The reality is that hair removal can take up a lot of your precious time. It’s also a tedious task that you may try to avoid as much as possible. The good news is you don’t have to rely on shaving, waxing, or bleaching to remove unwanted hair. With electrolysis, you can remove your hair permanently and enjoy smooth skin without the hassle. If you’re wondering how much electrolysis hair removal costs, keep reading.
The length of your treatment session will usually dictate the cost of electrolysis. However, you can expect to pay anywhere from $30 to $100 a session. If your goal is to remove hair from your legs, for example, you can expect to pay more than if you’d like to get rid of hair on your chin.
During a consultation, our electrologist can design a customized treatment plan and provide you with an accurate price quote.
How Electrolysis Works
During an electrolysis treatment, you can expect the electrologist to insert a very fine needle into the natural openings of your hair follicles. Then, they’ll apply an electrical current to destroy your hair growth cells.
Although you may experience a heat sensation or pinch, you can expect pain and discomfort to be minimal. Believe it or not, you are welcome to listen to music, read, or even take a nap during treatment. While you may notice some swelling and tenderness after treatment, these side effects should subside on their own within a few hours.
Our staff discourages tanning, excessive sweating, makeup application, or prolonged sun exposure for the first 24 hours following treatment as these activities may irritate the skin.
Good Candidates for Electrolysis
If you have unwanted hair that you’re tired of removing on your own through shaving, waxing, and other hair removal treatments, electrolysis may be the ideal option. Electrolysis treatment is a process and you should be okay with visiting our office for multiple appointments. A consultation with our electrologist is the perfect time to determine whether or not electrolysis makes sense for you.
