FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How does electrolysis work? Is it safe?

How does electrolysis work? Is it safe?

 

An electrolysis treatment begins with the insertion of a tiny sterile disposable probe into the pore (a natural opening in the skin) from which the hair is growing.  Each hair root is treated individually with a controlled amount of heat causing destruction of the hair's regenerative cells. When the regenerative cells are adequately destroyed then the follicle can no longer produce hair,. The treated hair then is lifted out of the follicle. This process is repeated hair-by-hair until the desired area is cleared. This time-tested hair removal method has been proven as an extremely safe procedure, and as a Kansas State Licensed Electrologist & as a Board Certified Professional Electrologist (CPE) I follow established standards of practice for infection and safety control.

Will it hurt?

The treatment has been described as a brief sensation of heat.

How many treatments will I need?

Each case is individual. The overall length, frequency and total number of treatments depends on many factors, including the density and texture of the hair, heredity, cause of the hair growth, hormonal conditions & past methods of removal. There should not be any tweezing/waxing/threading between treatments. 
 

Electrolysis needs a series of treatments to be effective. As you improve, the visits eventually get shorter in duration with longer periods of time between each visit. A crucial factor in the achievement of your goal is the maintenance of a regular treatment schedule, as necessitated by your hair growth.

How long will this take?

A total cost cannot be predetermined with accuracy because of the many variables. The cost of each visit is determined by the length of the treatment session. Please see the Services And Rates for more information.

Can all the visible hairs be removed in one visit?

This may or may not be possible depending on the density. diameter, area location and, the existing condition of your skin, the sensitivity of your skin and the response it has to electrolysis.
