Electrolysis is a permanent hair removal solution for men and women available to treat all skin types and hair types. It has been used for over 100 years for its efficacy and safety to remove unwanted hair on the body and the face. Hairs are targeted one at a time, making this a popular hair removal choice for small areas like the upper lip and chin.
Electrolysis is often used to treat areas of the body that cannot be treated with a laser. It is also a brilliant option to target the fine hairs that can be present even after laser treatment has finished.
Did you know that there are certain areas of the body that should not be treated with laser?
Laser can, in some cases, send hair growth into overdrive. This is called paradoxical hair growth. Here, electrolysis is the answer.
How does it work?
A very fine probe is inserted into the opening of the hair follicle and a small amount of energy is released. This energy travels down the hair follicle where it reaches the root, destroying it either via heat or with a chemical reaction, or a combination of the two.
The level of intensity of this treatment can be adjusted for each patient depending on his or her skin type and hair type.
After treatment, the hair should appear lighter and finer in texture. It can take a course of treatment to achieve permanent results but you will see a difference after each treatment.
