Since I heard a lot of voices saying that people do not appear again on this forum when things go smooth, here I am - writing to report how things are since I changed my electrologist and to encourage to trying out different practicioners.
Judging over the span of 4 or 5 visits to my last electrologist (7 or 8 treatments by different people) I can see that I have made a wise decision in trying her out instead of carrying on going to the former one.
I changed since I wasn’t fully satisfied with the service (the payments, her “you don’t need to know excactly” answers, the blemishes (?))
And the fact is that everything has changed for good.
The one I am currently visiting (not very often, +/- monthly) is far more informative as for the treatment, the treatments are less painfull, the discoloration fades away sooner and the skin heals faster(still I have some places which are red, never losing the color completely before next treatment and they are the “legacy” of the former practicioner), she is more considerate (cares for the clients’ need for privacy during cosmetic treatments), uses my personal needle,
and all that for one third! of the price I was told by the former one.
why ask - I had a problem with the fact that I felt slight pulling sensation when my current electrologist treated me. what turned out after I asked was that she did not use tweezers to take the hair out; to be sure it’s going out easily she did it with her fingers, accidentally slightly pulling the hairs around (yeah- I could not know it cause she treats my back). I told her about that sensation, and the other time she asked me a few times if I felt pulling or not (and adding if she pulled only one hair this time or accidentally more).
one more gain - my skin should be healthier, since with the former practitioner I heard constantly the hissing sound - & as I was informed here, the sound was the one of burnt skin (that is probably why I have still the marks of her work on me)
today my back is looking really fine, the effects are there and I’ll see if they stay.
so my advice is: if you are not satisfied with your electrologist go and try other ones, never stick to one just because she/he promises you effects in a long run.
after all you can always return - they will be happy with your come back (but reconsider that - you had reasons to split)
and always be inquisitive
