Marathon Electrolysis: End the Hair Removal Race Once and For All


Are you a busy professional with little time for personal grooming? Are you tired of spending endless hours shaving, waxing, or using hair removal creams, only to see hair grow back in a matter of days? Look no further! The Vertical Wellness Spa has got you covered with our expert marathon electrolysis technique. So sit back, relax, and let us take care of those pesky hairs.


At The Vertical Wellness Spa, we’ve been providing electrolysis permanent hair removal for over 20 years. One of the most common requests we receive from both men and women is for large areas of the body, such as the back, legs, or arms, to be treated. While traditional electrolysis sessions typically last between 15-60 minutes, marathon electrolysis involves longer sessions to tackle these larger areas of hair growth in a single sitting.

What Is Electrolysis?

Electrolysis is a hair removal treatment that involves a fine probe being inserted into hair follicles and then passing an electric charge through the surrounding cells. Electrolysis can benefit both men and women in their quest for smooth skin. By targeting the hair follicle, electrolysis is suited for all types of hair and skin. Unlike other hair removal methods, electrolysis gets rid of thin, thick and coarse hair. Permanent hair removal by electrolysis is the only FDA-approved method of permanent hair removal.

Electrolysis can be the perfect solution for removing stubborn body hair. Regardless of the cause of your unwanted hair growth – heredity, metabolic, or hormonal conditions – electrolysis will permanently remove unwanted hair to reveal a glowing, confident you. 

A professional electrologist inserts a very fine needle (usually thinner than the hair being treated) into the natural opening of the hair follicle alongside the hair shaft. A tiny amount of electrical current is then applied to destroy the hair growth cells. There are three different methods, or modalities, of electrolysis, which vary in their specifics. Medical electrolysis devices can destroy the hair growth cells with chemical energy, heat energy, or both. 

What is A Marathon Electrolysis Session?

Marathon electrolysis, otherwise known as large volume electrolysis, involves longer, more intensive sessions of electrolysis hair removal, typically lasting between 2-6 hours. This allows for large areas of the body to be treated in a single session, rather than multiple sessions spread out over several weeks or months. While marathon electrolysis can be more time-consuming and intensive than traditional electrolysis sessions, it can also provide faster, more effective results for those looking to permanently remove large areas of hair.

Why Choose Marathon Electrolysis?

Rather than having multiple appointments spread over a period of months, marathon electrolysis allows you to achieve permanent hair removal in a longer session. This can be a major time-saver, especially for areas with dense hair growth such as the back or legs.

Here are some of the body parts that are good candidates for marathon electrolysis or large volume electrolysis:

  • Back
  • Chest
  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Bikini area
  • Full face
  • Neck
  • Shoulders

As a leading permanent hair removal studio in Los Angeles, we are pleased to offer large volume hair removal sessions to Los Angelenos as well as out-of-town clients. A marathon session is a perfect way to maximize your visit to Los Angeles, particularly if you are short on time. 

If you have pursued laser therapy in the past and are dissatisfied with the results, this may be a good time to switch to electrolysis. Many of our clients come to our electrolysis Los Angeles studio after trying laser hair removal, only to see the hair grow back. At The Vertical Wellness Spa, the new home of Electrolysis by Alison, we are happy to accept new clients. However, we want to make sure that you get the best possible experience. It may be necessary to consult with a dermatologist before beginning your electrolysis treatment. A skin specialist can ascertain whether your skin is ready for electrolysis treatment after the effects of laser treatment. Especially when considering the skin on your face, it is always better to be cautious. When your skin is ready, we will be happy to help you achieve permanent hair removal on your face.
