Electrolysis

Electrolysis is the only medically approved form of permanent hair removal. Electrolysis has the longest known track record together with the most effective results for hair removal.

Dr Charles Michel first used it successfully in 1875 to remove ingrown eyelashes. He discovered that once the follicle had been treated with electrolysis the hair was permanently destroyed.

Since then electrolysis has been refined and perfected into the modern methods used today around the world.

There are 3 main methods of electrolysis called galvanic, thermolysis (diathermy) and blend. All 3 methods are known to permenatly remove hair.

Electrolysis is performed by inserting a very fine, flexible needle into the follicle of the hair. Your therapist then apply a tiny amount of current and destroys the lower part of the follicle, which stops any more hairs growing from that particular follicle. The destruction is carried out by heat (thermolysis), a chemical reaction (galvanic) or both blended together (blend).

It's vitally important to get the amount of destruction just right so as not to damage the surrounding skin at the same time as correctly treating the follicle.

Since everyone has a different density of hair it is not possible to put a figure on the number of treatments you'll need. You will need to have regular appointments over a long period of time. Not all our hair is growing at the same time, and it can be quite a shock to find that those 3 or 4 hairs on your chin are actually 20 hairs. On top of this your hair thickness, skin sensitivity and other factors affect how fast each hair can be treated. However the appointment time can be as little as 10 minutes or as much as 1 hour or more depending on how large an area needs to be treated.

You will need to have a consultation first before proceeding with the treatment so the therapist can find out about your medical background. The consultaion is also a good time to ask any questions if you have any.
