I have been reading up on electrolysis for several years now, and I have finally made my first appointment! I am a 27-year-old male with lots of really gross hair growing above my beardline! I also have pretty bad ear hair for a 20-something, but I figured I would start with my face. I figure since this hair is closer to my eyes, it’s probably more noticeable during conversations! It has gotten to the point where I hate looking in the mirror!
I found someone in my area who does flash thermolysis. Based on what I have read on this site, this is a very effective method as long as the technician knows what he or she is doing. The eloctrologist told me that since hair grows in a three-year cycle, it could take about this long for effective treatment. She told me that treatment intervals would spread out as I continue to have work done.
So, my questions…
What should I be looking for to know if my electrologist is effective?
What should it feel like?
How can I prepare for my first appointment? (I.E., pre-treatment, post-treatment)
I have a consultation scheduled, but I didn’t really get into a lot of my questions on the phone with my electrologist because I figured she would tell me everything I need to know during the appointment.
Any responses would be greatly appreciated!
