answers to your questions (will vary with individual, machine and person doing the electrolysis)
“I’ve read some posts on this forum and it seems like everyone getting it done has some sort of rash or red bumps that show up. Is this the normal side effects? Has anyone NOT gotten this? Exactly how noticeable are they?”
Yes it is a normal side effect. I have gotten them. Alot of us get them. Right after treatment the skin might be a little red and bumpy the first time. Very quickly redness will disappear but around 48 hours later scabs can and will form and last for the remaing week or so. Redness, bumbs are noticeable… but they vanish quickly. plus they look like the normal everyday blemishes on ppl’s skin. Scabs are slightly noticeable… but in time they will be gone as well.
PLUS… as treatments go along… the more you do, the less reactions you get and your skin will look as if notihng happened to it. Its only the first time your skin will have “serious” reaction… after that, not much so.
you said : “-How often would I have to go for a visit? Ex. how many weeks between each visit?”
If it is just your upper lip… you can clear it in one sitting in no time. subsequent visits depend on how fast the hair regrows back. USually people go everyweek and then after couple of treatments the hair grows much slower and you can skip a couple of weeks before your next treatment.
“Does hair grow back more fast after electrolysis…is it like shaving?”
No. When the hair is removed by electrolysis, it stays gone for a while. you might notice growth, but that is from other hairs that were not there the first time. the hair will start to grow slower and thinner with more electrolysis treatments until its gone for good!
“-Can you bleach the hair if you are getting electrolysis done?”
well… there wont be hair to bleach! electrolysis is removing the hair!.. but if you are taking a while between treaments and you see hair… then i guess you can bleach it… but remember this will make it harder for your electrolygist to see the hair and treat it. (you wouldnt want that)…also the chemicals in bleaching could tamper with the healing process of your skin so it wouldnt be wise to use it if you dont have to. take precaution.
“What is the Approx. price range per visit?”
that depends on where you are and who’s doing the work. Everyone is different. Generally, you will be charged per time. i.e. 25$ per 30 mins (like what i pay for my treatments)… or something like 15$ per 15 mins. something like that. electrolysis is for sure cheaper than laser.
hope that helps!
