Electrolysis & Permanent Hair Removal

The Methods we offer:


Thermolysis: 

Uses heat to destroy the hair follicle, this would be the weakest method to apply.


Galvanic: 

Uses a chemical reaction in the hair follicle to destroy it.  This method takes 3-5 minutes per insertion, we use this multi-needle method for areas like bikini, underarms, breast hair, ab trail, chest and back.


Blend: 

Uses both heat and chemical reaction to destroy the hair follicle, this method applies a medium strength, and works great on facial hair, because most areas on the face can tolerate this treatment very well.


Pricing:

60 minute appointment begins at $75

Pricing for shorter appointments are available, please call for more information.


Electrolysis Consultation

At the time of your appointment we offer a FREE 15 minute consultation to see which of the three methods we provide will work best for you. At that time we can explain the different methods in detail.  The method we choose to use depends on how strong the hair is, where the hair is located, and how sensitive you are. Our clinic is TG Friendly.

 

About Electrolysis

Before 1875 electrolysis did not exist.  Many temporary methods of dealing with unwanted hair were employed from pumice and quicklime to elaborate potions and poultices, but the results ere always disappointing to the users.  The hair came back!

Then in 1875, Dr. Charles Michel, an ophthalmologist, was experimenting with ways to remove the painful ingrown eyelashes of his patients.  He would insert a fine wire, which was attached to a battery, into the hair follicle and then release a small amount of current.  He found that the current which flowed into the hair follicle destroyed the hair forever.  Electrolysis had been born, and the thousands of men and women plagued with unwanted hair could now be helped.  What once appeared to be a hopeless situation now had a solution.  From then until the present, electrolysis has stood the test of time.  It is fully accepted by medical doctors and is recognized as the only safe and effective form of permanent hair removal.

How Electrolysis works

An electrolysis treatment involves the inserting of a sterile probe, the same size as the hair, into the hair follicle opening down to the DERMAL PAPILLA.  The dermal papila is the electrologist’s target.  It is the part of the follicle that contains blood and nerves and feeds the growing hair. If the papila and the regenerative cells surrounding it are destroyed, the hair will die.  When the probe is in place, a low-level electrical current is applied that will destroy the papilla and surrounding cells and loosen the hair in the follicle.  The hair is then removed.


Many hairs will be eliminated with only one treatment, but some will need two or more treatments to achieve permanency.  Electrolysis involves 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, but once the dermal papilla has been eliminated, the hair is dead and will not regrow.


Electrolysis is the only form of permanent hair removal recognized by the American Medical Association.
