I have been having a bit of diathermy done on my upper lip. I dont have a lot of hair growth there, just a couple of dark stragglers on the sides of my lip which i used to bleach when they started to annoy me. Anyways I am starting to doubt the place where i have been going (I have only been two times to date, 30, mins and 45 mins each). Im pretty sure Im just being tweezed as i can pretty much feel every hair being pulled out. On occasion when she has really blasted the current in I then feel the hair slide out as I think it should. But this doesnt happen very often and more often then not I think she is just tugging it out. I did mention it to her but she didnt seem overly concerned about it, just saying I had fine skin and she didnt want to damage it. I just wondered whether the current needed to be upped a smidge.
The trouble over here in New Zealand is that there arent very many sole electrologists around as the training is part of the beauty school training. The lady I am going to owns a very popular beauty therapy clinic but (and I dont wish to offend anyone!) I think she is more a beauty therapist then an electrologist, meaning I think she does more facials and massages then electrolysis on a regular basis.
Just wondered if anyone on here is from New Zealand and can recommend someone in the Waikato area (Hamilton and surrounds). I have asked around a few people but no one can suggest anyone or will even admit to knowing about electrolysis! I also feel reluctant going to someone young as I wonder whether they have the expertise required for this? I dont think they need many hours under their belt before they are let loose on the general public. Would that be right?
Any help would be appreciated.
