Electrolysis/Thermolysis.....

....M3Inline6 is going under the machine. I am taking my manscaping to a new level. I've grown tired of shaving my beard/chin/cheeks, and I've grown tired of the occasional ingrown hairs (..which cause hyperpigmentation of the skin of African Americans). I'm going to have a consultation performed sometime this week. Have any of you had the procedure performed? If so, what was the cost per hour? I'm expecting at least $100 per hourly session, and at least a good 15 hours of work to clear a portion of my beard/chin/cheeks.

These places are VERY negotiable on price

Which cheeks you getting done
Did you end up going through with the treatments?


P.S. I don't mind shaving the other cheeks (..or the legs or my head for that matter), but I'm so over shaving my face.

I've been thinking more & more about this also.

Interested to see how it turns out before I pull the trigger.

I will update this thread. My consultation with the first place is Tuesday at 2pm, and she will likely do a session that day. If I decide to give her my business, I'll take before and after photos. I'm setting up a consultation with another place as well. Their rates for the timeframes I'm looking for seem reasonable, but I will take Jon Jon's advice and negotiate. TheElectrolysisLab charges $80 for an hour and $145 for two hours.

I don't think you deal with ingrown hairs nor hyperpigmentation (..which takes MONTHS to go away, and that's assuming no further skin trauma.......like, from another ingrown hair), so you probably don't have any idea what a pain in the ass hair in certain areas can be.

Shaving got old 20 years ago. There are other maintenence issues (like ears, neckline, and eyebrows) that I'm also tired of fvcking with every day.

I'd like to be able to hit an event without having to spend an hour on manscaping first.

Indeed! I've checked out some before & after photos on a few hair forums, and the results are astounding, and I don't have half as much hair to be removed as some of those individuals. Even if this ran me a total of $2k over the span of multiple sessions, it would be well worth it to never have an ingrown hair or need to shave again.

Which means they will take $60 an hour. Stop being black and start being a little Jewish. Get to gettin and beat em down to $50 an hour with a bagel.

He and JonJon used to be the official metrosexual OT members, long before they were mods. This is nothing new.

Those were the days. Shave DIY's, etc. Cowmoo32 just caused a flashback to 2003.

I'm going to take the "I'm on a budget" approach. If I claim to be Jewish they'll charge me more.

I always have to laugh when I see a thread described as "Not Work Safe." Is there anything on the OT forum that's really "work safe"? If I were your boss, I'd be mad if you spent any time on this forum at work at all.
