With the recent batch of posts about electrolysis being mostly negative, I thought I’d put my two cents about it.
I am not being discouraging or anything, I’m only trying to be honest.
Some people will not like the electrolysis experience, not that it doesn’t work, but for some it is too much. Electrolysis means having to take some chances-- like they say “Pain for Beauty” or somein’. The sensation experienced during electrolysis is enough to discourage some, even though most can handle it, and then the side effects will discourage the rest who are already hesitant. Not only that, but it is a looonnnggg process and takes patience and consistency.
I’ve had some minor pitting and hyperpigmentation, but you know what? It’s chopped liver compared to the satisfaction of knowing that the hair will be gone…FOREVER. If you really want this hair gone then you will be resourceful enough to find ways to help you out; I use a cream to even out the pigmentation problem and I’m more concious of applying aloe vera and witch hazel daily after each session.
So if you really can’t stand it, then find something else. Like laser or pulse-lighting or all the other options you can find on HairFacts. But trust me, if you have the dedication and courage, then electrolysis is worth it.
