What is Electrolysis?
Electrolysis is a method of removing individual hairs from the face or body. Today’s medical electrolysis devices destroy the growth center of the hair with chemical or heat energy. After a very fine probe is inserted into the hair follicle, the hair is removed with tweezers.
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.
What are the Benefits of Electrolysis?
In addition to producing more permanent results, electrolysis is extremely versatile. It can help inhibit new hair growth for all skin and hair types. Electrolysis may also be used anywhere on the body, including the eyebrows.
What to Expect During your Electrolysis?
Electrolysis is another type of hair removal technique that is done by a dermatologist. It also disrupts hair growth. The process works by inserting an epilator device into the skin. It uses shortwave radio frequencies in hair follicles to stop new hair from growing. This damages your hair follicles to prevent growth and causes existing hairs to fall out. However, you’ll still need multiple follow-up appointments for the best results.
Unlike laser hair removal, electrolysis is backed by the U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)Trusted Source as a permanent solution.
The stated treatment times include time to get changed at the beginning and end of your treatment. If you are a new client, we do ask that you arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your treatment to complete a consultation. Arriving late to your appointment may mean we have to shorten your session.
