Hairtellers often do fairly well referring others to either laser or electrolysis practitioners. … But, here’s a warning.
Sometimes the referral is based on having known a practitioner for a long time, or having a close friendship. Sometimes the recommendation is based on what the person says about himself or herself, directly or indirectly. Almost none of us zapperettes, here on this site, have actually been TREATED by the people we recommend. Think about that for a minute!
Still, these recommendations are valuable. However, don’t rely too much on any recommendation or, especially, a “testimonial” you might read on a practitioner’s website, or on Hairtell. Lots of testimonials are just plain FAKE! What will work for one patient might not be appropriate for you. Indeed, you are going to have to test and evaluate the practitioner yourself. Take time in your selection.
ALWAYS, over the years, the kids that get themselves into the biggest trouble are the TG patients! Remember: YOU are NOT a second-class citizen and therefore should never be treated “less than!” You should always expect the highest standards in all the procedures you will be requesting. My God, could I tell you stories about my beautiful TG clients … and family members too! (Anybody ever heard of Dr. Brown, Los Angeles?)
My earlier statement here was about being “desperate,” and in your case not wanting exposure. Believe me, I’m “in your camp” and support you 100% … just PLEASE take this slowly and have due diligence before committing large sums of time and money to something that might not work, or even be deleterious to your situation.
I used to recommend others because I assumed all offices were “spotless” and up-to date, and that, if they were in business for decades, were doing superior work. I have learned that this is not necessarily the case. At the moment, I’m only comfortable recommending TWO colleagues. Yep, that’s it!
Don’t let “small town” mentality get you down or think poorly of yourself. You have as much RIGHT to be YOU as any of us. I’m proud of you right now … and, you should be too. At some point you will realize this and then wonder why you worried about what other “idiots” might be thinking. Seriously, they don’t count! (Or as my Italian/New Yorker father would say, “Screw ‘em Michael!”)
