Electrolysis for Teens
How beneficial is electrolysis for teens? Teenagers can struggle with all kinds of body image issues. It is a difficult time, between problems with body odor, greasy skin and hair, awkward proportions and growth spurts, and body hair growing in. While it is always best for a young person to develop their self-confidence from within, it can be a definite boost to have outside help. At Electrolysis by Alison, we are fully trained and equipped to handle the sensitive matter of electrolysis for teens.
What Causes Unwanted Hair Growth?
Electrolysis for Facial Hair Removal
When you’re coming into your adult face and under the gaze of so many people– peers, family members, even strangers– it can be a terrible blow to your self-esteem to have to contend with unwanted facial hair coming in. Dark facial hair on the lip, chin, or elsewhere on the face can draw attention away from other features and undermine your overall appearance. Even finer facial hair can be problematic in large amounts. Luckily, electrolysis is perfect for facial hair removal.
Can Teens Get Electrolysis?
Did you know that women with facial hair spend an average of 104 minutes a week managing it? That’s over five times as long as the average man, who spends 20 minutes a week shaving. Doesn’t seem fair, does it? Think about how much time that is over a year: 104 minutes a week adds up to over 90 hours, or nearly 4 days. Now imagine what you could do with those 90 hours if they were given to you to do literally anything else. What would you achieve?
You don’t have to simply imagine. Electrolysis is a permanent solution to the problem of body and facial hair. After a handful of short treatments, you can say goodbye to the problem of facial hair for the rest of your life. Other depilatory treatments may claim to keep hair away for good, but electrolysis is the only hair removal treatment whose claim of permanency is supported by the FDA. Teens are not only able to get electrolysis, teens are the demographic for which it makes the most economic sense to get electrolysis, since they will get greater value out of the benefits of permanent hair removal. If you are the parent of a teen, consider the dividends of making this long-term investment in their future happiness.
Permanent Hair Removal for Teens
Especially for teenagers, who have things like acne to worry about on their faces, we don’t recommend other hair removal options like wax or tweezing facial hair. Besides the pain and redness they cause, broken skin and bleeding invites skin infections that teens are especially susceptible to. Plucking hairs can cause the hair follicle to regrow a hair that is coarser and darker, making it even more visible. This technique also increases the likelihood of painful and unsightly ingrown hairs. Shaving is less hazardous, but requires constant maintenance in order for stubble not to reemerge. Depilatory creams can chemically coax out stubborn facial hair, but risk irritation and prolonged issues with skin pigmentation. Laser therapy is expensive and limited in its effectiveness. Most laser machines are configured primarily for light-skinned people, and will struggle to work well on darker skin tones. This is, understandably, not very helpful to many women who want laser hair remova, as unwanted facial hair is a problem for a greater proportion of dark-skinned women. Perhaps worst of all, after the discomfort and expense of laser therapy, it doesn’t actually permanently disable the follicle, only removing the current hair growing from it. Only electrolysis, with its precise method of targeting every individual hair follicle currently growing dark hair, is thorough enough to permanently remove unwanted facial or body hair from the desired area.
How Long Does It Take for Teens to Overcome Unwanted Hair with Electrolysis?
Depending on the size of the area, a typical electrolysis session can take between 15 and 60 minutes. For most facial work, sessions will trend shorter. Bear in mind that at Electrolysis by Alison, Alison’s expert technique cuts this amount of time down to between 10 and 20 minutes. Regardless of where you go, it will be necessary to book at least one follow-up session in order to zap inactive follicles that the initial session cannot target.
