Electrolysis remains the premier method of hair removal and
is approved by the Food and Drug Administration and the
American Medical Association for safety and permanency.
Electrolysis eliminates any hair and treats all skin types.
A sterilized ultra fine probe is inserted into the natural
opening of the hair follicle followed by a measured amount
of electrical current to the base of the follicle. The
hair detaches from the follicle and is removed with a
tweezer. Each hair is treated individually. This
procedure causes gradual cellular destruction, ultimately
impairing the ability of the follicle to produce hair.
Since certain areas of the body are more sensitive to
treatment than others, the sensations associated with
electrolysis will vary.
What to expect after treatment
An electrolysis treatment may result in a slight reddening
of the skin. This is temporary and varies with
individual skin types.
Standards of Sanitation and Sterilization
Strict sanitation and sterilization procedures are adhered
to set by the CDC providing a clean professional environment.
Sterile disposable probes are used.
State-of-the-art computerized equipment
provides precise, effective technique combined with maximum
There are three modalities that can be used to eliminate
unwanted hair, and all 3 are effective. The best
method will be selected for you based on your hair type,
skin characteristics and sensitivity.
A chemical method that utilizes a direct current to
convert normal body salt and water in
the follicle into a compound capable of destroying
the dermal papilla.
A method that uses high frequency current to produce
heat in the area influenced by the current.
This heat cauterizes and destroys the dermal
The Blend method is a combination of the above two
modalities where the hair root is destroyed by both heat and
chemical action at the same time.
