Just joined this forum!I’m considering electrolysis for removing facial hair- chin and sides of face. I have thick dark hair on my chin (about 100+ hairs) and a mix of some dark thick hairs (about 30+) and light, thin but long hairs on sides OF FACE.
I am considering 2 electrologists in my area ( I am in Berkeley, in the bay area- california)I found them online and they both have good yelp reviews and have been in practice for over 20 yrs.
One does ONLY galvanic and looking at my facial growth she has estimated 3yrs(!). I did a test with her (only 1 hair removal) and she had me hold a moist tube with a wet paper towel wrapped around it. I had to say that the thought of ‘holding’ an electrode was a bit nerve racking.
The other electrologist does a blend (uses pedals)and has a ‘Clareblend’ analog machine from 20 yrs ago and is now thinking of buying the same machine in a digital format. She does not give time/cost estimates.
I got threading done on my face a few weeks ago and still have whiteheads and red spots from that. I know I have sensitive skin that breaks out easily.How do I decided which way to go- galvanic or blend??
