What is Electrolysis?

27 Jul

Electrolysis is still recognized as the ONLY method of PERMANENT hair removal. In the hands of a well trained electrologist it is a perfectly safe and highly effective treatment. One of the 3 different methods of electrolysis will work on (and is suitable for) ALL hair types and colors and ALL skin types and colors.
For successful and effective results, each individual hair requires repeated treatments.  This is because each individual hair has its’ own growing cycle called Anagen, Catagen and Telogen. This is not unlike the ‘cycle of life’ with Anagen being the ‘alive’ and growing stage, Catagen the ‘collapsing’ stage where the hair collapses away from its source of food and nourishment (the dermal papilla) and the Telogen stage where the hair is ‘tired’ and dying and disconnected completely from its dermal papilla.  Successful treatment for electrolysis (and incidentally also laser and ipl) has to target the hair in Anagen to achieve optimum results as it is the destruction of the dermal papilla which is required. Therefore results are not immediate and take a little time… but electrolysis does work and it is permanent.
