I have a question regarding epilation: There are really thin hairs at the top of my penis near the "head" (non on it but just below) and when I zap and pull them out there is no sheath and 90% of the time no bulb. I've seen that bulbs will come from the hairs with a deeper root. But the hairs where you only need to insert a little come out with no root or bulb and sometimes it's a pluck but without the pain (almost like a snap). If you tried to tweeze it out it wouldn't budge, but then after a couple zaps it wont glide out but it'll "snap' out.

Did I just burn the root/hair and thus not treat it accurately? Or is this common characters of thin hairs in this area?

I don't mind getting stabbed with the hypodermic needle more than once in a session. I know of an electrology office that offers Registered Nurses who inject lidocaine, so I may shell out the extra $$$ for that. I've tried topicals but they seem to only numb the epidermis of myself. I asked a pharmacist and pharmacy technician today, and they agreed that it only numbs the top. Also, I read someone say on this forum that their doctor said that EMLA only numbs the top. Then again, I've never applied it more than 1.5 hours before, so maybe I just haven't let it sit on my skin long enough? Years ago, I didn't feel any Blend on my navel when I used EMLA there, but maybe the navel is a less sensitive area? Or maybe my electrologist at the time was using a very low energy setting?
