Rave: With restrictions easing, electrolysis is back on the table, though only on my neck for now since both myself and my electrologist continue to wear maks.

Rant: Since I can't shave if I want the hair removed properly, I have a *literal* neckbeard now.

10 sessions down, only ~90+ to go... *sigh*

Is it permanent after 90 treatments, Spanks? Or by that point does the hormone therapy kick in?

Hormone therapy will make hair grow in a bit more slowly and thinner, but once the beard has grown in it'll never stop on its own. Laser will reduce it, but it could eventually come back, and I'm not a good candidate anyways, being very blonde.

Electrolysis goes in with a needle, one hair at a time, and shocks the follicle, causing the bulb to explode, killing the root, so it's permanent. The issue is that it only really works during certain stages of hair growth, and there's no way to tell which stage the hair is in until you pull it out. The only way to get it all is to do a full pass, and then keep doing it.

Average is between 100-200 sessions, though *thankfully* my facial hair is pretty sparse. The individual hairs are extremely thick and tough, but she's worked out the correct needle width and power to do it fairly easily. Last week we did a full pass of the neck, and this week we're going to do the underside of the chin.

Neck I barely feel it, for the most part, which is unusual, but as she goes further north it gets more and more painful, with the upper lip basically being the worst.

aaaaaaaaaaaa geez and here I thought having to give myself one little jab a day was a hassle, I mean, I knew that's *how* it worked, but not the gritty details, y'know?

I did 5 laser sessions which definitely lightened things, but I still get a "scruff" I can feel after about 2-3 days. It's not really visible, but it's still a huge issue for me.

I was just planning on trying to see an electrologist when the lockdown started, and I'm being way too paranoid about it to even consider it until there's a potential vaccine. I'm glad you're able to get back on it! :D

Rant: Grant's death is heartbreaking & my aunt is back in hospital with COVID

Rave: Similar to you Rorschach, week 2 on the new exercise/diet regime is underway well, week 2 is where I normally have willpower issues so we'll see what happens, cross fingers

Been working from home since March due to Covid restrictions and now they're trickling us back in to work. My wife is due to pop in 5 weeks and now I'm ultra paranoid about catching it and not being able to be in the hospital with her when it's time!

Rant: I don't know how the rant / rave system works
Rave: God dammit!
