I am an Indian girl and went for a trial session for laser at a center in Dubai - Cocoona.
I had peach fuzz and not much hair on my face except on the chin and under. However after one session of Alexandrite laser I noticed more growth of hair on some areas of my face.
When I went back I was told that it generally does not happen however it could, and this will go in the subsequent sessions.
I did not intend to continue with laser however not I think I will have to consider the same. I am just scared that my hair growth will increase in the subsequent sessions.
Also this is a reputed place and the Doc was authentic, is t possible that my body is not suitable for laser? I have also come to know that before every laser session shaving is required however I was not shaved before my session.
Even if I were would it not make my hair grow back thicker, I feel that even after waxing. I would also like to know that between my sessions would my face have pepper spots as to where the hair follicles have been attacked.
Wouldn't it look really ugly ?
Hope to hear from you soon
I understand you have had treatment done with the alexandrite laser for fine hairs. You stated that your hairs were "peach fuzz" hairs, unfortunately if you have had laser treatment on that type of hair growth you will not see much results because the hairs are too fine.
Laser actually works better on darker and thicker hairs, the clinic should have actually advised you not to have laser treatment done, even though the alexandrite laser is a good laser for slightly finer hairs, but if you have peach fuzz hairs it is not going to work.
Prior to your treatment you must always shave before you go in, if they have done treatment on the actual growth and the growth is still present, this can still give good results but it is best to always shave to avoid any burns or singeing of the hairs.
You are not supposed to be doing any waxing, threading etc with the treatment, as occasionally what happens is if you have treated very fine hairs it can actually stimulate more growth, we have actually experienced this with clients, and do not treat those clients with peach fuzz hair.
Your better option is to go for Electrolysis or other methods of hair removal. Electrolysis is probably the best method because it’s 100% permanent and works on finer hairs.
I understand that now after the laser treatment your hairs have come back thicker and there is more of them but unfortunately you are in a situation where you would need to carry on with the laser treatment in order to make your hairs return to their original and finer way again.
My best advice is to contact your clinic and see what they can actually advise you to do.
Regarding your question about whether your face would have "pepper spots" due to the laser, occasionally what can happen, if your skin is sensitive you can have breakouts of whiteheads or little black dots which are the hair follicle, after the treatment roughly ten days later this will disappear.
I hope this has helped, if you have any more questions feel free to email me,
