Electrolysis works by passing a small amount of energy (a current) into your hair follicle through a very fine probe. This then produces a chemical reaction that destroys the cells at the base of the hair.
Using the very fine probe, each hair is probed individually and then removed using tweezers. Electrolysis can be used to treat most areas on your face and body, but electrolysis is best suited for treating small, localised areas for hair reduction such as upper lip, chin, eyebrows, midline of your stomach, and your areola. This treatment is suitable for most hair types. Electrolysis can also be used to treat red veins of the face and ingrown hairs.
Electrolysis effectively treats all hair colours, including light blonde and white hairs which are unable to be treated by VPL* Electrolysis promotes lesser, finer hair growth and hair that has been treated by electrolysis rarely (if ever) grows back - because of this it is a highly sought-after procedure for people suffering from ingrown hairs.
Some people find electrolysis more painful than others, with some people comparing the feeling to getting a tattoo or snapping a rubber band against the skin. The feeling is not caused by the insertion of the epilator, but by the application of the electric current which stimulates nerves that are present near the hair. If you are sensitive to pain, then please feel free to talk to us about hair removal and pain management options.
