i have had two electrology appointments so far. i’ve had a life long battle with facial hair (28 year old female, italian hertiage). my electrologist is using thermolysis.
after each treatment (both times were 40 mins. with about 120 hairs being removed each time), i am noticing a TON more stubble coming in (i am shaving). is this normal? how many treatments can i expect before i start to see less hairs coming in?
a few more questions:
i am shaving between treatments and am wondering what the best way to cover up the stubble is. i don’t shave for about a day a half before the treatment and it’s damn embarassing. however, the shaving is wrecking my skin. it really looks like a mess.
i seem to be getting more acne in the areas being treated (chin). any reason for this?
after this last treatment (she had turned up the “voltage”), i have little red/brown markings on my face. they look like little scabs, but only seem like they are covered with a thin layer of skin. are these burns? does this mean she’s doing it wrong, or do we just need to turn the machine to a lower voltage?
i have not had my hormone levels tested, but will be doing that soon. if i DO have a hormone problem, is electrolysis not possible, or does it just take 10X as long?
any help would be greatly appreciated.
