Not such a great experience
I saw Wendy for about three months at the start of 2008. It was my first experience with an electrologist, and I was not as educated then as I am now about the process and science of electrology. I experienced a lot of plucking and pustules with Wendy's technique. Basically, if you can feel a lot of plucking, then your hairs are being tweezed, not destroyed at the root. Not only is this completely ineffective in terms of hair removal, but it also distorts the shape of the hair follicle so that the electrolysis probe cannot slide in well, making the procedure more difficult and less effective. If the hairs are destroyed correctly, they will slide out effortlessly and you won't feel the plucking sensation at all. This was not the case with Wendy, who seemed to be more concerned with rapidly "clearing" the area so that I would feel comfortable with my immediate appearance than actually achieving permanent hair removal. In addition to the excessive plucking, Wendy's treatments were almost unbearably painful. I frequently left her chair feeling nauseous and shaky. She seemed reluctant, and sometimes irritated, to stop when I asked her to because I needed to take a break from the constant pain. It's not meant to be a comfortable procedure, but the amount of pain I experienced with Wendy was far and above that which I've felt with other electrologists. I also got a large number of pustules after my treatments with Wendy (little pus-filled blisters that look like pimples). They often scarred for weeks. The pustules appeared after all of my treatments with her. After three months of going about once a week, I decided to go to another electrologist because I was not satisfied with the results I was seeing. It was four weeks before my first visit to the new electrologist, and the hair on the treated area had a chance to grow out. I was very disappointed to see that there was zero reduction in the amount of hair in the area after that three months of expensive, painful treatments. That's not a long time in terms of electrolysis, but there should have been SOME reduction. The new electrologist's treatments and technique was superior to Wendy's in every way, and I saw significant results after the same amount of time that I saw Wendy for.----- I understand that Wendy has upgraded her machine to a new Apilus machine since I last saw her. I know many people rave about the Apilus, but one must also take into account the electrologist's skill and abilities. My experience with Wendy was that most of her technique was just plucking, not true electrolysis of the hair root. Wendy was always polite, would answer my questions, and was on time. Her fees are competitive. I really wanted to be satisfied with Wendy's work, but I was not. I like Wendy as a person, but I would not recommend her services as an electrologist.

Best Electrolysis Person Ever!!!
I wrote the below "asterisked" section of this review some time ago, and its all still true. But I also wanted to add that in March of 2008, Delicate Touch acquired a brand new, state-of-the-art, electrolysis machine called the Apilus Platinum (AP) that causes little to no pain. It is AMAZING!!! After experiencing the old machine, which could be quite painful, this new AP machine feels like a dream. On a "pain scale" of 1 to 10, with 10 being the most painful, the old machine could be a 7 or even a 10. The AP machine is a solid 1 or 2, even on the sensitive upper lip. This machine is especially great for TS/TG folks! To understand more about this new technology, please look at the Dectro International Electrolysis website for the Apilus Platinum machine or call Delicate Touch!

*****I have been utilizing Wendy's services for the past year and I am continually impressed by her dedication and her professionalism! She is always on time, friendly, and willing to go the extra mile (and in some instances, the extra ten miles!) for her clients. She is also extremely affordable, extremely clean/careful, and very sensitive to different people's needs. Wendy is someone that typifies what it means to be an honest, hard worker who provides phenomenal customer service! I have also greatly appreciated that she is TG/TS welcoming and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Wendy to my friends and to my family! If you are in need of electrolysis, Wendy is a great person to see!*****

Exceptional Service with Fanatastic Treatment Results
I've had several appointments with Wendy and each time she's been charming and down-to-earth but serious about her work. Even though I was my upper lip treated, she made me feel at ease. And she makes you feel special each visit. She has a great space at Rose City Acupuncture and Natural Health located on NE 63rd Ave and Sandy Blvd..
