Electrolysis permanently destroys germinating cells that are responsible for hair growth. A fine probe is accurately inserted into the hair follicle and the application of current is applied. This allows only the germinating cells to be destroyed without harm to the skin. The current is applied in as little as one- thousandth of a second, which allows many hairs to be treated quickly and effectively at each treatment.
The electrologist washes her hands and puts on latex free gloves. The area to be treated is cleaned with an astringent (a solution that cleans the skin and constricts the pores). The setting and technique to be used are programmed into the machine that creates the current. A pre-sterilized disposable probe is chosen and is put into the probe holder. The probe is expertly inserted into the natural opening of the skin (the pore) and the current is applied via a foot petal. The skin is not punctured and the insertion is not felt by the patient. The hair is released by the applied current and is then removed with tweezers. The electrologist continues with this process and removes all the hair in the area to be treated. It may seem like removing each hair individually would take a long time, but our skilled electrologists move along quickly and precisely. A post treatment cream is applied to the skin after the session is complete.
Electrolysis is the only way to permanently remove hair, but it can only be accomplished with a series of treatments. It is not possible to remove hair permanently with just one treatment. With each treatment the patient will notice that the hair becomes finer and softer and that less hair is present. The thickness of the hair, previous hair removal methods, heredity, medications, and stress are all factors that will influence how many treatments will be necessary to eliminate every hair permanently. As your treatments progress, the time needed per treatment will be shortened and your frequency of treatments will decrease. When all the hair is gone in the treated area, your skin will be soft, smooth, and beautifully hair free forever.

Did you know?
If your electrologist can't see the hairs, they can't zap the hairs. Plucking, waxing, threading, or tweezing before your hair removal appointment reduces the number of hairs your electrologist can remove.
Did you know?
The hair you see is not all the hair you have. Hair grows in cycles. That's why it takes more than one appointment to permanently clear an area.
It's okay to shave between treatments, but never, ever tweeze!
For a more comfortable treatment, avoid caffeine for a few hours before your appointment.
Did you know?
Gently exfoliating your skin before your treatment opens up the follicles and lets the unwanted hair slide out more easily.
