Electrolysis is the only true method of Permanent Hair Removal and is a life changing process. It has been safely performed for almost 150 years and is completely effective on all hair types and hair colors. It is the only FDA approved method of permanent hair removal. Christa has been specializing in Microscopic Electrolysis Since 2008.
If you are suffering from unwanted hair on any body area and you are tired of endlessly using temporary methods, then Electrolysis is for you. If you have a hormonal imbalance or a medical condition that causes excessive hair growth, Electrolysis is for you. If you feel embarrassed or have low self esteem due to unwanted hair, Electrolysis is for you. If you want to be free from the burden of unwanted hair forever, Electrolysis is for you.
Electrolysis is a delicate procedure that must be performed by a skilled Electrologist. Using a light source with magnification, an extremely fine filament is inserted into the natural opening of the hair follicle. The Electrologist must not only accurately insert this probe into your follicle, but also to the proper depth. Once in place, a high frequency current will be released using a foot pedal. This current will travel from the epilator, and through the probe into your follicle. This current will slow/destroy the growth cells of the hair (also referred to as the source of nourishment). After the hair is treated, it is gently removed with forceps.
When performed correctly and the treatment plan followed, Electrolysis works on EVERYONE and is 100% effective on ALL hair colors, skin colors or body areas. No questions, no exceptions.
Electrolysis is fairly gentle with the advanced technology available today. Your sensitivity and tolerance level as well as the area being treated will determine the sensation. During your consultation you will receive a complimentary sample treatment so you can see how it feels before you decide to proceed. Numbing creams can be used before hand if you feel you have a lower pain tolerance.
All areas of the body can be safely treated with Electrolysis (see more below)
There is no set cost for Electrolysis since each individual has different needs and different amounts of hair. Therefore treatments are paid for by the time it takes to remove the hair. Treatments start at $35 plus tax. During your consultation I will be able to recommend appointment length and frequency so you can get a better idea on cost per appointment. You can see our rates and discounted packages here.
Electrolysis treatments are offered in 15 minutes increments. Once I view the area during your consultation I can recommend the appointment length that will get you results in the shortest amount of time. Ultimately it is up to you how long you wish to book per session, depending on your time, tolerance and budget.
Each person will have a different treatment plan depending on the body area, amount of hair and whether you have been tweezing and waxing. Since not all hairs are visible at the same time and they are all growing in different cycles, there is no way to treat all the hairs in one session. During your free, no obligation consultation I will explain the process to you in detail and examine the area so I can recommend duration and frequency that will get you results in the shortest amount of time.
The magnification your Electrologist uses is extremely important. Improper insertion leads to poor or no results as well as scarring. When you are having such a delicate procedure, you want to be sure your Electrologist has the best view of the follicle so that this doesn't happen. I always recommend having Electrolysis done with a Microscope. The higher the magnification, the more precise the insertion can be. It allows for perfect accuracy and every last hair you want removed can be seen and treated without hesitation. I have been specializing in Microscopic Electrolysis since 2008.
Electrolysis is the only method of PERMANENT hair removal. Electrolysis is guaranteed to work because treatments target the hair follicle directly. Laser treatments are not guaranteed to work since treatments are performed on the skins surface and many external factors can result in treatments having little to no effect. Laser may also result in a symptom called paradoxical laser hair simulation where the hair growth gets worse. Hair stimulation CANNOT happen with Electrolysis treatments. I never ever recommend laser for the face as I have seen too many treatments go wrong. In my career I have treated many people who spent thousands on laser only to have to start all over again with Electrolysis. Electrolysis is the way to go if you want to be sure your hair is gone for good.
A consultation gives you the opportunity to learn about the Electrolysis process without making a commitment to starting treatments. The consultation allows you to meet the Electrologist, visit the space, see the equipment and learn what it will entail to reach permanent results. Educating yourself about Electrolysis allows you to make an informed decision on whether the process is a right fit for you.
At the consultation we will discuss areas you are considering for treatment, temporary methods previously used, medical history, etc. I will explain the Electrolysis process to you and will show you on a diagram how the treatment works. I will discuss possible temporary side effects as well as after treatment care. I will offer you a complimentary sample treatment to show you what the treatment feels like. This will allow me to determine the setting that I will need to correctly remove the hair. This will also allow me to recommended appointment starting length and frequency so you can get an idea on cost per appointment. There is no obligation to continue with treatments and you are welcome to go home and think about it before making a decision.
