So yesterday I had my first session ever, it was 5 hours long and I was determined to get through it.
Before I set off I had washed my face with surgical soap.
Reached Glasgow, had a little chat with Mairi. She is a lovely lady and I am very happy that she is my electrologist.
Mairi used Picoflash on me
Before we got started Mairi wiped my face with antiseptic wipes, and we started on my hairline and sides (between eyebrows and hairline). We spent 1.5 hours on my forehead and then moved on to the middle brow for 30 mins.
We had about half hour break as I was hungry, and I’m sure Mairi was too. After the break we started on the forehead again for another hour.
We then moved onto the upper lip which I had applied EMLA on as when I used to get it threaded it would really hurt so I knew I couldn’t go without EMLA , we spent 40 mins on the upper lip until I couldn’t handle anymore.
Then for the remaining time we moved back onto the forehead and then did some eyebrows and finished off doing above the eyebrows.
Unfortunately we didn’t get a clearance due to time restrictions but I am hoping to see Mairi again in March.
From looking at the photos I can see my hairline isn’t even so next time might go a little higher on my right side, what do you guys think?
When Mairi was working on my eyebrows I was looking in the mirror, I didn’t have too much taken off as I don’t know about the shape so I will assess that, Usually when I used to get it threaded it would be slim but I don’t think I want them too thin now.
I didn’t find it painful, the sensation was weird, I cant really describe it, a bit into electro on my forehead my leg twitched with each “zap” which got quite annoying for me.
I had taken Ibuprofen on the train as I started to get a migraine.
I was a little swollen and red but that’s about it.
When I got home I used the surgical soap again and some Iodine and went to bed.
1 day after treatment, I am still slightly swollen, and have pin point scabs, and some whiteheads. When I woke up I washed my face with the soap again and then applied some aloe.
I don’t feel the area to be tender or itchy as yet. Lets see how I go
Here are some pics when we finished treatment… and I took one on the train, its not clear as I couldn’t get the camera to focus due to the moving of the train.
My husband had accompanied me and he was a star throughout, he was very patient whilst I was having my treatment done <3
PS. Apparently I look like the hulk according to my lil bros
