First two pictures are areas of concern. Pictures three and four show other areas I’ve done that seem “normal”. 20x magnification.
Using a ballet tapered TC medium probe inserted to full depth of the follicle (such that the end of the taper is just sticking out), 0.99 ma DC for 15 seconds w/4 pulses of 0.20s AC @ 60% via Apilus SX500. The areas of concern had to be treated twice to get something approximating an epilation*.
Basically, the areas in the first two pictures remind me of a temperature burn; the skin turned white and became fragile to the point where it could be scraped off. I’m guessing this is a sign I should be using insulated probes as the taper isn’t preventing the rise of the HF as much as needed?
*my facial hairs always result in a small feeling of traction when having electrolysis done in just about every provider I’ve seen, and in my own work as well. From what I understand this is due to having very large roots, as well as a side effect of having very stretchy skin due to a congenital collagen disorder.
