Hi, I have tested at least 4 electrologists in France, and the most widespread theory they give when they explain you electrolysis for the first time is that they have to zap EACH hair a number of times (up to ten times and more, I heard) in order to "exhaust" and weaken the hair that will become thiner and thiner until he disappear. But apparently it is not all what the experts say here, that is a hair can not regrow if it's properly traited.
So I have several theories on why they spread this theory:
- the lack of knowledge on electrolysis (that is the most disturbing reason) and on the last progress of this method
- it's an old theory that electrologists once believed and has since been scientifically denied (a bit redondant with the previous one)
- They are scared to make scars and purposly undertreat the hair
- it arranges them to advertise a large number of "zapping" needed to kill a hair, so if the hair is missed, they can start again without the client feels aggrieved
- it allows them to prolonge the treatment and thus to keep their client longer and to have more income
These are the main theories I could think of. Can they be realistic?
The difference between the theory I read here and what I experienced in real life is hard to understand, like parallelle universes, but maybe it's specifical to France.
