Electrolysis is a hair removal method by which a filament or needle is inserted into the unwanted hair follicle. Electricity/current is applied then removed by forceps/tweezers. (Thermolysis is the recommended treatment for clients with a pacemaker so only heat is applied and not an electric current.) Some people feel nothing and some feel a little discomfort but most people find it very tolerable. Genitals are an additional $35/hr.
TREATMENT MODALTIES AVAILABLE
Thermolysis (alternating current) produces heat destroying the hair growth cells in the follicle.
Galvanic electrolysis (direct current) is a chemical process that takes place when the probe meets the moisture in the follicle.
The current produces a chemical reaction in the hair follicle eliminating the hair growth cells.
The Blend is the newest modality, having been in use since 1945. This has proven to be the most successful permanent hair removal method because of its dual action using the direct current (Galvanic) with the heat/vibration from the alternating current (Thermolysis).
ELECTROLYSIS MAY ALLEVIATE INGROWN HAIR
PLUCKING, WAXING, SHAVING & THREADING
… can cause hairs to be ingrown. Ingrowns grow back into the skin instead of up through the surface of the skin. The above forms of removal may make hairs darker and thicker. Additionally, those methods provide a blood supply to the hair follicles, thus, encouraging regrowth and stimulating other hair to grow.
Some people are at higher risk for ingrown hairs. For example, people with thick, curly hair tend to develop ingrown hairs. This is especially true with pubic hair. When this type of hair is shaved, it is stretched and therefore springs back into the follicle causing ingrown hairs.
