May i take up this topic again?
I feel very unsure how to deal such issues.
When is it ethically acceptable to treat children with electrolysis?
Electrolysis hurts. Especially on the upper lip - a lot. Every client, not only children, needs a strong committment to stand that pain and have "that damned hair" removed. And that on children?
My spontaneous feeling: clearly not if the motivation/situation is clearly cosmetically motivated. But what if there is medical background like severe hypertrichosis, especially in the face?
What to do when the time comes that its really a problem for her? Every day I am waiting for her to tell me that someone at school has noticed and teased her.
And THAT motivation - projection of the feelings of the parents onto the children, should necessarily be a contraindication. The children have not only to decide freely but urgently want to get rid of their hair. Otherwise traumatisation is unavoidable - unfortunately, traumatisations may become visible years, even decades, after the traumatic experience.
