|Sitting in the front office getting my chin numbed.|
My issue? My issue is that I didn't ever really think that I would be doing this! I mean, why start something if you never intend on doing it? Simple right? Right. Dur-da-dur! So what changed? Some simple sorts of things. You know that simple little thing that says, I have now legally changed my name. And this coming school year I will be expecting my students and fellow staff to refer to me as Mrs.
I'm mostly doing alright with that thought at this point. It is something that I am trying to own, because that is the only thing to do. However, there are a couple of difficulties that I have been considering. One - I don't like shaving every day because it hurts and causes me some serious irritation, especially on my neck. Two - I don't like wearing a wig everyday as they can be painful and quite warm.
|Made it back to the room.|
The point, right? The point is the true pain of electrolysis. When I went in, I was totally inexperienced. I have never had this done, ever, anywhere and now I was going to pay to have someone do it to my face? Yikes! Alright, so I had it done with a bit of numbing cream on my face. She worked on my chin and cleared what she could in 2 hours.
During the session I asked her what her thought was for a treatment plan. She recommends a complete clearing of the face once per month. Which she could do in marathon 8 hour sessions with 2 electrologists working at the same time, while having lidocain injections. This would need to be done for a total of 12 to 18 times.
I did mention that I am a math teacher right? Alrighty, well shall I crunch some numbers then?
Warning - if calculating triggers you, skip ahead to the next bold line!
However, a math problem twist - I will most likely only need 2 electrologists for half of that time. But you can't just can't halve the cost, because you'll still need the lidocain. Which means your per hour cost drops by $125 for a per hour cost of $175.
Which means what? $300 per hour, multiplied by the range of hours of 96 to 144, gives a range of total cost from $28,800 to $43,200. And $175 per hour, multiplied by the range of hours of 96 to 144, gives a range of total cost from $16,800 to $25,200.
For a grand total of $45,600 to $68,400. Alrighty, if you know me in real life, you know that I don't swear here like I often do in real life! So, swear warning, avert your eyes little ones, what the fucking shit!!! That is the cost of the new 4 wheel drive truck that I want!
|A close-up of what was done.|
So yeah, I pay quite a bit. I have obviously not paid to have all of that done yet. It is a cost that will be spread out over time. So far I have had about 15 hours of work done, and I have not been fully cleared yet. I think it will take about another 4 to 5 hours.
Shall we also add in that I need to drive to LA to get it done? Yeah that takes me 3 to 4 hours, each way. Yeah there is that as well! But that is really minor compared to the other costs.
Alrighty. I'm done here. Thanks for visiting!
Love doing what is right for yourself!
