Just started seeing a new electrolygist after moving, she was shocked to learn I use zensa lidocaine cream and says she’s never had a patient need to use it before other than for upper lip and that electrolysis isn’t so painful that I should absolutely need it and that I’m exaggerating the sensation. She’s got several decades of experience under her belt in this industry.
I find the sensation unbearable if I haven’t used the cream. We are doing Brazilian area via Blend method, but I have similar feelings about thermolysis on other body parts.
Am I really imagining the pain? My whole body tenses and jerks and I cry involuntarily from the pain when she works on an area I haven’t applied the cream to. What else can I do to feel the pain less?
I’m scared of being dropped as a client if she gets fed up with me.
