One Week After Laser Hair Removal Session #4

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!

    I had laser done to remove hair on my neck and it burned and irritated my skin. Then I went to a local med spa (http://www.frenchmedspa.com/) and had IPL hair removal. It was faster than the laser removal and didn’t burn. It also takes the hair much longer to grow back.

    You are right in putting plenty of sun screen and being careful of the sun. It may also be a good idea to make sure your small moles will not receive any sun light. Having said that, have a great week.

    Great overall results. I am in the same boat & am doing my research now.
    I am in the NY area too & was eyeballing RNJ.

    Hey. I’ve been following your journal. I’m wishing you luck. May I suggest getting Blue Lizard sunblock? It’s very creamy and thick. You can really see where you’re covering and it covers very well. It’s kind of pricey but it’s worth every penny.
    Good luck and enjoy Vegas!
