Testimonials:

After years of bleaching, plucking, waxing, shaving and an attempt at laser hair removal, it is so satisfying to finally see results that are permanent.  The decision to start electrolysis treatment has done more to boost confidence in myself than anything else.  

- Amanda B

When laser hair removal fell short of the results I was looking for, I found electrolysis to be extremely effective. After years of battling with unwanted hair, it was a tremendous relief to find a method of hair removal that actually delivered on its promise, and at a very fair price for a budget restricted student like myself.

- Alex S

For many years I waxed and tweezed my hair but really started to get frustrated with the way I looked and felt. My self-esteem was at a low. But when I started doing electrolysis, everything changed. My friend recommended I try it and promised that I would be 100% satisfied. Well, she was right. The results are great and the hair does not grow back. My upper lip is clear and the rest of my face is clear as well. Electrolysis is the only way to go for hair removal, especially if you’re looking for permanent results.

- Maria

IS YOUR UNWANTED HAIR PROBLEM CAUSING YOU

  • Frustration?
  • Low self-esteem?
  • Emotional stress?
  • Embarrassment?

Have you tried temporary forms of hair removal and find it is only making your skin irritated, causing you ingrown hairs and pigmentation or even worse making your unwanted hair problem bigger?

There is only one method of permanent hair removal that does work - electrolysis.

ELECTROLYSIS HAS BEEN IN USE SINCE 1875 AND IS THE ONLY SCIENTIFICALLY AND MEDICALLY FDA APPROVED PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL METHOD.

Electrolysis is for anyone who has an unwanted hair problem and it has helped clients with conditions or is in situations such as:

  • Hormonal changes
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
  • Heredity

Electrolysis is suitable for everyone

  • ANY SKIN COLOR 

  • ANY HAIR TYPE

  • MALE or FEMALE

Electrolysis is the only medically approved form of permanent hair removal, period, and was invented and refined by doctors. Dr Charles Michel first used it successfully in 1875 to remove ingrown eyelashes.

He discovered that once the follicle had been treated with electrolysis the hair was permanently destroyed.

Unwanted hair is a major concern for both men and women of all ages and the idea of never having to wax, thread, shave, epilate, bleach or pluck certain face or body parts ever again is extremely enticing.

For those who seek complete and permanent hair removal on any part of the body, regardless of skin tone or hair color, there remains only one method that is FDA approved ELECTROLYSIS.

There are 3 main methods of electrolysis and all 3 are capable of permanently removing hair they are:

  1. Galvanic
  2. Thermolysis (is also called diathermy or RF diathermy in some countries).
  3. The Blend.

How does electrolysis work?

Electrolysis involves the insertion of a very fine, disposable, sterile probe (the same diameter as the hair) into the hair follicle, which is a natural opening in the skin. A tiny amount of energy is then skillfully discharged into the hair follicle. The only sensation felt by the client is heat passing down the probe to the base of the follicle. The follicle destruction is achieved by heat (with thermolysis) or a chemical reaction (with galvanic) or both blended together (with the blend).

The treatment can be adapted to suit each client’s skin, hair and pain threshold.

Electrolysis can be used on any part of the body. No type or volume of body hair is too stubborn for treatment and no body part too embarrassing.

Treatment areas include all facial areas, legs, bikini line, chest, nipples, back, abdomen, underarms, fingers, toes and eye brows
The first sign that electrolysis treatment is working is that the hair growth becomes softer, finer and lighter in color.

Following treatment clients will be given instructions to support the electrolysis treatment.

Electrolysis can be viewed as a safe, longer term Investment. Many clients begin with treatment of smaller areas. Once they see results, they think of larger areas (underarms, bikini lines, legs, chest, back, etc.)

Choose the right technique according to the  skin type

Frequently Asked Questions

What is electrolysis?

  • Electrolysis treats each hair follicle individually with a needle to permanently stop another hair growing. Hair becomes thinner, lighter and less.

Which areas can be treated with electrolysis?

  • Virtually any area, apart from the inside of the nose and inner ear.

Can I have electrolysis if I’m pregnant?

  • Pregnancy is not normally a contra-indication to the thermolysis method of electrolysis., There is no risk to mother or unborn child provided both are otherwise healthy, although treatment of the breast and abdominal areas should be avoided, especially in the later stages of pregnancy.

  • However, the ‘Blend’ or ‘Galvanic’ methods of electrolysis may best be avoided during pregnancy. These methods use direct (DC) electrical current. If you are unsure which method you may be offered, please ask your electrologist.

Does it hurt?

  • It is roughly the same sensation as if you were to pluck the hair. However it varies according to where the hair is and how you have been removing the hair so far.

How many treatments do I need?

  • Since everyone has a different density of hair (ie some have lots packed into a small area and others have less hair spaced out) it’s impossible to put a figure on the number of treatments you’ll need. You will certainly need to have regular appointments over a long period of time.

What are the side effects? Will I get scarred?

  • There is usually some redness and a little swelling resembling an insect bite straight after electrolysis. These will disappear after an hour or so. The next day your skin will be clear and shouldn’t show any signs of treatment.
