Frequently Asked Questions permanent hair removal


What is Electrolysis? 

Electrolysis is the removal of unwanted hair through the means of a probe inserted into the follicle. There are three different methods (modalities) used to accomplish this: 

Short Wave:
A high frequency radio energy, which sets up a rapid oscillation or vibration in the cells of the follicle producing heat. Using this method, the hair tissue is then cauterized.
The Galvanic Method uses direct current to produce sodium hydroxide in the follicle, which then chemically acts to annihilate the hair tissue.
The Blend Method combines both the Short Wave and Galvanic modalities and, with the oscillation of the high frequency radio energy, produces heated sodium hydroxide to destroy the hair tissue. 

Does Electrolysis Hurt? 

One of the greatest fears of someone considering this process is that there is pain involved. Although there may be some discomfort, this varies with the individual undergoing the treatment. 

Who Should Use Electrolysis? 

Electrolysis is a safe, permanent process of hair removal that can be applied to anyone. Men and Women can both benefit... If you feel that unwanted hair is in any way a nuisance or an embarrassment, then electrolysis definitely for you!

Why Should I Choose Electrolysis Over Other Types of Hair Removal? 

Although there are many reasons to choose electrolysis over other methods, such as tweezing, shaving or waxing, there is one reason which stands above all the others: PERMANENT! By using the electrolysis method, you will see that unwanted hair will be removed safely, and permanently. 

Why Do I Have Excess Hair? 

There are many causes of excessive hair growth stemming from puberty to normal system changes. (Pregnancy and menopause can also create problematic areas on women). Other reasons for this condition can be medication, stress, systemic, skin irritations and even genetic. These are just a few of the causes, and you will find that electrolysis is the most effective cure. 


How many treatments are required?

The number of treatments necessary varies with each client. Factors such as hair growth cycles, the quantity and structure of hair presented, previous use of temporary hair removal methods, heredity, hormone function, and certain medication influence the treatment program for each individual.  

No other hair removal solution can claim such universal acceptability and success. It is important to follow the recommended treatment plan to achieve optimum results.

Are all hairs eliminated in one treatment or is regrowth to be expected?

Hairs cannot be eliminated with one treatment; thus, breaking down the hair growth cells require additional treatments. Based on a personal and confidential consultation, I will design a treatment plan that addresses your specific hair removal needs.
