I was just wondering what professional electrologists out there recommend for those of us with darker or olive skin that might be experiencing mild hyperpigmentation as a result of electrolysis.
I’ve been using Palmer’s Fade Milk, which contains 2% Hydroquinone. But I recently read with some interest last week’s article in the New York Times about the potentially harmful effects of continued use of hydroquinone (including cancer).
Any suggestions for non-hydroquinone products would be appreciated. I have mild hyperpigmentation as a result of electrolysis on my forearms, tummy, and bikini line. I know it goes away eventually, but I’d like to speed up the process as best I can.
Ps. For those of you newbies, electrolysis works! Hang in there! I’ve been seeing an electrologist approximately twice a month for about 18 months, and I’ve had considerable hair reduction. (To illustrate, I started just on my upper lip, which now needs only touch ups every now and then. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> I’m now working on my bikini and hope to move onto my underarms sometime soon.) It seems never-ending, but it does work! I’m 26 and I wish I had done it years ago.
