Electrolysis has been in existence for over 130 years and is the only form of permanent hair removal approved by the FDA. Unlike other methods, Electrolysis eliminates all textures of hair and treats all skin types and pigments, with little to no side effects, even on sensitive skin!
Removal of unwanted hair is nothing new. Throughout history, people have gone to great lengths to get rid of excess facial and body hair. As early as 4000 B.C., women in Ancient Egypt made hair removal creams from beeswax, arsenic, and quicklime. Through evolution, people devised various other antidotes for removing hair, but the results were always the same. The hair always grew back, and the treated skin was not always left healthy.
It wasn’t until 1875 that Electrolysis was invented. Dr. Charles Michel, a St. Louis Ophthalmologist, devised a system to remove his patients ingrown eyelashes. Dr. Michel’s method is still used today, though, with significant technological improvements. Today's methods effectively destroy the hair growth cells, preventing further growth. Electrolysis has proven to be a breakthrough discovery. Medical experts agree that Electrolysis is the only safe, effective method of removing hair permanently.
Today’s marketplace is flooded with temporary hair removal methods, such as laser hair reduction, depilatories, waxing, and threading. They unfortunately have the same disadvantages as the ancient methods mentioned above, in that the hair grows back. Many of these methods can also increase hair growth over time.
For truly permanent hair removal, Electrolysis is the ONLY solution. It works on all body areas with the exception of inside of the ears and inside of the nose. With today’s advanced machinery, technology, and treatment protocols, Electrolysis is more effective and comfortable than ever before.
Electrolysis treats individual hair follicles, making the treatment non-invasive and a direct route to target the unwanted hair at the root. The Electrologist inserts a very fine probe into each hair follicle, one hair at a time. The client will then feel a slight heat sensation or snap, which will cauterize the hair bulb (Papilla), The papilla is the living portion of hair which grows and nurtures the hair strand. The hair is then removed with tweezers. Over time, the papilla is destroyed, the hair can NO longer grow.
