Something I am “guilty” of in my own practice is to fail to provide the “constant consultation”. I explain the expectations the client should have in the beginning of treatments, then figure the client will remember…
Hair grows in cycles that are not synchronized, so individual hair follicles are in a constant state of growing - shedding - resting - growing - shedding - resting - and not all at the same time. The electrologist can only work on the hairs that are visible at the appointment. Under the best conditions treated hairs should be gone at the first treatment, however, there are many more hairs in the shedding and resting phases that cannot be treated until they decide to grow. So, electrology treatments result in a progressive decrease in your currently growing hair.
One way to recognize affective treatments is with scheduling treatments according to the electrologists recommendation. As the treatments progress, the length of time used to remove the hair should decrease - because the amount of hair has decreased.
So, Cathy, have the appointments become shorter in duration and/or are you seeing more time between the appointments? How long were the first appointments and how long are the present appointments?
