I have very fine, long dark hair on my face that I need removed as it is noticeable. I want to ask three questions before continuing with my new practitioner. My practitioner uses thermolysis with an insulated probe. I never have scabs, just redness for 1 hour after and then the skin looks like normal. I have very fair, very sensitive skin, that my practitioner says is like porcelain. I am wondering 3 things:
- Is is possible to get pitted skin/scarring even if you do not get scabs and skin looks like new after 3 hours? After reading several posts and hearing that damage is cumulative, I got concerned and I fear I see little pits almost like an enlarged pore.
- Because of my fair delicate skin, would it be better to use blend and be less likely to have damage in then long run? I fear any pitting after reading Kel’s post, I feel so bad for her and want to protect myself.
- My practitioner recently switched the heat lower for a longer duration (3 Seconds at a 3 vs. 1 second at a 4.25) due to one bad treatment. Is this okay or is my skin more likely to be damaged due to the longer duration??
