I have a story to tell but also if anyone could please answer my question i’d greatly appreciate it. I’m very worried.
Does anyone know if pitting and scarring from overtreatment ever heal?
I have been having thermolysis method done to my bikini area for about a year and a half and my last 2 treatments I was definately overtreated. The second to last treatment I had mentioned that I was concerned with the way my skin was reacting to the high setting and she said that she wasn’t worried…well I was worried so i insisted that she turn it down. She did but obviously not enough because when i left I had a million white pustules(i’ll call them that for a lack of better explanation) I told her that I had read on here that this meant overtreatment and that they were burns and she still insisted that she wasn’t worried and of course they would heal in time. I had scabs and swelling for weeks after and some scars because of the scabs falling off from normal friction. When I went back for my next treatment I stressed again that I was not happy and that I didn’t want to see any white pustules and that I wanted her to turn it down. When I left i had millions of little scabs that were long from her lying the needle at the wrong angle and some really big scabs that joined together to create a lot of pain. I’m mostly writing this to warn people if you think you are being overtreated to stop the treatment right away. I knew to do this but she kept insisting that it was all normal and it would heal. I had chunks of skin that were missing basically. Needless to say I have not been back to get any more treatments from her. I have alot of pitting and some scars that are not healing at all. I will try and post an attachement for people to see what was done to my skin, it has taken me a month to write this post because I was so upset about the whole thing but I knew that I had to so that other people don’t have this happen. I hope this doesn’t scare anyone from getting electrolysis but just to make sure that you know and are confident in what is not right. I will try and post the pictures also.
I’d appreciate any replys to my question above.
