For those clients seeking the permanent removal of unwanted hair, electrolysis is an excellent alternative to laser treatment, which can be ineffective at treating white, grey or blonde hair because of its lack of pigment.
Electrolysis hair removal
A very fine needle is used to pass a small amount of energy into the hair follicle. This creates heat, which destroys the cells at the base of the follicle that produce hair.
What can I expect?
We use only the best equipment for this procedure, Carlton Professional Ultrablend, which combines two effective methods of hair removal that simultaneously increase the success of the treatment.
• D.C – Galvanism
• R.F – Diathermy
How many Electrolysis treatments will I need?
Because hairs grow at different rates and time, a course of treatment will be necessary to reach all the hairs at the correct time in their growth cycle, between 10-15 treatments may be necessary.
Electrolysis is generally not recommended for large areas like the legs, bikini, or back. The most effective areas for electrolysis treatment are usually facial areas like the upper lip, chin, and cheeks, and it’s suitable for anyone young or old and all skin colours and types.
What alternatives are available?
If you have experienced electrolysis, you will know better than anybody about how lengthy and uncomfortable the process can be. With new advanced technology we can treat all skin and hair types effectively with no redness or irritation using an Intense Pulsed Light or a Laser.
You are probably thinking IPL or Laser hair removal is too expensive? Infact, IPL hair removal is very cost effective as a treatment area can be cleared in just 6 treatments. The number of treatments can vary depending on the skin and hair type. A thorough complimentary consultation will be needed to determine the exact course.
