Does electrolysis remove hair permanently?
Yes. Electrolysis eliminates the hair root so it will not grow back. To date, electrolysis is the only proven method of removing hair permanently.
Can hair be removed from anywhere on the body?
Unwanted hair can be safely removed from most body areas. The most common areas include the hairline, bridge of nose, eyebrows, upper and lower lip, cheeks, sideburns, chin, neck, shoulders, arms and underarms, hands, chest, breasts, abdomen, bikini line, legs, toes, and back.
How many treatments are necessary?
There are so many variables to consider when estimating the amount of time you may need for electrolysis. The variables include the amount of hair, the hair characteristics, the area of treatment, your tolerance, and the frequency & length of the sessions just to name a few. It is very challenging to answer this question without knowing these variables. We all have differing amounts of hair based on our ethnicity, age, etc. We also have different tolerances; some may fall asleep while we are working on them and others are more sensitive to treatment. Based on your tolerance, we may be able to use a high setting that results in a more efficient session or a low setting that results in a slower progressing session. By scheduling a free consultation, we can assess these variables and provide an estimate as to how long it will take to remove your hair. Remember, electrolysis is not the quickest form of hair removal but it is the most effective form of permanent hair removal.
How does electrolysis work?
The electrologist inserts a tiny metal probe into the hair follicle next to the hair. A small amount of electrical current is applied through the probe to completely eliminate the hair root. When a skilled, properly trained electrologist performs this procedure, there is no damage to the surrounding tissue.
Does electrolysis hurt?
Most people say the sensation is similar to that of tweezing. Individuals vary. Some may notice mild discomfort (particularly on certain sensitive parts of the body) and others may even nap during electrolysis. The state-of-the-art equipment we use has greatly improved the procedure. Not only has the equipment made electrolysis more permanent, it has also made electrolysis more comfortable.
Is electrolysis only for women?
No, electrolysis is for everyone. Men also have superfluous hair (ears, eyebrows, bridge of the nose, beard, neck, shoulders, chest, back, etc.) that may cause feelings of embarrassment. Whether hair removal is for thinning out the hair or for completely removing it in chosen areas, the client's preferences guide treatment strategy.
Is electrolysis effective on people with dark skin?
Yes, electrolysis is effective on all skin and hair types. No other hair removal solution can claim such universal acceptability and success.
Is this facility TG friendly?

Is electrolysis safe?
