I have been going to an electrologist since october 1997.
I live in a capital city of a small country in South America, and she is one of the few to perform electrolysis.
I visited all the practitioners here, and she is without a doubt the one with the most modern equipment, the more responsibility, the best skills and the most reasonable prices.
The thing is… I can’t find anyone better than her, I know… and still, after all these years, I still am not done with my bikini area.
For three years I went there once a week, religiously. After all the time and money spent, I had to start going every two to three weeks. I have less hair, but I think I should be finished by now!!!
The thing is… she uses the blend method, I can’t detect any mistake or flaw in the way she works, she uses a high setting… but I still grow hair!!!
It’s been 6 years almost!!!
The only thing I could be doing wrong, MAYBE??, is that I tweeze between treatments, but I have to! as I live in a tropical country, have to be with a bathing suit all the time, and that shaving causes red bumps, ingrown hairs and even darkened the area.
As I still always have hairs to treat for the next session, and that sooner or later the tweezed hairs were, are or would be here to be treated, I decided to go on plucking.
But why won’t they never stop growing???
I don’t have an hormonal imbalance, I am rather hairy there, with dark hair, noticeable because I am really white, but I don’t have an hormonal imbalance, it is just a constitutional thing.
I never get scabs, scars nor problems with the areas she treats. I am certain that she is good, and the other electrologists I saw were BAD! Except for maybe two or three hairs during a whole 20 minutes session, I never feel plucked. She removes them with the tweezer, and maybe only 3 of them average sting a little, making me think that maybe those 3 were not killed. But the rest are ok! it is not like she is just plucking only my hairs!!!
I also have tried laser, and while it got me bare for about a month each time, the hair grew back.
My hormones are ok, so what the heck is going on? and what might be causing the unsuccess with electrolysis?
Yep, I have less hair, and less thick, but this is becoming non-stop, and the laser disappointed me because it really didn’t last and was ultra expensive (I had alexandrite, and it is the only one that removed hair for a while, the Flashlamp didn’t work at all!).
HELP! I need advice!!!
