I had some thermolysis work done on my face and body. I went to many consults and I wasted a lot of money on what turned out to be expensive plucking. The consult with my last electrologist was excruciatingly painful, but after my experiences I wanted something effective which they promised to offer.
For the face, I had fine but a little dark and long around my eye/brow area, and asked for those to be removed. Scabs formed, which went away after a week. Nothing seemed wrong until about a month after, when I discovered what seemed like skin depressions where the electrologist had worked. It really took me by surprise because I guess I trusted the electrologist and I didn't really obsess about how the area looked beyond standard care including sun protection. A photo of the eye area is attached.
I'm really sad because I spend hundreds of dollars for anti-aging products and I try to take care of my skin, only to have this kind of scarring. I'm thinking now of alternating gentle retinA products specified for the eye area with polysporin.
As for the body, the scabs lasted much longer, around 2-3 weeks. Some hyper-pigmentation appeared, but what took me by surprise is that again, after about 1.5 months, I got a strange acne-like attack, but the spots seemed to be coming deep within the skin. I'm wondering if it's in-growns? The body hair was also villus-like but dark.
