So I went to an electrologist, I asked her a variety of questions
She uses insulated IB probe electrolysis - I asked her to explain - she told she’d inserting a fine needle into hair follicle and zapping it ( which cuts off the blood supply to the follicle).She has 28yrs of experience. I asked her about after treatment care - she asked me to use ice and fudic bnf cream. And she did the whole free trial thing - she was good with her technique. She has teenagers coming in as well. My gut feeling is she knows her technique but I was not too sure about the whole after care thing - ice never helped me when I’d get threading done it’d cause small staph infection induced pustules. A simple google search tells fudic bnf cream is a steroid and I’m not comfortable using a steroid on my face. I do have acne which flares up from time to time when I’m extremely stressed or have a bad diet or sleep at odd times or when my face is exposed to dust. But having proper life style solves my acne issue. She uses good lighting and magnification glasses too. And she also tells me my skin is dry and it’d help reduce the pain if I used moisturizer and my facial hair could be reason for the acne on my cheeks, where the follicle is exposed to dust.
Also is it safe to cling wrap an anesthetic on the face? Cause I keep reading contradicting articles on the internet.
I watched Ms.Josefa’s video on after care - she uses bepanthol cream unfortunately its not available in India. Is there an equivalent to it? I searched for its chemical equivalent dexpanthenol cream there’s nothing available.
Any insight on anything I’d greatly appreciate. There isn’t much of community on electrolysis in India - one of the reasons for mythe anxious queries. Thank you so much.
