Any updates from the members who posted here?
I am in the same boat. I started electrolysis in march of this year...around my 5/6 appointment, I started noticing pits around my upper lip area...I was freaking out. I went into this expecting to be hair free, no one told me about wrinkling, heck wrinkling wasn,t even mentioned as a side-effect! I had a talk with my electrologist regarding it, she basically told me it looks more like hyperpigmentation...I really don't know to be honest. I am a little mixed up, I am not even sure if this treatment is working on my hair. Sometimes I feel it is, othertimes I don't think it is working. I have a few coarse hair on my upper lip since I began this treatment in march, and I still have them!! Shouldn't they been gone by now?
I am so confused as to proceed with the treatment or not.
My electrologist is using an apilus pro, blend treatment. The hair comes out fine like butter. After treatment I only experience the regular swollen/red area which I have read about. It usually lasts about an hour or a few hours. The only time I felt the area was not getting any better was after my 5th treatment when the swelling didn't go away until the next day; and this was the same week I noticed the pitting/wrinkles.
How many treatments are recommended for the upper lip? Chin area? When do people start to notice a difference? I would really appreciate some feedback from the members and the experienced electrologists here.
