Thanks Seana, I feel better after reading this. The electrologist told me to be patient and get something called dermaseptic made for after treatments.

It was unlike anything I have ever experienced. The bumps were in some cases like bubbles and I could feel the pressure (I won't go into gory detail). That didn't happen when I had electrolysis previously so I don't think it is allergy. She does wea

Gosh, where to start with this one. Well, I guess by shooting down some of the obvious misconceptions on your part. This is normal to be mislead by some concepts that havent been communicated to you or understood by you.No one starts with all the in

A little background: I am pale with sensitive, clog prone and acne prone on my chin (mainly due to the hair). I had laser hair removal on my chin years ago which only caused more hair. For years I have been tweezing. I tried electrolysis years ago

The school in quebec is likely academie-dectro. As well as manufacturing machines for treating skin anomolies, they have advanced skin care courses as well. Quebec has almost no laws on what estheticians can and cannot do.It sounds like BC is tighten

Hi kim, this is quite alarming news from BC. The guidelines for inspection and sterilization vary as you know province to province. I'm in Ontario and happily using my prestige 2100 without issues from the health department. They are certified as

The rationale from your BC authorities is "spot on." You cannot mistake a hair or a blood vessel for anything else; and so zapping them is relatively safe. However, a therapist(let's say physicians) cannot identify potentially lethal lesi

I always do a consultation to all my clients/patients. I have learned from being a surgical dental assistant that indeed during a consultation people get bombarded with information, nerves can be a little edgy and they forget what they were told.

What a minefield of statements! You cannot sensibly castigate "all therapists" because you have not seen "all therapists." There is no, "They ALL ..." What I will reluctantly corroborate is the lack of understanding,

The therapists themselves do not want to answer these questions either. They express it to be like a harassment. They want you to pay them and go home and deal with all the surprise manifestations that occur on our own. They don’t want phone calls

First of all. Omg i feel so bad for you that your skin looks like that. I know first hand how you feel. You have to go in public with marks. Try using coconut oil and soothe the skin and it should look better in 6 weeks. I really hope you get perms m
