Hi, male here, started undergoing electrolysis treatments on my beard around 2 years ago. I got scars on both sides of my chin from my first treatments. Lucky me, right? Long story short, theyâ€™re relatively inconspicuous now, but I had to successfully sue and get treatments (by professionals and myself). Ok, now that this is out of the way, letâ€™s get to the fun part!
My first theory relates to how the electrolysis damage was done in the first place. We did other areas, but only the sides of my chin got scarred. They have a much higher hair density than anywhere else, so Iâ€™ve concluded that because they are so close together, the fast zapping in the same area destroyed a little more than just the hair follicles.
So when Iâ€™ll start my electrolysis again (I took a break after the suing and all that fun stuff), Iâ€™ll ask the electrologist (a new one obviously) to do some kind of thinning (where you donâ€™t treat hairs close together) instead of clearing the entire areaâ€¦ I donâ€™t really see another method suitable for a dense pilosity area that already got scarred, but Iâ€™m down for suggestions.
My next question is a direct expansion to this, which for me would solve the biggest electrolysis mystery of all time (lol)… Does the hair have a higher chance of being destroyed and not come back after being zapped when it has just started growing and pierced the skin (beginning of the anagen phase). Or is that all hearsay and the hair has an equal chance of not coming back anytime in all of the anagen phase (or even the 2 others). Thereâ€™s a lot of mixed info on this. Iâ€™d love to talk to someone who actually tested it and, sorry for my bluntness but, not just another opinion.
Also, Iâ€™d love to test it out myself (for example do one side of my face every 5 weeks or so and let the hair grow a bit, and the other side do it every week as soon as the hairs pierce the skin) just to see after several months which side worked better (or if itâ€™s all the same). But I was wondering if someone already concluded some kind of similar experiment already.
