Ok I’m beginning to worry about this, after a few online friends voiced concern.
I had my first electrolysis session 5 years ago but I was burned on my cheek and stopped going (still have a small scar from it). Earlier this year I decided to use LHR since that seemed faster to me at the time. I had five sessions and except for my chin and lip areas I am somewhat pleased with the results.
Since LHR didn’t seem to work on my lip/chin area I decided to see an electrologist again. A friend recommended someone in my hometown who apparently has a good reputation. My friend’s face looks wonderful anyway.
So I had a 30 minute session two weeks ago where she cleared a little off my cheeks and chin. Then last Saturday I went back for a 60 minute session. I didn’t offer any instructions, but she knows I have a show in NYC early next month and took it upon herself to concentrate solely on my chin.
My chin was swollen horribly afterwords, and expected as much since she warned me during the session. But three days later my chin is still swollen and looks like somebody used a cheese grater on parts of it.
Should I be concerned about this?
Had I known this was going to create a huge ugly scar on my chin I would have elected to continue with LHR a while longer. I’ve been scarred once by electrolysis, but I was assured that wouldn’t happen again.
I called her this afternoon and spoke with the receptionist who said that sort of reaction was normal. I don’t know… maybe I should drive by so the actual electrologist can see it first hand.
