well I didnt even start doing electrolysis until I was in my 40’s ( full beard removal) so, there goes your age theory.Actually my experience is that the skins ability to heal is not inhibited by age, I have a 89 year old client who heals just fine!
Skin reactions fade over a period of time so its really difficult now years later to put a timeline on it I’m sorry. But for example, last september I did a few minutes of self work in thermolysis on my eye and ended up ( I thought) putting a permanent slit into my eyelid. Well I just did an update to that because 8 months later there is no evidence of having ever occurred. The beat up skin resolved i would think, the visible part at least over 8-9 months, btut the entire process takes 18 months to complete.
What did I do during the 18 monthhealing process? Well, I did more electrolysis, on other people
Today there is no evidence of any scarring anywhere on my face. So yes I would say it has improved over 100 % In general this is how it goes as electrolysis continues there is short term inflamation but after ceasint he skin returns to normal and to a better condition than it was pre-electrolysis.
If you have any true scarring ( Which I dont believe you do ) there is microneedling, which I’ve never had done and found the idea of pretty frightening at first, but I have heard reports of it reducing the appearance of scarriing by jumpstarting the healing process of the skin. But again, I dont believe you have scarring. It is possible the makeup is causing inflamation of the treated follicles. Many believe this shoulfnt happen with hypoallergenic makeup, but I always warn away from its use. Basically anything put on the skin can irrritate and contaminate freshly treated skin.
You’ll hear me say this alot around here Juniper. "Dont sweat the skin reactions, and dont fixate on the small stuff. " At 5 weeks from treatment the terrain is stil rearranging itself quite a bit.
