You are about to make a commitment to yourself...to improve your personal appearance and self esteem...to free yourself from unwanted hair!
An electrolysis treatment involves inserting a sterile needle into the hair follicle and applying electrical current to destroy the hair growth cells.
Electrolysis is a series of treatments over a period of time. The length of time depends on the amount of hair, its coarseness, the cause of the excess hair and many other factors. Temporary methods of hair removal like waxing and tweezing can also make a minor problem worse. Heredity, hormone function, normal physiologic changes, certain medications and stress levels all influence the treatment program. It is very important to stay on a recommended treatment schedule to achieve the best results for you. Treatments will be more frequent in the beginning and less frequent later on.
There is some discomfort involved with the treatment. This also varies with the pain level of each individual person and also the area being treated. Immediately following the treatment there may be some slight redness which may last for a few hours.
Electrolysis is a very safe procedure. According to The Food and Drug Administration and The American Medical Association electrolysis is the ONLY method of permanent hair removal and has effectively been used for over 100 years.
