Electrolysis - For more permanent hair removal
Electrolysis is still the only proven method to permanently remove unwanted hair.
How does electrolysis work?
Electrolysis involves inserting a metal probe (needle) into the base of the hair follicle. Heat is then discharged through the probe to cauterise the follicle, hopefully preventing re-growth. Each hair is treated individually and then removed using tweezers. Beware of miracle hair removal methods which claim their electrical tweezers grasp the hair and kill the root of the hair, this is not possible as hair cannot conduct an electrical current.
Will my hairs re-grow?
Electrolysis is an effective process, but unwanted hairs do not go from being thick to disappearing. It is very normal for hair to come back a few times and become finer each time until it disappears altogether.
What areas of the body can I have treated?
Unwanted hair can be removed from nearly all areas of the body. The most common areas are the upper lip, chin and throat. However areas such as the cheeks, sideburn area, neck, breasts and stomach can also be treated. Hairs in a mole can be treated as long as you have taken advice from a doctor to check that they can be treated safely.
Can I have Electrolysis if I am pregnant?
During pregnancy excessive hair growth can occur due to hormonal changes in the body. Once your baby is born and the hormone levels return to normal the hair growth usually reverts to its normal condition. It is usually advisable not to treat the hair growth until several months after the birth to allow your body to return to normal. If the hairs do not revert you can then treat them with electrolysis.
How do I prepare for a treatment?
Once you have decided to have electrolysis you must stop any short term method of hair removal for about a week before your first treatment.
Is electrolysis painful?
Most people experience a sensation equivalent to hairs being plucked out. This is uncomfortable but most do not consider this to be unbearable. It is very difficult to minimise this sensation as each hair is surrounded in the follicle by nerve endings.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments required varies from person to person. A treatment session can take from as little as 15 minutes up to an hour depending on the area you are having treated. Things such as hair growth cycles, the amount of hair being treated, previous methods of hair removal, heredity factors, hormone imbalance, medication and stress can effect the amount of treatments you will require. If you follow the advice of your therapist you will usually accomplish your goals within about one year.
Are there any side effects?
Electrolysis has been practised since 1875 and is statistically a very safe procedure to permanently remove hair. The only known side effects are due to allergic reactions to the metal probe. However, you may notice some slight redness, swelling, or minor scabbing of the skin, which is only temporary.
If you are taking medication we advise that you check with your doctor to check that it is safe to have electrolysis.
