Hi there. I am currently a transgender woman undergoing electrolysis on my thick, coarse dark beard hair (my tech is using thermolysis). I just wanted to understand something more clearly with regards to scars.
I’m told that should scars appear, they only appear after months. Generally about half a week after I finish a session with my tech, my skin seems like the swelling and slight pinpoint scabbing is completely gone, and it looks pretty nice and smooth in the treated area, with just the expected hair stragglers. I guess I’m kind of paranoid, but if the skin looks like that after about half a week, would I still have to worry about the potential of suddenly coming across onset scars in these areas down the line (knowing the skin takes a long time to heal after treatment?) Like I’m worried everything looks good now but I’ll check the mirror months down the line and it’ll look like uneven texture or boxcar / icepick scars on the treated area that I just then notice. Sorry if this sounds like a silly question, my anxiety really flares up when it comes to hair removal because of the fear of things going wrong over such a long time period. Basically when should I not have to worry about the potential to scar?
