Unwanted hair is a common problem affecting most women to varying degrees throughout their lives and prompting the use of various temporary methods of hair reduction or management systems. However electrolysis is still the only proven permanent method of hair removal and many women and indeed men, have benefited from this tried and trusted treatment.
What is Electrolysis?
Electrolysis is a safe, effective, progressive and permanent method of removing unwanted hair. Indeed it is the only truly permanent method of hair removal and is therefore one of our most requested treatments we perform here at Perfection.
How does Electrolysis work?
A fine probe (about the size of an eyelash) is inserted into the hair follicle where a tiny burst of energy is targeted at the root of the hair. This prevents nutrients feeding the hair and the hair becomes weaker and finer. After repeated treatments the hair is no longer able to grow and complete hair-free results are obtained.
Each hair requires repeated treatment because each individual hair has it’s own growing cycle and blood supply. Electrolysis works by weakening the hair and eventually destroying it. results take a little longer time, but just like ‘dieting’, it is not the ‘crash diet’ but the ‘healthy eating plan’ that works in the long run.
Is Electrolysis safe?
Electrolysis was first invented in 1875 and is proven effective and totally safe. Advancing technology has meant electrolysis has become more gentle and comfortable, even more effective and remains an affordable, modern treatment increasingly popular today. Equally effective as a stand alone treatment, or as part of a programme of support for hair management systems such as IPL or Laser. One thing is sure, electrolysis will work for you.
What will happen during the first appointment?
You will have a thorough consultation to ensure treatment is suitable and a recommended treatment plan will be discussed.
