Electrolysis is the only method of permanent hair removal to eliminate unwanted hair from the chin, lip, eyebrow, bikini, underarm, back, leg and arm.
It’s safe, painless and suitable for both men and women. Results are up to 2x better then Laser hair reduction and cheaper by almost 50%. It involves the insertion of a sterilized probe into the hair follicle (the natural skin opening from which the hair grows), a small electrical current is then passed down this probe to treat the growing portion of the hair follicle so it can no longer produce a new hair. A heat and tingling sensation is felt during the current flow. Unlike laser, waxing or threading; electrolysis targets only the hairs requiring treatment.
The total number of sessions needed to remove hair permanently from a particular area will vary from person to person. Most clients return once a week or every other week as needed. But the unwanted hair will be gone forever once the series of treatments is complete. Each treatment generally lasts between 15 minutes and one hour. Electrolysis can be performed on all skin and hair types.

What is the electrolysis procedure?
An electrologist gently slides a fine disposable and sterilized probe approximately the diameter of the hair into the natural opening of the hair follicle alongside the unwanted hair. Once the probe is in place at the target area of the hair follicle, a current is released. The current, a minute pulse of electrical energy, is released through the probe destroying the growth cells and preventing that follicle from producing another hair.
What will I feel?
The insertion of the probe into the natural opening of the hair follicle will be painless. Once the probe is in place the current will be released. Your tolerance level and the sensitivity of the area being treated will determine the sensation. A FREE sample treatment will be performed during your FREE consultation so you will know what to expect in future treatments. Clients with low pain thresholds have options to make the treatments more comfortable.
How many treatments will I need?
The length of appointment and the number of treatments necessary will vary with each client. Many factors will determine how many treatments you will need, for example, ethnic background, hair texture, density, the area being treated and temporary methods previously used.
What areas can be treated?
Most areas where women and men have unwanted hair may be treated successfully with electrolysis. The most commonly treated areas on women are face, upper lip, chin, eyebrows and bikini line. For men the most common areas treated are eyebrows, ears and backs.
What causes hair growth?
Unwanted hair growth is usually caused by one of three general categories. 1. Congenital; genetic hair patterns we come into the world with. 2. Systemic; caused by hormonal changes and glandular problems. 3. Topical; caused by temporary methods of hair removal such as tweezing and irritation to the skin.
Is there any risk to having electrolysis?
For most healthy people there is absolutely no health risk. Electrolysis has been performed safely for over 100 years to many satisfied clients. The electrologist will review your health history, medications currently prescribed and concerns during the consultation.
What are your sterilization procedures?
We take stringent sterilization and sanitation procedures seriously. We always use a new sterile disposable needle on each client disposing of it in a puncture proof container after one use. Tweezers are sterilized after each use in Accel TB – a powerful disinfectant that uses Hydrogen Peroxide. Accel TB is an intermediate level disinfectant effective against a broad-spectrum of pathogens. The electrologist wears a new pair of disposable gloves for each client.
What questions should I ask during my consultation?
After a thorough consultation, you should be able to ask questions concerning the procedure. The electrologist will answer all of your questions and give you an estimate on how long the procedure will take.
