Electrolysis is a method of individual hair removal. It is the only permanent method of hair removal. A very fine probe is inserted into the hair follicle, a small electric charge is administered and the hair is removed by 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.
How many electrolysis treatment do you need?
Many factors influence hair growth, but generally electrolysis is a process that can take up to 1 year until you see a permanent result. You start by coming in once a week, then graduate to 2 weeks, then 3, and so on. Most session can last from 15 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the area.
We recommend to come in for a consultation to have all the information needed.
Is it painful?
Electrolysis is not painful, but it can be slightly uncomfortable, depending on the area. You can use a topical anesthetic cream if you feel the need.
