I’ve been having electrolysis on the face, neck, chest and stomach for the past couple of years and am thankfully nearing completion in most areas. There is just one particular part of the body which both electrologists I see seem to struggle treating, which is the clavicle (by this I mean the U-shaped dip in the collar bone underneath the neck) and those hairs on the upper chest and across the collar bone.
These hairs grow upwards towards my neck and can be difficult to reach as my head gets in the way. Electrologists seem to struggle to get the right angle for insertion and, when they do reach the hairs, they don’t release easily once treated. Although the hairs in this area are relatively sparse (as compared to my chin or neck), growth here doesn’t seem to have reduced much compared other areas and I think this must be down to unsuccessful treatment/plucking rather than killing.
I’m just wondering if its common for this area to be troublesome to treat? and if anyone has any tips for better insertions in this area? Might it be that the hairs are just stronger here and so need to have the current increased to ‘kill’ them properly?
