Title: Finished the round of laser on my face
Post by: FloralAlyssa on September 20, 2020, 02:29:57 pm
I have to say I'm pretty thrilled with the result.  I had a little grey hair, and that is still there so I still shave daily, but at this point a couple of spots still have a light shadow (upper lip and chin mainly), but a couple of spots of concealer and a medium coverage powder foundation is all I need for it to be unnoticeable all day.  Once I'm done with the touch-up appointments to finish off the last stubborn shadow, I'll probably just begin having my face waxed to get rid of the greys.

Next up is starting a round of LHR on my full chest.

Had 7 sessions myself, few loose greys, but lip and couple patches on chin are all that remain :)

I was super happy w laser as well.   I ended up getting just a little electrolysis to get rid of the greys.   No more shaving!  Well, the face at least  lol   I did cheat some and hit the legs with a couple of sessions too.  Might as well make it easier.

After all the sessions to get my face mostly clear pre-HRT... legs, armpits, and abs felt soooo easy.  Just a few sessions there made a huge difference in regular maintenance requirements.  I have so few leg hairs, it's just a quick 5-10 minutes session once a month with an epilator.  Abs are just thin and light blonde hair that looks totally normal. Full disclosure, even before two years of HRT, I was not a particularly hairy individual to begin with.

It's been over 3 years now since my last session and my face is still clear with the exception of white/gray hairs.  It certainly can work... just don't give up after 6 months or so when things suddenly seem to be coming back, eventually you beat it all back. 

YMMV.. yadda yadda yadda...
