Electrolysis Hair Removal

Step 1: An electrologist inserts a fine probe (usually thinner than the hair being treated) into the natural opening of the hair follicle 

Step 2: A tiny amount of electrical current is then applied to destroy the hair growth cell.

Step 3: The hair is removed 

    


Electrolysis is still the ONLY permanent method of hair removal.

There are many other methods to get rid of unwanted hair, but none of those are proven to be permanent.

What is Electrolysis?
Electrolysis is the science of permanent hair removal utilizing a sterile probe is inserted into the hair follicle and a small amount of electrical current depending on the modality used, is discharged destroying the hair follicle and preventing it from producing another hair.

What causes excess hair?

According to current medical science, excessive hair growth is primarily caused by three factors: Normal Systemic Changes, Heredity and Glandular Disturbances.


Normal Systemic Changes can be caused by puberty, pregnancy, menopause and hysterectomy. Puberty stimulates change in both the body and hair-growth patterns. Common pattern changes include an increase in hair follicle activity and an overall darkening/thickening of the hair shaft. The diminished hormonal levels in a woman¹s body following menopause and/or a hysterectomy can promote new hair growth on the face and body.


Glandular Disturbances originate in the endocrine system, which is responsible for our physical development. Certain specific medications, such as male hormones, birth control pills, and even pregnancy can disrupt the delicate endocrine balance and produce unwanted hair.


Hereditary Hirsutism, excessive and abnormal growth of hair, is found in all nationalities, some more than others. Electrolysis can permanently solve this problem regardless of nationality or the amount of hair. However, many cases of “excessive” hair growth are actually normal in relation to the physiological changes the client may be going through, just as it is normal for many men to go bald. Most instances of baldness are cause by heredity and are considered normal.

It is worth noting that stress, both emotional and physical, can stimulate the adrenal glands to initiate a hormonal reaction that can cause finer hairs to become more coarse and noticeable. Increased blood supply can also stimulate hair to grow thicker and darker. Waxing and tweezing can cause an increase in blood supply in many clients while others experience reduction of hair growth.


Are all hairs eliminated in one treatment?
Deep, coarse hairs cannot always be eliminated with one treatment; thus breaking down the hair germ cells may require additional treatments. Due to the cyclical nature of hair growth, new hair as well as hairs emerging from a dormant phase will be treated and may be visible the same time as finer re-growth hairs.

What are the Side Effects?
Immediately following treatment, there may be a slight pinkness and/or swelling which usually disappears within a short time. Occasionally, small whiteheads or tiny scabs may occur. Whiteheads usually are indicative of bacteria entering the follicle after treatment. Remember to keep the area as clean as possible for the 24 hours immediately following treatment. You will also receive a copy of the After Care instructions.
