Its been many months since I first posted here, asking you some questions about electrolysis… and then proceeded to go ahead with it, over the laser option (mostly due to hearing about laser causing dormant follicles to start growing hair in areas, and not working at all for others)I wanted a sure-fire method, albeit expensive and very painful.
I started multi-galvanic sessions , approx 2/3 hour sessions every 7-10 days at the start of october 04. I went continuously and consistently until end feb.05, and took a 3 month break from march this year.
(multi-galvanic although understandably slower ,seems to be the standard method in sydney, as every single place I have contacted (10+) employs it,with but one doing thermolysis,but only for women.
I am 25,with medium-dark brown hairs.
My goal initially was to achieve hair freedom of my upper arms, shoulders and most of back (all of which have patchy,low-medium density areas of relatively thin and somewhat coarse hair). The hair is sporadic in places, with small and large patches in others, but on the whole is not at all uniform or dense like my front.
I Have racked up 42 hours treatment timenow in total. plus a few thousand
$$AUD has been spent. My results so far are but a thinning out of the top part of my upper arms, and the top part of the shoulders only. The shoulder blades and back have not even been commenced upon, and at no stage in any area thus far have I achieved any complete clearance,not even once.The furthest I have gotten since october 04 is a “thinnning out” of the shoulder tops (which is mostly the only area we have worked and do work on every 2-3 hour session)
Q1. Should I have at least by now cleared the area (if not some more areas) fully? even at least a first time total clearance?
Q2 Am I being scammed ?.. because I personally dont believe I have very thick,dark,dense or even very comprehensive hair growth
in the areas I stated, yet in 9 months have still not reached a first clearance of even 1 area, let alone even commenced on the back ,lower part of-upper arms and shoulder-blade areas that I want done ultimately.
q3. The sessions are unbearably painful. whilst the current is expectdly painful, it is the actual insertions that are causing me the most pain. Are they supposed to be felt , and to be so painful too? is that normal? .I thought it should just be the current felt. The place uses standard size probes, and gave me a story about how they can tell that theyre right for my follicles, when I dont recall my electrologist ever conducting any measuremnts of my follicles or anything?
q4 I know that multi-galvanic (32 probe machines every time) can be rather slower than other methods, but should it really be going this slowly, at this stage, and after this many hours?
q5 How far along do you belive I should be by now, in all honesty? , and Do you have any suggestions as to what I can do to realise my objectives (which 9 months ago, were due for realisation this very month) ??
anything would be greatly appreciated
down and out in Sydney,Australia
ps…many thanks in advance
