Electrolysis is the permanent removal of hair from the body using a fine probe to apply current to the base of the hair follicle, causing permanent destruction of the follicle.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is permanent hair removal?
Permanent hair removal involves destroying the root of the hair follicle, which prevents the hair from regrowing. Electrolysis can be used on any hair color or skin color, and the hair can be in any stage of growth. Multiple treatments may be needed.
Is electrolysis permanent?
Yes. Electrolysis is the only method of permanent hair removal approved by the FDA.
How many treatments does it take with electrolysis to finish an area?
Electrolysis is a series of treatments. Many factors determine how many treatments are necessary, such as how often you wax or tweeze, and how much energy is able to be applied to the skin comfortably and safely.
What areas are best for electrolysis?
While some areas may be better suited for laser treatment, areas that need detailed shaping, such as the eyebrows, can only be done with electrolysis.
Electrolysis is effective for large areas, though it takes multiple treatments.
Areas with blonde or gray hair must be treated with electrolysis, as the laser will be ineffective.
Can electrolysis be used on a pregnant woman?
Pregnant women can be treated with electrolysis, providing they have a note from their O.B. Treatment will not be performed on the abdomen, breast, or during the third trimester.
Do men receive electrolysis treatments?
