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.
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.
