Ok well I went this morning to have a consultation at Hair Free Electrolysis in Bethesda, Maryland. The office was nice and clean and the lady was very friendly as well. She does all three methods but seems to favor multi-needle galvanic for thicker and courser hairs. I don’t know how effective that is but I was a little dissapointed to hear this. She did a test treatment an hour ago and the area is barely even red anymore. Her certificates were placed prominently on the wall in the treatment room too. But she didn’t seem impressively fast in the treatment. She also didn’t give me a timetable for treatment as to when I should come in, when I could expect to see some results, etc. Is this normal and would she know more as I came in for treatments?
I am looking to find other electrologists in the DC area. I don’t have a car but the metro takes you just about anywhere. I was wondering if anybody knew any other places in Bethesda or areas close to DC. (DC area electrologists do not have to be liscensed.) However there just doesn’t seem to be too many. A Hairtell user with the username “Jessie” has posted enthusiastically several times about a place in Vienna, VA but hasn’t given the name of the place or who she sees there. On Electrolysisreferral.com, it lists two options for Vienna: Vienna Skin (www.vaskin.com), which sorta seems like the Wal-Mart of electrolysis; and LaserPlus Electrolysis Centers, which has three practicing electrolygists.
I really would like to get started soon. I am in DC for this semester and if all goes as planned I will stay until August. I would like to get a head start before I return to TX and have a good portion of the work done so I can finish up there.
Whatever advice or information anybody can provide, please do. I am desperate. I thought a consultation would be a confidence boost but somehow I feel worse than I did before.
