Josefa started this important thread. I moved it and made it a sticky because it must not go unnoticed. Many posters are confused about what is a normal skin reaction after electrolysis. Any electrologist can feel free to take pictures and post on this thread. I will be posting soon, as well.

Josefa has started with her work:

Inflammatory response & Primary lesions

EDEMA
ERYTHEMA


- No difficulties anticipated, because reaction resolves by itself.
- Keep area clean: mild anti-bacterial soap. May use mild antiseptic lotion.


Source: Treatment Strategy for Electrology.
Regrowth, Wound healing, Overtreatment

by Michael Bono.

The length and shape of the inflammatory response depends on:
- The sensitivity of each individualīs skin.
- The density of treated follicles in one session (in the form of isolated points if the density is minimal, and plate-uniform if the density is maximum).

When the follicular unit coincides with 2 or 3 hair fibers, a single crust is derived from the treatment of several of these follicles.

Hello,

I had electrolysis on my upper legs and buttocks three months ago. I got many 2-3mm scabs.. one of the reasons for sure was the daily 'sitting consequence' - scrubbing against the chair.

Now I have 2-3mm bruise-like dots, is this normal or too tardy healing? How to speed up the healing process?

Thank you.

Does your skin take a longer time than average to heal, or is this only the case with electrolysis treatment? Perhaps your healing time has changed, and was faster in the past? Many people, according to my Dr. are zinc deficient, and this is known to delay healing. Vitamin C is also beneficial.

Congratulations on such a wonderful addition to the forum. This will help users considerably, to distinguish between normal and abnormal reactions. Students of Electrology will also find this a wonderful resource. Bravo Josefa

Good point, Christine. I would like to see some pictures, udu. Would you be able to show us what the area looks like?

I occasionally get clients that have slow healing action. I actually fall Into that category when I get a bug bite. I still have pigmentation on my lower right leg from last June. It might as well be a big, brown tattoo. I know it will fade, but for me, it may take six months or more.

The red dots, different range of brown, or yellow (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation) appear after the release of the scabs.
Some areas of the body are likely to develop this type of side effects. Inside of the thighs and arms, buttocks, bikini line, pubic area, underarms, fingers and toes.

It may seem that when the scabs are gone, the healing process is complete, however, does not so. The injury first damages the subcutis, then rises to the reticular dermis, papillary dermis and finally the epidermis. More damage and a wider pattern of destruction occurs in the deeper tissues -the opposite of a natural wound. Thus, electrolysis produces a truly unique "upside-down wound".(Michael Bono)

The skin is a miraculous healing organ. We'll let it do its job.

Thank you Christine.
Dee is the promoter of this idea. Pictures "after" of all these cases will be exhibited at the end of this thread. Knowing the whole process will help reassure users of Electrolysis.

HYPOPIGMENTATION, SEBACEOUS PAPULES





This side effect is common in tanned skin, just after the summer. The white dots show the original color of the skin.
The rest of the skin will recover homogeneity when the tan is gone, or when the individual returns to submit to sunbathing. This should NEVER occur before the healing process is complete, otherwise the effect could be the opposite,ie, HYPERPIGMENTATION.
