I’d like to take a moment to address hair removal consumers everywhere, as to suggestions on how to handle things such as hair whilst in social isolation or quarantine.
Many electrology businesses, my own included, are now closed , and those that are not, are likely to close soon or with very little notice. This is a problem for many of our clientele who now have had their treatment schedules interupted with little to no notice for as little as a few weeks, or in some cases, as long as months .
The aim of this thread is to help you through this time.While hair removal is unavailable, so to is going to be elective surgeries. so those of you preparing for GRS surgeries, are likely to see these procedures delayed as well. For this reason, if you are doing hair removal for surgical preparatory reasons, please know that you will have the chance to do hair removal.
While no one has ever died from unwanted hair in the history of mankind, lots of people have died already from the COVID 19 virus. For this reason, I am advising you if you have not already, no matter where in the world you are, to please discontinue your treatments immediately if you have not already done so. Please maintain your shelter in place instructions as are being cmmunicated to you in your individual areas.
While shaving is not normally recommended while doing electrolysis by many electrologists, it remains the best way to remove the hair on a temporary basis while in quarantine. Please I urge you do not pluck or wax hair while in quarantine or social isolation. We will all be back to normal as soon as is possible, but in the meantime plucking or waxing can and will mae hair issues worse. We will all be there to help you when this is all over, and by refraining from plucking, you are making the overall process of hair removal better for you.
Yes, there will be an adjustment to the amount of time over which hair removal must be performed. Expect this. But rest assured that hair killed by electrolysis up until now, remain dead. You will not lose your progress. Those working from home or i social isolation can take solice in the fact that no one can tell if you have hair from 6-10 feet away. Only you have to know . When the time comes this is all done, we will be there to help you catch up.
The best thing that consumers can do at the moment, is not panic and protect your health.
I invite all of my co-electrologists to submit their tips and tricks and pieces of advice to this thread as well. We can get through this.
