Current Hours: 15
Lately have been seeing effects of my 8th electrolysis appointment. I recently switched from a very nice female electrologist to an equally nice male electrologist; unfortunately both of them are an hour away!
My first electrologist had 6 years in the industry. She uses an Apilus xCell. I was going every two weeks, for 2 hours. My second has 35+ years in the industry. He uses a Silhouet-Tone ThermoBlend 328 and his sessions are 1 hour each, every two weeks.
He was shocked when I told him my electrolysis was taking 2+ hour long appointments, and noticed the discoloration in my chin area. My previous electrologist was super nice and really patient, however she was very slow and constantly had to rezap hairs that hadn’t released yet.
My once a day (morning) routine is
- CosdeBaha Hyaluronic Acid
- CosdeBaha Peptide Forumula
- CosdeBaha Azelaic Acid/CosdeBaha Vitamin C
(I swap every other day, only recently started using the Vit C about two weeks ago)
- Biore UV Aqua Watery Essence SPF 50++++
I’m off on the weekends so for Saturday and Sunday I usually just put the Hyaluronic Acid and Peptide formula to give myself a break.
I don’t wear makeup at all, although currently I’m considering a skin tint
Since my 8th appointment, I noticed the hyperpigmentation was darker than what I’m typically used to. His machine is quite stronger, and while he’s not hurting me and is quite quicker, I’m wondering if there’s anything I can do to reduce the dark spots.
I’d love some advice! I’m thinking of doing a Hydrafacial and Carbon Laser peel combo once the scab stage is complete for 3 sessions to start.
Current photos are about 3 days of hair growth. I have my 9th appt on Dec 1st. My new electrologist wants 5 days of hair growth, no more no less.
