The Art of Electrolysis

There are many benefits to getting electrolysis instead of laser hair removal treatments. Electrolysis is a method of permanently removing hair from the body or face by destroying the growth center of the hair follicle with heat energy. Hair growth is often caused by hormone levels and heredity. Even temporary methods of hair removal can stimulate unwanted hair growth. Electrolysis treatments are usually needed multiple times before hair is completely removed from an area. You may need to return for weekly visits or every other week as needed before hair is completely removed. Treatments usually last between 15 minutes to an hour at a time. Once all of the treatments are completed, the unwanted hair will be gone forever.

Electrolysis causes minimal discomfort. Modern methods have reduced pain to a mere tingling sensation. There are very few risks associated with electrolysis, only minimal temporary side effects such as temporary red swollen skin.

It is best to visit a professional to receive electrolysis treatments to insure the best outcome and safety. The success of the treatment often depends how it is administered, so at home treatments are not recommended.

After your electrolysis procedure, the area of the skin that has been treated will often be tender and slightly swollen. You will notice a loss of hair in the area soon after treatment begins.
