Sorry Star I didnt mean to put you off I was called away for a few hours. I’m not here on hairtell very much right now, mostly due to health issues with my family.
It may have been me who mentioned it, but as I said it’s not something I talk about a lot around here … That said, the reference I gave you ( Josefa Reina) is about all you need to truly research it. It’s reference to something called the “3 clearance method” a method puioneered by my friend and colleague Josefa. I suppose I dont see this referenced very often by consumers anymore, so it through me for a bit of a loop.
What you heard was true.Here’s how it works. You see Josefa has been performing this strategy for more than 40 years. There’s only a few of us in this world who even attempt it. It has to do with removing all the hair, regardlesss of the cycle of growth, and maximizing the hair available for each treatment. In so doing the electrologist is stacking the “odds” of success in their favor. Josefa, would go after each hair she treated “Like it is the most important hair of her career” and subsequently she ends up disabling hte follicle . By maximizing the hair available for treatment, and also treating each hair so thoroughly, she reduces the number of treatments to once per hair cycle, and then limits the number of hair cycles to effect complete and permanent removal. So, in most cases, Josefa is provinding a complete and permanent removal, in 3 treatments.
This is, beyond amazing. So amazing that virtually no electrologist except for an elite few , have been able to accomplish it. They include people like Michael bono, Beate Ritzert, and I try, but I am not at Josefa’s caliber.
Does this mean if you arent able to accomplish this, and do shave, ( or pluck) it means the removal must be completed over a greater number of cycles of growth. A cycle of growth can vary, from 3-5 months or bit bore, and so Josefa spaces her treatment every 3-5 months in order to maximize the hair there, present and ready to be treated, in situ in the follicle. It doessnt matter what stage of the cycle the hair is in, if it is there and untouched, we can destroy the hair follicle.
But yes, the answer is, the amount of ( length of time) over which the complete removal does increase with factors like plucking or shaving are taken place, but the total treatment time ( the total time to completely destroy all the hair spent on the table recie3ving treatment) should not change).
I use this consult all the time to demonstrate the concept of a hair cycle of growth to my new consumer clients. I’m not used to seeing it spewed back to me, in almost the same manner as I talk about it during a consult in other places, so I guess it caught me off guard.
Edit: sorry if any of that doesnt make sense, it’s late and I dont have time to edit the response properly.It also seems like all the other electrologists got pissy and left so I may be the only one coming in here right now., and I’m just barely coping with my workload as is)
