    Just started laser treatments. A few things I am confused about.

    1) After a laser treatment, once the hairs start growing back in, are all those dead hairs waiting to shed out?

    2) Since shaving is okay to do in between laser sessions, how are the dead hairs going to shed out if they keep getting shaved down?

    That's pretty much where my confusion lies. Any answers would be splendid and appreciated.

    Hello everyone!!!
    I’m female from India. I just started my laser treatment for the legs and underarms. My skin tone is II or III and my dermatologist from Les CosMedics, Rajouri Garden, Delhi, used diode lasers for the treatment. After my initial laser session I noticed hair fall and when my hair started to regrow, that would be after 3 to 5 weeks, and I went for the next session. In each session, laser targets the active phase hair follicles. Dead hair shed away on their own and shaving won’t hinder the shedding process. Hope you have a great treatment!!!
