What is elec­trol­y­sis?

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - BEAUTY HEALTH & WELL BEING -

Su­per­flu­ous hair, al­though quite nat­u­ral, is a prob­lem for many women. Elec­trol­y­sis is the only proven method of per­ma­nent hair re­moval and it in­volves the in­ser­tion of a line nee­dle into the hair fol­li­cle to the hair root.

Elec­trol­y­sis uses a mild cur­rent which is then passed down the nee­dle to the tip to cau­ter­ize the hair root en­abling the hair to be with­drawn.

The elec­trol­y­sis process only takes a few sec­onds. Can it be per­formed on any part of the body? Some of the ar­eas where su­per­flu­ous hair can be­come a prob­lem and which are suit­able for hair re­moval treat­ment are fa­cial ar­eas, up­per lip, chin, neck, sides of the face, low hair line, thick eye­brows, be­tween the brows, eye­brow shap­ing, arms, un­der­arms, legs, thighs, bikini line, ab­domen, back and shoul­ders, fin­gers and toes.

How will it feel? Elec­trol­y­sis hair re­moval is not gen­er­ally painful al­though there may be some slight dis­com­fort and oc­ca­sion­ally a feel­ing of heat for a short time. There may also be a slight red­ness.

Spe­cially for­mu­lated sooth­ing lo­tions are avail­able for use af­ter treat­ment. De­pend­ing on how much su­per­flu­ous hair needs to be re­moved you may re­quire elec­trol­y­sis ses­sions weekly or fort­nightly, ex­tend­ing to in­ter­vals of three weeks or six weeks be­tween treat­ments un­til fi­nally only check-up treat­ments once a year will be all that is re­quired.

At the ini­tial con­sul­ta­tion your elec­trol­o­gist will be able to give you an es­ti­ma­tion of the num­ber of ses­sions nec­es­sary.
