Electrolysis is a time-tested method of hair removal and is the only method recognized by the FDA as “Permanent Hair Removal”. It can be used on all areas of the face and body including the eyebrows and hairline, and can be used on all hair and skin colors
Electrolysis can be used on many parts of the body.
The treatment is performed by inserting a fine probe into the hair follicle (a natural opening in the skin), the electrical current is applied and the hair is removed with tweezers. The hair slides out of the follicle and is not tweezed. Today's methods of Electrolysis combine two types of electrical current that destroy the hair growth cells with the use of chemical and/or heat energy. When both are used concurrently, the method is called "The Blend".
Causes of Hair Growth
Hormones, heredity and certain medications may cause hair growth.
