About Electrolysis

Electrolysis Process
Electrolysis is a cosmetic treatment for permanently removing hair from most areas of the face and body.   Eyebrows, face, underarms, breasts, abdomen, back and legs can be treated with electrolysis.

Typically, a series of electrolysis sessions is required to completely eliminate unwanted hair from an area of skin.  After each session the hair that regrows will be thinner and finer as the hair follicles ability to produce hair is gradually diminished after successive treatments until the hair growth tissue is permanently eliminated.  The treatment provided to you will be tailored to suit your skin type, hair, and pain threshold.

Some discomfort may be experienced during the process, but most  modern electrolysis methods have reduced the discomfort to a mere tingling.  Generally there are no permanent side effects, although temporary reddening of the skin can sometimes occur after a treatment session.  Your treatment provider can advise you on how to be comfortable and best protect your skin between treatment sessions.

The number of sessions required to completely and permanently remove unwanted hair from an area of the face or body will vary from person to person.  Typically you will find the period between treatment sessions is between one and two weeks, with each treatment lasting between fifteen minutes to one hour.  Once the series of treatments is complete, the unwanted here will be gone forever.

How Does it Work?

Electrolysis works to permanently destroy a hair follicle's ability to produce hair by precisely delivering a shot of electricity to the hair growth centre of each follicle using a very fine sterile probe.  Proper insertion of the probe into the follicle does not puncture the skin.  The hair is then removed with tweezers.

Electrolysis Aftercare
For the first two days after treatment it is important to protect the treated areas and minimise any temporary discomfort you may feel.  Because the treated hair follicles will be open immediately after treatment, they will be more sensitive to infection and so recommended self care includes gently keeping the area clean, avoiding public pools and saunas, and postponing gymwork or sport that may cause the area to become irritated or infected.  Do not apply deodorants, lotions, or powders to the treated areas unless they have been recommended by your treatment provider.  For more advice on electrolysis aftercare please look at the Electrolysis - Post Treatment Care page.
