Electrolysis is a method of removing individual hairs from the face or body. Today's medical electrolysis machines destroy the growth center of the hair with chemical or heat energy, using a very fine probe is inserted into the hair follicle, then the individual hair is removed with tweezers.
Hair growth is the result of heredity and hormone levels. Also, some drugs, temporary methods of hair removal, and illnesses can stimulate hair growth.
Many factors influence hair growth, so you will need to return for several electrolysis visits. The total number of sessions needed to remove hair permanently from a particular area will vary from person to person. Most clients return once a week or every other week as needed. But the unwanted hair will be gone forever once the series of treatments is complete.
There are generally no permanent side effects, but sometimes a temporary, slight reddening of the skin may occur.
