What it Electrolysis?
Electrolysis is the only method of permanent hair removal that is medically approved as well as safe and effective. A small wire filament is inserted into the hair follicle. An electric current is passed through the needle and destroys the source of nourishment for hair growth. The hair is loosened and drawn out with tweezers.
Is Electrolysis Painful?
Most people can tolerate electrolysis and many find it more comfortable than waxing. Some clients have even fallen asleep during treatment. The skin itself is not pierced but a wire filament no longer than the hair is inserted directly into the hair follicle. The hair follicle is a natural opening on the skin’s surface. Most people experience little to no discomfort when the wire filament is inserted or when the hair is being removed with tweezers.
