Does Electrolysis work and what is it?
Answer: Yes! Electrolysis is the only method of removing hair permanently. The process was discovered in 1875 by an ophthalmologist, Dr. Charles Michele to remove ingrown eyelash hairs. Since then electrolysis has become very popular on many areas of the body.
Procedures have been perfected and the technology is highly sophisticated. The modality that we use is Thermolysis. It uses RF energy to damage hair producing cells in the lower follicle region. Without these cells, hair cannot grow. Electrolysis is very effective in removing unwanted hair forever.
Is the treatment uncomfortable?
Answer: Discomfort is relative to each individual, but most clients tolerate it very well. Sensitivity varies on different areas of the body. The high precision circuitry and quick energy deliveries of our equipment allow for adjustments that accommodate treatments to each client’s level of sensitivity.
How long will it take before all the hair is gone permanently?
Answer: Electrolysis requires a series of treatments, sessions vary from 10 minutes to an hour. A schedule will be tailored to meet your needs, determined by the cause of the hair growth, the amount and coarseness of the hair, growth cycles and the sensitivity of the client’s skin.
Why electrolysis rather than other methods?
Answer: Electrolysis is the only PROVEN method to removing hair permanently. Shaving, waxing, tweezing, threading, laser, and the use of depilatories are all less than permanent.
Is electrolysis safe?
Answer: Yes, electrolysis has been used safely and effectively for over 135 years. The Department of Health and Human Services has approved electrolysis and recognizes it as the only proven method of permanent hair removal.
What causes excessive hair growth?
Answer: Unwanted hair may be the result of normal biological changes such as puberty, pregnancy, or menopause. Also, malfunctions of the endocrine system often cause glandular or hormonal imbalances, which may result in increased hair growth. Heredity is another key factor, as are reactions to certain medications, normal aging process, diseases, obesity and previous temporary hair removal methods. Even simple stress may cause the adrenal glands to set off a hormonal reaction that causes increased hair growth.
What areas are commonly treated?
Answer: The most requested area to be treated is facial hair, specifically the removal of hair on the upper or lower lip, chin, cheeks, neck, eyebrows, and ears. All areas of the body can be treated.
What does electrolysis cost?
Answer: My fees are very economical. I charge $1.50 per minute with a $15.00 minimum charge.
