Electrolysis for Permanent Hair Removal
Electrolysis is a proven method of permanent hair removal. It’s safe, reliable and gentle.
How does it work?
Electrolysis permanently destroys each hair follicle individually with a very fine, disposable, sterile needle. The hair follicle can no longer reproduce, thus eradicating hair growth on completion of a course of treatments.
A treatment plan will be tailored especially for you and the area to be treated.
A course of treatments is recommended to achieve a lasting effect.
A CONSULTATION WILL BE INCLUDED IN THE FIRST TREATMENT. IF THE TREATMENT IS NOT POSSIBLE DUE TO A CONTRAINDICATION THERE WILL BE NO CHARGE
WHICH AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH ELECTROLYSIS?
Virtually any area, apart from the inside of the nose and inner ear (the rim of the ear can be safely treated).
Common areas for woman are facial areas, (top lip, chin, neck, cheeks, eyebrows) breasts, abdomen, underarms, bikini line, legs, fingers and toes.
Common areas for men are the upper arms, around the ears, top of the nose, eyebrows, top of the back, cheeks above the line of the beard, around the edges of the beard and any areas where ingrown hairs are causing problems.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
The number of treatments required will vary from person to person as each client will have a different density of hair growth (e.g. there may be between 50 hairs and 500 hairs packed into a small area of skin tissue, whilst some clients will have less hair which is spaced out). This means that each treatment course will vary, and therefore no actual figure can be put on the number of treatments required, but you will quickly feel and see a difference giving you the confidence to continue with your treatment course. You will need to have regular appointments over a period of time (at least a year if not more) for most areas. Not all our hair is growing at the same time, and it can be quite a shock to find that those 3 or 4 hairs on your chin could actually be 30 or more hairs ‘taking turns’ to grow! On top of this hair thickness, skin sensitivity, dryness and other factors affect how quickly each hair can be eliminated. Appointment times can vary from as little as 10 minutes to as much as several hours, depending on how large an area needs to be treated.
