F.A.Q


How does electrolysis remove hair?

A complete description is lengthy and highly technical, but basically the electrologist directs a tiny, split-second impulse into the hair root, causing destruction of the lower follicle. 

What causes the growth of extra hair?

Usually it can be traced to hereditary or glandular disturbance. Some types of illness, operations and medication may also be factors. But most hair that women and men want removed is not abnormal growth.

Is electrolysis expensive?

As compared with many other beauty treatments, the cost is moderate. It's a small price to pay for a lifetime of freedom from unsightly, unwanted stubborn hair. Don't you think you owe it to yourself to look into electrolysis now? We can assure its a decision you won't regret. 

Is electrolysis painful?

The current may produce a slight discomfort- a "stinging sensation". However, the sensation all depends on YOUR pain tolerance as everyone is different. Our electrologist will work with you to use a current that is not only effective for your treatment and type of hair but also to help make it as comfortable as possible. Some clients describe the sensation as a sudden surge of heat to the area, however they don't feel the filament being inserted into the skin. Many clients also assure that over time with treatments they gain tolerance to the sensation making it a smooth process. Our electrologists use gentle techniques to guarantee maximum comfort.

What if hair seems to return while I'm being treated?

Your own previous attempts to remove hair will be one reason for this, as hair usually takes one to fourteen weeks to regrow. In other words, some growth will be hair that had not yet appeared when you started treatment. But electrolysis WILL remove it PERMANENTLY over a series of treatments. Just as the saying, "Rome wasn't built in a day," electrolysis is a similar concept. Depending on the area and thickness/ type of hair you have, will depend on how many sessions you will need in order to see maximum results. We ask for your patience and cooperation of how you follow up with your skin and treated areas in order to amplify the final product.

What can I do about heavy growth of hair in between treatments?

Your electrologist will recommend how often you need to be treated. Do NOT tweeze, use depilatories, bleach or shave in between treatments as you are disrupting and ruining previous treatments and progress. 

Can I have all my hairs removed at one time?

That depends on the individual. Your electrologist will recommend a series of treatments, which will be performed over a period of weeks or months. 

How about healing?

Healing after electrolysis treatments is generally rapid and same day with no down time. You may have temporary redness, but it will quickly disappear as your skin adjusts. Your electrologist will recommend an after treatment program.
Some examples of after treatment would be: to gently cleanse the area using a loofa. However our recommendations are tailored to each client individually as we understand everyone is different and may react differently.
