I’m showing this treatment because it was a difficult case for me and I didn’t do such a great job. It’s important for fellow electrologists to see that even experienced practitioners have difficulty. I like to focus on tough cases and not just show successes.
As noted in the video, this 65-year-old man’s skin was really tough. His hairs were large, close-together (a forest) and the roots were gigantic. The client also had back problems, so positioning him was difficult.
In this case I relied on thermolysis because the “gas-blow” (tight follicle openings) from the DC lifted the stratum corneum (outer layer of the epidermis). I used about 0.5 mA: that’s about a third of normal body technique levels for the blend. Thermolysis was manual at moderately high levels.
As noted, nearly all the root sheaths inverted or sheared-off as the hairs were removed from the follicles. The further complication was seeing the white hairs and I had to use cross-lighting. Most of the time the light was in my face, and the camera was uncomfortably close. I had to twist my head to get in there. I hated doing this case, but I wanted you to see how hair sheaths invert and form plugs in the follicles.
Most of the time, you don’t see the clumps of sheath, because they are too small. Usually the clumps in the dead follicles cause pustules … but those too, are no problem. Just wash them out; no need for “products.”
Thankfully, the procedure turned out just fine. The client is happy and, well, so am I.
