Wow. Thanks for sharing your experience. Good luck whether or not you decide to continue. (I sense your frustration.)A few questions:(1) Have you tracked how much money you spent on all your sessions? (2) If you fresh shave today, how long before you see/feel any stubble growing back?(3) How are you judging the density now and when you started?(4) Where do you fall on the Norwood MPB scale?
should I have fresh shaved smooth skin or 1-2mm long hair, when I doing session on Alexandrite laser?
My hair went really thin starting around 13 due to some skin issues. It wasn't until I was 23 that I went for the . I switched to razors a few years after that and have been mostly bald since - I do have a penchant for getting lazy and letting my hair grow for a week or two at a time. I go to a barber to get cleaned up - no mess for me to deal with.I jokingly said to my barber three months ago that he's going to be in for a surprise when once day I get laser hair removal, thinking it's not a done thing for heads. He surprised me by telling me about other clients he has had do it and encouraged me to look into it.That led me to Google, which lead me here. Let me thank you all for sharing your stories and adventures in laser hair removal for your heads. Given that I'm in my mid-30s and have two visible stray grays now, I figured it was now or never.I made the jump today.Going in without numbing cream was a huge mistake - I figured I could take it. I was wrong. They sold me some and I came back a bit later ready to go with the cream applied.I've had my back neck and total scalp treated. With the cream applied it was a little painful still, but more in a grit and bear it kind of way.I could not find anyone in my region that does scalps, so I'm driving about 2.5 hours each way to the place I chose. They were really nice about me coming back today, dealing with the pain, and helping throughout the scheduling through to purchase process. I have dark hair and relatively pale skin and they have an Alexandrite laser, so I'm thinking this will work out well.I'm excited to see how things turn out. Thanks again to everyone for their encouraging stories and conversations.
Looks great. How was the pain level when they were doing it? Any pain afterward? Did they give you an indication of how many treatments may be needed to achieve permanent results?I do not think I would have done it when I had a full head of hair. I would consider it now since I am bald on top, if there was a treatment that would work on gray and white hair.
