What It Takes to Be a Leading Electrologist in Los Angeles

As a licensed electrologist, Los Angeles demands very high standards compared to other parts of the country. Electrolysis is a complicated procedure that combines the science of a complicated medical procedure with the art of beautification and body modification. California is one of the most rigorous states when it comes to demanding expertise from its electrologists. As a result it has, in many respects, set the golden standard for what it means to be an expert electrologist. In this city, Electrolysis by Alison is riding high, celebrating over 18 years of success offering state of the art permanent hair removal treatment for women and men.


Best Electrolysis in Los Angeles

To be a thermolysis electrologist, Los Angeles practitioners agree, you have to be immensely skilled, precise, and fast. After all, of the three general types of electrolysis, thermolysis requires the highest level of skill— and rewards that skill with superior results. With a gifted electrologist in control, excellent results can be achieved. Alison has perfected her one-handed technique over the course of her career, removing hair efficiently from large areas with a minimum of discomfort.


Equipment for an Electrologist Los Angeles Trusts

In order to perform as a top electrologist, Los Angeles practitioners strive to have the best and most advanced equipment. The Apilus is widely regarded as the number one electrolysis machine brand, highly regarded by the savvy client and electrologist in Los Angeles and beyond. It’s also key to use insulated probes for the process. There are two advantages of insulated probes. First, they focus energy at the base of the unwanted hair follicle, meaning that the electrologist can reduce the intensity and duration of the current, improving the client’s comfort during the procedure. Second, the insulation shields the surface of the client’s skin from the current, which significantly reduces the side effects of electrolysis. Finally for equipment, sterilized tweezers are most effective at removing electrolysed hair without potential for infection.


Aftercare for an Electrologist Los Angeles Is Comfortable With

When providing aftercare, Alison pays special attention to the comfort of her client. Applying ice and aloe vera can do a lot to reduce swelling and redness. Other options include alcohol pads, to ensure the area is fully disinfected. More than one electrologist Los Angeles knows uses neosporin, calendula ointment, or hydrocortisone cream. The best aftercare will significantly reduce the discomfort that can occur after electrolysis. Skin care makes all the difference.


West LA’s Best Electrolysis Hair Removal

To be the best electrologist on Los Angeles’ Westside, you have to offer something a cut above the others. An electrologist’s technique can be what sets them apart. Many of the most accomplished electrologists use a one-handed technique that is faster while retaining the precision and effectiveness of the two-handed technique. Identifying the right frequencies for the most effective follicle treatment that doesn’t damage the skin is also a knack that only comes with experience. When skilfully applied, electrolysis outstrips laser hair removal on every front.

  • Fewer side effects: laser therapy to remove hair has a scattershot approach, zapping an area of skin at a frequency to kill hair (but not follicles). There is often skin damage, which can be more severe the less contrast there is between the recipient’s skin color and hair color.
  • Works for everyone: unless laser hair removal services have the most expensive and up-to-date laser technology (which will cost you extra) their devices won’t work on men and women whose skin tone and hair color don’t have a strong contrast. Dark-skinned people with dark body hair, and light-skinned people with fair body hair should definitely choose electrolysis over laser hair removal treatments.
  • Works everywhere: laser hair removal cannot be used on or near the eyes. Due to the greater sensitivity of the skin on your face, it is likelier that side effects will occur from laser treatment on (for example) your upper lip or chin. We recommend electrolysis for these sensitive areas.
  • Works forever: laser treatment knocks out body hair follicles, but it does not entirely disable them. They can repair themselves over time. It may take months or years, but they will eventually begin to regrow hair again. As a result of the trauma they have undergone, they are likelier to regrow the thick, dark, coarse terminal hairs you were trying to get rid of originally– even the follicles that were originally producing light, unobtrusive vellus hairs but got caught in the treated area. In contrast, electrolysis targets one offending follicle at a time, and permanently disables them. The FDA recognizes that electrolysis is the only permanent method of hair removal.
