Hi i have been having electrolysis for approx. 9 months on my face. I have developed some side effects on my cheeks and face where i am being treated. The best way to describe this would be it looks as though i have acne. I did not suffer with acne prior to treatment therefore it would be helpful to obtain advice about how to minimise the appearance of these spots on my face. I have attached some photos to help show what i am trying to explain

Were your hair structures fine,medium, coarse, very coarse? If your hairs were fine, the bumps would not occur. How long ago was last treatment? what is your aftercare?

Did you take a before pictures?

I would say my hair was medium to course. I've attached one before picture although it's not very clear. I previously would bleach the hairs which is why they may not show up well in the picture. In terms of after-care, I use lots of aloe vera gel and use dermalogica daily microfolant to try and help with the spots. My last treatment was approx. 3 weeks ago.

Those vesicles in photo #2 (right cheek) are lesions I have never seen post-electrology ... in 40 years. The other photos are nominal.

That is why I asked how temporary. It's likely the OP doesnt know however. I have seen lesions like this but they were not from electrology.

The very first time I did laser, it was with a student who barely spoke a word of english. I think she dropped out.She did a lousy job and I ended up with red markes ( somewhat like acne) similar to this, but on my left cheek were two marks that preented very similarly to this. Over a year later they were still there though not as inflamed. A single very grey hair (the only ones on that cheek at the time) was growing out of each of them. I removed the greys with blend, actually way over treated them. I had always assumed they were moles.

The thing is, moles dont go away and these did after being treated with electrolysis.They still held on for a few months as they faded, but once the hair was gone they diminished.

I never found out what the physiology behind these abnomalities was, but they seemed to diminish after the follicle was killed. They presented, almost exactly like these have. Today 3 years later, there is zero trace of them. Could have been partially ingrown? I'm not sure, but I would wit and see if they fade or mostly go away over the next 2-3 months. I think they might.

I'm looking for pictures of this, but I think they may have been deleted when I reset a tablet a few months ago. I dont remember if I ever transferred the pictures to PC.

I was treated with laser approx 2 and a half years ago which was ineffective and actually induced more hair on my face than i had previously. The marks on my face have flared up a few days after i started having electrolysis treatment on those particular area which was about2 months ago and have not faded. I guess i am just worried that if i continue to have treatment on the area it may lead to permanent pigmentation/scarring.

Those vesicles we are talking about "flared up a few days after electrolysis ... and [lasted] two months."

It could be that inflammation fired-up a virus that you might have had in the past, i.e., herpes. I do not think your electrologist either caused this or that this was a direct result of electrolysis. I would have these lesions checked by a dermatologist.

Again, these vesicles ... that appeared days after treatment ... were not a direct result from treatment. No such mark ever forms post-electrolysis; at least not in my experience.

I had electrolysis done to most of my face, neck and underarms.

Sadly, I am now experiencing redness and some tightness on my face when I smile.

I do NOT look ugly, but I need to find a way to get Rid Of The Redness and go back to my Original White Skin Color.

I am willing to do just about anything to fix this problem.

Does anybody know if any kind of Laser Machines can Help Correct this problem?

Currently, I am seeing a Dermatologist and they gave me some kind of pill to take for five days and some special liquid to put on my face for 10 minutes at a time to let the liquid sit there and doing this three times per day which is a hell of a job.

In any case, I am willing to seek out any good advice and tips from anybody who knows about what I am going through and Yes, I can send you pictures if you want to see what my face looks like.

My email address is: private_executive@yahoo.com.

Thank you.

Sincerely yours,

My concern is the healing process. I can't take off a week at a time to let my skin heal. Is there a way to cover up the red spots while my skin is clearing up?
