What is Electrolysis?

Electrolysis is the permanent removal of hair by the use of electricity. It is introduced to the base of the hair follicle in order to destroy the root of the hair.

How is Electrolysis Performed?

A very fine probe is inserted along the hair follicle into its natural opening. Once the probe is inserted, electricity is delivered to the hair papilla in order to cut off the blood supply to the hair follicle and permanently stop the hair growth. After the follicle has been permanently destroyed the hair will slowly be slid out with a pair of tweezers.

Will all hairs be destroyed after one treatment?

Unfortunately it is not that easy. One hair will go through 3 different phases for 3 months. They are called Anagen, Catagen, and Telogen.

The best results will be from removing the hair in the Anagen phase. During the other 2 phases electrolysis will still weaken the follicle. Keeping consistent and frequent appointments is the key to success with permanent hair removal.

How many electrolysis treatments will be necessary?

The amount of treatments necessary to achieve permanent hair removal will vary from individual to individual. It is dependent on many factors such as hair growth cycle, area to be treated, age, hormones and etc.

Is Electrolysis safe?

Electrolysis has a 125 year history of safety and effectiveness. It is safe for all areas of the body and skin colors.
