Laser - Recovery time seems faster

Guest Krisina

I was wondering if others have noticed the same thing after laser treatments on their face. 

I have had my seventh treatment on my face for the laser and it only seems to take about four days to recover instead of 10 or 12.  My face, skin, seems to be pretty much back to normal. Maybe i am jumping the gun on this, assuming, and other hairs will exfoliate I don't know about that will need to clear up.  

What has been the experience for others with this, after so many laser reatments?

Hi Audrey. I just looked at my face again and I guess it isn't that clear. No, I wasn't referring to the irritation. The irritation is gone. I was referring however to the number of dark hairs that usually sit just under the surface of the skin. The ones I can't shave off or use exfoliates to clear up properly. The hairs I have to wait to come to the surface. It takes me about 10 days til the face is clear of them and exfoliated of the dead hair follicles.

Again I might be jumping the gun on this. My face under a brighter light isn't that clear. It is to me really good though. I was thinking maybe it had something to do with the laser has been doing its job and there aren't that many active dark hairs anymore to be zapped.

Oh,haha. Yeah I guess I never really thought of that as recovery. Probably because I have dealt with these darn hairs for so long I just expect it. But now that you mention it, it actually seems like the recovery time is taking longer. But really because there is not much there anymore so what is stands out big. But I think you might agree that when it does recover it is a wonderful feeling. :D

One thing that has shortened is the time it takes to complete each session. Less pain is always a good thing.

I've only had 2 sessions and it still seems to take about 2 weeks before I notice areas that aren't as dark as they used to be.

...and like McDonald's, I'm lovin it!

Same here, about 10-12 days for the hair to fall out. I totally love that it takes less than 5 minutes of treatment :thumbsup:

I've gone 3 times and got amazing results. I'm considering switching to electrolysis now though because I think it might be more cost effective at this point.

      It's something that is still falling into place bit by bit. I've grown in so many ways since I decided to transition, I'm still being surprised by what my authentic life looks like.   The old me struggled and was constantly weighed down by poor mental health. Now I've got a career and stuff I never thought I was good enough for. It's overwhelming at times. I'm not used to being 'normal'!

      Just read in an LGBTQ Nation article where, yes. the thing about Furries is a characterization of Trans identities.  A political candidate in Colorado is the main shoot from the mouth person in that fracas.  She has over 30 state school districts and 3 organization of school administrators and superintendants telling her to go chase a cat, preferably a wild cat who will turn and chase her.

      @Marcie Jensen @Billie75B my E levels tanked three months ago.  I just did blood work yesterday for new numbers. If they are still in the tank, we will change things but it’s been a fight with my endo and he’s the only one I can go to.  This state likes to make it very difficult for doctors to help transgenders.

      Definitely, definitely. This seems very illegal and very invasive. It can already be embarrassing enough having a monthly and having it start at inconvenient times, and having documentation like this might actually embarrass an athlete and cause them- on the extreme side- to consider dropping athletic sports if that's how they're going to be treated. Really, it shouldn't be a school's business when a student experiences such a process or when they had it last. That's only important to the parents- if the student is comfortable with sharing such information- and doctors if a medical emergency occurs. No athlete should be barred under the basis of a process not everyone goes through. There are some girls who don't get monthlies or as often as other people.

      If anyone opts out of answering, they will be branded as trans, and discrimination will follow.  The whole point is to identify trans people.

      At the time I went to see the counselor, I don't think the trans condition was very well understood or thought of as important. And it really isn't right for a therapist to make that kind of 'deal' situation with their client. Often, one issue causes another and they can't be singly ignored or favored for another.    I saw mentioned somewhere about interviewing a therapist before actually starting treatment. It genuinely sounds like a good idea, especially since you'll be seeing them for a time. I don't like the feeling I'm conducting an interrogation, but I'll have to get over that if I want to get better. And, maybe, the therapist won't mind either.   I'll remember to ask about that too. Where I live, there are few therapists available that work with transgender issues. I just hope they can help those that are FtM. My one concern is the therapist having a negative reaction towards me. It's probably in my head, but if I run into a similar situation as I related before, I might be mortified.

      @VickySGVSounds like a pretty funny situation. I've never been to a Furry event before but they look like fun. I've met a few Furries in person in the past and they're really cool, creative people.   @awkward-yet-sweetHaha! That's a funny one!    @Marcie JensenThat sounds like a funny sketch. I've always been a fan of puns.

      Since this is being done online, there is no way to guarantee anyone's privacy. They did claim it was optional though. Seems unnecessary intrusive.
