We report our observations of enhancement and suppression between two competing four-wave mixing (FWM) processes. The results show the evolution of the dressed effects (from pure enhancement into pure suppression) in the degenerate FWM processes. Moreover, due to induced atomic coherence in the system, there exist different interplays between these two FWM processes via different detuning parameters. In addition, the power dependences of enhancement and suppression are studied. Theoretical calculations are carried out, which are in good agreement with the experimental observations.
