FAQ's

Frequently Asked Questions

HOW IS HAIR REMOVED BY ELECTROLYSIS?

A tiny, metal probe is gently inserted into one of the natural openings on the skin surface from which the hair is growing. With the probe in place, a small amount of electrical energy is immediately applied below the surface of the skin into the follicular structure. The hair then slides out easily as it is removed.​

IS ELECTROLYSIS REALLY PERMANENT?
Yes. The permanent hair removal process of electrolysis uses electrical energy therapeutically to prevent the regenerative ability of hair follicles to produce hair. Since its earliest beginnings in 1875, electrolysis has stood the test of time and is the only proven method for removing any and all hair permanently.
IS ELECTROLYSIS SAFE?
Definitely. For over one hundred years, electrolysis has a long history of safe and permanent effectiveness when performed by a qualified professional electrologist. In this office, modern, state of the art, computerized equipment is used to perform comfortable electrolysis treatment with successful permanent results.

 Additionally, the “Infection Control Standards For The Practice of Electrology,” which was developed by the American Electrology Association (with the assistance of the Centers for Disease Control, in Atlanta, Georgia) is followed in strict compliance. Committed to providing maximum protection against the transmission of any kind of infectious disease, patient safety is never taken lightly. Only pre-sterilized, disposable probes are used and then discarded appropriately after each electrolysis treatment.  Close attention is given to many other infection control measures (such as handwashing, use of gloves, and cleaning and sterilization of instruments, to name but a few) in order that a proper hygienic environment is maintained at all times.
IS ELECTROLYSIS PAINFUL?
The sensation seems similar to a warm tweeze. Patients of all ages, from teenagers to the elderly, find the brief sensation of heat to be quite tolerable. It is really a very minor discomfort when you consider the lasting results it can achieve for you: soft, clear, hair free skin.​
ARE THERE DIFFERENT METHODS OF ELECTROLYSIS?
Yes, there are three. These methods of electrolysis always require the use of one or more probes and encompass the utilization of two electrical currents. The two electrical currents, electrolysis or direct current (DC) and thermolysis or alternating current (AC), are either applied separately or blended. Hence, the three methods of electrolysis-which all accomplish permanent hair removal.
WHAT CAUSES THE GROWTH OF EXCESS HAIR?
Hormone changes in the body that create an excess of androgens (male sex hormones) can initiate the growth of excess hair that is medically referred to as hirsutism. Normal physiological changes such as puberty, pregnancy or menopause can create unwanted hair growth for some individuals. In addition, surgical menopause, medications, emotional stress, and illness can also be factors. If you have any concerns or your hair problem is severe, it is prudent to see a physician who specializes in reproductive endocrinology for evaluation. It should be noted that when medical treatment is successful, it will prevent the progression of hirsutism but will not eliminate the existing excess hair. Electrolysis will still be required to permanently remove the existing excess hair, particularly if it is of a coarse type.​
IS ELECTROLYSIS EXPENSIVE?
When you compare the cost of electrolysis with other heath and beauty treatments, it is very affordable. A price cannot be placed on the confidence and enjoyment received over a lifetime by the absence of unsightly, unwanted hair.​
