The Process of Electrolysis is Gentle But Effective
Electrolysis is the process of using heat or chemical energy to permanently remove unwanted body hair by destroying the central growth cells of hair follicles. A specialized electrology medical device called an IB probe is inserted into an individual hair follicle, sending an electrical current straight to the root of the hair. This electrical current cauterizes the papilla, thus hindering the follicle’s ability to produce more hair.
Most areas that grow hair are treatable with electrolysis. This includes upper lip, eyebrows, chin, cheeks, forehead, sideburns, arms, under arms, hands, bikini line, legs, feet, back, shoulders, abdomen, breasts, and more. Electrolysis hair removal may be performed on most skin moles, so long as licensing regulations permit the procedure. Your C.P.E. may require written approval from your doctor.
Electrolysis is NOT the Same as Laser Hair Removal
Electrolysis is entirely different from laser hair removal because it is a non-medical procedure that uses heat or chemical energy to actually kill the growth cells of hair follicles. Laser hair removal uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) that converts to heat, thus damaging the tube-shaped sacs within hair follicles. Laser hair removal is not permanent; it simply delays hair growth for a long time.
You Can Have Smooth Skin By Next Summer or Fall!
The total number of treatments mostly depends on your hair type and the amount of hair you wish to have removed, so the amount of sessions will differ from client to client. But really, the total number of electrolysis treatments you will require for permanent hair removal is virtually impossible to know until the process begins. Electrolysis can take anywhere from 1 to 4 years on average; longer for facial hair removal. Most clients come in on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, and sessions generally last between 15 and 60 minutes.
Always discuss your electrolysis questions and concerns with a Certified Professional Electrologist (C.P.E.) who can give you personalized advice you can trust. They can help you understand the process better so you can know exactly what to expect at your first electrolysis appointment, and how long it takes to get completely hair-free.
