I was going to a woman (recommended by friends) who does electrolysis at her home for about 11 weeks (1x/week) to have my hairline evened out on the back of my neck. My last visit was last week. From the research I’ve done online, I am pretty sure she uses the galvanic method. My questions: Am I supposed to hold that metal probe in my hand? It is wrapped in a wet piece of gauze. I feel a “buzzing” while she does it, feels kind of like hitting your funnybone. Additionally, my shoulder/arm will wig out and start jumping and twitching uncontrollably and I have no control over it. Is this normal? Finally, is she supposed to be tweezing the hair afterwards?
I have no idea if this is being done right. I have seen a change in hair growth, but not a lot. I think that is mainly b/c she wasn’t going up far enough, even though I told her to. That is the main reason why I stopped going to her. I was being charged $16/15 minutes. She never used the machine more than 5. The probe looked like a wet q-tip on the end that touched my hair and she kinda just rubbed it along the hair, then rubbed something on my neck and I was done.
Please help, as I am looking for another person in my area and I want to make the right choice!!
