Frequently Asked Questions
What Causes Unwanted Hair Growth?
Hair growth is the result of heredity and hormonal levels. Also, some drugs, temporary methods of hair removal, and some illnesses can stimulate hair growth. Usually, hair growth is desirable. But when the hair is on the wrong part of your body -- a woman's upper lip or chin or bikini line, for example -- you may want to consider electrolysis.
Is This Hair Removal Permanent?
Yes, it is permanent. It will take a series of appointments to get the hair to stay away and the amount of appointments needed for each client depends upon the thickness and intensity of the hair growth.
Can Unwanted Hair Be Removed From Anywhere On The Body?
Electrolysis works on all skin and hair types. It can be applied to most facial and body parts, including: eyebrows, chin, upper & lower lip, jaw line & sides of the face, breast, underarms, abdomen, bikini line, legs and back. Based on a personal and confidential consultation, your electrologist will design a treatment plan that addresses your specific hair removal needs.
Can I Continue To Shave The Treated Areas In Between Appointments?
Yes, you can, that is perfectly fine.
Why Should I Choose Electrolysis Over Other Temporary Methods Like Laser and Waxing?
Unlike other hair removal options, professionally performed electrolysis eliminates unwanted hair, permanently, with unsurpassed results. Moreover, it does so for the largest variety of skin and hair types. Laser promoters compare laser to electrolysis although laser assisted hair removal is considered a temporary method. It has not been evaluated for long-term safety of the patient’s skin and health.
Waxing, threading and tweezing are alike. However, ingrown hairs and discoloration may result. Additionally, they may cause an increase in hair growth activity. Depilatories and Shaving can cause an irritation to the skin while the hair regrows quickly. These methods can require a lifetime of maintenance. Many can appear inexpensive but cost more due to long term use and are found to be inconvenient.Electrolysis works on most areas of the body to give you smooth, sleek healthy looking skin. No other solution claims such universal acceptability and success.
What Does Electrolysis Feel Like?
Electrolysis treatments sting, but individual tolerances vary greatly. Even the most sensitive person should be able to tolerate the treatments. The sting from treatment is quick, and then it's over.
How many treatments will I need or how long does it take to permanently remove the hair?
The short answer would be to say that each person's experience will vary depending on many factors, such as: hair color, hair density, hair thickness, and what has already been done to the hair. This can be explained in much deeper detail during consultation and we can discuss how these factors affect you personally.
