If you clear each time does that mean the treatment time will be less? How many full clearances does it take to kill the area???

As long as you clear out all the hair in the treated area in less than 6 weeks, each time you should be on schedule to get finished less than 24 months. If you fully cleared everything in 3 weeks or less each time, you could finish sooner.

How many clearances do you need to do to notice a difference typically?

Six to eight clearances, over 6 to 8 months gives one the idea that electrolysis is working and will solve their problem.

How far apart is too far for sessions? Mine told me to come back every couple of months...every 6-8 weeks? Is this useless? Should I switch practitioners? Will I miss all the growth cycles??

Again, the answer is still yes, you would get finished on that schedule if you manage to clear out all the visible hairs in that rotation of 6 to 8 weeks.

Of course, you may be looking for someone other than me to answer that question, in which case... I wish you luck with that.

Notice that you will be finished of you choose the right electrologist. Sometimes people forget that this is not the Apilus that does the work. This is the practionner. A good electrolosgit can use Apilus, hinkel, Instantron, stereo, sorisa... with good succes in killing hair permanently.

Figuring out what time is good to let between clearance is something you definitely want to know. CHOOSING someone you does kill hair the first time is I think you understood REALY important.

You want to be finished in less than 24 month ? Don't forget that this will not be the case of the electrologist is treating the same hair in 2 or 3 appointments. It will tripe and doublée the cost of your treatment and you will be hair free in let's say 72 months.

People are free to "believe" an electrologist only because he is a "professional." But if it was the case and very random electrologist could provide a decent work, we wouldn't have read all those bad story of unhappy customers on hairtell.

Final word of the story, do a 4 inch square PATCH TEST on an untouched area of your body,(no waxing, no shaving for more than 5 months.) to test the ability of the practionner to properly kill hair. Note that you will have to wait 3 months to judge if there is a permanent reduction.

Permanent Hair Removal is a team effort between practitioner and client. Sometimes it also requires a team that includes a doctor and a nutritionist.

There are many variables that come in to play when it comes to what is possible with a hair removal project. Practitioner skill and chosen method is one thing, and client scheduling is very important as well. The amount of hair and hair growth cycles also make one job very different from another. Some factors can also be deceiving.

Many people THINK that they did not get good hair removal treatment, when in fact they did not stick with it long enough to give it a fair shot. Others are following a schedule and or program/method that won't give them a steady visible progress fast enough for their taste. Many people THINK "all the hair grew back" 4 to 6 weeks later, when that is in fact just the next phase of hair growth. No one would take a before picture, do the treatment, take an after picture, and then wait a year to take another after picture to compare in order to "test electrolysis efficacy" yet that would be what would be needed to really see the effectiveness of one treatment in truth.

A little story to illustrate.
There once was a client who had a unibrow that was as bushy as privacy hedges. The treatments were done in such a way as to fully clear out the unwanted hairs and shape the brows as opposed to the gradual reduction technique that many (most?) would employ in this area. Although the first and second clearances came with angry red and swollen skin, the client was happy with the initial results.

A life changing event had the client move unexpectedly to another state, and in the new home did not find anyone who impressed the client enough to continue the work that had been started. So, the project was shelved.

As the fall came, the once movie star shaped brown became unkempt and by the dead of winter were once again a unibrow. The client was dejected thinking about the money "wasted" and felt as if there was no hope for the future, until the rays of spring started to come. As the anniversary date of the work approached, the bushy unibrow began to thin, subside, and finally, opened like a curtain. The movie star brows were back! They stayed that way all spring and summer, every year with certainty, just as the winter bushy unibrow came again during the untreated growth cycles.

The client called the practitioner to tell the story and to say that since the winters were spent with a hat on all the time, it did not matter about the unibrow during those months, since the prime time spring and summer were secure from that pesky unwanted hair.

And the client lived happily ever after.
(Yes, this is a true story)

Your prescription above to judge a patch test 3 months later would show variable results based on how the treatments were done, and what body part the test was done. While one might see some varying degree of reduction or not, it won't be the same as the view of that patch 365 days later.

Since most people don't want to make an 18 to 24 month process become a 36 month process, they generally are best served by choosing someone they trust and giving that person at least 12 months to show some results. If one's practitioner does full clearances in 6 weeks or less, it will be about the same as getting the entire area cleared out in one day or three as long as one sticks to the schedule. If the practitioner follows the skip around method, one won't really have a way to judge reduction for a good long time - especially if one is only getting one hour every 3 weeks.
