I’m looking into wanting to buy a blend electrolysis machine to teach myself how to do it at home. I’ve done a little research, but before I ask for advice, I have a bit of a unique situation that makes things more difficult for me. I’ve been struggling with chronic illness for the last couple of years. I had brain surgery the end of 2017 and have a few other life long chronic illnesses. Long story short, not only am I struggling with my physical health, I’m watching my hair growth get worse as well and it’s caused my self esteem to plummet. I hate looking at myself, I hate showering because I have to see the full extent of it. It eats at me everyday. I’m married to a good man who says he doesn’t care, but I have trouble believing him. So I’m deciding to channel that self-hatred to do what it takes to get rid of it.
With all that being said, I’m seeing a professional Electrologist (if that’s the correct term?) to take care of a few facial hairs (which aren’t bad) and 6 months in, I’m already noticing a huge difference. My legs, stomach, and bikini line are another story. The hair growth there is bad. Making it to my appointments to get my face done is hard enough when I don’t feel well, I can’t imagine having to stay for longer and coming more often. What I have going on is enough commitment for me already, physically and financially. (Though, I’m glad I’m going to a professional for my face, since I’ve read horror stories about others scarring their faces by doing electrolysis on themselves).
I guess what I’m asking is for advice for my unique situation. If I were feeling better, I would absolutely go get certified by doing a training program. But with not feeling well, that’s not an option for me. I would love advice on the best literature, best online courses or training videos, the best and most efficient machines, resources etc. I’ve done a little research myself and found that blend is probably my best and most effective bet. I do not want to rush this. I understand that this is a craft, and with all crafts, this will take time, education, and dedication to learn and perfect it. I’m ready learn and am ready for anything you guys have to share. Thank you for your time!
