Hi, (First time poster - long time reader.)
I will try to make this really concise.
I have PCOS, had the blend for approximately 5 years with two different electrologists. ( I moved - so I switched.)
The 2nd electrologist switched to thermolysis about 1 1/2 years ago. I don’t pluck - haven’t pluck in years. What’s the point of plucking if you’re going to an electrologist, right? Anyway, I’ve been having a weird discoloration & ingrowns (for several months). So, I decided to go somewhere else. I am really happy with my new electrologist, but here’s my problem:
How did I get ingrowns? - apparently, tons of them if I haven’t touched a tweezer there in many, many, years. Also, I maybe plucked between 10-15 hairs(when I did years ago). Now, I have 10 times that.
Is it something I did? Why didn’t my other electrologist say something? Other than plucking, waxing, etc. the hair -can you give yourself ingrowns?
The hairs now are mostly fine, but dark. I do have curly, wavy hair. Also, I didn’t like the Tend Skin, but I used Pore Effects from Dr. Brandt. It was more gentle on my skin. It seemed that I had a weird reaction to the Tend Skin. I know a lot of people here like it, but to me, it was like putting acid on my face & neck.
If anybody can tell me what they think, I would truly appreciate it.
