I dont think your expectations have been set correctly.

It is impossible for any electrologist to estimate on hair that has been tweezed repeatedly , most especially in the 3 months prior to electrolysis. there is no possible way we can know how much hair you have tweezed out. Given that you admit to doing so for well over a decade prior it is likely to be a CONSIDERABLE amount of hair, and that's justthe stuff you CANT see. There is going to be an 8-12 week minimum eriod if you tweeze a hair before that hair will regrow.

Whatever time you spent in the first 3 months doing hair removal , assuming you were attaining full clearances by the end of that period, will be your starting point at making any estimates.If you didnt obtain full clearance in that first 3 months the hair growth would carry over into the next 3 month period. It's going to be ever diminishing amounts for every 3 month period after that for a minimum of 12-18 months for the face.

I've seen serious plucking cases go well in excess off 130 hours in the first 10 months of treatment. 10 hours? Not a snowballs chance in hell. And YES some hairs, will regrow and be removed more than once during that process. There is not an electrologist on the planet that can quote you a 100% kill rate. This is how the process works.

Your electrologist is NOT responsible for your previous plucking, nor are they responsible for your hair growth.

These hairs sound like they are severely distorted hair follicles from repeated tweezing.

Thermolysis is almost, but not quite, useless against such hairs because you cannot tell where the follicle parts you need to destroy are, and may not be able to acess them even if you do. The solution is sometimes to use blend on these distorted follicles because the liquid lye accesses all parts of the follicle , whereas the heat from thermolysis we cant quite get there.
It's likely however your electrologist is proceeding in thermolysis to get rid of the bulk of hair that is NOT severely distorted, and will clean up these hairs at the end with blend, which might be a little less efficient for the large volume of hair. If distorted hairs are returning, its because they arent dead. They arent dead because they are severely distorted from plucking.Again this is not an unusual scenario.They can be killed.
