Electrolysis

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. If you complete your course of electrolysis treatment you are guaranteed 100% permanent hair removal. It is important to attend regularly for treatment and follow the advice given to you by your therapist to ensure treatment success.

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, and bulge through either cauterisation or coagulation, thus destroying hair growth each hair removed at treatment will never grow again however there are more than one hair within each follicle and the growth cycle has three stages which means one hair can take up to 16 weeks to grow if in the telogen stage whilst other hairs grow within 6 weeks if in anagen stage of cycle.

Using the very latest computerised electrolysis machine with treatment times of 0.1 or 0.2 of a second on average. 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. Clients sign a consent form , consultation form and have before and after treatment photographs at consultation.

Electrolysis can be used almost anywhere on the body e.g. eyebrows, beards, moustache, ears nose hairs, underarms, chest/breasts, abdomen, bikini , full leg, half leg, toes , forearms, and fingers and is suitable for both men and women over the age of 16.
