I am starting electrolysis again next week. Last night I went for a consultation and had a small area done to test my skin reaction. I have had some swelling last night and today and now have red bumps. I have religiously followed aftercare instructions (e.g., no makeup, soaps, etc…only witch hazel). I’m wondering after the 24- 48 hrs, how do people suggest hiding the skin irritation? Is there certain makeup, etc? On a related issue, my electrologist suggests thinning hair to start makes sense for me to minimize the skin sensitivity (since my facial hair is all so close together). If I let my hair grow for treatment, and then it is only thinned, how should I go about removing the remaining hair in between appointments?
Thanks for the suggestions!
