Electrolysis is the only proven method of permanent hair removal. Excessive hair is becoming a more noticeable and embarrassing problem in today's society. We live in an increasingly fast-paced, stressful environment, and it has been found that people under stress often develop heavier growths of hair than they might under normal conditions. There are several other factors for hair growth such as hormonal changes, certain medications, genetics, etc.
Many different hair and skin types can benefit from electrolysis because it doesn't target hair pigment (colour) like laser, but attacks the follicle itself. People that aren't good candidates for laser can still get electrolysis.
"What about all the other techniques and products for hair removal?"
Waxing: In many cases when you stop waxing, within a year, the hair will regrow heavier than it was originally.
Shaving: It can be coordinated with Electrolysis treatments, but we all know it isn't permanent.
Laser: Many clients are disappointed with laser treatments and, over the last few years, there has been a noticed increase in the amount of clients switching or returning to electrolysis for permanent hair removal after receiving several years of laser treatments.
For specific cases, the "thermolysis" method is used, as well as "galvanic or straight electrolysis". However, the most typical method is the "blend" method of electrolysis, which is a combination of the two.
A disposable filament is issued to each client before treatment to ensure protection from any contagious diseases.
Since many factors influence hair growth, you will need to return for several electrolysis visits. The total number of sessions needed to remove hair permanently from a particular area will vary from person to person. Most clients return once a week or every other week, as necessary. However, the unwanted hair will be gone forever once the series of treatments have been completed. Each treatment lasts between 15 minutes and one hour.
