We provide Electrolysis, which produces permanent hair removal through special techniques, by disrupting hair growth. The process works by inserting an epilator device into the skin. It uses shortwave radio frequencies in hair follicles to stop new hair from growing. This damages your hair follicles to prevent growth and causes existing hairs to fall out. However, you’ll still need multiple follow-up appointments for the best results. In addition to producing more permanent results, electrolysis is extremely versatile. It can help inhibit new hair growth for all skin and hair types. Electrolysis may also be used anywhere on the body, including the eyebrows.
If you continuously struggle with unwanted hair growth any where on your body and have tried and are tired of the temporary methods of laser, tweezing, and waxing.
Electrolysis involves the insertion of a fine pre-sterilized, disposable probe into the hair follicle. The skin is not punctured or harmed. Then a slight amount of current is then applied through the probe and this causes the follicle to coagulate. Afterwards the hair can be removed with a tweezer by our certified licensed Electrologist.
Electrolysis is a hair removal technique that uses galvanic current (direct current) to produce a physico-chemical reaction, i.e. to break down compound substances.
It breaks down water and salt molecules contained in the follicle to create a new substance, lye (NaOH), which is corrosive, thereby leading to the destruction of cells and tissues responsible for hair growth.
Our electrolysis treatments are provided by a time based system:
15 minute session is $40.00.
30 minute session is $75.00.
45 minute session is $110.00.
60 minute session is $140.00.
For most people, today’s methods don’t cause a lot of pain. Your Electrologist controls the amount of current dispersed into the follicle and can monitor your confort level.
Most people report feeling a pinching feeling or a temporary heat sensation in the area where electrolysis is being done. The current that you feel is going to depend on your pain tolerance. Everyone is different, so it is hard to say how it will feel for everyone. Since this process involves removing the hair individually.
Depending on the area you want cleared, it could be a few 15 minute follow up treatments to several months of 60 minute treatments. Most people who follow the recommended treatment plan provided by the licensed Electrologist can expect to be completed or nearly completed within 18 months.
Electrolysis provides longer lasting results especially for darker skin tones. Laser does not work on darker skin tones because they target the pigment in the hair—it's the contrast between dark hair and lighter skin that helps the laser focus on its target—the ideal candidate has traditionally been someone with fair skin and dark hair.
Electrolysis is the only FDA approved method to permenantly remove hair.
Almost all areas of the body can be subject to unwelcome hair growth. For women, the unwanted hair on commonly visible areas, like the face, usually takes priority.
Hair growth on the chin, upper lip, jaw, and throat areas is usually caused by hormones, whether imbalanced or not. Genetics and medications can also cause excess hair on the face and on body areas such as the chest, breasts and abdomen.
The most commonly treated areas for women are:
Chin - Jawline - Upper lip - Throat - Sides of face - Eyebrows - Chest - Abdomen - Breasts - Bikini lines - Underarms - Hairline - Fingers and toes.
Many men who feel they have too much hair seek electrolysis treatment. Even without an excess amount of hair, electrolysis is frequently used for eyebrow shaping as well as underarms, groin, arms and legs, lower back and buttocks. Men also receive treatments on their ears, eyebrows, beard-lines, chests, backs and genitals.
The most commonly treated areas for men are:
Back (including shoulders and torso) - Ears - Brows - Cheeks (to clean up beard line) - Neckline - Nape - Groin - Hands.
Curly hair is more prone to become ingrown or cause raised bumps on your skin. Coarse hair gets stuck underneath the skin. Attempting to manage these problems by temporary methods such as depilatories, shaving, or tweezing can just make them worse, causing scarring or discolored areas. These methods are very hard on your skin.
If you have dark skin, you have a higher likelihood of having this type of facial or body hair, but it can appear with any skin tone. Straight hair can also become ingrown.
Electrolysis safely and permanently removes ingrown hairs and the curly, coarse hairs that tend to damage your skin without creating issues that occur with tweezing and other temporary methods of hair removal.
The bikini area is perhaps the most sensitive part of your skin, so it needs the best care possible.
Different parts of your body have different sensitivities. So while receiving electrolysis on your bikini area, you should keep in mind that this area may be sensitive. The current level may not be the same as getting treatment on your legs, but your electrologist can control the current to maintain comfort.
