Hair Removal Services For Women
There are many choices for hair removal in the city of Los Angeles. Many women dream of being hair free, but with so many options it can be difficult to make the best choice. Hair removal creams, laser hair removal, and electrolysis: all seem to have their advantages. However, if you want actual long-term hair removal that will destroy the hair-growing functionality of your follicles, there is only one choice. Electrolysis is the only depilatory method recognized by the FDA as permanent.

PCOS Hormonal Hair
Alison’s specialty is working with women with PCOS. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome can cause excessive hair growth. Facial hair can rapidly change from the soft, fair vellus hairs that most women and children exhibit. They can become the coarse, thick, pigmented terminal hairs that the majority of men have on their faces.
Treatment of hirsutism of this nature is tricky. Some people and their doctors approach it by trying to correct a perceived hormonal imbalance. Birth control pills can be used to this effect. It’s true that if androgen levels are higher that women can experience unwanted hair growth. However, trying to regulate hormone levels can lead to many side effects. In the interim, there remains the issue of the hair that is present.

Electrolysis Hair Removal Benefits
Why People Choose Electrolysis over Laser & Waxing.
Does Electrolysis Work
No other hair-removal solution can claim the universal acceptability and success offered by electrolysis treatments. Electrolysis safely and permanently removes all types of hair from all skin tones.
Electrolysis permanently destroys the growth cells of the hair follicle, preventing individual hairs from ever growing back. Treatment can be applied to most facial and body parts including eyebrows, chin, upper and lower lip, jaw line, sides of the face, breasts, underarms, abdomen, bikini area, fingers and toes, legs and back.
Most other methods focus on immediate, but temporary, hair removal – visible hair, or hair that’s inside the follicle but hasn’t yet emerged. None of them deliver permanent elimination of unwanted hair.
PCOS and Unwanted Hair
There are many ways that women handle terminal hair growth caused by PCOS. Common hair removal methods such as waxing, threading, and shaving are often the first methods used. Electrolysis by Alison advocates against using waxing and threading to handle terminal hair growth. The way that these methods work is to pull out the hair from the follicle. Often, what happens is that the hair snaps and the root remains in the hair follicle. Especially for curly or kinky hair, this can lead to ingrown hairs. The hair regrows incorrectly and gets embedded under the skin, causing inflammation.
Laser hair removal is another, more dramatic method which is commonly used. Laser therapy promises a more scientific approach, with concentrated heat and light disabling all the follicles in an area of skin. In theory, it promises a long-term solution to the issue of body hair or facial hair. However, in practice, this does not always go according to plan. Laser therapy works most effectively on skin and hair combinations that include a substantial contrast. Typically, this requires fair skin and dark hair. Other combinations, such as fair skin and hair, or dark skin and dark hair, often result in complications and side effects. Burns can result. Worse, even if the contrast lines up, the trauma of the treatment to the skin can often have the opposite to the desired effect. Terminal hair follicles can be activated by the treatment. It is for this reason that the Food and Drug Administration denied laser hair removal the status of ‘permanent hair removal’ method. It has been discovered that sometimes follicles thought rendered inert by laser hair removal in fact only temporarily affected them. Within two years, treated areas can begin generating terminal hair again.
Successfully Treating Hirsutism and PCOS
If you are seeking a truly permanent method of hair removal, your options are limited. Electrolysis is the only hair removal technique which has been recognized as permanent by the FDA. Electrolysis focuses on neutralizing each terminal hair follicle, one by one. The speed with which this procedure can be done depends on the ability of the practitioner. Alison has been an electrologist for over 15 years and has perfected her one-handed technique to make her treatments much more comfortable and quick. A small area like the upper lip or chin can take as little as 15 minutes per session to treat.
