this afternoon i had a blend treatment on the face, but i have experienced swelling and it feels as though my skin cannot get rid of the heat absorbed by the electrolysis. it is 13 hours later and the swelling has increased. i have put ice packs on the area (some hours after) but it still feels so hot, deep.
it was a different tech even though i asked for the same lady as previous, i felt nothing but plucking so i mentioned it and she offered to turn up the settings. i agreed as it seemed pointless to carry on like so. i still felt nothing so she turned it up again.
insertion was bad, i felt the needle a lot, but the electrolysis itself wasn’t that painful at all, not much more than usual, it just got VERY hot after a while. i felt the surrounding area heating up a lot and mentioned this. she said the skin was reacting fine.
now i’m a bit worried as i feel faint and my face is so hot and aches. i will continue with coolerpacks and see how it is in the morning.
so far there is no scabs, though a bumpy patch where she kept going at the same spot.
is this excess heat a usual after-effect of electrolysis?
why does it have to be so hard to get the same tech each time.
