Electrolysis – Commitment, Consistency and Patience is Key: Hair Growth Cycle

Electrolysis – Commitment, Consistency and Patience is Key

Commitment, consistency, and patience is key to achieve many long-term or important goals in our lives. However, a quick fix mentality pervades our society today. It affects our personal expectations in many aspects of our lives.

Our instinct is to dislike complexity; therefore, we want things to happen at the speed of light.

We’re Living in an Instant Society

This expectation for instant results flows into our everyday life. We prefer to lose weight, look younger, and get rid of unwanted hair at the speed of light. Whatever happened to patience? Remember the old saying: “Patience is a virtue.”? Yikes! I’m probably dating myself.

Lessons Learned in the Past Still Apply Today

I recall when I took my training in electrolysis hair removal close to twenty-nine years ago. We were trained that to succeed in removing hair permanently it took commitment, consistency, and patience on the part of the client and the electrologist to get to the point of permanent removal of the unwanted hair.

It is still the same today. It takes those same principles because there is no quick fix for permanent hair removal at the speed of light scenario.

In discussing my clients’ concerns and expectations we are always able to come up with a treatment plan unique to the client. I will continue to educate my clients all the way through the process.

It is important to me that my clients ask questions and if there is a concern about the electrolysis treatment, I am always open to a discussion and to answer all questions.

Here are some of the more popular subjects of which my clients have inquired:

Commit to the process. Once you start permanent hair removal treatments, it is important to make a commitment from the beginning to the end of the electrolysis treatment for hair to be permanently gone.

Different types of hairs require different amounts of treatments. A robustly strong hair will need more treatments than a softer, less robust hair to be permanently gone.

There are different hair growth cycles. This is why it is important to book treatments when the hair is in the correct cycle for treatment of the hair/hairs. The target cycle is the anagen cycle.

Initially, close and consistent treatments are the key. A client that is new to electrolysis treatments will need consistent treatments close together for the first 2 – 4 months to clear the area of hair. Later, the treatment may be shorter in length or further apart. If the area is a larger area, the hair will have to be cleared in one area and then move on to clearing the rest of the area.

In Conclusion

It is important for me to understand the outcome my clients are looking to achieve. Continue to ask questions and share your concerns. It’s going to take commitment, consistency, and patience on both yours and my part for permanent hair removal to be achieved.
