Advantages of Electrolysis For Permanent Hair Removal

When looking for permanent hair removal in the Mid-Wilshire area, you may be considering the laser method of hair removal. Although the procedure is often promoted as a form of “permanent” hair removal, laser treatment only reduces the number of unwanted hairs in a given area.

Electrolysis and laser hair removal are both popular methods of permanent hair reduction, but they work in different ways and have their own unique advantages. One major advantage of electrolysis is that it can be used on all skin and hair types. According to the Mayo Clinic, laser hair removal tends to work best in people with light skin tones and darker hair. Also, for best results, the American Association of Dermatology (AAD) recommends that a board-certified dermatologist ought to perform the procedure.
Additionally, electrolysis is a more targeted method of hair removal, as it destroys each hair follicle individually using a small electric current, which can result in more precise and effective hair removal. In contrast, laser hair removal targets multiple hair follicles at once using a broad beam of light, which can result in some hair being missed. Finally, electrolysis can be performed on any part of the body, whereas laser hair removal is not recommended for use on certain areas, such as the eyebrows. 

If you have pursued laser therapy in the past and are dissatisfied with the results, you may want 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.

Electrolysis For Unwanted Hair Everywhere

  • Hormonal imbalances: Changes in hormone levels can cause hair growth in areas where hair is not typically found, such as the face or chest. Hormonal imbalances can be caused by conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or menopause.
  • Genetics: Some people are simply more prone to excessive hair growth due to their genetic makeup. For example, individuals of Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, or South Asian descent may have more body hair than those of other ethnicities.
  • Medications: Certain medications, such as anabolic steroids or hormonal birth control, can stimulate hair growth.
  • Age: As we age, our hormone levels fluctuate, which can cause changes in hair growth patterns. It is not uncommon for hair to become thicker or coarser as we get older.
  • Health conditions: Some medical conditions, such as tumors or adrenal gland disorders, can cause excess hair growth.
  • Stress: High levels of stress can affect hormone levels, which can lead to increased hair growth.

Fortunately, whatever the reasons for your unwanted hair growth, electrolysis is a safe and effective option for its removal. Electrolysis works on all skin tones and all body parts, including:

  • Face (including upper lip, chin, and cheeks)
  • Underarms
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Bikini area 
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Stomach
