What is Electrolysis?

Everything you need to know.

Essentially, electrolysis works by disrupting all hair growth. The process works by inserting a fine probe into the skin. It uses shortwave radio or direct current in hair follicles to stop new hair from growing. This procedure damages your hair follicles to prevent growth and causes existing hairs to fall out.

There are three types of electrolysis: galvanic (which chemically dissolves the follicle), thermolysis (which uses localized heat), and blend (which utilizes both methods). Electrolysis can yield permanent results—but it's important to note that it takes time. Hair grows in different stages: growing, resting and shedding. Because all of the hair isn't on the same stage at any given time, multiple sessions will be required.

Does it hurt?

Electrolysis should not be painful and most won't feel nothing more than either a prickly sensation or a hot elastic band flicking against the skin.

Is it suitable for me?

Electrolysis can be used on all skin and hair types making it a great option for people with grey, white, blonde and red hair wanting permanent hair reduction. People with sparser and light hair will benefit from electrolysis, while laser is recommended on dark, dense areas of hair.  

How many sessions will I need?

The number of treatments required varies with each client.  Those clients that adhere to the recommended treatment schedule usually accomplish their hair removal goals between 12 to 18 months. Some improvement should be observed within several months after beginning treatment, provided the client adheres to the recommended treatment schedule. Factors such as hair growth cycles, the quantity and structure of hair, previous use of temporary hair removal methods, heredity, hormone function, normal physiologic changes, certain medications and stress may influence the treatment program.

It is very important to adhere to the recommended treatment program set up by your Electrologist. Those who do so will achieve permanent results in the shortest time frame
