So now I’ve been to see three different people and it seems third time lucky! First one was thermolysis, but i could feel her plucking the hairs and it was very pricey and i read that thermolysis was not as easy to get right for the electrologist as other types. So second week, i had galvanic - single needle - in a different place. She didnt achieve full clearance in a 45 min session though, as its slower, and so I decided to keep looking around.
Today was quite successful - so third week lucky! the lady used blend, place was clean. She talked me through the process properly and it didnt feel rushed - even though she only charges for the actual time spent removing hair - a huge bonus around here I’ve noticed where in some places they like to add 10 euro here or there just for having spoken to you!
She recommended Rose Musk Oil for skin care, as it helps prevent scarring she says and also hydrates well. I saw Rose Hip oil mentioned on this forum previously (stoppit is an advocate I believe!) and wondered if any body has opinions on this Rose Musk? I shall let you know how it goes for me anyway.
Today she used blend for 30 minutes and cleared chin and upper lip totally. I am a little red now (2 hours after) as normal. Lets see how well my skin takes that intensive a session with Blend in the coming days.
One question - the electrologist suggested that rather than coming in once a week for 30-40 min sessions, rather I come twice a week for shorter sessions and clear whatever is available to clear. She says this will be easier on my skin. Note that so far my skin has been fine actually, so apart from initial redness, usually no problems or even postules or scabs.
What do you people think about twice a week sessions? Price wise, should work the same. I have the time and flexibility. My real concern is that i would have to let the hair grow out all the time - at the moment I tend to use razor as needed for first 5 days and then leave the last 2 days for the growth to be there for the next session. If I have twice a week sessions - then i’d have to leave the hair growing most of the week…not sure if i’d be happy to walk around like that…
but if it meant a better, faster and ‘terminal’ result in the long term - well, I’ll do it of course!
tell me please
