I swear it does get easier! I didn’t believe it first but it’s true!

It’s been 28 days since my last electrology appointment and there is so much hair now. It’s been a sudden hair explosion since I last posted, all excited. I go in tomorrow thank goodness. I have about 100 dark course hairs on my chin and upper lip and then a few thinner dark ones on just my upper lip. I cannot wait for the hair tap to start turning off 😭

Yes I feel like this for my daughter! Hair, hair everywhere. Its quite depressing how fast and furious those suckers can grow. I think once you have had a clearance or close to a clearance that suddenly any new hairs that pop up seem to look even darker and more obvious on their own rather than surrounded by "neighbours".

All the best for your treatments. We will win in the end!!!

Session #13 (6.5 hours total) was almost a week ago. I had one day of swelling following treatment and since have been trying to stay on top of any hair sheaths. My skin is still a bit red in addition to my PIH. No coarse hair growth but plenty of the dark thin ones. Looks like I will be staying on a every 3-4 week treatment schedule for now. This feels never ending.

6.5 hours sounds like you are in the beginning stages?????? I haven't followed your case. I do hope you are getting the area cleared every time you have a session?

I stopped tweezing last day of February and started treatment the first week of March. My electrolysist says my case isn’t severe even though it feels that way to me. I am cleared minus the thin hairs in the middle of my lip. I have never tweezed those and my provider will only take a couple per session because she says the area is too sensitive.

I had session #14 11 days ago and am now starting to see a hint of growth. It’s been a nice almost two weeks of being hair free. My electrolysis told me to call if I wanted to have a session in between our monthly sessions, and I’m torn. If I did every two weeks I possibly wouldn’t need to do any maintenance (shaving) but I have been enjoying letting my skin heal in the time between sessions. I have 17 days until my next appointment which will mean a lot of growth between now and then.

It’s been 20 days since my last appointment and I only have FOUR of the very dark coarse beardlike hairs that have regrown. There is still plenty of dark growth all over but I’m excited about the dwindling monsters.

Had a normal 30 minute session at the end of September but almost immediately had chin growth. My next scheduled session is a week away and I have more chin hair than I can remember since my first couple weeks. I’m not tweezing but the urge to tweeze out all of these suckers is so strong. I hate it. I can’t cover it up. I have to trim it multiple times per day. Please let this be my chin’s last hurrah before the hair gives up.
