Electrolysis is the only medically recognized way to permanently remove unsightly hair from your body. Electrolysis is commonly used on a wide variety of body parts including:
- Upper lip
- White, gray or red hairs
Electrolysis Hair Removal – How does Electrolysis work?
With the process of electrolysis, using a device called an epilator, every hair is individually treated according to its depth, thickness and direction of growth. A pre-sterilized, individual disposable probe (filament) is used only once for each patient, insuring complete safety. The probe is inserted into the hair follicle, which is actually a natural opening on the skin.
There is a slight tingling, warm sensation as a very small amount of controlled electrical current cauterizes and destroys the dermal papilla (hair matrix that controls the development and growth of the hair). This causes the hair to become dislodged.
A forceps is then used to help the hair slide out effortlessly. There is no pulling sensation when the procedure is performed properly. The skin is not harmed in any way. Electrolysis is a good option for people who know they will not want any hair at all to return to a particular part of their body.
Many people choose electrolysis because it is more convenient to permanently remove hair then to shave or undergo waxing on a regular basis. Unlike many creams or depilatories, there are no permanent side effects from electrolysis.
