Is Electrolysis Dangerous?


The amount of electrical current used is extremely small and poses no hazard. Electrolysis is mechanically safe and controlled at every stage of its application. How Many Treatments Does It Take? Many hairs will be eliminated with only one treatment, but some will need two or more treatments to achieve permanency. Electrolysis involves a series of treatments over a period of 1-3 months. The overall length of time depends on the amount of hair, its coarseness, the cause of the excess hair, but once the dermal papilla has been eliminated, the hair is dead and will not grow again. Is Electrolysis Painful? Electrolysis rarely causes discomfort. If it does, adjustments can be made to the machine which will totally eliminate any sensation (although the length of the treatment will be increased proportionately). The sensation is less than in tweezing. Most patients are surprised as they expect to feel much more. Some patients even relax enough to fall asleep. Is it Hard or Painful to Insert t
