Default I just had my first treatment and there is still hair everywhere

Hi there,
I'm a 19 year old student and I just had my first treatment this morning (Full legs, bikini and underarms). I was told to come to the treatment having fully shaved all those areas, which I did. During the session, I didn't feel any pain at all, and I was done in an hour. My skin seemed to react fine, with no redness or irritation
Now, a few hours later I have noticed that my legs are already stubbly when I was told by my mother, who had the her LHR treatments done a few years ago, that right after the first treatment, I should see some results. However at the moment it is as if I haven't had anything done at all!

I was wondering whether this was normal? Also can I shave? Will shaving my underarms or legs stop the treatments from working in any way?

The laser typically singes all hairs, making you very smooth, and then the ones it killed will fall out by the root. However, it only kills hairs in active growing states, which is only a third of your hairs at a time, which is why it takes multiple treatments. Of course the laser may not have been calibrated strong enough as well.

Yes, you can still shave and it will not affect anything. If after a week or so has gone by and you still see no hair at all fall out, the treatment may not have been completely effective and they may need to up the laser intensity next time.
