In recent days we have been able to read things like this:
"[i][color:#990000]Thermolysis is not the current that will permanently destroy all the cells in the follicle for deep course hair. What most likely happened with your case, is that the electrologist had the Thermolysis setting too high and was in the follicle way too long. Perhaps even was working with a old machine that runs much hotter than newer thermolysis epilators. The pits you were left with will slowly heal a bit and level out some, but most likely you will have some sort of deviation on the skin. I have seen many clients that have previously been treated with Thermolysis with the orange peel skin depressions with thick hair still growing out of the pits/ depressions!!!
I never use straight Thermolysis (AC) on deep course hair. Thermolysis works best on fine vellus hair. Blend uses Galvanic current and low level thermolysis. You would benefit from Blend or just straight Galvanic.
I would recommend you look for a Blend or Galvanic operator for your unwanted PCOS hair.
Electrolysis is a procedure. It is up to you to inform yourself. You must do the home work on learning the differences between the modalities since you don’t want further damage and want the hair off.[/color][/i]"
"[color:#990000]High Frequency can cause over treatment due to the quick rise of the heating pattern of the current. A skilled HF (AC) electrologist with good insertions and vision will not have an issue. People with darker skin have options and I personally would recommend short treatments on the side of the lip to thin out the area slowly and to be careful to not have the AC setting too high. I am a manual blend operator, and would set machine at .3-30 and move up to .4-30 , or .3-35 and see how the skin reacts.[/color]"
Now let me show you an interesting case:
Arms woman, 27 years old, Asian skin.
Before. April 2014:
Right forearm: first clearance made by a former electrologist in Germany with Blend.
April 2014: Aspect of the right arm, several months after the first clearance by a previous electrologist with blend:
Left forearm: first clearance made by me, with Flash (high “thermolysis”):
Appearance of both arms, left arm, right after the first clearance
January 2015. Before third clearance, 7 months after the second clearing:
I could draw a conclusion after seeing this: Blend can cause overtreatment due to galvanic, since this is the current that was not used in the left arm!
I could, but I will not, because that would completely untrue and unfair. We’ve all had the opportunity to see the magnificent work of an electrologist who often post here, and who uses Blend with high HF and some galvanic.
