I have been to three electrologist offices and they each use clareblend Ultrablend. The machine doesn’t look computerized, is it? What are the benefits? I’ve recently started two-timing my electrologist and I’m thinking about switching.
My regular electrologist uses the Clareblend/autoblend/ultrablend with the clareblend setting. When she did some hairs on my upper pecs I felt pain and muscle contractions all around the area and my chest, when she does my neck my face contorts! My back can look scabby for a couple weeks afterwards and I have red spots and brown spots which aren’t disappearing fast. The current meter on the machine is flying back and forth because I think she isn’t making good contact with the probe and that is no fun to feel it pulsing on and off. There is a welt like a mosquito bite with a light center and pink ring after she is done. I scab often. I swear I smelled burning hair once, is that normal? She spends average of 4 seconds per hair.
The other electrologist is fast, spends about 1 second per hair and does blend, but is this effective? She uses a slightly smaller machine that is just called a clareblend ultrablend. There is a small red dot afterwards that is gone in a day or two and a lot less pain. There is a pulling sensation on the hair when she works and I asked her about it. She says the hairs are sliding out. Maybe she is coaxing them more than the other electrologist, I never feel the hair come out typically.
I think I am going to switch, but I wonder is this hair going to come back because of the different treatment.
