Electrolysis Permanent Hair Removal

Electrolysis Permanent Hair Removal

Electrolysis is the only proven method of permanent hair removal approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). Electrolysis has been around since the 1800’s first invented by ophthalmologist Dr. Charles Michel, to remove his patients’ painful ingrown eyelashes.

Electrolysis is a method of removing individual hairs from the face or body using medical devices. It is highly effective at removing hair of any colour to provide a permanent hair removal solution. It is ideal for a few stray hairs on the chin or upper lip, especially if the hair is white or grey and unsuitable for treatment using Laser.

Electrolysis is considered one of the most effective, long-lasting treatments for hair removal available.

It’s a widely available solution which can be used for any skin type and hair colour.

A simple concept, electrolysis involves cutting off the blood supply to the hair, preventing it from growing any further.

After just a few treatments, you can expect smoother, hair-free skin that no longer requires the maintenance associated with shaving, waxing or plucking.

You don’t need to plan any recovery time, and you can continue your usual routine as soon as the session is complete.

During Electrolysis

The procedure includes a very fine probe inserted into the hair follicle, a little energy is released in the form of heat or chemical to destroy the hair root, then the detached hair is removed with tweezers

A course is recommended as each individual hair will have its own hair growth cycle.

There are three stages involved (most active stage-anagen, end of the active stage-catagen, the resting stage-telogen).

Electrolysis is most effective during the most active stage of the hair growth cycle as there is increased blood flow and hormones to feed that hair.

Side effects

When the treatment is complete, you might find some slight redness or swelling in the area treated.

This is completely normal and disappears after only a short while.

You may also experience some tiny whiteheads or scabs, which will also resolve quickly leaving you with smoother, hairless skin.

At the electrolysis consultation, the number of courses will be discussed as it depends on the size of the area, condition of the hairs and medical contributing factors, a patch test will also be included.
