We sit down with you to discuss your expectations and needs. Based upon your consultation we custom tailor a treatment plan to meet your goals. This consultation takes 20 to 30 minuets and includes details of the electrolysis process to give you an understanding of how the treatment works
We put your custom plan into effect offering convenient, flexible hours Monday to Sunday. If you wish you can begin treatment with a session following the free consultation.
We use three different methods of electrolysis:
This epilation technique produces localised heat to damage the hair root/follicle, using a high frequency, short wave diathermy current. This current is channelled through a very fine needle to the hair root area; the current is applied to each follicle for a few seconds.
This is the original method of epilation, using a galvanic current, which causes the salt and water in the hair follicle around the needle probe to be chemically altered, producing lye. Lye is the caustic substance that is the destructive ingredient in the galvanic technique. Lye dissolves the dermal papilla that causes hair growth. Galvanic has been perceived as being more effective than diathermy, although the method of hair removal takes longer than diathermy or blend. Lye can reach all parts of the hair follicle, as it's a fluid, so this means that distorted and curved follicles can be effectively treated.
The blend epilation technique, is literally what it's called, it's the blend of both the diathermy and galvanic currents. This technique is based on the theory that lye is more caustic when it is heated, so theoretically this should be the most effective technique. When heated the lye becomes more active and therefore gets into all areas of the follicle.The heat means the tissue surrounding the dermal papilla becomes more porous, the lye can then diffuse into it, making the treatment more effective. The blend of both the heat and chemical reaction means this treatment is less uncomfortable than diathermy alone, although it takes slightly longer.
We offer a proven method of follow up to maintain hair loss. Hair grows in cycles and is treated as it develops. The hair removal process is progressive, we treat each hair untill all the problem hair has been permanently removed.
How does electrolysis work?
A trained electrologist inserts a small metal probe into the hair follicle alongside the hair. A small amount of electric current is then delivered to the probe by a sensitive electronic device called an epilator. Depending on the technique used, the electric current destroys the hair root either by heat or chemical action and in some methods by both at the same time. Thermolysis Galvanic and Blend all three modalities are safe and effective. Your electrologist will choose the modality which is best for you.
Is electrolysis permanent?
Yes. All follicles properly treated will not grow another hair. Electrolysis has been shown to be permanent in over a century of use. Its permanency has been well recognized by knowledgeable physicians and is also testified to by hundreds of scientific articles published in the medical literature. In addition to scientific recognition, there are over one million happy and satisfied people who have solved a very personal and embarrassing problem with the help of electrolysis.
Is electrolysis safe?
Electrolysis has a 120 year history of safety and effectiveness. I am not aware of one case of significant disease being caused or transmitted because of electrolysis. Modern well-trained electrologists utilize the most up-to-date effective methods of sterilization, disinfection and antisepsis, and follow guidelines set up by a major electrolysis organizations. We are controlled and licensed by local government environmental health services. Don't hesitate to ask your electrologist about the scientific methods he/she uses to guarantee your safety.
Is electrolysis painful?
Whether there is any discomfort during electrolysis is quite variable depending on a patient's tolerance, machine settings, modality used, as well as other factors. During most treatments a definite sensation should be noticed. It has been variously described as a slight Heat, tingling or stinging sensation. Your electrologist is trained to work within the comfort tolerance of his/her patients. Do not hesitate to let him/her know what you are feeling.
What areas of the body can be treated?
Hair can be removed from almost any part of the body. Some common areas for women include the hairline, eyebrows, top of the nose, cheeks, sideburn area, upper and lower lip, chin, throat, neck, shoulders, back, chest, breasts, abdomen, arms, legs, bikini line, hands, feet, toes and fingers. Hair on the eyelashes, inside the nose and inside the ear canal are only treated under the supervision of a physician. Hairy moles may be treated with written permission from a physician. It is perfectly safe to treat pregnant women, but the breasts and abdomen are avoided after the sixth month of pregnancy. Men often have hair removed from the hairline, beard line, shoulders, back neck, chest ears and nose. Electrolysis is very helpful for treating ingrown hairs which frequently cause irritation in the beard area.
How long does electrolysis take to achieve permanency?
Electrolysis requires a series of treatments given over a period of time. The length of time varies from person to person and is dependent on many factors. The density and coarseness of the hair, as well as the total area to be treated, are very important. How well you tolerate treatments and the consistency of the treatment affect the overall success. The cause of the unwanted hair and the temporary methods of dealing with the hair in the past are also involved in the treatment time. Many hairs will be permanently removed after the first treatment while some require additional treatment to achieve permanency. Treatment will be more frequent in the beginning and less frequent later on. The overall results- permanent, hair-free skin, are usually well worth the time spent.
How do I select an electrologist?
There are many factors that might influence your choice of an electrologist. Many people ask their physician for a referral. Others rely on the recommendations of a friend. Many consult the telephone directory under Electrolysis or Permanent Hair Removal to find the electrologists in their area. To be assured of quality service, determine if your electrologist is licensed, nationally certified, is a member of a national professional association and a participant in continuing education. In the final analysis decide if you feel comfortable and confident with the electrologist you have chosen since electrolysis requires a series of treatment over a period of time.
Why should I choose electrolysis to solve my unwanted hair problem?
Electrolysis is the only method of ‘permanent hair removal’ recognised by the medical profession. Other methods of hair removal including laser treatment can only be describes as achieving a ‘permanent reduction’ of hair growth.
Time is a factor for choosing electrolysis in today's fast-paced world. Dealing with unwanted hair in a temporary way is tedious, costly, and never-ending. Permanent hair removal frees you from this daily routine.
Electrolysis also improves your physical appearance and self-image, lessens anxiety caused by the unwanted hair and helps you feel more attractive and socially acceptable. It is a choice that will enhance your own natural beauty and self-confidence.
Lastly, electrolysis has been proven safe and effective over many years of use and is recognized by physicians and the NHS. You can be confident that permanent hair removal will change your life in a positive and lasting way
