Before you begin electrolysis treatments
it's important to think about a few issues -- questions that only
you can answer either during a FREE 15-minute consultation or by
e-mailing the information to Laura in advance of your first appointment.
This will help narrow down the course of treatment, including how
often and how long your appointment times need to be initially.
I must tell you up front that this is NOT A ONE-TIME
SERIES OF TREATMENTS.
Your treatments will gradually become shorter and
further between visits with followup appointments!
And after a year and a half of recommended treatments you will have
60-90% less hair! And whatever hair remains will need further treatments
until they too are gone!
||Things to think about
and consider in advance of your first electrolysis appointment:
1. What areas are you wanting treated? Start out with the most important
ONE area first!
2. What temporary measures are you presently using to treat these
3. If you are tweeting/waxing hairs, then how often? Daily, twice
weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, etc?
4. If they have never been tweezed or waxed, are you bleaching? How
5. If you are trimming or shaving, please refrain 2-3 days before
6 . If you are tweezing, then how many hairs are you removing at each
interval? Guesstimate! If you are removing 10-30 hairs, then we should
be able to treat the area with a seven-minute electrolysis appointment.
If you are having a lip area treated, I never recommend more than
a 30-minute appointment at one interval, due to sensitivity. A goatee
area that has around 30-100 hairs or more may take a 30-45 minute
7 . Prioritize a main area that is your number one goal to start out
with and branch out as that area of hair diminishes.
8 . After treatment care if imperative! I recommend using either Kree
Formula 4 cream ($14) or Tend Skin ($20) to keep down infection.
9 . If your temporary way of dealing with unwanted hair is tweezing
or waxing, then you MUST QUIT! Those temporary measures make the hairs
get deeper, thicker and coarser! Electrolysis makes the hairs get
weaker, thinner, finer and softer until they are gone!
10. If you are not willing to 100% commit to item 9 above, then DO
NOT START ELECTROLYSIS BECAUSE IT WILL COMPLETELY UNDO YOUR TREATMENTS!
I hope this pre-treatment guide has been helpful. Carefully make your
decision on what course of action you are ready to take!
