What is Electrolysis?
Electrolysis is permanent hair removal. Regardless of the cause – heredity, metabolic, or hormonal conditions – electrolysis will permanently remove unwanted hair. Electrolysis is the only FDA-approved method of killing unwanted hair permanently it has been practiced since 1875.
Most lasers cannot be used, or do not work, on dark skin, skin that is tanned from the sun (or tanning booths), around the eyes, and it does not work at all on blonde, red, white, or fine-textured hair. While electrolysis works on all hair colors, types, and all skin colors.
The process involves the use of a microscopic probe that emits heated electric currents directly into the hair follicle shaft. It destroys the follicle and its ability to regrow or support new hair growth.
The number of treatments necessary varies with each client. The amount of hair, the methods used to hide hair before treatment, genetics, hormones, nutrition, medications, and health of the individual will all be factors that determine how many treatments or sessions will be required. For areas that have been plucked, threaded, tweezed, or waxed treatments will be more frequent than for areas that have been shaved. Those treatments create a “distorted” hair follicle and instead of the hair going into the skin straight, it becomes curved like a “J” or “S.” It will also go down deeper into the skin and become tougher. This is evident by ingrown hairs or bumps as the hair under the skin tries to get out, as opposed to electrolysis. While bleaching, depilatories, and shaving irritate the skin through harsh chemicals or rough manual scrapping of the skin.
Treatment sessions can range from 15 minutes to more than an hour depending on the area being treated. To achieve optimum results, it is important to follow the recommended treatment plan.
The hair you see is not all the hair you have. Hair grows in cycles. That’s why it takes more than one appointment to permanently clear an area.
