Is there anyone on here that has not required touch ups after going to Electrologist ctrolysis for an area? I’m in my early 30s. I started my face and now I’m worried I’ll be doing this for life. Also has anyone noticed the hair becomes more coarse as you start Electrolysis. I did one side of my face with Electrolysis and not the other abd the side I did appears to be darker hairs emerging. I didn’t feel plucking when she did it but I sure notice now it’s darker on that side.

Electrolysis, (in my case) has indeed been ongoing and I'm thankful it exists.
Look at it as regular maintenance such as hair cuts and manicures, etc.

Take a deep breath: it may get worse with hormonal changes.
I hope you've sought medical treatment such as dermatology and/or
endocrinology.

Hmm. If I may ask do you have any hormone issues? I had mine checked and it’s ok. Well shoot. I don’t want to have to do this for life. I had laserinduced growth.

I really wonder about this, too. I had my hormones checked and nothing is wrong. Supposed that they don't change as I age, why would there be a need for touch ups? Will this nightmare of having unwanted hair never end?

Your hirsutism might be 'idiopathic,' meaning there's no known reason.

Do any methods work better to keep it permanently gone?

when performed correctly, all electrolysis modes provide the same efficacy. No new hair growth in the treated follicle is the same no matter how you got there.

I can understand that electrolysis does work but there are so many mixed messages that I'm hearing

Like it would take between 12 - 18 months to get rid of the hair but I hear more often than not that people have been seeing their electrolysis for years and years and are having to get touch ups every year

It feels pretty hopeless because to me that does not sound like permnament hair removal

Please don't see this post as me having a go at the electrolysis community - it's just a lot of mixed messages and I'm trying to see clear which one is the correct one

Do the people who need touch ups most likely have hormone issues? So if you don't have these issues you won't have to worry about getting touch ups once you complete your course of treatments?

Sorry about the rant

I had electrolysis on the chin area for about 9 months (with good results) I stopped due to financial reasons, I got a DIY kit (One Touch) I was lucky that the hairs were easy to see and I was able to treat meself. After over a year of DIY-ing I'm still getting the odd hair.
