Thank you Barbara. I started my electrolysis in the summer of 2010 (forehead), but I did not really have coarse hair, they were just fine and small. She made me stay for 3 hours for electrolysis and all my forehead, eyes and chicks got swollen. In the following three days, I ended up with an upside down triangle face. I was lucky enough not loose my vision. Anyway,in the near future I will post my pictures for you guys to see what I went through. But my last experience with electrolysis exceeded my expectation ( APILUS MACHINE), she was great, but unfortunately she is not living in the USA. So it is very important for me as a tight budget student to find someone in Fairfax who uses this machine and really does his/her job. Thank you again for the information, I will give them a call.
