I am so glad I found Chandra at Lotus Electrolysis. She is very thorough and meticulous. You can tell by her home that she does not leave a speck of dust lying around, so she WILL find every last hair and remove it. Not only is she good at what she does, she is an incredibly interesting person and has amazing stories of adventure. I've loved to get to know her a bit throughout our sessions.
I had very little hope for unwanted hair removal to work on me. I have light red course hairs and was told by many that it would be a difficult process and redheads tend to be more sensitive to pain. Laser only works if you have dark hair, so that was not an option for me. The process to remove hair on my face and chest has been a bit slower than I expected, but gosh is it a blessing to not have to shave every day! Chandra was gentle, and though it hurts- it is well worth it! My skin looks so much better and I've gotten a huge boost of confidence! Now when my boyfriend goes to touch my face/chest/neck, I don't shy away!
Lotus electrolysis is one of the best, if not the best, place in the seattle area. I've been getting electrolysis done for about 3 years and recently moved to the area. I visited about 3 electrologists in the greater Seattle area and had poor experiences with all three of them before finding Lotus! (Message me if you want the info of the other 3 people.) I had breakouts, it was very painful, and my skin stayed red for a long time after.
At Lotus, the treatment involves minimal pain and redness afterwards- much more in line with treatments I had been receiving for years before moving here! I never get breakouts and the atmosphere is relaxing. Bonus- she actually has availability, unlike most of the electrologists in the area. Only downside is she doesn't take credit card and doesn't work weekends but those are no big deals for a great electrologist!!
I've been seeing Chandra for facial hair removal for a few months now (I think I've had 12 sessions). I have a *lot* of facial hair, so this is not a simple process! I have nothing but good things to say about Chandra and her practice. Let's see:
- The pain is not that bad at all. I tried IPL before, and it was a disaster -- tons of pain and poor results. In comparison, I can barely feel the pain of electrolysis at all. The tweezing step is actually slightly more painful than the electric part. I think this is partly due to the machine (an Apilus Senior or Plus, I think?), and partly due to Chandra's excellent technique. Also, Chandra applies lidocaine gel to the sensitive parts of my face before working, at no extra charge. (My old IPL place wanted to charge $60 for a tube.)
- The pricing is exceptionally fair. It's $60 for 60 minutes of actual electrolysis time, and she frequently runs a bit long (which is fine -- free extra time!). She also gives a 10% discount for paying for 10 sessions in advance.
- I really appreciate that Chandra never calls attention to my gender presentation. I'm sure that most people who work in this field have a lot of transgender clients, but it's still a good thing to note.
- Chandra is very flexible about scheduling; she has lots of afternoon/evening times available. She even did a session for me an hour after getting back from the airport!
I couldn't be more pleased with Chandra, and I'll definitely be coming back here until every last facial hair of mine is gone. 🙂
