Electrolysis

There are few things more annoying, or depressing, for a woman than unsightly hair growth (upper lip, chin, etc). While itís perfectly natural, you can get rid of it, permanently with electrolysis which uses a small electric current to destroy the hair follicles. The therapist will insert a very fine probe into the follicle and this kills the hair and the cells responsible for further hair growth.

Electrolysis will work on any hair type and colour.

There are two popular methods of electrolysis: Thermolysis creates heat using a high frequency current and this destroys the hair root. Blend combines, or blends, two different types of current to create a molecular change in the follicle. It turns the natural salt and water in the follicle into a substance called lye which destroys the hair-growth cells.

Both of these methods are hugely successful and your professional electrologist will know which is right for you and your skin type.

Our top tips on electrolysis:

  • Hair must be treated in the growth, or Anagen phase, to get the quickest, permanent, results.
  • Try to keep your skin well moisturised and hydrated. Use a good moisturiser daily which will also make your skin look and feel great.
  • Donít touch the treated areas afterwards or you might disrupt the anti bacterial action of the calming treatment provided at the end of your session.
  • Keep regular appointments with your professional electrologist.
