Electrolysis is a reliable, safe and time-tested solution for permanent hair removal

Electrolysis hair removal overview

Electrolysis is the only safe and approved by the FDA method of permanent hair removal, for all skin colors and hair types, known since 1875. In electrolysis, a very fine probe is inserted into the hair follicle in the skin surface, and an electric current passed down the needle, which destroys the hair root, in order that the hair does not grow back. The treated hair is then removed with tweezers. Hair grows in cycles and it might require multiple sessions to see permanent results (the amount of sessions will depend on a size and density of a treated area).

Why does it take time?
Each hair follicle has its own independent life cycle. Each cycle has 3 stages: Anagen, Catagen, Telogen.
Growing stage. Ideal to treat hair when it first appears through the skin surface – early growing stage. Lasts 1 month to 7 years.
Stage of regression. This short transitional phase between anagen and telogen. Lasts only for a few days or a few weeks.
Resting phase. There is no growth. Hair will fall out of the follicle at the end of this stage. Lasts 2-4 months.
Everyone is different, and hair growth cycles will vary depending
on age, health, genetics, level of stress and environmental factors.
Electrolysis is effective in growing (anagen) hairs. To achieve the best result, make the following recommendations:
Stop any hair removal methods that refers to the removal of hair by extraction from its root: plucking, tweezing, threading, waxing, sugaring, epilating. It will slowdown the whole process and can cause distorted hair follicles, which are more difficult to treat.
Shave 3-5 days prior to treatment. Prior shaving removes resting (telogen) hairs from the skin surface and ensures that Electrolysis is performed only in growing (anagen) hairs.
The hair must be long enough (minimum 4 millimeters) for the electrologist to grasp it with the forceps to perform Electrolysis.

Shaving does not cause hair to grow more rapidly or to become coarser.
Gently exfoliate your skin before the treatment, it helps to remove dead skin and loosen up pores for quick and effective insertions.
Harsh exfoliating products, chemical peels and anything else that irritates your skin should be avoided before your Electrolysis session.
Recommen -dations
Home care
Do not rub or scratch treated area; coagulated blood vessel segments may open and cause capillary bleeding if skin is stretched or rubbed.
In rare cases, scabs may form, it must not be peeled off. May leave a red mark on the skin lasting several months if they fall prematurely. Within 3 to 21 days scabs will fall out on their own.
24 hours following treatment, cold compress may be used.
Do not apply ice directly onto the skin.
Refrain from strenuous physical activity and exercise for 48 hours following treatment. An increase in blood flow may rupture the coagulation of the capillary and cause treatment failure.
Avoid the use of sauna, hot tube, swimming pool for 48 hours after treatment.
Avoid taking aspirin 48 hours after treatment.
Apply moisturizing cream until complete healing is achieved.
Apply total sun block to treated area and wear a brimmed hat for outdoor activities until complete healing.
Avoid tanning salons until healing is complete.
With clean fingers you may gently apply uncontaminated make-up avoiding sponges for they often carry bacteria.

What to expect from the consultation?
If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me
What will my skin look like after the treatment?
After electrolysis, it is normal to have some mild redness and welting
(small bumps) in the treated area. In most individuals, this will disappear in ½ hour to several hours.
What aftercare is required?
After every treatment, we will:
  • Cleanse the treated area
  • Apply witch hazel to soothe the skin
  • Apply Cortate ½% to reduce any irritation
When you go home, you need you to:
  • Keep the area clean
  • Keep your hands off the treated area
  • Carry on with your normal routine (soap and water, make-up etc.)
What should I do if any skin irritation persists?
In a small percentage of individuals, small red dots develop in the area. If this does happen, there is no reason for concern as these are “nature’s band-aids” and the is healing underneath the red dots.

If these red dots do develop:
  • Do not rub or scratch them off. Allow the skin to heal and these red dots will fall of on their, usually in 1-2 weeks.
  • Avoid perfumed soap, make-up and deodorant (if the underarm area was treated) until the irritation settles.
  • Use hydrocortisone ½ (Cortate ½%) two to three times a day until the irritation settles. This can be purchased in the drugstore a prescription.
What should I do if a bruise was caused during the treatment?
Occasionally, a bruise can occur during the electrolysis treatment. A bruise caused by electrolysis is the same as a bruise caused when you bump yourself. There is no treatment necessary for a bruise. It will fade, the same as any other bruise, in 1-2 weeks.
What should I do if there is swelling after I get home?
Occasionally, swelling can occur, especially if a great deal of work is done in the area. If there is swelling you may apply ice for 10 minutes 3-4 times a day until it subsides.
Will the area feel tender after the treatment?
Tenderness is quite rare but can occur. The area can feel tender for a few days to a week. There is no treatment necessary for tenderness.
Are there any other side effects?
In some darker skinned individuals, some excess pigment in the skin (hyperpigmentation0 or, in others, loss of pigment in the skin (hyperpigmentation) can occasionally occur in the treated area. This usually resolves after the treatments are completed. We have never seen a case where this is permanent in the skin, there are fading creams that can be purchased from the drugstore.
Is Electrolysis painful?
Everyone’s individual tolerance is different, and some areas of the body are more sensitive than others. A topical numbing cream such as Emla or Zensa can be used to reduce sensation if necessary. We will do a test patch during your free consultation, so you know how it feels like.
How long does it take?
There are several factors that will influence the total treatment time:

  • The size of the aria being treated
  • The hair density and texture
  • The client’s tolerance
  • Medical history (hormonal influence, medications)
  • The presence of distorted or curved follicles
  • The frequency of visits
Laser Hair Removal vs. Electrolysis. Which Is Better?
Laser therapy and Electrolysis both produce longer-lasting effects, but electrolysis seems to work better. Electrolysis provides permanent results while laser gives significant hair reduction for some period of time. Electrolysis also carries fewer risks and side effects, and you don’t need the maintenance treatments required for laser hair removal. In addition, Electrolysis works for all skin colors and hair types, while laser is not effective for non-pigmented and fine hair. The downside is that Electrolysis must be spread out over more sessions. It can’t cover large areas at once like laser hair removal can. Your choice may depend on what result you want to achieve and how quickly.
