Hi. I am a practicing electrologist, fully qualified for the last 3 years. I would be very grateful if those of you out there who are much more experienced than I am, please could help me with an issue I have. A client of mine comes to me for removal of upper lip hair. Her hair is not very thick but dense with a lot of fine hairs. I use the miltiplex setting on my Apilus using a strong current. Some of the hairs come out very well, whereas several are being plucked. I’m hesitant to switch to blend due to the length of time it takes. But I am going to try that next time as some of these hairs just refuse to be released otherwise. Some of these hairs get plucked as if there has been no impact by electrolysis at all. I can see that some of these hairs have distorted follicles due to their direction of growth. However I’m just not that happy about using blend on the upper lip due to the level of discomfort as well as the higher chance of skin damage. Am I correct in my reasoning, and does anyone have any advice please?
Another question is about positioning. I’m interested to know whether you prefer to stand behind the client or to sit when providing electrolysis on this area.
