There is no question that unwanted body hair is a very real problem affecting confidence and self-esteem for men, women and young adults. While the best solution is permanent hair removal, it can be confusing to choose the correct method for lasting results.
Many factors can contribute to the growth of excess hair including heredity, physiological changes, abnormal endocrine system (polycystic ovarian syndrome), medications, topical influences and stress. Regardless of your specific hair problem, electrolysis can safely and permanently eliminate it for you.
A trained Electrologist inserts a small metal probe into the hair follicle until it reaches the base of its growth, the dermal papilla. A small, non-injurious amount of electric current is then delivered to the probe by a sensitive electronic device called an epilator. The current destroys the hair root permanently either by heat or chemical action, or both. The hair is then removed with a tweezers.
A method that uses high frequency current to produce heat that cauterizes and destroys the dermal papilla. One sterile probe is used in this process.
A combination of Galvanic and Thermolysis procedures. The Electrologist will select the best method based on hair type, skin characteristics and sensitivity.
Electrology fees begin at $55 for 15 minutes,
$70 for 30 minutes, $90 for 45 minutes, $110 for 60 minutes.
There is a $5 discount for cash transactions per treatment.
How does electrolysis work?
A trained electrologist inserts a small probe into the hair follicle
alongside the hair. A small amount of electrical current is delivered to the probe by a sensitive electronic device called an epilator. Depending on the technique used, the current destroys the hair root either by heat, chemical reaction or by the Blend method which uses both at the same time.
How many treatments will I need?
Electrolysis requires a series of treatments over a period of time and the amount of time used per visit varies from person to person. Factors such as coarseness of the hair, total area to be treated, consistency of the treatments, and the causes for the hair growth are considered. Many hairs will be permanently removed after the first treatment but some will require additional appointments to achieve permanency. Treatments will be more frequent in the beginning and less frequent later on. Permanent hair free skin is well worth the time spent.
This varies depending on a patient’s tolerance, machine settings,
modality used, as well as other factors. During most treatments a
sensation sometimes described as “slight heat” “tingling” or “stinging” sensation is noticed. Your electrologist is trained to work within the comfort tolerance of each patient.
Electrolysis is the only scientifically proven method to be permanent. Laser is a faster treatment and works best with dark hair. Electrolysis is effective on all hair shades, including blonde, red and gray. In some cases, both methods are combined to achieve the desired result.
Hair can be removed from almost anywhere on the body. Some common areas for women include the hairline, eyebrows, top of the nose, cheeks, sideburn area, upper and lower lip, chin, throat and neck, breast, bikini line as well as toes and fingers. Inside the nose and ear canal should not be treated. Hairy moles may be treated with the written permission of a physician. Men often have hair removed from the hairline, beard line, shoulders, back and neck. Electrolysis is very helpful for treating ingrown hairs which frequently cause irritation in the beard area.
There are many factors that contribute. Sometimes it’s just hereditary or normal physiological changes. Other times the cause can be a malfunction of the endocrine system (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome), stress, or even medication. In these cases you may want to consult a physician. Regardless of the cause of your specific hair problem, electrolysis can safely and permanently eliminate it for you.
Electrolysis has been in primary service since 1875 and is the only hair removal technique approved by The American Medical Association. Modern electrologists use the most up-to-date, effective methods of sterilization and disinfection and follow guidelines set up by a major electrolysis organization in conjunction with the Federal Center for Disease Control. Don't hesitate to ask your electrologist about the scientific methods used to guarantee your safety.
Electrolysis is the only form of permanent hair removal that can treat all colors as well as all hair and skin types without a problem. You can choose electrolysis with the utmost confidence that your life will be changed in a positive way.
