Electrolysis Hair Removal Benefits and Tips


Electrolysis and laser hair epilation are the two main methods which are used as the permannt hair removal methods. Electrolysis involves the insertion of a small fine needle into the hair follicle, followed by a small electrical current that damages and eventually destroys the hair follicle. There are 3 different methods to perform electrolysis: Galvanic electrolysis, Thermolysis and Blend method.

General percention about Electrolysis

Electrolysis is painful - The truth is, electrolysis usually does not cause any discomfort. Modern electrolysis methods have reduced any discomfort to a mere tingling. A topical anesthetic may be used in some cases.

The electric tweezer method is permanent. The truth is, the FDA and the AMA recognize only electrolysis as a permanent method of removing hair. In fact, some states prohibit those who use the electric tweezer which can also be purchased for consumer use from claiming it provides permanent hair removal.

Important Facts About Electrolysis

Electrolysis is a time-tested method that was invented more than 100 years ago to remove irritating, in-grown eyelash hairs. Most areas of the body can be treated with electrolysis, including the eyebrows, face, thighs, abdomen, breasts, and legs.

There are no permanent side effects. Sometimes, a slight reddening of the skin occurs during or immediately after treatment, but this will only last for a short time. Electrolysis is very safe and, unlike depilatories or bleaches, no harsh chemicals are used.

Advantages of using Electrolysis

  • By far the best and longest track record of results.
  • Over 125 years of clinically proven safety and effectiveness.
  • Disadvantages
  • Can be expensive.
  • Can be painful.
  • Can be tedious.
  • Can be difficult for large amounts of hair.
  • If done improperly, it can result in:
  • partial to full regrowth
  • lasting skin damage
  • spread of infection

Regulation varies by state, so inadequate controls exist to ensure competent practitioners. Regrowth rates have not been accurately established and cannot be predicted due to numerous variables. Some consumers do not respond to treatment.

Who can perform electrolysis?

Anyone wanting to remove unwanted hair can be a candidate for electrolysis. For men and women electrolysis is usually a safe and permanent process of hair removal. However it should not be used for patients with pacemakers because it can interrupt the electronics to cause potentially dangerous heart rhythms.
