If you’re tired of unwanted hair, you don’t have to continue the tedious and time-consuming process of shaving, waxing, or bleaching. Electrolysis can permanently remove your hair and restore your confidence. Keep reading to learn how electrolysis hair removal works and whether it may be a good option for you.
What is Electrolysis?
During an electrolysis treatment, our expert provider will insert a very fine needle into the natural openings of your hair follicles along your hair shaft. Then, a tiny amount of electrical current will be applied so that your hair growth cells can be destroyed.
While you may feel a heat sensation or pinch, the discomfort will be minimal. You can even read, listen to music, or close your eyes and nap while you’re being treated. Right after treatment, you may face a bit of redness or tenderness, which will fade away within a few hours.
We’ll recommend that you avoid tanning, excessive sweating, makeup application, or prolonged sun exposure for the initial 24 hours after treatment as these activities can irritate the hair follicles.
You can count on our team to design a treatment plan that is custom-tailored to your unique needs. We’ll take the quantity and structure of your hair, previous use of hair removal methods, hormone function, medications, and stress into consideration when designing the plan. To enjoy optimal results, you’ll likely require multiple treatments.

Where Does Electrolysis Work?
Electrolysis can remove hair from essentially any area of your body. However, it’s most commonly used on the eyebrows, upper lip, cheeks, chin, chest, and abdomen. You can receive this treatment on multiple areas if you wish.
Good Candidates for Electrolysis
There are a number of individuals that may benefit from electrolysis. This treatment may be right for you if your hair is blonde, red, grey, brown, or black. It may also make sense if you have thick, thin, or a combination of thick and thin hairs.
If you are willing to come in for multiple appointments and ready to leave your days of waxing, shaving, and/or bleaching behind you, electrolysis is definitely worth considering.
