I’ve been getting electrolysis on and off for about 5 years and received treatment on my lip, chin and navel area and have never had a problem. However, a new electrologist treated my lip one time for an hour and it was the most painful session I’ve ever had, even after putting on lidocaine for an hour beforehand, as per her suggestion. I’m not sure exactly what she used, but I held on to a probe and I know she used thermolysis and I get a sense that the needle she used was too big for my lip area. I still have scarring, discoloration and pits on my lip area, even after two months of healing. Is there anything I can do to heal my lip?? Currently, I always put on SPF and have started using adapalene, but I’m feeling really discouraged that my lip will permanently look like this and I’ve never felt more self conscious about my face. I’m open to any suggestions about treatments or products that can help minimize the scarring on my face. Please, please help me.
Side note: Here is a picture two months since the treatment. Also, I went to a new electrologist who is qualified and she told me that my face will likely always have this discoloration and pitting:(
