For anyone who is interested in laser hair removal on the scalp, it will take more sessions than you think you need. Laser hair removal requires patience. It is a slow process. It doesn't happen over night. It might not even happen during your first year. I went in for my first session in November 2014. My shadow started to fade away after my first treatment, but I had multiple patches. The patches disappear gradually over time. The shadow will also continue to disappear. After my 6th session, my shadow was nonexistent. My patches also reduced. By session 12, I had 0 patches. By this time, if any hair grew, it was generally peach fuzz in certain areas. Some areas just never grew hair again. It is now March 2017. I recently finished my 18th session. I am completely hairless. It was the best decision I have made in my life. I also have to mention. Everyone's experiences with laser hair removal will be different than others due to hair texture, hair thickness, the amount of hair that you have to begin with, and of course, genetics. Some people will require more sessions than others. Some people will feel more pain than others. Some people will experience more patches than others. During my first few sessions, I experienced these "tombstones." My hairs seemed thicker than they originally were. And they looked like rocks, and they could not be shaved. They were burned hairs. They eventually fell out within a week. Honestly, I looked worst after my first session than I did originally. But after a week, I noticed the results. And it was working. Some of you will be miserable during the beginning of the journey. But not everyone experiences this. Just be patient, and have a positive attitude. Everyone's journey could be different. However, I do believe that everyone can get admirable results.
