Electrolysis Hair Removal is a Permanent Hair Removal method that has been safely performed for almost 150 years. It is effective on all hair types and hair colors. It is also safe for all body areas. It is 100% effective when performed correctly. It is the only FDA approved method of permanent hair removal.
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.
Each individual has different needs and different amounts of hair so treatments are paid for by the time it takes to clear the area. You can view our rates here.
To get a better idea on cost, we will need to determine how long your appointments will need to be and often you will need to come in to clear the area. This can be achieved during your free, no obligation consultation & sample treatment.
Electrolysis is a lifetime investment in yourself. This hair removal process will last a lifetime and is worth every penny when it's done right.
Electrolysis treatments are offered in 15 minutes increments. Once we view the area during your consultation we 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. Multiple appointments will be needed to clear the area initially. Some areas are also much to large to treat in one session and we don't want to over treat the skin. It will take 8-13 weeks to treat each hair once. Frequent appointments in the beginning stages will greatly contribute to getting results in the shortest time frame possible. The more you keep on top of the growth, the quicker the process will work.
A significant reduction is usually seen once the area has been cleared 2 times (6 months due to the hair growth cycles). You will know that it's working because the hair growth will start to slow down and the hairs will become thinner and less noticeable. At this point, we will reduce the length and frequency of your appointments and continue treating the remaining hair until permanency is achieved.
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. We 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. We have been specializing in Microscopic Electrolysis since 2008.
