I want to scream at the top of my lungs to every woman with a hair growth problem. ELECTROLYSIS WORKS!!! I had an elevated Prolactin level which caused abnormal hair growth on my face, and eventually my body as well. I spent over 10 yrs of my life depressed and stressed out over the hair on my face,
I had hair on my upper lip, chin, neck, breasts, and back. I had to spend 45 min to an hour a day plucking hair out of my chin and I still never got it all. (I shaved my upper lip daily, but shaving caused razor burn on my chin, so I resorted to plucking that area) I had a 5 o’clock shadow like a man by the end of the day. It was horrible. I have olive skin tone and dark black hair. All the plucking had caused dark areas of hyperpigmentation and ingrown hairs under my chin that were very noticeable. Now, a year later - I dont have any scarring, no pigment problems - nothing. The dark areas from ingrown hairs are gone. My skin tone is even and my skin is soft to the touch.
I started electrolysis in July 2005 with a one hr session once a week. In the beginning she could barely finish my chin/neck in the hour. It was tough for me because new hair grew so fast and I wasnt shaving/plucking it any longer, but I hung in there. I began electrolysis knowing that it would take at least a year, so I was prepared for that. Just remember, electrolysis is not a quick solution - but it IS a PERMANENT solution.
Now I go once every 3-4 weeks, for mainly my back and a few hairs on my chest. My face only gets a few hairs in between appointments and she clears that in about 5-10 minutes and moves on to other areas. I think I will be totally finished within the next 6 months.
My electrologist is wonderful and she changed my life. It was worth every penny. She used slow thermolysis on me, because the blend method didn’t seem to work on my hairs. Proof that it doesnt matter which type of electrolysis you use, as long as it is done correctly. I live in the Akron/Cleveland Ohio area. If anyone wants to know her name, send me a message.
