Hello!

Are there any electrologists who are willing to perform marathon sessions in the US? I live in the US but I have been unable to find anyone willing to schedule appointments for more than an hour. I would love to travel to you for at least one full clearance and have my local electrologist remove the regrowth.

I am a female with a lot of fine hairs on my face and neck and based on my current electrologist's speed, it seems like I would need 10 - 15 hours done.

I live in the MidWest and don't mind flying to your practice since I don't have a car.

Thank you!

I only do marathon sessions, and have two big ones coming up.

With what you are describing, you are not a good candidate for marathon sessions. Fine facial hair, especially, is not the best area for multiple hours. The best is to proceed just as you are doing.

Besides, only 10 - 15 hours is not much time. (My marathoners are in the 100+ hour range.)

Indeed, I know you want to "get this over ASAP." However, with facial hair you will need many treatments over the next 12 - 18 months or so. You cannot rush facial treatments; at least in my experience.

I do marathon sessions and like doing it but I am in Montreal Canada, sorry.
Also if the hair is very dense it is not advisable to make full clearance in 1-2 sessions due to possibility of overtreatment.

Thank you so much for your quick replies! I really appreciate it. The progress is really frustrating but I do understand your concerns about the skin quality.

How many hours would you generally advice?

The time is irrelevant.
The electrologist which will perform the treatment must make consultation with you.He/she will consider many parameters before giving you approximate time.
Some of the variables are:hair size, hair density,area to be treated,type of skin and skin reaction to the treatment.The skin reaction could be different for different modality used so you should have tested your skin reaction using Flash or Blend.If the Blend makes less skin reaction than the treatment speed will be much slower than Flash. Also the progress will depends of the electrologist work speed.

Agree with what Dimi has said.

Exception: blend is often used in 1-second, or less, intervals. This was a common way Hinkel instructed for fine facial hairs; although the process is not generally known because, to my knowledge, no textbooks cover this aspect.
