                            The Gentle Way to Permanent Hair Removal

For more than 100 Years, the only recognized method of truly permanent hair removal has been electrolysis. With this technique, a fine probe is inserted into the hair follicle and a low-intensity electric current is applied, effectively eliminating the germinative cells which are responsible for hair growth.

Electrolysis is at present the only technique approved by the Food and Drug Administration and Permanently removes hair. It can be used effectively on all colors, types and shapes of hair,on all skin types and ethnicities, and in all areas of the body.

                            Frequently Asked Questions

 What is Electrolysis?

What is Electrolysis?
Electrolysis is the only method approved by the FDA for permanent removal of unwanted hair.
Electrolysis is permanent hair removal. Regardless of the cause – heredity, metabolic, or hormonal conditions – electrolysis will permanently remove unwanted hair to reveal a glowing, confident you.

 Does Electrolysis Work ?

Absolutely. Electrolysis is the only method approved by the FDA for permanent removal of unwanted hair. As the hair is treated, regrowth is prevented rather than just removed temporarily. Only electrolysis provides both hair removal and hair elimination.

 Will electrolysis work for me?

Almost certainly. Electrolysis is effective for all skin types, hair types, skin colors, hair colors, and areas of the body.

 What is science behind electrolysis?

A small electric current is transmitted by a fine, sterile probe (or needle) directly into the natural opening of the hair follicle, destroying the dermal papilla, the matrix, and an area called “the bulge”, all of which cause hair to grow and regenerate. Learn more about how electrolysis works.

 Why do people get electrolysis hair removal?

Maybe it’s just an unwelcome maintenance routine that takes a lot of time, but often, unwanted hair creates self-consciousness serious enough to impair relationships with other people. If unwanted hair gets in the way of your confidence, social life, work, sports, schedules or even self-expression, this is your opportunity to act.

 Is all electrolysis the same?

There are three types, or modalities, of electrolysis used today – galvanic (current produces a chemical reaction), thermolysis (short-wave which produces heat) and a modality that blends the two. They all result in effective permanent hair removal.

 Does electrolysis have any side effects on the skin?

Immediately following treatment, there may be a temporary redness or tenderness, which varies with each individual. The latest technology has made electrolysis more comfortable and effective than ever before. Your electrologist will provide you with post treatment instructions and any personal attention you may need. You are assured of the best care from a skilled hair removal professional.

 My grandmother used to get electrolysis treatments. Has the technology changed much?

Permanent hair removal using electrolysis has come a long way since its beginnings in 1875. Today’s computer technology enables the electrologist to work with more speed and comfort. Epilators are much quicker, utilizing current timings of thousandths of a second over the longer current applications of the past, plus, intensity settings can now be modulated to varying proportions. The instruments and equipment used in a contemporary electrologist’s office are just part of the changes that have occurred in the electrolysis industry.
