Electrolysis is a method of hair removal that uses an electric current, heat or the combination of both to permanently destroy the hair follicle. It is a safe and effective solution for removing unwanted hair from various parts of the body.
How does electrolysis work?
During electrolysis, a fine probe is inserted into the hair follicle. A small amount of direct current, heat or the combination of both is then applied to the probe, which destroys the hair follicle and prevents future hair growth. The process is repeated for each individual hair follicle.
Is electrolysis painful?
Most people experience some level of discomfort during electrolysis, but it is generally well-tolerated. The sensation is often described as a slight stinging or pricking feeling. Our experienced electrologist will take measures to minimize any discomfort and ensure a comfortable treatment experience.
How many electrolysis sessions are needed?
The number of electrolysis sessions needed varies depending on factors such as the area being treated, hair thickness, and individual response to the treatment. Multiple sessions are typically required to achieve permanent hair removal. Our electrologist will assess your specific needs and provide a personalized treatment plan.
Is electrolysis safe?
Electrolysis is a safe and FDA-approved method of hair removal. Our electrologist is a trained professional who follows strict hygiene and safety protocols to ensure your safety during the treatment. We use sterile, disposable probes for each client to prevent any risk of infection.
Are there any side effects of electrolysis?
Some common side effects of electrolysis may include redness, swelling, and temporary skin irritation in the treated area. These side effects are usually mild and subside within a few hours or days. Our electrologist will provide you with aftercare instructions to minimize any potential side effects.
Can electrolysis be performed on all skin types?
Yes, electrolysis can be performed on all skin types and colors. Unlike other hair removal methods, electrolysis targets the hair follicle directly, making it suitable for a wide range of skin tones and hair types.
Is electrolysis permanent?
Yes, electrolysis is considered a permanent hair removal method. Once a hair follicle is destroyed, it will no longer produce new hair. However, it is important to note that electrolysis may require multiple sessions to achieve complete and long-lasting results.
How should I prepare for an electrolysis session?
Prior to your electrolysis session, it is recommended to avoid sun exposure, tanning beds, and any hair removal methods that remove the hair from the root, such as waxing or tweezing. It is also important to keep the treatment area clean and free from any lotions, creams, or oils.
