Electrolysis Hair Removal Treatment

Electrolysis is currently the only form of permanent hair removal treatment recognized by the FDA, invented in 1875 and still predominantly used today.

The process of electrolysis for hair removal involves the use of a probe which sends an electric current directly to the root of the hair to destroy the hair cell. At first the hair will get weaker, in time it will become thinner and eventually it will stop growing.

How to Prepare for Electrolysis Hair Removal

Electrolysis is a form of permanent hair removal which has been proven to show lasting results for individuals who undergo the treatment. To make sure you are prepared for electrolysis hair removal treatment, follow the following steps for the best possible results:

  • Ask the certified electrolysis technician to do a test run before you undergo a full electrolysis procedure to ensure you do not have an allergic reaction.
  • Avoid temporary hair removal techniques such as waxing, plucking or shaving for at least 1 to 2 weeks prior to receiving electrolysis.
  • If you are receiving electrolysis on a sensitive area, take a pain reliever such as Ibuprofen or Tylenol to ease the discomfort.

Hair Removal With Electrolysis

The total number of treatments and the average time spent during the session vary with each client depending on the area being treated. For the best outcome, be sure to get your hair treated when it is short and weak. It is always important to remember that the longer it grows, the stronger it gets.
