What is Electrolysis?
Invented in 1875, Electrolysis is the longest established method of permanent hair removal. Electrolysis is a course of treatment and not a miracle cure. It ultimately leads to permanent removal of unwanted hair growth. The success of the treatment depends on the client’s co-operation with a highly skilled therapist to commit to regular treatments until treatment is no longer necessary. Electrolysis is not restricted by hair and skin colours but can be adapted for each client’s individual need.
How does Electrolysis work?
It works by passing a tiny pre-packed sterilised needle into the opening of the hair follicle, then discharging a small amount of high frequency energy into the hair follicle, where it creates friction within the tissues. This generates a mild thermal heat which then destroys the matrix cells that produce the hair at the base of the follicle, through either cauterisation or coagulation, thus destroying or weakening hair growth depending on the stage of the hair cycle.
Electrolysis treatment can be adapted to suit every client by changing either the modality, current intensity , application time, needle type ,duration of treatment or frequency of treatment.
A full consultation is carried out with every client to establish their suitability to treatment and any medical restrictions prior to any treatment being carried out. Following treatment, post-treatment care and advice is given both verbally and in a written format to maintain hygiene and prevent any adverse reactions resulting.
Electrolysis can be used almost anywhere on the body and is suitable for both men and women over the age of 16. Under 16s require G.P. permission. For further information visit the Electrolysis professional body website for Frequently asked questions to help you make an informed decision .
