Okay so i just had my first consultation for beard electrolysis! (neck, chin, lip, cheek, sideburns). basically the female practicioner gave me a semple of how it feels to have hair removed and how the different settings feel.
It was an interesting FREE consultation. Basically because my hair is coarse african-american hair
she claims the schedule would need to be 2hrs every other week for a mininum of 2 years and a max of 5 years.
At $100/per hr ($200 dollars for a 2 hr session) and that it would be painful and expensive.
she gave an example of how Trangender Men on hormones and how its easier on them
and she even claimed that regular males doing beard electrolysis usually quit cause they can’t stand the pain long term.
when she plucked a few hairs out…it wasn’t that painful it felt like a sharp ‘pinch’
she claimed some numbing cream anesthetic would help numb the pain. especially in the neck area cause that skin is more sensitive.
but she was very adamant about how FULL beard electrolysis on the (check, neck, chin, upper/lower lip, sideburns)
is a painful, expensive and long-winded multi-year process for a regular male with coarse african american hair like mine.
she joked “by the time you’re finsihed on the beard you’ll have spent enough money to buy a new car”
she was a fiesty older lady but she meant well and was just being brutally honest.
any feedback from the experienced folks here would be greatly appreciated
