I've been having treatment from 8 to 10 am once each week, and go in to work at the office before noon. Since I've switched from having maintenance on my upper lip every week to every other week, redness and swelling there are almost completely non-existent. Weekly maintenance of the same area wasn't allowing quite enough time for my skin to recover as well as I preferred.
Here's a picture of what it looked like two weeks ago, one day prior to treatment. These hairs are all new growth after having had approximately four months of weekly electrolysis.
