I have been going to see Melissa and having electrolysis treatment for a number of years, which caused me to realise that using a qualified practitioner is of paramount importance. The original hairs subside but were replaced in other areas (apparently due to my genetic predisposition). However the hair generally is significantly reduced. I did use someone else a few years ago and ended up with scarring because the needle wasn’t used properly. I would recommend Melissa because she is very careful and without her I would have ended up with a lot of embarrassing facial hair.
