Electrolysis hair removal is the only medically and scientifically proven means of permanent hair removal. Electrolysis is the only FDA approved method of permanent hair removal. It was first developed in 1875 by an ophthalmologist, who used it to remove ingrowing eyelashes. It has since been used successfully for permanent hair removal on different areas.

Effects on the skin
On the face, the skin can vary from pink to red depending on the skin’s sensitivity. In most cases the skin returns to normal within 15-30 minutes. If the face has been tweezed or waxed excessively, your skin may react more. However, remember to a good electrologist, your skin is as important as removing the hair.
Understanding Hair Growth Cycle
Are you tweezing everyday or waxing every week? You probably think your hair grows very fast. However, all hair takes 6-12 weeks to regrow. So the hair you removed today is not what you removed yesterday or last week or even 2 weeks ago, it is from at least 6 weeks ago. If you wax every 4-6 weeks you are only seeing about half of your full hair growth. You would need to leave the hair for 3 months to see the full hair growth cycle. We need to treat 2-4 cycles of hair grow for permanent removal. (6-12 months).
Generally, if we are able to clear an area of hair in the first 3 months, this will be most intense with weekly or fortnightly treatments there after. Treatment reduces to every 3 then 4 weeks etc until removed permanently.
If it is a very large area such as full face or back, regular treatment will be needed for at least 12 months, not always easy but always permanent. We will schedule the treatment to suit your lifestyle.
It is very important not to wax or tweeze the hair as this encourages the hair to become stronger. However you can cut, bleach or shave.
