Okay! Thanks for another great picture.

This is as to be expected. Red dots or scabbing usually appears 24-48 hours later and you are right on target. You will be perfectly fine and not to belabor the point, this will heal just fine.

Please return with more pictures so others that are lurking here can follow your healing and progress.

Thanks gorilla!

I dont recommend ever using ice. I actually go out of my way to tell my clients not to use ice at all. We are using the heat to do the damage why cool the heat when it can continue to work? I had also read a few articles about clients winding up with frost bite from it and nixed it all the way.

I give my clients 100% all natural aloe and they can use it as often as they like. At leas 2 x a day for 3 days.

If the hairs are breaking or pulling tweezing I would call that the incorrect setting and the hairs should as you said about previous treatments "slide out" that is a sure indication that the insertion was done correctly and the setting was at the right timing pluses and or heat index.

The insertion in the area is VERY sensitive but should not be unbearable. I would make sure the electrologist is using proper vision sometimes painful insertion and puling hairs can be an indication he or she can't see making insertion a bit off thus painful. The tissue should never perice or dimple it should be a smooth entrance into the follicle.

ALTHOUGH that does not mean that the treatment was not effective the work look good! let's wait and see what happens. Just a few things to think about!

GG,

How long did it take for a full clearance on your knuckles?

May I add that this is exactly the kind of work the larger diameter Kelly tips were developed for.

Hmm.. that's interesting.

After my hand and fingers treatment, they were on fiiiiiire. Josefa got me a bowl of ice cold water to immerse them in. Resulting in excellent results and dead follicles as is expected from her work.

I understand why one would think cooling would effect results but I don't see how it actually can. If the heat 'continued working' then there would be no need for the precision in insertion (depth, angles etc).

Aloe vera is nice, too, but I did some toes today and did nothing to them. She will do soap and water and all will be fine.

Hey everyone! I'm back with more photos if anyone cares about such a small area...
These were taken approximately week ago. I have shaved them recently so it doesn't make sense to take pictures of them now.
I do not think I will be returning to the electrologist I went to. I'm going with my gut. I have decided the amount of plucking I felt was not right, and looking at my knuckles now, some areas have darkened into a grey color from over-treatment.
