Thinking of removing that unwanted hair permanently? Electrolysis is one of the oldest methods of hair removal, which targets each hair individually. Majority of the hair on the body can be treated with electrolysis, including but not limited to, face, underarms, breast, abdomen and legs. Unlike laser hair removal, electrolysis is a proven method for removing white or grey hair, as well as extremely thin hair.
HOW IT WORKS
A probe is inserted into the hair follicle and destroys the hair using heat energy. The hair is then removed from the face or body using a tweezer.
How many treatments will I need?
There are several factors that affect hair growth, therefore the number of treatments will vary from person-to-person. Most clients return within one to two weeks, and continue to do so until the unwanted hair no longer grows. Unlike laser hair removal, there is no limit to how many treatments a client can do in a certain time-frame.
Are there any side affects?
Although there are no permanent side affects related to electrolysis, the skin temporarily gets red after the treatment.
Is there any after-care or downtime related to electrolysis?
For 24 hours post treatment, avoid the following:
- no hot water directly on the treated area
- no direct sun exposure
- no gym or exercise
- no makeup/moisturizers/serums/gels if the face was treated
