Hi there. After 6 treatments with the Cutera laser (which someone here said is an IPL, but the dermatologist insists is a “true laser” - don’t know what to believe) that have been TOTALLY unsuccessful, I’m considering trying electrolysis again. I tried it about 10 years ago but only went twice because I found the treatments excruciatingly painful - like having lava injected into my face. On top of that, I had black pepper spots for a week afterward that were impossible to cover with makeup. But recently I’ve read that a skilled practicioner should not have those results. We have a woman with 30 years experience in my area of PA - Cindy Uhler, but I can’t find any local reviews. Thought maybe someone here knows about her, since she’s been in the biz so long. She claims she can make treatments comfortable and there will be no noticeable signs afterward. Does this sound reasonable? I don’t know if the spots and pain I had with the last woman were normal or if she was just a terrible electrologist.
So thankful for any help!!
P.S. - If it helps with info, I am female with thick dark hair on my chin that I shave. It seems worse since the Cutera treatments. I had hormone testing a while ago and they were “normal.”
