I’m new here, and I have been reading all your posts and finding them really helpful.
I am just starting electrolysis (blend) on my chin area. I’m 24, female and am light-skinned with dark hair. My problem began when I started tweezing my chin daily 2-3 years ago and they started coming back darker and courser gradually.
I spent 30 min for my first appt last week. She had it on a low setting, and it the redness went away after 20 minutes. My chin was a bit swollen a few days afterwards, although this was hardly noticable.
I’m spending an hour with my electrologist tomorrow. I’ve been growing out my hair for a week and already have a mini beard. It’s horrible and embarrassing. After reading all your posts, I realize that it’s really important to have a good electrologist. I also feel better that others are experiencing the emotional aspect of hair removal. I’ve been obsessing over my chin hairs for this last week, bleaching, trimming and even counting them! There must be a 100, I lose count. I can hardly get any work done. Tomorrow’s appointment can’t come fast enough.
