You know, I really so appreciate “you guys!” I enjoy the interaction so much you have no idea. It keeps my mind off my own scary problems.
I should have identified that area … but it’s a “bikini” area! Her right side.
Yep the “red dots” are erythema (that means “red” in “doctor talk”) that are caused when tissue is injured and blood (capillary) rushes into the immediate area. Were it not for the local anesthetic … that causes whitening of the skin … the whole area would be red. And yes, those bruises are the anesthetic sites.
The client is an “almost finished with it all” TG client. The face came out GREAT and is completely done! (She’s “blond/blue” and this is the BEST skin-type for electrolysis with no post-treatment difficulties.)
I will be starting the “pre-op” stuff once I get specific instructions from her surgeon. The doctors all want something a bit different (you need to talk to the surgeon first). And, it depends on what the client wants too, as this “look” should fit the person herself. You know LOTS of different “styles” to choose from.
Also interesting (well, maybe) is that this depicts a “disagreement” I had with the client. (I adore this person, by the way!). She initially wanted a very “high” bikini line. I said, “No, let’s be conservative; you can always remove more hairs but you can’t put them back.” So I cleared-off the area I thought reasonable. After she healed up, she shaved the area to where she wanted, and lived with it for about 6 months.
She then decided that the “high cut” was, indeed, to radial and let the hairs grow back (You can clearly see the two areas; one looks clipped/shaven). She did super well from the first clearance and what you see is the second clearance. And yes, I need to do the hair at the “top” too. (Maybe a slight diamond shape? … I’m not sure just yet.)
The first clearance took 2 hours and the second clearance took 50 minutes; WAY better than I had expected. I’m surprised that the “line” stayed so intact. I will show the area next week when she comes back.
I wonder if I should show the “pre-op” stuff? Maybe too graphic? I will ask Dee Dee. This might not be the right place for this? Probably not. (There I go again with my long-winded drivel!)
