I joined this forum a few weeks after I begun reading it. I had an awakening almost 3 months ago that helped me realize that if you ignore your problems, they don’t go away. So I decided to finally research for an electrologist in my area. I had known about electrolysis being the only permanent hair removal method since 2007, the year I was diagnosed with mild PCOS. I always knew I was hairier than other girls, but I spent many years ashamed of myself and wishing things were different. I didn’t even remove the hair on my face until 2010. It was so hard to face the fact that I was hairy and had a hormonal problem. I just kept wishing the problem away.
Anyhow, I have seen 3 electrologists in my area so far. The first lady was very nice and explained electrolysis to me well. However, she was very expensive compared to everyone else in my area and the sessions were painful. Second lady was plucking about 30-50 % of the time. The third lady was almost going to work. She was the first one whose insertions I didn’t feel. However, when I went back a second time, it was as painful as the first lady, and she wasted a lot of time adjusting her gloves and applying lotion to the area. I wasn’t satisfied.
I found one more lady in my area I will try on Wednesday. After that, I am waiting for a different electrologist in another part of the state who is supposed to be really good, but she doesn’t have any openings yet.
My question is: If this 4th lady doesn’t work out, is sub-par electrolysis where I feel the insertions BETTER than nothing, in your opinions? If this lady doesn’t work out, I’ll just be going back to using a bikini razor on my face until I find a miracle worker electrolysis.
Please let me know your thoughts.
