Providing You With Effective Hair Removal Services
Electrolysis is the only permanent hair removal method for ALL SKIN TYPES and hair colors. There are many temporary methods of hair removal (abrasives, shaving, depilatories, waxing, tweezing, bleaching). These methods may cause side effects or even aggravate an existing problem. Most areas of the body can be treated.
What are the treatments like?
Permanent hair removal is accomplished by introducing a wire into the hair follicle along the side of the base of the hair root (papilla). A short wave current called thermolysis is then delivered to this area. A type of heating action takes place, causing a cellular destruction of the lower two-thirds of the hair follicle. The treated hair is then removed.
Since certain areas of the body are more sensitive to treatment than others, the sensations associated with electrolysis will vary.
Some regrowth in the treated area will normally be experienced over a period of time. However, with subsequent treatments, the hair will become finer in texture until the entire regeneration cycle has been permanently destroyed and hair growth ceases.
What causes unwanted growth?
Hair growth is the result of heredity and hormone levels. Also, some drugs, temporary methods of hair removal, and illnesses can stimulate hair growth. Electrolysis may be an option when hair growth is in an area of the body where it may not be desired.
How many treatments will I need?
Many factors influence hair growth. These factors vary from person to person. This will be determined during your initial consultation.
Myths About Electrolysis
Myth: Electrolysis is painful. In most cases, electrolysis actually does not cause much discomfort. Modern electrolysis methods have reduced the discomfort to a mere tingling. A topical anesthetic cream may be used in some cases.
Myth: Temporary methods of hair removal can be better. Chemical depilatories (liquids or creams) are often used to remove body hair. These products contain irritating chemicals and can be time-consuming and messy. Likewise, bleaches contain harsh chemicals and do little to disguise dark hair. They may also discolor skin. Waxing is another temporary method of hair removal and is usually done in salons. A hot wax is applied to the skin and removed once it has dried over the hair. The hair is stripped off when the wax is removed. Waxing can be painful and costly. Home waxing kits are available, but they can be messy and difficult to use. There are electrolysis devices available for home use, but they are often unsafe for use by anyone who is not trained in electrolysis.
There will be some redness and swelling at the treatment site. For most individuals, swelling and redness will subside in about 15-20 minutes.
