Electrolysis -What is it all about?

Electrolysis Hair Removal - What's it all about?

For what ever reason you have begun seeing annoying hair on the chin, upper lip or sides of the face & neck? You are asking yourself are there any other way's of getting rid of this hair which is a little more permanent than tweezing or waxing.

This hair maybe fair in colour and you've been told that laser will not work due to the lack of pigment?

The area you are considering is only small and there are only a few hairs?

Electrolysis could be the solution for you. It is a method that has been used for well over a hundred years and the technology is much the same. Using a combination of High Frequency which produces heat in the hair follicle and Direct Current which produces sodiuym hydroxide or lye to effectively destroy the dermal papilla of the hair follicle the area that supplies the hair with nutrients to grow. Electrolysis requires regular treatments (beginning weekly then to monthly and so on) the hair will become lighter and finer. Each hair is individually treated by using a fine disposable needle inserted along the follicle. The experience you may feel is slight tingling and heat in the follicle. It is important to have a detailed consultation prior to commencing treatment as there are many factors to consider. The cause of the hair growth is important. Any hormonal conditions such as polycystic ovarian syndrome may mean electrolysis will only maintain the growth that is there as the stimulus continues. Generally speaking hair growth is often caused by hormonal changes in the body and this can be seen directly when we start seeing darker thicker hair growth later in our lives when our oestrogen levels begin to decline i.e peri menopause 30 years plus to menopause. Electrolyiss can become a part of your 4-6 weekly beauty therapy appointment to maintain the unwanted hair growth we experience on many areas of the face and body. With regular treatments electrolysis is very successful.
