Frequently asked questions

Electolysis
Throw away that razor, those tweezers, the wax, and the depilatories. Electrolysis is the only safe and permanent way to remove unwanted hair. Areas most commonly treated for hair removal are hairline, eyebrows, upper lip, sides of face, chin, neck, breast and chest, arms, legs, bikini lines, abdomen, back and even underarms. Electrolys requires a series of treatments, some more lengthy than others, depending on the individual and what has been done to the hair before treatment. Results are obtained through a process of elimination. Electrolysis will enable you to wear the fashions you have always wanted to but couldn’t because of embarrassing hair. Many of the most beautiful women in the world owe their smooth, hair free skin to the skill of trained electrologists. Many women spend hours at beauty salons and health clubs, so why not electrolysis?
After reading these answers to your questions about electrolysis, there should be no question at all about starting treatments with electolysis.

Is electrolysis something new? Definitely not! Since 1876, medical journals have recorded successful electrolysis treatments.

How does electrolysis remove hair? A complete description is lengthy and highly technical, but basically the electrologist directs a tiny split-second impulse into the hair root, destroying it instantly so that it will never reproduce another hair. (A split-second impulse is a brief passage of electrical current.)

Where does electrolysis remove hair from? Everywhere, except the inside the nose and ear.

Are needles used? Yes, but they are not the ordinary kind. As professional electrologists, we use an extremely fine, threadlike needle.

Is electrolysis painful?There is slight discomfort to the client. There is no such thing as a totally painless electrolysis.

Is electrolysis really permanent? Yes. Electrolysis is the only permanent way to remove hair. Tweezing, shaving, pumice stone, waxing, and depilatories are all temporary methods and the hair does come back.

If electrolysis is permanent, why does the hair come back after it has been treated? The secondary growth you see will not be the same hair that has been treated. It takes anywhere from three to ten weeks for hair to grow, and sometimes hairs could lay dormant under the skin for six months before ever appearing on the skin. Each time new hair appears, they will be finer and weaker until they are completely destroyed. Your own attempts to remove the hair has actually stimulated growth.

What is the cause of this unwanted hair? Everyone’s body is different. But it is a known fact that hormones play a big part in hair growth. Tremendous hormonal changes take place during puberty, adolescence, pregnancy, childbirth and menopause. Androgen, which is the male hormone also present in womens’ bodies, is the main culprit. A glandular irregularity, usually one of the ovaries or adrenals, cause some women to have slightly elevated levels of androgen. This not only stimulates hair growth, it usually coarsens existing hair. Excessive hair growth can also be traced to hereditary background, certain types of illnesses. Certain types of medications may also be factors.

What should be done about hair that grow in between treatments? Only cutting is advised. Never tweeze or wax, this is only counteracting what your electrologist has done.

How about healing? Healing is generally rapid. Different people have different skin types. Sensitive skin would naturally take a little longer to heal. A temporary redness usually occurs, but will quickly disappear on its own after treatment as directed by your electrologist.

Is electrolysis expensive? As compared with many other beauty treatments the cost is moderate. No electrologist could quote a total price because everyone’s rate of hair growth is different, just as everyone’s rate of cell regeneration is different.
