Well, after 15yrs of biweekly plucking and waxing, I finally decided to start an electrolysis treatment for my upper lip.
I just had my first session (15min., I can’t remember the type of machine). It seems pretty baby-ish compared to what some of the people posting on this forum have dscribed, but I was still wondering how best to treat my tender skin and prevent scarring and breakouts.
The woman I saw today spread some cortozone (sp?) lotion on my upper lip after the treatment. She also recommented Cetaphil followed by Neosporin.
Thoughts on this advice? An hour afterwards, I’m doing great so far. Just a little redness and numbess, both of which seem to be rapidly disappearing. I just want to minimize the chances of breaking out and scarring.
