I frequently do full, first clearance on ladies like this ASAP. They need relief and even though it looks dreadfully swollen and red afterwards, with the help of a little tea tree oil and the purest aloe Vera gel, cold from the refrigerator, that will bring calmness to the skin. If clients do not want this kind of reaction, then it can be done in 30 minutes increments once a week until a clearance is reached. It will take a longer time and more effort and money is needed, but that is another plan / strategy. Most people opt to get the hair off as fast as possible.
I haven't seen this client since February, so I assume she is stable and is not worrying about hair on her face any more. I will contact her and ask her to take a picture for me as she approaches her 2 year hair anniversary.
