I read somewhere the sucess depends on how much moisture you have in your hair. Is it better to warm the area with a wet cloth or put lotion on before you start? Just to increase moisture?
Also, I know that you must remove hair with the ‘bulb’ intact, if you do this, does this mean that you are sucessful and the hair wont grow back? I have also noticed some ‘bulbs’ are larger then others, in the same area, does this make a difference? Some also seem to have a white/clear sheath on them, is this what I want?
I have pulled hairs out that came out easily, but the ‘bulb’ seems to have 'melted"?, it remains as a spot on the skin, and if I gently squeeze the skin, the ‘melted’ part comes out, does this also mean that I destroyed the follicle or is it going to regrow?
Is there an increased chance of ingrown hairs if you dont get the whole follicle done? what are regrowth rates for hairs that come out very easily with bulbs attached?
Also, when I am done, my legs look like I’ve been stung a lot of time by bees, all bumpy and red looking, like chicken skin. The older areas look like little red ‘dots’ like the pore has been enlarged… Is this ok? It doenst normally hurt, it just stings for a couple of days afterwards and the bumps go away, but the ‘dots’ I described are still there…
I also have a tattoo on my ankle that I’ve read I shouldn’t treat myself. I plan on going to a professional to get that area done… I’m thinking its probably the best thing to do right?
Sorry for all the questions, but I’ve been using it on all parts of my body and find big differences in different areas. With all the contortionists poses I’ve been doing to get rid of the buggers, I want to make sure I’m doing this correctly and not wasting my time…
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
