I finally went in for my first consultation and have mixed feelings about the whole experience. Here is my experience:
-the office was quite small
-the lady seemed really suprised that I brought notes with me to ask her questions
-I found it interesting she said electrolysis is permanent except for the face because of hormone changes
-She has been practising for about 14 years, she has been at the particular location for almost 5 years.
-She said her equipment was 3 and a half years old and is “computerized”
-She had me lie down and take a look at the hair (upper lip) but I told her I didn’t want to try out the actual procedure b/c i wanted to think about it first. She was really surprised at this and said it was free, and she’d never had anyone not want to go through with it during the consultation
-she said she doesn’t use gloves but uses an antiseptic wash instead, and she uses disposable needles.
- she does all three types of electrolysis but would do thermolysis on me b/c blend was too time consuming (I think that’s what she said.)
Here is some quotes from her brochure:
“Remove unwanted and unslightly hair Permanently and Gently with the SEQUENTIUM system. SEQUENTIUM is an advanced form of Electrolysis that used variable modulated currents for a more comfortable and permanent treatment”
Her prices were reasonable: $16-15 min.
$26-half and hour $37-45min. etc. (All Canadian).
Anyways, what do you guys think?? Personally, I’m still debating between electrolysis and Laser even though laser is a lot more expensive, just b/c laser seems so much more like the safer option. If anyone could help me out in my decision it would be greatly appreciated.
