What is Electrolysis?

Electrolysis is permanent hair removal regardless of cause – heredity, metabolic or hormonal condition. Electrolysis will permanently remove unwanted hair.

How does electrolysis work ?

A disposable sterile probe (the same diameter as the hair) is inserted into the hair follicle which is a natural opening in the skin. A small amount of energy is then released into the base of the hair, cutting the blood supply to stop new hair from growing.

The Permanent hair removal is achieved by either heat, chemical reaction or a blend of both.

It is normal to see redness and mild swelling after your electrolysis treatment. In most individuals, this will disappear within few hours. Post treatment instructions will be provided.

Based on a personal and confidential consultation, your electrologist will design a treatment plan that addresses your specific hair removal needs

Useful Tips

Hair Length

Please make sure your hair length is 1/16 of an inch in length so that it can be treated.

Drink Water

For a more efficient treatment drink lots of water before and the day of your appointment. Fully hydrated follicles will ensure amore effective treatment because electrolysis works by using existing water content in the follicle.

Exfolliation

Gently exfoliating your skin before treatment opens up the follicles and lets the unwanted hair slide out more easily.

Do not pick

Light scabbing is a natural part of healing process. If scabs appear, allow them to fall off naturally. Picking on scabs could cause scarring. Scabs are lymph fluid that has drained from the treated hair follicle and has dried up at the surface.

Avoid Retinoids

Do not use any topical retinoid for at least one week prior to your electrolysis treatment. It could result in permanent pigment and scarring.

Avoid Caffine

Avoid caffine few hours before appointment. This could make you more sensitive to the treatment.

Avoid Sun

Avoid sun exposure for 48 hours prior to your treatment. Exposure to the sun will dilate your blood vessels and will lengthen your recovery time.
