My Journey in choosing Electrolysis

Every journey has a beginning, middle and an end. The obvious ending for this journey was my decision to move forward with electrolysis.

My journey began when I was 11 and my Mom bought me my first Flicker razor.

I felt like such a grown up!! So with Razor and Barbasol shave cream in hand, I learned how to shave my legs and under arms.

Over the next 2 years, Mom explained “the facts of life” I got my first period when I was 13.

What Mom failed to explain was the hair growing on my face. PCOS was not a “thing” much less a diagnosis 41 years ago. So I grabbed my trusted Flicker and proceeded to shave my chin and upper lip.

Weekly shaving continued through my teen years until I started dating - then I shaved more often, until before I knew it I had to shave daily and If I had a date - I shaved twice a day!!

Fast forward to January 2019, I am now 53 years old and beginning my life all over again. I have been through the “Not great marriage” and am working through the anxiety associated with the stress.

I met with my primary doctor and had a heart to heart discussion with her. She told me that I did have all the symptoms of PCOS and we discussed options. I began researching permanent hair removal options and Electrolysis seemed to be the ONLY permanent solution.

At work one day I was looking through Groupon and found several Electrolysis options - I began by Googling and checking each provider on YELP. I finally decided on DOLCE Electrolysis and made my appointment. IMMEDIATELY via text and email, Mary made me feel so comfortable. I scheduled a trial 30 minute appointment and SO WISHed I had scheduled a full hour!!

Mary put me right to ease and made me realize - I AM NOT ALONE!! We talked through the entire appointment and let me tell you --- no pain at all - I have 8 tattoos - I know pain!

I have already scheduled my next 3 appointments - I cannot wait to share this journey!
