I just had a consultation, and ended up getting a quick 30 minute treatment because the consultation went well and she didn’t have another patient for 30 minutes. Anyways, she basically told me what I expected to hear, EXCEPT she said that with blend (her preferred type) it usually takes several treatments per hair follicle to permanently kill it. She said it would grow back thinner and thinner, but that it would take at least a few times before it was actually gone for good. This is contrary to what I have read on here – what should I think?
As far as the treatment, I only felt one or two “plucks” the entire 30 minute treatment. It was blend with a Hinkel UC-3. And this is where I have another concern. The electrologist would step on the foot pedal, and it would beep, but only for half-a-second or so. I was under the impression that blend needs 6+ seconds per hair. For most hairs it would beep about 2-3 times (and i would feel 2-3 short stings), and then she would remove the hair. But it was definitely not anywhere near several seconds, like I think it should have been. Oh, and treatment was on my back, in case anybody is interested.
Overall, she seemed like a decent electrologist, but I am a little concerned–particularly with the short “beeps”. If any of you electrologists could let me know what you think I would greatly appreciate it!
P.S. this was in the Raleigh area. If anybody wants a specific name just private message me!
