Thanks Dolphinz, I'll look into the calamine lotion.
So, I decided that I would like to try out different electrologists than the one I am going to at the moment. Today, I went to another one in the area that I never knew existed before!
It was pretty neat. I had booked an hour appointment, but the traffic was horrible and I ended up being 15 minutes late, so we just did 30 minutes. First thing I noticed was the place was nice enough, but the machinery looked old. I don't know, but what do you guys think of the Sorisa DE-3000? Anyway, this lady is a lot slower than my old one, and she could only thin out my chin hairs in the 30 minutes.Immediately post-treatment:
I did not feel any pulling whatsoever (except maybe 1 hair that was resisting) during the session, and she talked to me about blend, thermolysis, etc. I told her I've been getting electrolysis done since January, and she was surprised because it seems like my hairs aren't at the same growth stages yet. The example she gave me was how some are short, while others are really long. She wants me to come regularly so she can get me on track. She says one of her clients (of 1.5 months) has already gotten on track, so she doesn't like that after 4 months, I'm not.
She also saw the hyperpigmentation, and made her adjustments accordingly. She told me she used only the minimum amount of energy required to zap my hairs and get them to slide out without resisting. She seemed like she knew what she was doing, albeit her speed was quite slow. She put on tea tree oil gel after my appt was over, but didn't provide any other aftercare tips.
After the session was over though, she recommended peels to me, and said they would definitely help with my hyperpigmentation. Do you think peels are good for me, you guys? Or should I wait until I'm hair-free?
