How does electrolysis work?
A small probe is inserted into the hair follicle, adjacent to the growing hair shaft. Once the electrologist has reached the accurate depth, a small electrical current will be applied. This will destroy regenerating cells and cauterize the nerve ending and blood supply to that specific hair follicle. When this has been done correctly, the regenerative ability of the hair follicle is permanently eliminated.
Does electrolysis hurt?
Sensitivity differs between individuals, however, in most cases electrolysis is tolerable. Some clients describe the sensation as a pinch or a sting. The settings can be adjusted to ensure efficacy of treatment and comfort for each client. Your electrologist is trained to work within the comfort tolerance of her patients. Don’t hesitate to let her know what you are feeling.
Is electrolysis permanent?
Yes. Most hairs will be permanently destroyed after one treatment. Coarser hairs may require 2 or more treatments to be successfully destroyed.
How many treatments will I need?
After an evaluation, a treatment plan will be recommended for you. There are many factors that must be considered when devising a treatment plan, such as:
How large is the area?
How much hair is there?
How fast does your hair grow?
Are you experiencing any hormonal changes/imbalances?
How long of a session can you tolerate?
How often are you able to receive treatments?
Is electrolysis safe?
Yes. There have been no reports of significant disease being caused, or transmitted, because of electrolysis. The electrologist follows the utmost sterilization, disinfection, and antisepsis guidelines. Single-use probes are used for each client and then properly disposed of.
Are there any negative side effects from electrolysis?
Any negative side effects that you may experience are temporary. Swelling, redness, sensitivity and welting are the most common side effects, but with proper post-care instruction and utilization, these results will be minimal. Deeper skin tones are more susceptible to post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation. If this occurs, these marks will fade within a few weeks or months.
How should I prepare for my electrolysis treatment?
Stop tweezing and waxing between treatments. Hair to be treated needs to be 1/8 - 1/4 inch in length. Most people will shave or trim the area one week prior to treatment. Drink plenty of water. Hydrate your skin. It is advised to avoid caffeinated beverages 24 hours prior, as this increases nerve sensitivity. It is strongly encouraged to follow any post-care instruction between treatments to ensure the skin is healing properly and able to continue receiving additional electrolysis.
