Hi! Trying to decide if electrolysis would be best for me. I’ve read a lot of info here, but still have questions. I’m female, a mix of polynesian & caucasian, so I tan very easily, rarely sunburn & hair is dark. My coloring is similar to people of Mexican/Latin descent. Interested in having upper lip done. I currently wax & tweeze, which has caused pigmentation problems, to the point where my skin grays when I’m in the sun. I’ve ruled out laser, if it’s not gauranteed permanent, I don’t want to waste time & money & my skin can’t take much more possible damage. I understand the need to find someone skilled and with lots of experience.
#1: On average, someone w/my description, how many treatments would that area take, using the Blend method?
#2: I understand facial hair can be or is mainly hormonal. Does taking birth control have any effect while receiving treatments?
#3: In regards to pigmentation, will electrolysis make my situation worse?
#4: Andrea, I read in one your posts in 9/02, it can take a year or years to see scarring resulting from electrolysis (done improperly, I assumne). Does this mean, you don’t necessarily see what your skin or actual results are til years later?
#5: With electrolysis, I understand it can possibly make dormant follicles produce hair. I do have facial hair, but only want upper lip done. Will this just lead to more & more needed electrolysis after completing the initial area I went in for?
When a area is completed (facial area), does it leave a definition (borders) or evidence that work was done in that area? And do people’s pores eventually go back to normal (generally speaking) after completeing treatment plan?
I’m sorry to bombard people, but I can’t find these answers in relation to what I want to have done. Appreciate your answers!! Would love to read other’s experiences with the upper lip area.
