I decided to show a few “injuries from electrolysis.” And this is the first.
Here are two different clients with the same injury (you are looking at the left shoulder areas). Both had previous treatments, and from me too.
On close examination, the skin was scaly, rough and “scar-like.” Most of us would assume that this injury had something to do with “bad” electrolysis … and presume “we did it.” But we didn’t!
The spot you are looking at is where a barbell rests during an upper body workout: both guys “confessed” to this and were aware of the marks.
Point: Often both electrologists and clients assume that some “manifestation” was the result of electrolysis. (In the below cases, the marking wasn’t visible until some hair was clipped or removed.)
Furthermore, what is often termed “overtreatment” is not overtreatment at all!
It gets tiresome that “everything” that looks just a tiny bit wrong is termed “overtreatment” and sends clients into hysterics (electrologists too) … I’m working on a series of photos to highlight this and hope it helps clients (even thought I know it won’t.)
I have often been criticized for showing “scabs and bumps” from my own electrolysis treatments. But if we don’t showcase issues, and try to understand what’s happening, how can we truly progress in this field?
