I’ve been on this forum for roughly eight months, however, I have been stalking it like many others for about a year now. Haha! The success stories have blown me away and have really opened up my eyes on how possible and achievable permanent hair removal is within reach.
Although I do know I have many more years of hair development ahead of me (I’m 17), I do have a huge insecurity about my current “issue”. I wouldn’t say I’m over-the-top hairy, but I am definitely hosting an excess of body hair - chest, abdomen, thighs, legs, etc…
I have been going to electrolysis for about two years now because my mum has been going. She got her cheeks, under her lip, chin, and her neck done about six years ago and she goes once every few months now. I did in between my eye brows with amazing results (sometimes I do have sporadic growth with a few thick hairs, but they’re taken care of easily), my lower neck (basically finished it, I’ve been on it for a year now) also with awesome results.
Onto my question:
What method does my electrologist use? I’ve tried looking it up online and matching it with what she does, but no definition actually explains to me what the electrologist does in the midst of the removal. I’ll paint the picture: I walk into her office, sit down on the bed, she throws on a pair of gloves, rubs my face with a wet “nap” (I’m assuming it’s soaked in alcohol or something of the sort), and then she dries it up and inserts the probe into the follicle. She presses a button with her foot and I feel a slight prick, hear a beep, and she pulls the hair out with her tweezers.
Would anyone be able to help me out with this kind of thing? Haha, I’ve already exercised the Search feature, but yielded no positive results.
Thanks a lot in advance!
