FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How does electrolysis work? Is it safe?

This time-tested hair removal method has been proven as an extremely safe procedure, and as a California State Licensed Electrologist, I follow all standards of infection and safety control.


An electrolysis treatment begins with the insertion of a tiny probe into your hair follicle (a natural opening in the skin). A small amount of current is delivered to the base of the hair, cutting off the blood supply so that the follicle can no longer produce hair. The treated hair releases and is removed with tweezers. This process is repeated hair-by-hair until the desired area is cleared.

Will it hurt?

Most clients find electrolysis very tolerable. While sensation varies from person to person, many describe the feeling of electrolysis as a “zap,” pinch, or warming sensation. Some body areas are more sensitive than others, so topical numbing creams, as well as a variety of settings, are available for a more comfortable experience.

What body parts do you treat?

Below are some common areas to treat with electrolysis. If you don’t see yours on the list, please get in touch to inquire!

 

Chin, Sideburns/Cheeks, Upper Lip, Eyebrows, Hairline/Neck, Arms/Shoulders, Chest/Breasts/Nipples,  Stomach, Legs/Thighs, Fingers & Toes.

How long will this take?

You didn’t grow your hair overnight, so we can’t get rid of everything in one appointment, either.

Electrolysis is a commitment, and the number of treatments needed vary with each client. Sessions can range from 15 minutes to more than an hour depending on the area being treated. Most body parts take 1-2 years with shorter, less frequent appointments as you progress through treatment.

Factors such as hair cycles, quantity of hair, previous hair removal methods, hormones, medications, and genetics influence the treatment plan for each client.

The great news? No matter who you are, electrolysis works if you commit to the process!
