How is electrolysis done?


A thin wire probe is inserted into the hair follicle. Once inserted, the probe delivers an electrical current to destroy the hair root. Three different modalities may be used. Thermolysis uses radio frequency energy to produce heat that damages the hair root. Galvanic electrolysis uses a direct current to produce a chemical reaction that destroys the hair root. The blend method uses a combination of both thermolysis and galvanic electrolysis. Successful electrolysis is dependent on the skill of the electrologist. Does it hurt? Discomfort varies from person to person, but there is some pain involved in the form of a small zap. If desired, an anaesthetic cream can be used before the treatment to minimize any discomfort. What areas can be treated? Any area can be treated with electrolysis, including the face, neck, arms, underarms, chest, back, abdomen, bikini area, thighs and legs.
