After receiving quite a number of inquiries on how my underarm laser hair removal I had in 2014 progressed, I finally gave laser removal a go again after a couple of years. As I mentioned in an article published a few months after I stopped midway through the treatment, my pits started to darken. If there’s anything about my underarms, they are chubby but not dark. The darkening phase kinda shocked me and I decided to quit the laser hair removal procedure altogether.
Two years down the road, I’m taking this laser hair removal road once again and it’s the Diode Laser Treatment this time via Allura Body Contour and Slimming Center.
I know better than to preempt any conclusion. But it’s a couple of days since my second treatment and no darkening! The procedure I went through in 2014, darkening happened on my second visit. I’m going to make sure to share my progress as I go along and am plenty hopeful this time that I will be able to graduate through the suggested 10 session treatment course.
First off, what is Diode Laser Hair Removal? Here’s what I’ve learned about this laser removal treatment, so far.
Diode Laser Hair Removal
- Diode Laser Hair Removal is the GOLD STANDARD for light brown (type III) to fair (type II) skin tone.
- Laser hair removal is the process of removing unwanted hair by means of exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle.
- To achieve permanent hair reduction, several sessions are needed. The number of sessions depends on the area of the body being treated.
- The diode laser produces a light in the 800 nanometer range which specifically seeks the pigment in dark hair and does not affect surrounding tissues.
