What is electrolysis?
Is it permanent?
Yes! Electrolysis is the only form of permanent hair removal recognized and approved by the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Federal Drug Administration (FDA).
Electrolysis was discovered over 130 years ago. It has been proven safe and effective on all hair and skin types and colors and on all body locations.
Does it hurt?
Some folks fall asleep! Usually it feels like tiny pin pricks. Under the nose is most painful.
How long does it take?
Electrolysis is performed in a series of treatments ranging from 15 minutes to an hour or more. Each person is unique, so treatment times and length of service varies. All clients must stop plucking, though!
The length of time depends on the amount of hair, its coarseness, the cause of the excess hair, and many other factors. However, once the hair follicle has been eliminated, the hair is dead and will not regrow.
Electrolysis eliminates unwanted hair permanently, thus removing the need for time-consuming temporary hair removal treatments.
Electrolysis is successful on all skin and hair types, and on all parts of the body (face, neck, abdomen, nipples, bikini line, armpits, anywhere!).
The treatments are effective and comfortable – no other hair removal method can claim such universal acceptability with permanent results. You will love the look of your smooth hair-free skin.
Electrolysis vs. Waxing and Tweezing
Waxing and tweezing cause the hair to grow in stronger and thicker, and so are obviously not a permanent solution to unwanted hair. Electrolysis removes unwanted hair permanently.
Can men use electrolysis?
Many men seek electrolysis for permanent hair removal on hairlines, eyebrows, beard lines, shoulders, back, neck, chest, ears and nose. Ingrown hairs can also be treated.
What causes excess hair?
Many factors can contribute to the growth of excess hair: heredity, normal physiological changes such as puberty, pregnancy and menopause, malfunction of the endocrine system, medication, topical influences and stress.
Is Electrolysis Safe?
Electrolysis is recognized and approved by the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Federal Drug Administration (FDA). Electrolysis is the ONLY form of permanent hair removal recognized by these agencies.
Electrolysis procedures conform to Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards, including sterilization of all equipment and one-time use of needles.
The risk of any sort of complication is extremely low.
