Hi all... I've been through these forums for a few days and finally decided I would post myself
I thank you in advance for any help you may be able to give me.
I am man of Indian decent (medium brown skin)and have black hair.
I am looking to have my hairline raised because I feel it is too low at the moment and doesn't compliment my face. I will be raising it about .5-1 inch. I have pretty specific questions because it is a serious undertaking for me.
Q1) What is the best method to use on my forehead (it is scalp hair so it is thick I assume)?
Q2) How many treatments/how often/how long will I have to undergo?
Q3) I plan on starting my first treatment on December 21st however I would like to temporarily raise my hairline until then... I have heard I should not wax/tweeze this hair so soon before electrolysis so I was looking for alternative methods. Shaving is not an option because it grows back stubbly and is *very* noticeable. Is a depilatory cream acceptable or should I just leave it as is until I get the procedure done?
Q3a) If I did use a depilatory cream how fast/course would it grow back?
Q4) I live out of the country at the moment and I won't be able to make constant visits to my electrologist... should I wait until next year when I move back or is there a way I can start treatment in December (will be home for 4 weeks) then come back 4 months later (permanently home then) and keep going constantly from there?
Q4a) If it is recommended I wait until I can make constant trips to start this process... would it be acceptable to wax/tweeze this hair until I start the treatment? How long before you start electrolysis do you need to stop waxing/tweezing?
I have wanted to raise my hairline for quite sometime now... shaving the area was the worst idea ever because it became very noticeable... I had to grow my hair out long and cover my face to
hide this for quite sometime until it grew back. Now that my hair is short I really don't have that option anymore so if I am going to take action I need to make sure it isn't blatantly obvious that I removed hair at my hairline.
Again, thanks in advance for all your help and god bless.
