Can anyone vouch for Sarah Baker in Birmingham, AL on Highland Ave? Anyway I fill in more about her on my next to last paragraph.

Ok, I made the mistake of going to one of the electrologists at A&A Electrolysis in Hoover, AL after she had spent much of the time she was treating me on her cell phone (!). Yeah, stupid stupid stupid on my part.

I also knew that I was forgetting something but couldn't quite put my finger on it. Then I talked to my mother (who'd had her chin treated by the other lady at A&A) and it came out that the other lady always had her ice the area right afterwards to "...shrink your pores!" (my mom's words).

The one who treated me forgot to remind me to ice afterwards in both instances!

I don't know about you, but I will never use her again. Her staying on the phone while treating me should have scared me off the first time.

Who I am now looking at is Sarah Baker over on Highland Ave. here in Birmingham (Alabama). Her receptionist told me her brand of electrolysis machine is an Instatron but I forgot to ask her which model, what type/brand of probes she uses, and what brand/model of laser she uses.
I'm still only working on my upper lip*, for which the laser price is 50 dollars per treatment, and the electro is a straight 25 dollars for 15 minutes, 40 for 30 mins, 50 for 45, and 60 for an hour.

*- I've posted about this before. Six years ago I had a very dysphoric day where I just started carefully tweezing my upper and lower lip and part of my chin area, leaving the upper lip looking remarkably patchy in re-growth, otherwise I wouldn't even be starting professional removal until I had a much larger nest egg...

Laser is not a good option for sparse hairs, especially on a woman's face.

Ty LAgirl. I can't get any local electro person on the phone right now so I'm just gonna have to go down in person and sign up for an appointment (I'm currently a pre-everything 39 yo mtf- diff hormonal and skin condition from a cis- or long-term postie, but I'll be getting electro then.

If you have dense coarse dark hair on any area, you can get rid of a bulk faster with laser first and then finish with electrolysis. For any hair that's sparse or fine or both, you need electrolysis from the start.

I Want Your Business And I Am Willing To Put My Money Where My Mouth And Make A Commitment That Will Save You Hundreds Of Dollars In Hair Removal.

As a former electrolysis client I realized that my commitment to hair removal required a commitment of considerable resources. It is said that for a trans-woman hair removal will represent your single greatest financial commitment. I am determined to help you to control and reduce this financial burden.

Because of my lower operating expenses and low overhead, I can save you $10 to $15 dollars per hour. This translates to as much as $500 - $750 per year if you, like most clients, receive 2 hours of treatment per week. If you are a client of an operator with high overhead and pay $95 to $100 per hour then you will save up to $1500 per year. Money that you can put to good function elsewhere.

I offer the same level of safety, skill and service as well as a friendly, clean environment. And I care about your success which means doing what I can to help you stretch your dollars.

This is a SPECIAL OFFER and you must refer to Hair Tell to claim these savings. Don't miss out on this SPECIAL OFFER.

Please visit my website: www.gia-works.com or give me a call at 818-967-8990 for more information or text to make an appointment.
