Electrolysis Hair Removal FAQ:
We seek to educate our clients on our permanent hair removal processes so that you feel comfortable and ready for your free consultation.
What is Electrolysis Hair Removal?
Electrolysis is permanent hair removal. Regardless of the cause, heredity, metabolism, or hormones, electrolysis hair removal will provide permanent results.
How Does Electrolysis Work?
A sterile probe is inserted into the hair follicle and a small amount of electrical current is released, this damages the area where the follicle gets its nourishment, the hair is then removed with tweezers.
Is Electrolysis Hair Removal Really Permanent?
Electrolysis hair removal is the only permanent hair removal alternative to a lifetime of temporary hair removal. Electrolysis destroys the growth cells preventing hair growth in the future because the follicle is inactivated. Electrolysis has been scientifically proven and is in the medical journals as the only method of permanent hair removal.
Is Electrolysis Hair Removal a New Procedure?
Electrolysis is not a new procedure – it was developed in 1875 by an ophthalmologist, Dr. Charles Michel, to treat ingrown eyelashes. Electrolysis hair removal is now used throughout the world as the only method of permanent hair removal. See this article on the Hair Facts website:
Will Electrolysis Work for Me?
Electrolysis is safe and effective for all hair, regardless of type or color. It is also a safe and effective permanent hair removal procedure for any part of the face or body.
Is All Electrolysis The Same?
There are three types of electrolysis hair removal used today:
- Galvanic, a direct electrical current that produces a chemical reaction causing sodium hydroxide to be formed in the follicle,
- Thermolysis, an alternating current that produces heat in the follicle, and
- Blend, combines galvanic and thermolysis currents to produce heated sodium hydroxide in the follicle.
All three modalities destroy the hair growth cells and result in permanent hair removal.
How Many Treatments are Required?
Electrolysis hair removal requires a series of treatments because all hair grows in stages. The number of treatments depends on several factors, which include density and thickness of the hair, previous temporary removal methods, ability to tolerate the current etc.
Humans have hair that grows perpetually, otherwise, we would have a shedding cycle similar to pets, for this reason, there is more hair than what is evident at any one point in time. This factor plays into the amount of time required to treat an area. With regular appointments, the hair removal process usually takes 12 to 18 months.
What Does Electrolysis Feel Like?
Electrolysis hair removal feels similar to a heat or pinching sensation. Some areas of the body are more sensitive than others and tolerance varies from person to person. Topical anesthetics may be used for individuals who feel the need to minimize the sensation during treatments.
What are The Side Effects of Electrolysis?
With proper aftercare there are no long-term side effects. Temporary reactions could include redness, swelling, and tenderness, but they all subside.
Why Do People Get Electrolysis Hair Removal?
Temporary hair removal takes time out of our day and many people find it more convenient to have their hair removed permanently so they don’t have to deal with unwanted hair. Another common reason for having electrolysis hair removal treatments is that overtime, unwanted hair can impair self esteem. If unwanted hair gets in the way of your confidence or self-expression, contact us, we can help you rid yourself of unwanted hair once and for all.
Are Electrolysis Clinics Licensed?
Electrolysis hair removal is not a regulated profession so it is up to the consumer to find a qualified electrologist. We recommend that you book a consultation and take your questions with you. We offer a complimentary consultation where we explain the process of electrolysis, document your medical history and provide a sample treatment.
In the USA the Food and Drug Administration recognizes electrolysis hair removal as the only permanent hair removal method, unfortunately, Health Canada does not have a position on this matter so anyone can claim they provide permanent hair removal treatments. It is up to you to be an informed consumer.
Is Your Clinic Inspected?
Yes, we have passed all of our inspections. Electrolysis hair removal clinics are inspected by the local health unit only if they are aware of the facility, there could be facilities that are not inspected.
