Electrolysis

Short wave diathermy which is a safe and effective method of permanent hair removal. The treatment is approved by the medical profession and has been available for over 100 years.

Electrolysis involves the insertion of the sterile disposable fine probe into the hair follicle to the hairs root, a mild current is then passed down the needle to the tip to cauterise the hair root enabling the hair to be withdrawn.

If this is successful, the blood supply to the hair is cut off and the hair has no form of nutrition. Hairs will return finer and weaker to eventually cease growth.

How does Electrolysis feel?
The treatment is not generally painful although there may be some slight discomfort and a feeling of heat for a very short time only.

The Hair Growth Cycle
Normally hair will grow for 2-3 weeks on the face. After the growth period the hair becomes detached from the root and starts to move up the follicle. It then stops and falls out itself or is pushed out by a new hair. A hair is most treatable when at its deepest, strongest point of growth with plenty of moisture. Unfortunately this cannot be determined until the hair has been removed so there is no way of predicting when the hairs are at their most treatable stage of growth.

How long does it take?
Everyone is different but many people believe that after your first treatment the hair will never grow back. This is not the case unfortunately as treatments are progressive. After each treatment the hair gros back finer and fairer, taking longer to return until eventually it doesn't grow back at all.

If hair has been plucked previously or other methods of hair removal have been used then you may find that it takes longer to treat the hair.
