Hi All! I had previously written in an electrolysis diary here. You can go to that link if you want to read the background. I decided to start a new thread now that I have actual data to show people. I remember when I first started looking into electrolysis, I found it extremely hard to find any hard numbers about how long the process would take. So, I made sure to keep extremely detailed logs and also took pictures along the way so that I could create graphs and have a visual log of the process.

Areas Treated
Face - Less than 15 hairs. Cleaned up hairline and chin line. Stray hairs only.
Chest - About 40 hairs. Nipple area only.
Knees - About 100 hairs. About 40 hairs per knee plus a handful of stray hairs on legs.

I've currently logged around 46 hours across all electrologists. 43 hours between Johanne and Joanie.

As you can see from the above chart and graph, the initial clearance phase took over 2 hours per week on average. Once the initial clearance was complete, the weekly average dropped to about 1 hour and slowly declined after that. Currently my weekly average is around 10 minutes. In order to calculate the weekly average, I'm averaging the time spent across the last 3 treatments. I'm averaging across 3 treatments so that the data is more stable.

Hopefully this helps someone.
