Electrolysis is the only method approved by the FDA for permanent hair removal. Practitioners of electrolysis have been removing unwanted hair since 1875 proving to be safe and effective for removing hair permanently.
The Electrologist uses a sterilized, disposable probe (filament) which is inserted into the hair follicle, a natural opening in the skin. An electric current is then passed down the filament destroying the hair root. The loosened hair may then be removed with forceps (tweezers). Once all the cells have been destroyed in the follicle no hair can be produced in that follicle again. The hairs root, dermal papilla, has been permanently destroyed.

How Long Would It Take To Remove All My Hair?
An Electrologist cannot give an exact date or number of treatments needed to achieve permanent hair removal. A common misconception about electrolysis is that you need only one treatment per hair. The truth is, multiple treatments are needed depending from person to person and body region to body region
Staying on track and being dedicated to the process and treatment plan you and your Electrologist has made will get you to your goal of permanent hair removal quicker.
Temporary methods of hair removal such as tweezing and waxing can sometimes cause the hair to become deeply rooted, coarser and darker than usual. These methods of hair removal are not recommended on the area being treated by electrolysis, it only prolongs the Electrologist from retiring the hair growth. Shaving and cutting the hair is only recommended between treatments because it does not cause any damage to the hair root.
What causes hair growth?
Hormones control the development of every organ in the body including the hair follicles. Both sexes produce Androgen hormones which stimulate receptor cells to produce hair, especially pubic and axillary (underarm) hair. Hair growth in other areas can be linked to androgen sensitivity, amount of androgens produced and heredity.
- Many drugs can cause either excess androgen secretion or hirsutism, which will produce excess hair growth.
Temporary methods of hair removal:
-Tweezing, waxing and threading
- Hirsute is inherited by either parent.
Cycle of life:
- Hormone changes- puberty, pregnancy and menopause
- Too much androgen secretion, over active glands, insulin resistance or hyperthyroidism.

Is Electrolysis Painful?
Each individual’s pain tolerance varies during treatment. A heat sensation will be felt. However; the Electrologist can make adjustments in the timing and/ or intensity of the current to find a setting that comfortable for you.
Does Electrolysis Have Any Side Effect?
You may experience a slight swelling and/or redness on treated areas.

Occasionally slight scabbing may appear after treatment which is a natural part of the healing process, please follow the home care till healing is complete to help prevent scaring.
