Electrolysis

What is Electrolysis?

Electrolysis is a method of removing individual hairs from the face and body. Electrolysis removes the hair root by the application of heat using electric current. The electrolysis device uses heat energy to eliminate hair growth.

Which areas of the body can be treated?

Most areas of the body can be treated with electrolysis. Commonly treated areas include eyebrows, chin, upper lip, face, stomach, thighs, breasts, legs, toes, fingers, back, and neck.

Are there side effects?

There are generally no permanent side effects, but sometimes a temporary, slight reddening of the skin may occur for a short period of time.

How many electrolysis treatments will I need?

Many factors influence hair growth, so you may need to return for several electrolysis visits.
The total number of sessions needed to remove hair permanently from a particular area will vary from person to person. Most clients return once a week or every other week as needed. The good thing is that once hair growth is destroyed from the hair follicle, the unwanted hair will be gone forever, once the series of treatments are completed.

How long are the treatments?

Each treatment lasts between 15 minutes to one hour. For example, an upper lip treatment is usually a 15 minute visit, while electrolysis for the back area might be 60 minutes. Please call to discuss your personal requirements and we can help you determine the length of visit.

What causes unwanted hair growth?

Hair growth is the result of heredity and hormone levels. Also, certain drugs and supplements can cause hair to grow in places that never had hair before. Temporary methods of hair removal like shaving, waxing, tweezing, etc. can cause more hair growth depending on the individual. Even illness can stimulate hair growth.

Is it painful?

Electrolysis actually does not cause much discomfort, however everyone’s tolerance level is different. Some clients describe the electrolysis treatment as a tingling sensation that lasts for seconds.

Pricing

Pricing is based on the length of time of your treatment. The amount of time per treatment and the number of treatment visits is based on hair density, coarseness, and growth cycle of the area to be treated. Please call to discuss your needs, and we will help you determine how many sessions you might need.
