I had my second-ever electro treatment yesterday. Thermolysis for 1/2 hour on chin, 1/2 hour on upper lip. This was a new electrologist. (I’m trying different people, like you guys recommend.) She put Emla on the upper lip and spent a lot of time working on the area just under my nose. It hurt a lot, but she said that’s just how that area is.
I would feel the zap pain of the current, and then when she’d pull those hairs out, it hurt again. Since I had Emla, it’s hard to say if she was tweezing them out or if this sensation is normal. Anyone have any thoughts on how I should assess this person?
