Electrolysis: Electrolysis current is meant to treat only the hair follicle. It would be very unusual for it to cause a problem on the skin (dent) 7 months later with no immediate damage in the area treated after the procedure. Consult with a your electrolysis technician and/or with a dermatologist. Hope this helps
