I have a question that I hope someone can help me with. I’ve been seeing my electrolysis for about a year now and I seem to be making progress even though it does seem slower than I like. My electrolysist uses an older brand of machine (I have no idea of the name), but recently purchased an new Apilus machine which she intends to use in the salon alongside the older machine. At my last appointment she told me that she purchased the Apilus to use on clients who find electrolysis treatments very painful as the apilus is less painful, but will continue using the older machine on me as she feels she has more control with the older machine and can treat the hair with more current/time etc.
I’ve heard good things about this machine, so I’m wondering whether or not I should ask to switch to the apilus? I’m often left with scabs on my face after treatment which can take at least a week to fall off. Would the apilus be less ‘damaging to the skin’? My electrolysist has been doing electrolysis for over 20 years and I never really feel as though the hair is being tweezed. It’s the scabs I’m concerned about. Thanks for reading
