I recently read that hyperpigmentation may be caused by debris left behind from thermolysis. I had laser in the past and more recently thermolysis at a professional electrologist’s. I’ve always had freckling on my upper lip when I’m in the sun, but now that I’m staying out of the sun, I notice that I still have a “shadow.” Could this be due to either the laser or thermolysis? If so, what type of electrolysis causes the least residual shadowing. I want to buy a unit to have at home, but the only one I can afford is Uniprobe Lite thermolysis only. The one touch I have now sucks. LOL I guess my bottom line question is what unit is the best for at home in regard to affordability, actually working, ease of use, and not causing hyperpigmentation? Sorry to be a pain. I’m trying to be practical after having wasted tons of money on this whole hair thing over the last few years–and still watching the things grow back in! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />
Fast permanent hair removal requires full clearances scheduled at the optimal spacing of treatment over the course of at least 9 months.
Most people never do their treatment on any kind of schedule that would get to finished any time soon, of ever.
It probably doesn’t matter what you buy, as an unskilled person working backwards on yourself, you probably won’t be able to do this work on yourself without pitting and pigmenting yourself. I have seen horrible self work on people who have given up and come to me.
If you care about your skin, your best bet really is finding the best available electrologist (or travel to one a little farther away) and get this taken care of once and for all.
I wish I could give you an answer that you would like better than that.
