Long way to go is a relative term. The hardest part is almost behind you. Sessions spread out soon. When regular appointments are maintained over 9-18 months, whether they need to be once a week in the beginning to once every 4-6 weeks in the later months, then a year and a half of electrolysis is not a long time as compared to a lifetime of temporarily removing the hair with razors, tweezers, thread, wax and chemical creams. Oh, a permanent solution gives you some time back because you are not chasing hair everyday.

You are doing this correctly and I feel sure that your electrologist is doing this correctly as well.

Had session #15 today, she zapped about 50 hairs on my chin, half of which were dark and/or coarse. I spent around 15 minutes on the table. Trying to stay above the waves of hair that are appearing. There plenty of obvious dark coarse ones, but also a field of brown ones that are often hard for her to see. Had a couple of huge and deeply-rooted suckers today that she had to zap twice. Though they slid out with no plucked-feeling, it still felt like she was pulling a massive tree out of the ground. Yuck!

Thanks Dee and James for your encouragement, I really need it. Even though I know my progress is going well and soon there will be light at the end of the tunnel, I still have been feeling down about it all. I just dread waking up two or three days later to a chin full of hair again.

Your long time tweezing obsession makes the beginning months much harder as all the hair comes back in dribs and drabs. Don't ever back off or give up! Stress to all your women friends and women in your family not to TWEEZE the hair on their chinny chin chins. Tweezing creates a terrible mess, but a good electrologist will bring you some well deserved freedom.

Many times clients who have completed their treatment have told me that they had suffered nightmares. They dreamed that their hair back to torment them. This shows that what we dream never becomes reality because as the slogan says AEA: There are three permanent things, death, taxes and Electrolysis. wink

Treatment #16
10 minutes on my chin clearing mostly brown hairs and just a few coarse black ones. Quick and easy, but it's getting harder for her to see them. They are becoming more and more vellus-like, but they are still brown and visible against my light skin tone.

You are getting closer. It is not uncommon to log about 20-25 visits over a year or so to reach the goal. Vision equipment is very important when all you have left is vellus hairs. Client frustration peaks when the electrologist can't see the hairs that bother the client most.

You will soon reach the six month mark, and this is when all the effort begins to pay off. You are already finding that the majority of your hair is now very fine, and soon there will be fewer and fewer to deal with.

I had treatment #17 last week & treatment #18 today which completes my 4th month in this venture. Each session was 15 minutes, in which she zapped about 50-60 hairs on my chin.

She commented that while most of the hairs are appearing finer and lighter in color than earlier, hidden underneath the skin are very thick dark roots. I am happy if they are becoming less noticeable in the couple days each week I must go without trimming them down. I have to remind myself that it is good that so many keep popping out, then she has a chance to zap them! But it is so mind-boggling to me just how many darn hairs there are in these two little spots on my chin.

Now you understand what we mean when we say, "If you think you have 3 hairs, you probably have 30."

And it is possible that in future new hairs are developed in the area of your chin. You should not think that in the unlikely event that this happens your electrologist did a bad job or that electrolysis was not successful for you. A powerful hormonal burden accumulated in that area is only responsible.
