Hair growth is natural, but some people may grow more hair than others due to age, hormonal imbalance or other factors. From shaving to plucking, you can find several hair removal methods designed to help you remove unwanted hair. Unfortunately, these methods are only temporary.
Electrolysis may be the right solution for you. It is a cosmetic procedure developed more than 100 years ago to treat people with ingrown eyelashes. However, electrolysis doesn’t just remove the hair – it destroys the hair follicle that produces the hair. A hair follicle destroyed by electrolysis will never produce a hair again.
During electrolysis, a tiny needle is inserted into the skin. The needle is placed deep into an individual hair follicle that holds one hair. Then, a low-level electrical energy pulse is sent into the follicle to destroy it. The existing hair falls out and the process is repeated hair by hair. Clients may need to return for treatment between 10 and 25 times to destroy all unwanted hair. There is no risk of burning with electrolysis, as light isn’t used in the process. However, in some cases, clients may experience pain during treatment. To combat this side-effect, our technician might apply a numbing cream to the skin prior to treatment. Scarring and temporary inflammation can also occur, though it’s unlikely.
