Skin Care Review: Electrolysis (hair removal)
by louise, oxford UK
permanently removes unwanted hair from upper lip and other areas of the face
painful, may take several treatments for permanent results, danger of scarring
A local beauty salon performed electrolysis on my upper lip and between my eyebrows--it was quite painful, especially close to the lip. I thought the results would be worth it, though, as waxing, depilatory creams etc were causing irritation and preventing me from using the skincare products I was using on the rest of my face. After some initial soreness, the skin quickly settled down and I was hopeful that in time I would be free of the inconvenience of depilation altogether. My beautician recommended 15 minute treatments once a fortnight, which I went to for several months and there was a great diminution of growth in the areas treated. On the last occasion, though, an inexperienced practitioner carried out the procedure and burned my face badly--I still have small but visible scars where she inserted the needle.
Always ask for an experienced person to do the procedure. It does work, though.
