What is Electrolysis?
Electrolysis is permanent hair removal which requires a series of treatments. It was invented in 1875 by Doctor Charles Michel, an opthomologist, in order to rid of an ingrown eyelash.
How does it work?
A sterile, disposable probe is inserted into the hair folicle, which is a natural opening in the skin. A small amount of electrical current cauterizes and destroys the dermal papilla ( the source of nourishment for the hair). Tweezers are used to slide the hair out without resistance.
What does it feel like?
You will feel a sensation of heat during the treatment. Some body parts are more sensitive than others, and tolerance varies from person to person. If you feel the need for something to numb the pain you can purchase Emla Creme from any pharmacy.
How many treatment will I need?
The number of treatments necessary will depend on several factors, including the amount of hair to be treated, the growth cycles of the hair, the previous method of hair removal used, heredity, hormone function, and normal psychologic changes. Most clients will see permanent results within a year. Treatments must be regular.
How often will I need a treatment?
That depends on the amount of hair you are removing and the previous treatment used.
What are the benefits of Electrolysis?
The number one benefit is that it is permanent!!! It treats every skin and hair colour. The hair dosent need to be a certain length as long as it is above the skin.
