An average electrologist removes 5-10 hairs per minute. Skill is important. If they know what they're doing, this machine is cheap, but should be ok. Make sure they're not plucking.

Hello again!

I had my first electrolysis session on Monday, here are the results.

I also added a photo of my leg hair aftr they've grown- are you still certain it's best to have electrolysis and not laser?

I ask this question because I could only do electrolysis once a month for half an hour because the practicioner's timetable is so full!

Thank you!!!

Yes, the hair is pretty sparse and fine.

Wow, is that bruising from the electrolysis? I was thinking of having electrolysis done on my ears, but not if it causes unsightly marks and bruises like that.

How long did the red marks last by the way?

There should be no bruising from electrolysis. I assumed it was something else.

Unfortunately I got the big bruise from electrolysis. Here's the explanation I was given: near the knee (it's done on my upper leg, dorsum, near the knee) there are many little cappillaries and one or two of them were hit my the needle.

Is that sensible explanation or not?

And should electrolysis sessions on one area be spaced at least 3 weeks? Is it useless to go further if I can only have electrolysis done once every two months?

And is there a good healing cream you could recommend? I use only aroe vera gel.

Ayman01: it's 4 days after my first session and I have red dots still, it takes time to heal.

It might be what happened but it doesn't sound right to me.... at all... but what do I know. I hope some of the electrologists will speak up about this.

You can go once every 2 months instead if you can get cleared of all hair each time you go.

While this bruise is particularly nasty and unfortunate, it can happen occasionally, and will clear up, the rest looks like an average reaction from using non insulated probes. Give her another chance, now that she is aware of your potential to bruise, she will likely work a little more slowly and carefully next time.

Hi Christine,

I have a question - are the bruises caused by the probe not being inserted in the follicle? Meaning, if the probe was accurately inserted, there is no chance of this happening?

I apologize for posting in this thread. I got a PM from someone regarding the difference between angiogenesis and petechiae, and forgot to respond. (It’s about bruising.)

The normal angiogenesis “red dot” will have a very sharp border that defines exactly where the follicle used to be. (This is normal, unavoidable, good, and visible on folks with thin white skin.) The dot from petechiae will be larger and have an irregular (diffused/spread out) border … almost like a star nebula. In the case of localized petechiae, perhaps the person was taking aspirin or other blood thinner, or such an event is special to their case. Also, if not on every follicle, this could be a micro-hemorrhage caused by inserting outside the follicle wall into a tiny blood vessel. In this case, blood leaks out into the surrounding tissue.

The bruise in the photo? I have never seen such a bruise caused by an electrolysis needle. This could be a once-in-a-lifetime event. Sometimes bruising takes place when local is administered, but not this large of a bruise (usually about a quarter of the size of a penny at most). Bruises always go away.
