What is Electrolysis?
Electrolysis is the only permanent type of hair removal.This technique destroys germinative cells responsible for hair growth. The number of treatments vary depending on the current means of hair removal, how much hair there is, and how coarse it is. In some cases, excessive hair growth may be secondary to abnormal hormone levels or other medical condition. With regular electrolysis treatments, patients notice improvement, quickly.
Most areas of the body can be treated with electrolysis, including the eyebrows, face, abdomen, thighs, breasts, and legs. There are generally no permanent side effects, but sometimes a temporary, slight reddening of the skin may occur.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Many Electrolysis Treatments Will I Need?
Many factors influence hair growth, so you will need to return for several electrolysis visits. The total number of sessions needed to remove hair permanently from a particular area will vary from person to person. Most people return once a week or every other week as needed. But the unwanted hair will be gone forever once the series of treatments is complete. Each treatment lasts between 15 minutes and one hour.
Is electrolysis safe?
Yes, when performed by properly trained and responsible electrologists. We follow standards of sterilization, practice infection control procedures, and invest in quality equipment to ensure your safety.
What if I’ve already had laser hair removal?
No worries, electrolysis is a great choice for permanently removing the hairs that the laser treatments didn’t get, especially for large areas like the chest, back, and legs.
