I was wondering if anyone would like to share their opinion on my recent experience for Electrolysis which did not go so well.
For starters, I’ve had 4 laser hair removal sessions previously all a month apart.
The doctor who did the electrolysis gave my lidocaine injections first as this was for the upper area.
The bottom chin area was a strong lidocaine cream (10%).
I’m pretty certain it was the Blend Method as I had to hold the probe in my hand for the procedure.
She basically full clearing of the beard area around the mouth. Two session for top and bottom.
After doing much reading I now realize that this is a mistake and likely she should have done more sparsely session and wait for some skin healing in between.
Now after this experience I was left with incredibly swollen face and lips with many scabs. Some large.
It’s been about a month since this and I have recessions/dents around my upper lip (big ones) and smaller little “icepick” like ones or “orange peel” effect on my chin.
I’ve seen post of others where they have had large clearings and seemingly no harsh aftermath such as mine.
I’m wondering, is it because my hair was really dense and thick for this to happen and the doctor shouldn’t have done this?
This can’t be normal aftermath right?
I’m really worried about scars and how to go forward with my hair removal.
Any advice would be dearly appreciated for this scared person.
Thank for such a great community full or resources.
