(Just as a side note, I hate it when people say, “I heart [blank].” Don’t know why, it just grates on me.)
I’ve been doing electrolysis now for well over a year. Seriously, it’s one of the best investments I’ve ever made, other than perhaps my Palm.
Electrolysis is a method of removing hair. A needle is inserted into the hair follicle and electricity is passed through to the hair follicle, essentially killing the root. Now, it’s not like you can do this once and be done with all the hair in one area. Each pore that has hair averages 3 different hairs in each individual pore. So the hair the electrolysis is killing is only 1 of 3. You will essentially have to go back to that pore 2 more times to be “hairless”.
I started by doing this on my underarms. It took about a year, having appointments once or twice a month in half hour increments before I would consider myself hairless. Here’s a not-so-great picture, but I haven’t shaved for over six months:
(Sorry for the not-so-great pictures…but it gives you an idea.)
Believe me, it’s the best thing in the world to not even worry about shaving.
Everything comes with a price, and even though it’s expensive, portioned out over a long period of time it’s very affordable. The bigger price is: the pain. It freaking hurts to have this done. And I’m getting it done on my bikini area, which, as you know, is extremely sensitive, and it HURTS!! But it’s totally worth it. I’d do it again in a heartbeat.
I could have done laser, but it’s a newer technology and it doesn’t work on the really fine, light hairs that people like me have.
Eventually, I’ll have my legs done too, so then I can completely throw away my razor. No stubble, no nicks, no having to wear pants when I want to wear a skirt because I don’t have time to shave…
What else can I tell you so that you’ll go get this done, too??
