Frequently Asked Questions:
What is Electrolysis and How Does it Work?
Electrolysis is the use of electrical current to cauterize hair follicles rendering them unable to produce a hair while protecting the surface of the skin.
We use the Blend Method which combines Direct Current (DC or Galvanic) and Alternating Current ( High Frequency or Thermolysis). When Galvanic Current is applied to the hair follicle it causes the salt and water molecules to break apart and form Sodium Hydroxide (lye) which is caustic and will fill the follicle. The Alternating Current cauterizes the hair follicles using heat. Combined, it is the best version of Electrolysis Hair Removal
Does It Hurt?
Electrolysis feels like a tiny pinch or just a little bit of heat. How much it hurts depends on the person and the area of the body. Electrolysis doesn’t bother everyone, but for those who feel it really hurts, we can use lidocaine gel to help numb the area.
Where can Electrolysis be Done?
If we can see the hair, we can remove the hair. Electrolysis can be done on any hair or skin color and in almost any area.
Electrolysis VS. Laser
Electrolysis is the use of electrical current to cauterize the hair follicle so that it can no longer produce a hair. Electrolysis is the only FDA approved method of Permanent Hair Removal. It can be done on any hair color or skin color. It is a tried and true method of hair removal that does take multiple sessions
Laser is the use of light and heat ( depends on the laser) to target and destroy pigment. Laser’s effectiveness depends on the hair pigment so the hair must be darker than the skin tone. The best candidate for laser hair removal is someone with pale skin and dark hair. Laser cannot claim to be permanent, but it can reduce hair. Laser works great on larger body areas such as a full back or full legs. When a series of laser treatments have been done, electrolysis can finish the area. Laser can also be quite painful, but the sessions are usually quick though multiple sessions are required.
