I also talk a bit about my downtime after the first treatment, which ended up being emotional, not physical.
The video contains new pictures of my chin post-shedding, as well as the washcloth, but as always, for those of you that can't or don't wish to view the video:
This was my washcloth from the day after the treatment. Just a few hairs, but you can see how damaged they are. We got 'em good!
The second photo is my washcloth from thirteen days later. It is covered with little hairs with burned little bulbs at their bases from my chin and neck. This was when I started to get excited. A little too excited, as you'll see in the next picture. I exfoliated my epidermis right off in places, trying to get as many hairs to shed as possible!
On the left you can see my chin sporting a couple of days' growth as per usual with the Spiro and Diane. On the right is also with a couple of days' growth. The hair you can still see is all that's left of the really coarse dark stuff right now. These patches are not likely to shed as they are probably in the intermediate or resting phase of growth, which the laser cannot damage. The hairs coming out on the washcloth were in the active growth phase, which tell me how many hair follicles we took out in that treatment.
Whether they'll stay out remains to be seen, but this is already beyond my expectations. It absolutely had to be shared with you guys! :)
