Q: What is Electrolysis?

A: With well over a century of proven effectiveness, electrolysis is the only safe and permanent method of hair removal. Today's Electrolysis treatments remain the only process approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the American Medical Association (AMA).


Q: How does it work?

A:Using modern technology, skilled Electrologists will permanently remove unwanted hair from the face or body. This process utilizes a very fine sterile probe that is inserted into the hair follicle and a small amount of high frequency energy is applied. This procedure destroys the hair growth cells in the follicle tissue, so it can no longer produce hair, making it the Permanent Solution.  This, however is not a one shot deal but takes several treatments.


Q: How long does it take?

A:The average treatment ranges from 15 minutes to one hour or more. The length of each appointment depends upon the amount of hair that needs to be removed. Due to factors including- hair growth cycles, heredity, medical conditions, hormones, medications and previous use of temporary hair removal methods, the number of treatments required to permanently remove hair varies with each client.
