Iíve seen Selectif Pro Training Video, and the hairs seem to be tweezed for me on the video. What do you think?

Hi Dee.oz, could you possibly tell me which electrologists you were using in Ireland? I'm located in limerick but before I start the process I'd like to get some recommendations!
Thanks.

Oh damn that is kinda too far. Anyone based in Limerick that anybody could recommend? And the average price as well I guess?
Thanks guys!

This may have already been posted but thought this was interesting? do you think it made her hair growth worse or was it just her hormones? I'd figure it wouldn't do a thing to her hair? I'd never even heard of this ultrasonic hair device before. Im a little behind the times lol.

oh just re-read it and i see she had laser before the ultrasound. Alot of $ down the drain for this girl

Just a WILD guess: maybe their product did not work and they are out of business?

Hi All, Time for an update. No black/dark hairs in months and months. Now no long hairs(like there used be either).

Occasionally i get hairs which are a little bit longer than the rest, but still nowhere near the length they used be.

Also I would like to add I now wear my hair up occasionally (just over the last 2/3 months).
I still have downy hair but noting like it was.

Over the last 12 years i have tried so many electrologists, and not one but Ghitta (my current electrolygist) has made any improvements for me. This woman is amazing, not only in her skill but also her attitude. she never plucks hair. she may zap it 3\4 times before removing if it is a stubborn one. My hairs are now only blonde, so it may be difficult for her at times but she never says/complains. Her perseverance and attitiude is as good as her skilllevel, which is A++++. I wish this lady could train up all the previous electrolygists i went to, over the years or even start her own training school so she could teach others how to do it properly.

I'm not sure if i was unlucky having to go through so many electrolygists before i found a good one, i dont know. However my experience is that only Ghitta/of approx 10 made any improvements for me. One lady in particular left me with some minor scarring on my chin.

if i had to try and make a recommendation to anyone, i would suggest trying a few electrolygists;
(1)seeing if they have the apilus machine (kinder on skin)
(2)and if they zap once and pluck (or go zap and zap until the hair loosens up itself) - only a trial will tell you this..
(3)Also patience i think is very important. if your electrolygist finds it too difficult to chase the blonde hairs
(4)/also i think its very important that the electrolygist asks which areas bother you etc.

I am extremely grateful that all is good now. I actually had an appointment tonight and it must have been between 10-12weeks since my last one.

Hairmeout - I was using electrolygists in Sligo & Athlone and none of them were any good. The lady on this website who recommended Ghitta (my current electrolygist) to me is called Christine O'Connell. She said in one of her private messages that there was a great electrolygist in Galway (for when i was visiting Ireland). I never got the name off her, so not sure if its the name listed above. I would recommend contacting Christine (if she still on this website) and finding the name. I know it may be a long journey from Limerick to Galway but if you could book in long sessions with her it may be worth it.

Also CareBearHair - not sure if it was me you were referring to about getting laser, but i never got laser on my face, bikini & underarms - yes (but never on face). Overall the applisonix did not work much for me however it did work on some of the really dark coarse bristle like hairs on my upper lip (no where near to the level it promised) but it did work somewhat on the outer areas above my lip i.e. outer right and left above lips (did no improvement on middle area above lip). For the rest of my face, did nothing.

Hope this gives you all a summary of where I am up to... will probably update in another 6-9months but if you don't hear from me, that means things are getting better & better (until menopause hits & then ill probably be back on every week lol!!)

Also Ghitta is based in Coburg, Melbourne if anyone was looking for an electrolygist in melbourne.

I am thrilled to read your update Dee, well done. Yes,Ghitta is a great electrologist and I am really pleased that you now know that,electrolysis,in skilled hands gives amazing results. I began my career in the west of Ireland and am happy to confidently recommend the following practitioners all of whom I have worked with or had treatments from, The Catherine Hayes clinic, Galway, Anne Dunne,Tralee, and the soon to commence Eden Electrolysis Clinic, Co Limerick.
