Facts About Electrolysis
Electrolysis is the only permanent method for removal of unwanted or superfluous hair growth. Electrolysis is the only medically approved method of removing hair permanently, for all types of hair. Electrolysis has been safely and successfully practiced since 1875.
The purpose is to destroy the hair follicle (permanently) without damaging or altering the texture and appearance of the skin.
A fine probe is gently inserted along the hair shaft into the natural opening of the hair follicle until the bulbous area is reached. A very mild current is then applied. This coagulates the growing cells, thus allowing the hair to be removed.
There is no feeling during the insertion of the probe, but a slight sensation of heat is often described when the current is applied.
All probes are pre-sterilized and disposed of after each treatment
A single use sterile disposable needle is gently inserted into the hair follicle. A tiny amount of current is emitted to destroy the source of hair growth. Expect to see the hair becoming finer, diminishing and finally disappearing over a period of time with regular treatments. Learn more by booking an Assessment.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser treatments can significantly reduce the amount of hair over a period of time, but since it targets melanin, the pigment of the hair and skin, hair that is light, hair that is in the resting stage and close to the surface of the skin ready to be shed, or those with dark skin are not as successfully treated with laser as are those with light skin and dark hair.
The main difference between Laser and Electrolysis is what the FDA allows the methods to be labeled: Laser can only be called “Permanent Hair Reduction,” while Electrolysis is the ONLY method that is permanent removal.
Plucking, Waxing, etc.
Plucking, tweezing, threading, waxing, and epilady are temporary methods of hair removal. “For every action there is an opposite reaction.” These hairs become distorted and often lead to ingrown hairs and cause scarring. The pulling actions causes ,it grows deeper and therefore has a richer food supply to grow stronger!
