ELECTROLYSIS – IT WORKS!
Since 1867, medical journals have reported successful treatments of unwanted hair removal through electrolysis. It is recognized as the only safe, permanent way to remove excess and unsightly hair on the face and body, according to the American Medical Association. Tweezers, razors, depilatories, etc., do not remove hair permanently and are only temporary method of eliminating a hair problem, and are annoying at best. Through the competence of trained and licensed professionals, both men and women can now enjoy the freedom from unwanted hair on any part of the body, except the inner nose and ears. Eyebrows can be shaped, the upper lip “cleaned”, ugly chin-hairs removed, hairlines reshaped, the bikini line defined efficiently with the technique. A few of the questions electrologists are most often asked about the procedure appear below:
Q: What is electrolysis? How does it work?
A: A tiny probe is inserted into each hair follicle and a small amount of heat is applied. The dermal papilla, which gives rise to the hair, is destroyed, loosening the hair in the process. The hair is easily then removed by a tweezer.
Q: Is it painful?
A: there is a slight sensation, relative to each individual – not puncturing or harming the skin in any way.
Q: What after-effects can a person expect?
A: In most cases, there are no after-effects. Any redness occurring disappears within an hour or so. Occasionally some people experience swelling or a slightly scabbing. The area treated should be kept clean and cosmetics avoided for 24 hours.
Q: How long does it take to completely treat an area?
A: Modern techniques have made it relatively quick and easy. A treatment can range from 15 to 60 minutes, and the treatments continue until the area is completed. Before beginning any electrolysis treatment, a consultation is recommended to understand your problem thoroughly.
Q: What about regrowth? Is it really permanent?
A: An electrologist treating an area can only remove the hairs that are visible. Other hair, in growth stages beneath the skin surface, appears, and that is then ready for treatment. Due to the hormonal changes in the system, or medications that are taken, hair can become obvious at a later time–the patron may think incorrectly that there is regrowth occurring. Actually, it is a change in the hair left behind. At this point, the electrologist will re-treat the area until it is “clean” once again.
Q: Is it expensive?
A: When you consider the alternative–a lifetime of waxes and depilatories electrolysis is quite inexpensive. The investment of time and effort is worth-while, considering the freedom from unwanted hair forever.
The electrologist can answer the other questions you may have associated with the hair removal, and her consultation is usually complimentary,

Q: What is permanent makeup?
A: The placing of color into the skin is done by pigmentation, not dyeing. Dyes are not used because they are easily dissolved and will spread through the tissue. Pigments are suspended particles which cling together and cannot be moved around in the tissue. They have been extensively tested and approved by the F.D.A. for use in cosmetics close to the eyes. The pigments are mixed specifically for each client to create the desired natural color.
