What is Electrolysis?

Electrolysis is a method of removing individual hairs from the face or body.After a very fine probe is inserted into the hair follicle, the hair is removed with tweezers. Electrolysis permanently removes unwanted hair by applying a minute amount of electricity to the base of the hair follicle to destroy it, with state of the art technology that makes the treatment more comfortable and effective than ever before. 

How long does it take to see results from electrolysis?

Electrolysis takes some patience but it's absolutely worth the wait as the effects are truly permanent. Most patients start to have noticeable results after several treatments, however, it can take on average 8-12 months for full results.

What are the side effects of electrolysis?

Electrolysis leaves no permanent side effects. The most common side effects after an electrolysis session are tenderness, redness and some swelling. These side effects are all normal and temporary. 

Should you shave before electrolysis?

Be sure to have NOT shaved, waxed or done any other method of hair removal for 3 days before treatment. The hairs need to be long enough to be grabbed with a professional tweezer. We strongly recommend shaving 3 days before treatment so that we can ensure completely permanent results for those hairs present.

How is electrolysis different from laser?

Laser hair removal involves the use of lasers to deliver mild radiation to the hair follicles. Electrolysis involves inserting a probe into the hair follicle and sending an electric current through it.
