Thanks for the input Barbara.
I had tweezed for about 3 years before electrolysis, and threaded for about 8 years before that. I think I started to get coarse hairs from tweezing.
The first 2 months of electrolysis I went every 3 weeks and got total clearances of the coarse hairs on my chin and upper lip. Then I started going for an hour once a week. For a couple of months in the summer I had a bad electrologist and the number of coarse hairs kept increasing. I think in November I started going 3 times a month for 1 hour each, which I’m still doing.
My female relatives do have hair issues. I am not overweight at all. I don’t know if I have hormonal issues. I take Retin-A and antibiotics for acne.
I only had maybe an hour to 1 1/2 total done on my brows, the rest is mostly my face.
I’ve had some bad ingrowns on my chin. I think some have been there for 6 months at least. You can see them under the skin, but they don’t come out. Other ingrows have come out eventually.
It’s not unusual at all for me to have new coarse hairs pop out a few days after a treatment. That’s why I go so often.
I shouldn’t be growing new coarse hairs every 9 days between treatments. I thought even if you have a hormonal problem, you grow new hairs slowly.
