Electrolysis is a treatment method for permanent hair removal that was invented more than 100 years ago. This method has been around the longest and proven the test of time. According to the US Food and Drug Administration, electrolysis is the only method that can claim to remove hair permanently. Most areas of the body can be treated with electrolysis, including the face, chest, abdomen and legs. It is very safe, reliable and effective. It is a suitable treatment for all hair and skin types. Unlike depilatories or bleaches, no harsh chemicals are used.
Electrolysis involves delivering energy via a fine sterile needle into the hair follicle. The energy destroys the cells responsible for hair growth. The loosened hair is then removed with sterile stainless steel tweezers. There are no permanent side effects. Sometimes, a slight reddening of the skin occurs after treatment, but this lasts usually only for a few hours.
I review your post treatment care with you to minimize inflammation so your skin looks good the next day. I have several products that you can use to follow up on treatment. Remember to only use fresh makeup to minimize the risk of infection.
For client safety and infection control, I use an autoclave which provides hospital grade sterilization on all reusable stainless steel instruments. The autoclave is checked monthly with spore samples to ensure good working order. My equipment includes a Zeiss surgical microscope which magnifies 1200 % meaning I can see that hair and my insertions are more accurate. My computerized epilator provides a consistent pulse without fluctuations in energy which could affect the outcome of your treatment. I use single use sterile needles, single use latex gloves and the treatment room is cleaned after every client.
During your consultation, I may take a digital image of the hair growth on your face and I chart your health history to determine the cause of your hair growth. Many factors influence hair growth and I help you understand your hair growth problem. Using visual aids, you’ll learn how electrolysis works and learn the differences between electrolysis, laser and other hair removal methods.
Just like the doctor, I chart all of your information after your treatment including the number of hairs treated and graph your treatments so you can track your progress.
You will need to return for several treatments over the span of your hair growth cycle of about one year. The total number of sessions needed to remove hair permanently from a particular area of your body varies from person to person. Consistent appointments will give you the results you are looking for. Electrolysis works on all hair colours and skin tones. However, as a result of hormonal issues or side effects of medication I cannot stop your body from producing new hair in different follicles, I can only successfully stop the hair that is growing.View Price List
