Electrolysis is still the only true permanent hair removal method and the only treatment recognized by the (FDA) Food and Drug Administration since 1875. Electrolysis has been around for over 100 years and is proven to be safe for all hair colors, skin types, and especially treating blonde hairs and course gray hairs. No other hair removal can claim this success.
Permanent hair removal is accomplished by directing a small amount of electrical current into the natural opening of the hair follicle with a fine probe until it reaches the base of the hair root. This procedure causes gradual cellular destruction, making the follicle unable to grow a hair. The number of treatments required for permanent results vary. Many factors are involved such as; one’s medical history, hormonal imbalances, ethnic background, age, previous methods of temporary hair removal, hair texture (fine vs. coarse), and a commitment to treatments. Electrolysis is safe, effective and affordable.

Common Questions & Answers About Electrolysis
Q – Does it always work? A – Yes but not always on the first try. To best understand this it helps to understand how hair grows. Hair grows in 4 stages and then falls out and starts over. The hair’s follicle is only present and susceptible to treatment during the first and most of the second stage of growth. If a hair is treated during the last phase of growth the effort is wasted because there just isn’t a follicle there to treat. Unfortunately there is no way to know what phase of growth the individual hairs are in. This is why it’s important to return for treatments frequently. When you come in for regular treatments the hair that does return can be treated when it is in a susceptible phase in its cycle. Q - How long will electrolysis take? A - That depends enormously on how much hair is involved and the patient’s compliance with the needed scheduling. Remember, this is a PERMANENT treatment so while it may seem lengthy at first, at least there is an end in sight. The repetitive time and financial commitment is similar to waxing except there is less and less hair left to treat each time and you eventually won't have any hair left! The average client will receive several sessions lasting from 15 min to one hour, depending upon the area that needs to be treated. Clients get to create their own treatment plan based on time and finances available.
I COMMONLY TELL PEOPLE IT TAKES 8 SECONDS PER HAIR AND THEN IT GETS PLUCKED AFTER SEVERAL HAVE BEEN TREATED. HOW LONG A TREATMENT TAKES IS ALL BASED ON HOW MUCH HAIR YOU HAVE. YOUR APPOINTMENT TIME DECREASES SLOWLY AS THE HAIR STARTS TO DISAPPEAR, MAKING YOUR TREATMENTS CHEAPER AND CHEAPER AS YOU GO. IT IS ROUGHLY AROUND 38 TO 68 % REDUCTION IN HAIR THICKNESS EACH TIME IT IS TREATED, UNTIL IT DISAPPEARS. CLIENTS BEGIN TO NOTICE THE DIFFERENCE AFTER THE 1ST TREATMENT, DEPENDING ON THICKNESS AND AMOUNT.
A small amount of hair on a lip, for example, would take much less time and fewer treatments than it would take to do a pair of underarms. The secret to successful and productive electrolysis is catching each hair in the proper growth cycle and treating it during the optimum growing state. Typically, appointments are scheduled weekly or every other week at first for the first few sessions, then you may come in once a month to get a small amount. Generally, depending on the area and thickness, most hair can be cleared in a few months or more. Some underarms and removing a beard may take more than a few months, but it gets cheaper as you go and the appointments get farther apart as the hair decreases. Because there are 4 different growing cycles, some hair remains hidden at any given time, and it may take several months for most areas. The number of total treatments will vary from area to area and person to person.
Like I stated earlier, it is similar in time and cost to waxing but the treatment time and cost decreases as you go, thus it will become permanent once all the treatments are completed.
Q – Why not use the laser system? A – There are lots of reasons why. First, remember the very important word “PERMANENT." Lasers remove a lot of hair quickly (at $ub$tantial expense) and the hair stays away longer than waxing or tweezing BUT it WILL return. Remember what the FDA says? Oh well, back for another treatment. Also lasers are next to useless for light colored and white hairs. Lasers aren’t painless or immune to the possibilities of skin damage. Just ask a friend that’s been through these treatments. Lasers are not safe for many skin types and do not work well on light colored hair. It is common for lasers to only remove the melanin out of the hair and not the hair itself, leaving you looking more aged with white hairs that later return. Oh, and remember they aren’t permanent.
Q – What can I expect in terms of visible skin reaction to the treatments? A – A mild sunburn appearance should be expected and will last for three or four hours. Putting makeup on the skin immediately is highly discouraged. You are likely to notice some slight redness or pink and perhaps some swelling or slight welting. This is normal. You will be given a skin care bag during your first appointment with calamine location that is calming and safe for the skin.
Q – Is new hair growth possible? A – Yes. You can grow brand new hair follicles that can produce unwanted hair. But hair will never regrow from the same follicles that completed the electrolysis cycles. Most people develop NEW active hair follicles with age, but this takes years or decades to take place. Ask your dad about his ears or your mom about her upper lip. Removing all your offensive hair now will make follow up visits much shorter and less frequent. Hormone changes that happen during pregnancy, menopause and general aging can create brand new hair follicles that were not available to treat at the time of your last procedure. But not to worry, this is a very slow process that may take many years or decades to see.
