Thankyou Michael, I appreciate the above two explanations you have written.
Just to clarify, I wouldn’t say ‘angst’, rather I’m just wanting to be clear on the best procedure/s that will most likely lead to a great outcome - and I would then want to confirm that an electrologist would be working that way, or at least, would have good reasons for working another way they deem more suitable.
Also, the phrase I used above of ‘giving instructions’ wasn’t the right terminology - (my bad) - and instead I should have written more along the lines of what requests and checks I should make when considering an electrologist.
By this I was mainly meaning:
-requesting that they go slow and stay low (powerwise), even if the procedure takes far longer.
to that I would now add: sectioning the area, as you have described.
I’m also wanting to ask:
Does the type of needle make a difference, I have seen references to both gold and steel.
Is there a particular form of electrolysis which is safer for the top lip (e.g. blend, etc).
Re: Training in the UK. It strikes me the UK would do well to introduce a far stricter training requirement, as I am presuming there are many electrologists who had fairly minimal training at the outset of their career, and who are also not required to engage in CPD.
Over the last few years there’s been a lot of political discussion about how various treatments and therapies (and associated training) should be regulated. For example, here is a summary of the state of play in the herbal medicine field. Similar is going on in the psychotherapy/counselling world, as well as in many other fields. I hope the organisation Dee lists in her signature will make similar strides in this direction.
