Hi, I have previously had quite a bit of electrolysis on my face and it hurt like hell at the time and I had to wear Emla cream and take painkillers… (and it was still painful). My electrologist said that heat should be applied until the hair slips out and the hair should not be pulled etc.
Anyway, this worked really well for me even though it was very painful.
I recently moved away and so am unable to see my old electrologist. I found a new one where I live and had a 5 min session with her. She worked on under my chin, I didn’t wear Emla cream and it didn’t hurt that much. I think she may have been pulling the hair out as well but I’m not entirely sure. Also, because she worked on a very small area, I can’t tell whether it worked or not.
I am not sure whether I should go back there and get a larger area done or whether I should look elsewhere. Can anyone tell me if they have had electrolysis that worked that wasn’t very painful and included some tugging of the hair?
Also can anyone tell me if under the chin is not as sensitive as the rest of the face and whether this is why it didn’t hurt that much???
