Types of Body
Hair Removal

There are many types of body hair removal available for men and women. Whether your body hair is standard for you or something that is presenting because of a health problem, it’s your right to try and change it if it bothers you. There are different ways to go about it, some of which are more effective than others.


Unwanted hair

If you have unwanted hair on various parts of your body, you can take many steps to address it. However, electrolysis is to date the only answer to removing unwanted hair permanently. For several body parts, electrolysis is particularly effective in permanently removing hair.

Facial hair removal is very common for people of all genders with unwanted hair. Whether it’s on their upper or lower lip, chin area, forehead, ears, or nose, it can sap confidence and undermine self-image. Electrolysis is highly effective for eyebrow shaping and hairline shaping. Hair on the sideburns, throat, and neck areas can also be permanently removed with electrolysis.

Alternatively, if you want to feel ready for summer, you can embark on electrolysis treatments for bikini hair removal, underarms, upper arms, forearms, chest, legs, hands, feet, and nipples.

Hair Types Catered To

Some methods of hair removal struggle with certain hair colors, types, and textures. Laser treatment can often find it hard to work with fair hair on fair skin, or dark hair on darker skin. Tweezing and threading can snap hairs subdermally, which often creates problems. Particularly for kinky hair, the danger is that the hair will become ingrown.

Electrolysis is the safest, most effective choice for dealing with hair of all types. No more embarrassment caused by unwanted hair growth, razor burn, ingrown hairs, allergic reactions to depilatory creams, or other side effects.

PCOS and Hormonal Imbalances

There are many possible complications and symptoms of PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome). Irregular periods, increased male hormone levels, and an increased risk of type 2 diabetes. Unfortunately, these hormone levels can lead to acne. The skin produces more sebum (skin oil) which can plug pores and lead to inflammation.

Hormones can also be responsible for male pattern baldness in women, and stimulating inactive hair follicles to actively produce terminal hairs. Terminal hairs are thick, pigmented hairs such as might typically be found in the pubic region or under the arms. PCOS can catalyse hair growing on the face, chest, and neck, among other places.

The temptation may arise to tweeze or wax these areas. This is a bad idea. The kind of trauma that tweezing, threading, and waxing causes to the follicle can actually stimulate more terminal hair growth in the area. The best approach to dealing with hair growth caused by hormonal fluctuation is electrolysis. Putting the affected follicles out of action permanently ensures that you won’t need to repeatedly shave the area. No ongoing effects or expenses. Just smooth, clear skin.

Menopausal Hair Growth

A woman’s face generally features hair throughout her lifetime. However, it’s normally easy to miss: it’s vellus hair, the soft, short, downy hair that children also have. Perimenopause and menopause change things in this regard. The diminishing output of oestrogen that affects menstrual periods also has a knock-on effect. The amount of testosterone produced by a woman’s body is not affected by menopause, which means that its presence can cause unusual hair growth.

Terminal hair growth on the face is a common consequence of menopause: it’s called hypertrichosis. As with hair growth caused by PCOS, the best approach and only permanent solution is electrolysis. Shaving is a sensible way of managing the growth in the short term, while threading, tweezing, and waxing are prone to creating complications. Neutralizing the hair follicle’s ability to regrow hair, as with electrolysis, means that the problem is solved permanently.


Electrolysis by Alison

Electrolysis is the only form of hair removal recognized by the FDA as permanent. Alison specializes in helping women with PCOS and other hormonal imbalances. Other methods of body and facial hair removal can be ineffective or worse, counterproductive. Laser hair removal sometimes serves to stimulate increased hair regrowth. Without either addressing the hormonal imbalance or removing the follicles’ ability to grow hair, the problem won’t go away. Thanks to Electrolysis by Alison, you can say goodbye to your unwanted body or facial hair forever. Put down that razor. Toss away that pack of wax strips. Enjoy a life of smooth hairless skin.
