What is Electrolysis?

Permanent hair removal through electrolysis and thermolysis techniques. Using state-of-the-art technology, a minute amount of electricity is gently applied to the base of the hair follicle. This process destroys the hair growth tissue. Therefore, the regenerative ability of the hair follicle is permanently eliminated. I am committed to clearly explaining the electrolysis process to provide a great service to all of my clients.You can learn more about Electrolysis by watching the video below.

Why Should I Choose Electrolysis Over Other Methods?

Laser, Waxing, Tweezing, Shaving, Threading and Depilatory creams are all temporary hair removal methods and may cause vellus hairs to become terminal hairs.

What Are The Side Effects?

Temporary skin reactions such as Redness, swelling, white heads, and/or scabs may or may not occur after treatment. This differs from person to person; these are all normal skin reactions to Electrolysis. 

 

It's extremely rare but allergic reactions to Stainless Steel probes may occur.  Golden problem are available as an alternative.

What Does Electrolysis Feel Like?

Every individual reacts different to the treatment. Some feel nothing more than a warm sensation, while others may feel the procedure is somewhat uncomfortable. Topical numbing cream is available to use prior to treatment, I can also adjust the settings to your level of comfort.

How Many Treatments Are Necessary?

A series of treatments are necessary over a period of time.  The length of time varies from person to person and dependent on the following factors:

  • Stage in the hair cycle, (Anagen is what we need).

  • How consistent you are with your appointments.

  • The amount of energy you are capable of handling, with respect to the skin's reactions.

  • Some coarser terminal hairs require more than one treatment.

  • Glandular disorders such as PCOS, thyroid, Menopause, will create hair as well as some medications for these disorders. 

  • Stress will cause unwanted hair.

  • Tweezing and/or waxing is not permitted on areas being treated with electrolysis.
