Frequently Asked Questions - About Electrology



What is Electrolysis?


Electrolysis is the oldest and original method of “Permanent Hair Removal”.  It has a long, safe and effective history dating back to 1875.  It is effective on all hair and skin types. 


Electrolysis is a series of treatments usually over a year and a half to a two year period providing the scheduling is kept up.  Each area requires a certain amount of hours of treatment.  The most receptive hairs are in the “Anagen Stage” of growth.  Anagen is the active growth phase of hair follicles. Most hair follicles are in the anagen stage at any given time.


Frequently Ask Questions…


Does Electrolysis Hurt?

Yes some areas are, but again, if it is uncomfortable a topical prescription makes a big difference. For many the appearance of the unwanted hair is more painful to look at than the electrolysis treatment itself.


Is Electrolysis done with needles?

Yes, they are TINY filaments that slide into the hair follicle alongside the hair. The skin is not broken the needle enters an existing opening. The needles are sterile, disposable, individually wrapped and opened in your presence.


What will my skin look like afterwards?

All of the possible skin reactions include redness, puffiness, and after a few days a tiny pustule may appear or a tiny scab.  This is temporary and the skin heals beautifully. An antiseptic such as witch hazel, and an antibiotic cream helps in healing.  As time goes by the skin gets use to electrolysis and there is

minimal, if any skin reaction.


Is Electrolysis really permanent?

Yes, it is.  It is not a one treatment procedure, it requires several treatments.  I tell patients their hair will dictate when they will need to come in.
