Absolutely not in my world. Yes I have seen it, but not done by myself. Electrolysis should be using a probe to go into an open pore. We use either heat or Galvanic depending on a few different reasons. Either way this should not cause scarring. I have been treating with electrolysis for 15 years and have a real passion for it so this does not happen. I have aftercare for good healing and also offer great skincare for keeping the skin healthy while treating. This is important. Often I will use laser to weaken hair so there is less electrolysis needed. Laser needs the hair to have some colour, electrolysis will kill any coloured hair!
