Hi, my name is Marine and it's my first post on this forum. First of all, forgive me all the mistakes I might make in English as it's not my native language. I have a small problem with my electrolysis treatment and would love to hear your advice on it as I feel quite at a loss. Since September 2016 I have been making appointments with my electrologist to treat one 'devil' thick, coarse black hair that kept growing on my neck. So far, I have had 4 treatments. I must add here, that this one devil hair has been quite problematic since prior to my eletrolysis treatment, I used to tweeze this hair out for many years and thus created some hyperpigmentation and scarring, sometimes the hair even used to grow inside my skin, yuck. Back to the point though: my electrolysis lady used blend method on the hair, the hair responed to the treatment growing back slowly every 1 or 2 months. Now it' s a bit different, I noticed that the hair is quite deep under the skin, it appears to be an ingrown hair, when I strech the skin it appears that the small strand of hair is trapped under my skin. I don't want to tweeze it out knowing that it could result in more hyperpigmentation and I am desperate to heal my poor skin, but I also don't want to live with an ingrown hair on my neck for whole my life. What should I do? Are there any safe ways to extract it without using tweezers, fingers? Should I make a peel on this spot, or treat it with glycolic acid? Or just leave it alone and it will go on its own (if it's even possible). I'm in desperate need for your advice, this one hair is ruining my mood and I keep fixating on it frown Any output would be highly appreciated.

BTW, I should add that, I am sure that I have an ingrown hair, it's not a tombstone.


Thanks smile

Marine

I dont understand why you arent going back to the electrologist.Electrologists extract ingrown hairs every single day.It's not a difficult process, and when a good healthy shot of blend currents accompanies it that hair gets dead forever.

Hi, thanks for the suggestions. I used to have a similar problems after my 2nd electrolysis treatment and went to my electrologist with an ingrown hair, but she was unable to untrap it, she just ripped my skin, but didn't get the hair - that's why I don't to seek her help anymore because of the fear she will again leave my skin in a bad condition. It took one more week for me to be able to squeeze the ingrown on the surface on my own and then proceed with a 3rd appointment with her. She is treating my hair with the blend method, but the hair became ingrown again. Im starting to think that perhaps I should change my electrologist, the problem is there are only 3 in my city, unfortunately in my country electrolysis is not very popular, everything seems to be laser oriented.

Some electrologists are better at it than others. I know I spent the first few weeks I had my office open with no needles to take the hair out.So many times I regretted that, powerless as this client or that had some ingrown hair I couldnt remove. Well I corrected that I tell you! It made me realize just how often I was extracting these little buggers. Multiple time a day for certain.I know josepha is super good at this. I guess I just think its a skill every electrologist should have because they'll face it.

Sorry if this isnt YOUR electrologist. I suppose there are not others about?
