WHAT IS ELECTROLYSIS?
PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL
The science of hair removal began in 1875 when Dr Charles Michael developed a hair removal technique called electrolysis, which is still widely used today. The art of electrolysis uses a fine sterile probe which is inserted into the hair follicle. Then, a small amount of electrical energy is applied, destroying the hair growth tissue. By this method. the regeneration of the hair is eliminated; it will not grow back!
When skillfully done, there is only a very little redness for a short period of time with no permanent marks. A series of treatments is necessary to accomplish permanent results. The number of treatments needed varies from person to person and depends upon factors such as the use of previous temporary hair removal methods, heredity, hormone function, hair growth cycles, coarseness of the hair, medication and stress.
Electrolysis is the only permanent hair removal process that works on all skin and hair types, including people with white, grey, red, and blonde hair in the area to be treated. Those people with darker skin and ethnic backgrounds are also treatable with electrolysis.
Most states require a license and continuing education. We are trained using state of the art equipment and respect the highest standard of sterilization procedures. Electrolysis is definitely a tried and true option for those who want guaranteed permanent hair removal.
The FDA has only approved electrolysis for permanent hair removal.
