-Treatment #1 - Seeking for responses
I am a male and having a little hair on my cheeks which I want to be removed as I am tired to shave this part every day just to make my beard looking better. We used the Apilus. It was the Galvanic I think (I forgot ) as he said I have lots of salt in my skin and it is good.
It didnt hurt so much - maybe a little more than a hair tweez.
The Electrologist used something at the begining to open my pores - some “Roller” with a cold kinda Gel thing on it on my both cheeks. Then he started to do it. I DID felt a little “tick” or something like that when the hair came out, i felt it on almost ALL HAIR. I have read here that I supposed to feel nothing but I did feel a tiny - little thingy so I dont know … (is it OK or should i feel NOTHING AT ALL? Need help here!), BUT there where some bigger hairs which I have felt it as tweezing. I have said to him that “it was NOT GOOD” but he answered that the hair was too big - I think he meant that the root was to big, and when the pore is a little smaller, then it feels like tweezing when it comes out. (I have read on this forum similiar things). But it was with a few hairs (4-5) and then, what could I say more? Anyway I hope everything will be good, thought I am very suspicious that some of the hair (5-6) was tweezed. Or maybe not all of the hair can be succesfully treated - I mean the Electrologists are also humans and not machines and sometimes it may be so… Or am I just trying to cool my self down… Well as long as it wont get worser.
Also in the middle of the treatment (I have asked for mirror during the treatment to see the reaction of my skin) I have seen a white spot with tiny point of blood in the middle of it. That is NOT GOOD is it? Now it has disappeared but I have a tiny scab on that place.
Sometimes the Apilus BEEPED but he waited until the second beep and only then took out the needle (we used the lowest setting). Is it OK? Or should he used a higher setting and with only until one beep? On some hairs he tried it more then 2 times (3 times) as far as I know its not supposed to be more then 2 times.
Also I have asked about the “one touch epilator” if it works but he did NOT know about this one, maybe he is just not updated or maybe this means I should change my electrologist?? He used Magnifying Glasses and after the treatment he used some DISINFECTING thing which looked like a light bulb and it sent some kind of an electricity to the treated parts of my faces (he said that because alcohol is not good for the skin , duh). He explained to me what it is and I tried to remember the name written on it but I have forgotten both - probably because I was worried about other things :\ . Also we didnt removed all the hair on that part - some smaller and lighter hairs were leaved there - he asked me if i would like to do them now, but there will be more irritation of the skin, so I said no and we have an appointment in the next week.
-I will write after my every treatment how it was and if it all goes well-
Right after the treatment the skin had redness but it passed away in an hour or so. Now (2.5 Hours later) I have very little redness on my skin. After the treatment I put some Ice for 15 minutes and after about one and half hour (when I got home) put the Aloe Vera Gel (it says on it that its an extract of Aloe Vera).
If you have any questions I will answer them , and if you are Electrologist then please respond to the things written here. Thank you.
P.S. I really couldnt make it shorter :T
