Electrology is the science of permanent hair removal. Using state-of-the-art technology, a small amount of electricity is gently applied to the base of the hair follicle. This process destroys the hair growth tissue. Therefore, the regenerative ability of the hair follicle is permanently destroyed.
Electrolysis is more effective than ever before.
Why should I choose electrology over other hair removal methods?
Several methods of permanent hair removal are currently available to the consumer.
The term electrolysis is used to describe all methods of permanent hair removal. The electrolysis modality was the first method used to remove hair permanently back in 1875. The term electrolysis branded the process of permanent hair removal.
An Electrologist uses a very fine needle inserted into the natural opening of the hair follicle alongside the hair shaft. (Keep in mind how tiny hairs are.) A small amount of current is then applied to destroy the hair growth cells. Medical electrolysis devices destroy the hair growth cells with chemical or heat energy. All modalities equally destroy hair growth cells that causes hair growth. The modality used is the preference of the professional Electrologist.
THE THREE MODALITIES
GALVANIC is a chemical process. The current (DC) produces a chemical reaction in the hair follicle destroying the germanitive cells.
THERMOLYSIS (or short-wave) produces heat. When this AC current modality is used it heats and destroys the hair growth cells in the follicle.
THE BLEND METHOD combines galvanic DC current with thermolysis AC current. Thermolysis heats up the chemical reaction in the follicle destroying hair growth cells.
Why should I choose electrolysis over other temporary methods like Laser and waxing?
Unlike other hair removal methods, professionally performed Electrolysis destroys unwanted hair permanently with unsurpassed results. Also, it is used for the largest variety of skin and hair types. Laser promoters compare laser to electrolysis although laser hair removal is considered a temporary method. It has not been evaluated for long-term safety of the patient's skin and health.
Waxing,Threading and Tweezing are alike. However, ingrown hairs and discoloration may result. Eventually, these methods may cause an increase in hair growth. Depilatories can cause an irritation to the skin while the hair regrows quickly. These methods require a lifetime of maintenance.
Please Stop Plucking,Tweezing,Threading and Waxing!!!
Electrolysis has been the only proven method of permanent hair removal since 1875. Laser treatments have never been proven to result in permanent hair removal. With plucking, tweezing, threading and waxing, you are wasting your time and money because you are creating hormonal stimulation. When you pull hair out, it causes blood to rush to the hair root and surrounding area, stimulating the thin velus baby hairs (peach fuzz), bringing with it extra androgens. This is called hormonally stimulated hair. By doing these temporary methods, it stimulates growth and coarsening of surrounding hairs which grow back thicker and stronger.
In between electrolysis treatments one should shave. Shaving does not damage the root or the follicle nor does it cause hormonal stimulation. Shaving keeps 80% of the hair alive and it is these live hairs that we can successfully kill. Electrolysis is done with a fine filament inserted into each follicle cauterizing the blood supply, NOT creating more blood supply.
Electrolysis is used on all areas of the body to give you smooth, sleek, healthy looking skin.
No other solution claims such universal acceptability and success.
Do Electrologists follow appropriate Infection Control?
The American Electrology Association has written Standards for Infection Control following the most recent recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Association for Practitioners in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC).
How many treatments are required?
The number of treatments varies with each client. Treatments can range from 15 minutes to more than an hour depending on the area being treated. Factors such as hair growth cycles, the quantity and structure of hair presented, previous use of temporary hair removal methods, heredity, hormone function, certain medication and stress influence the treatment program. Electrolysis is effective on all skin and hair types. No other hair removal solution can claim such universal acceptability and success. It is important to follow the recommended treatment plan to achieve optimum results.
Are all hairs eliminated in one treatment or is regrowth to be expected?
Excessive hair growth, known as hirsutism can range from fine, to dark, coarse hair on the face and body. Deep, coarse hairs cannot always be eliminated with one treatment; thus, breaking down the hair growth cells may require addition treatments.
What does electrolysis feel like? Most clients find electrolysis to be a comfortable experience. With continually advancing technology, equipment and treatment protocols, Electrolysis is more comfortable and effective than ever before.
Does electrolysis have any side effects on the skin? Immediately following treatment, there may be slight redness. The amount will vary with each client.
Can unwanted hair be removed from anywhere on the body? Electrolysis works on all skin and hair types. We can remove hair from any area including the eyebrows, chin, upper and lower lip, jawline and sides of the face, breasts and underarms, abdomen, bikini line, legs, ears and back.
Can women begin or have electrolysis treatments during pregnancy? Unwanted hair can be caused by hormonal changes brought on by pregnancy. Electrolysis can be performed on any normal skin. This includes pregnant women. We suggest that you seek the advice of your physician before beginning treatment.
Can hairs be removed from moles? Electrolysis can be performed in most moles where States allow it. Electrologists require written approval from your physician.
Should I consider having electrolysis on the bikini area in the summer months? Electrolysis is perfectly safe to do all year round.
