Electrolysis

Electrolysis is another hair removal method. Each individual hair is treated by inserting a tiny surgical probe into the hair follicle and directing a split second impulse of energy down to the hair root. The hair is then lifted out (not pulled out). This is repeated over and over until the desired area is cleared. Electrolysis is only as good as the technician however, so efficiency will differ from technician to technician.

Galvanic

A DC current is passed through the needle causing a chemical reaction in the hair follicle, which produces sodium hydroxide which destroys the hair follicle.

Is electrolysis painful?

This depends on the individual, some feel mild discomfort and others feel excessive pain.

How long does it take?

Electrolysis consists of a series of treatments. It is not one treatment and the hair is gone forever. This means that it is a weakening process. After an electrolysis treatment the hair should grow back thinner and finer. It also depends how thick or thin the unwanted hair is. For instance, someone who has been waxing or tweezing will need more treatments than someone who has not tampered with the area.

Does it damage the skin?

When the procedure is performed by a qualified technician, the tissue surrounding the hair follicle should remain undamaged. Obvious precautions such as wearing gloves and the use of disposable, pre-sterilized needles also minimise the risk of infection.

Temporary side effects may include some redness and swelling, dryness and scabs. If the procedure is not carried out by a professional, there is the risk of permanent skin damage resulting in a scarring or pitting of the skin.

How long do the results last?

Electrolysis is often viewed as a permanent hair removal method. Once the hair root is destroyed, the hair will not grow back, right?

In some cases hair does regrow in places and clients need to return once or twice a year for a cleanup. Hair can continue to grow in the underarms, pubic area.
