Hi, first of all I would like to clarify some points regarding the "method" of 3 clearances.
It would be very helpful for the customers to see before and after pictures in high definition of the before and the after of the 3 clearing process in an untouched area prior treatment of a minimum of 6 months.
Electrolysis, regardless the modalities of the technique ( thermolyses, multiplex,blend). DOES destroy permanently (that means forever!) the hair follicles ONLY in the hand of a good practitioner. The hair has to be killed the first time. (Not In 2 or 3 atempts.)
There is one electrologist on this forum who provide a very very good work. Her name is Josefa. It is not a surprise for everyone of this forum I guess
Why it is a very good professional ? The answers is very simple, she always provided pictures of decent quality of differents successful treatments of women and mans as well. From the start to the beginning with good explications of the immediate skin reaction. That's the first thing which is in my opinion very important. It allow customers to expect what they can obtain from HER works.
The second very important thing is that she's doesn't like to mess with the hair. When she treat a hair it is very unlikely to regrowth, believe me!
i have been treated for the past few years by differents electrologist with virtual good reputation on the internet. The quality of the work is not the same at all. ( Quality of work refer to the ability of the practitioner to kill the folicles in one time.) to judge the quality of the work of an electrologist, take a pictures before the treatment and 3 month after a clearing and jidge of you had ingrown hair or hair that are cute of at the top of them. If there Is a lot of them. You have to move because you want your hair killed the fist time not a never ending process for the SAME hair. Don't look at your skin for this 3 month. Don't be bothered by little redness or skin manifestation. I Will resolve and it is very unlikely to have permanent damage in the hand of most of the electrologist who post on the Internet and participate to forumlike this one.
Customers wants to see good photographies of complete treatment.
I always say that a good picture is much more intéressant than to much talking.
Electrologist can take close up shot in order to protect the identity of their customers. They can also sign a form of consent. In general this is not a problem to post close up pictures of someone because of you explain them that this can help others in making a choice for a treatment, this is a perfectly fine reason and people want to help. THERE IS NO EXCUSE for an electrologist to no provide precise pictures of their work during a complete treatment. Not after only 1 or 2 clearances. After the 3 clearance too!
People on this forum ask the same questions over and over again. It is boring and I understand the professional who are tired to answer the questions asked more than 25 times. Customers needs clear informations befire they choose to go for a treatment.
Keep in mind, a referal of an electrologist mean NOTHING. You want to see proof precisois tratment of work that is going to be done on your face or in your body.
So, pictures took at every stage during a treatment from before to 3 month after the 3 clearing is kind of a good exemple of what an electrologist can provide in term of permanent hair removal on an area.
Electrolysis works on every hair and every skin and every type of hair, from straight to curly ( anlagen and telogen as well!)
So customers: before starting a treatments ask the following questions: how is it going to take ? How many clearances to have 99% of the hair gone forever ? Can you profile me pictures of a former customers before, after the 1 clearing, after the second and more than 3 mo the after the 3 clearing.
Electrologist: please profide pictures of your work in a serious way. A very good electrologist name josefa did it since many years so I guess you can do it to. We wasn't to know what to expect.
I hope this post gonna be helpful for the custimers trying to find an electrologist and for the electrologists who can improve their way of working with more visibility of their results.
