there’s not much to see, as I’ve shed pretty much everything. But you can see my legs, and the cut on my right leg, that they had to go around and now, as a result, is the only area with any hair on my legs. Also, if you look at the two pictures of my arms, you can see the hairs that are growing on the left upper side of my arm, just above my elbow. It’s really hard to take pics of them. But those are the hairs I mostly wanted to highlight, since I think its weird that they’re coming in at all.

One Week After Laser Hair Removal Session #4

Tuesday, August 5th, 2008

Hey everybody! Another week another post! It’s a little weird for me to be doing these posts on Mondays now after being so used to doing them (or trying to) every Thursday for the past 6 months. I was starting to get pretty used to it.

So it’s been a week since my fourth laser hair removal session in New York City at Romeo and Juliette Laser Hair Removal. Things have been going pretty well but there were a few things I noticed in the past week that have never happend before. First off, I noticed that my skin looked a little bruised in some areas! Could it be from the higher laser settings? It’s possible. This was mainly happening on my legs, but I noticed my arms were a little red for a bit longer than usual. I also noticed that a few of my small moles, that got lasers in the process, are a bit darker. I’ve noticed this before but then they seemed to fade back after a few days. We’ll, it’s been a week now and they’re still pretty dark brown/black. Oh well. Not really a big deal. Remember in the past when I thought my legs were losing color? Well, that cleared itself up, so I guess I just need to give everything some time.

As far as the hair is concerned, I’m still waiting to shed. I’m seeing little hairs, that look like stubble, popping up everywhere. Nothing out of the ordinary. I’m just really focusing on my upper arms right now and hoping that they shed fine, and that the hair doesn’t grow back super quickly! I really need to get these upper arm hairs taken care of and I think they’ve become my biggest concern, now that my arm and leg hair is thinning out!

This upcoming week is going to be very interesting. I’m headed to Las Vegas for a week and was planning on hanging out at the pools as I always do. However, since I just had this laser hair removal session a week ago, I’m a little concerned. I’ve always been told to stay the hell out of the sun after each session! So I’m not sure what’s going to happen…I’m planning on packing some SPF-40 or SPF-50 sunscreen and putting that on pretty heavily and frequently. I hope that does the trick. We’ll see.

I’ll post pictures of my current hair growth in the next day or so before I leave for Vegas!
