I’d like to give an update on my situation, and I have wonderful news.
Josefa could see me two times during my stay of a week in the Malaga region.
I was very impressed by her kindness, clear and informative communication, as well as results.
I arrived for the first treatment with Josefa looking like this:
She offered me the possibility of getting local anesthetics by a doctor, but I didn’t think I’d need it. I was so happy to be there and eager to get rid of the hair, I wasn’t worried about pain.
She examined the area and started working. Contrary to the electrologist in Belgium, she watches the hair from very close, with magnifying glasses. The one in Belgium didn’t use them and was pretty far from my skin. It made me wonder if the scabs/wounds I had after the Belgian treatment weren’t due to poor vision.
Anyway, while treating me, Josefa also explained me things about my skin and electrolysis.
When she finished my chin, I’ve asked if she could also do some big, thick hairs on my upperlip. Instead of doing just them, she proceeded to clearing the whole upper lip and around the corners of my mouth and below it.
I actually closed my eyes and tried not to cry, because this meant so much to me. I entered her beautiful clinic looking like a man, and I’d leave it looking like a woman.
She also cleared my face from those yellow things under the skin that I had had forever.
In total, she had been busy on me for about three hours.
After it was done, I was in a different world, looking at the new face in a mirror. Too happy to put into words what it meant to me.
So, THAT was electrolysis! Nice to meet you!
As Josefa had explained to me, it was pretty swollen for a few days, something normal in the healing process.
Scabs? I didn’t see any in the first days. Perhaps there were some, but too small to be seen. What a precision!
On day 5, I went back to Josefa’s clinic for a second treatment.
Josefa was on a mission! She chased and treated all hair from the area. Again, I was touched by her attention to detail, her dedication.
When it was over, she found recipients where to put some antiseptic product so I could even travel with it back home.
Today, it’s day 8 if that second treatment with Josefa counts as day 1.
In the photos below, I’ve written 3rd treatment, because I’m counting like this:
1st treatment in Belgium.
2nd treatment was my first with Josefa, in Spain.
3rd treatment was my second with Josefa, in Spain.
I hope I’m going back to Spain to see my angel again in June, to get rid of whatever hairs grow between now and then. Because of one thing I’m sure: after experiencing real electrolysis, no way I’ll trust my face to anyone else.
