Well, I finally did it! I had my first treatment today!! After lots of researching and a couple different consultations, I found an electrologist. She has 22 yrs experience, is a CPE, extremely professional, spent tons of time answering all my questions. I really felt comfortable with her.
She used the multi-needle galvanic on me (I’m having my stomach done, which are some very coarse hairs). Each hair was treated for 3 minutes (I felt a slight burning sensation,nothing unbearable), and then I would feel an occassional tug/pluck. Does this sound about right? I’m a little confused on the whole “plucking after treatment” thing. Also, is three minutes too long per hair? I know it varies with the Galvanic method.
When it was over, I felt fine - no redness or soreness. Even now, 5 hours later, there are just those tiny little pinprick scabs. I can hardly notice them.
Overall, I felt like it was a great experience. Can any one answer my questions/give me some feedback? I’d appreciate it.
