Visage also specializes in electrolysis, the original permanent hair reduction treatment. Using a very fine needle a gentle electric current is delivered to the base of the hair follicle to cut off the blood supply.
Although IPL is much faster and treats a larger area in one session, a lot of our clients fall back onto this reliable method to treat white hairs, or hair that is too light and fine to be effectively reduced by the pulsed light.
Electrolysis is charged by time ranging from £7.00 for 5 minutes to £28 for a 1 hour session. Before Visage began offering IPL it was one of the top electrolysis clinics in Nottingham, generally performing up to 5-6 hours treatment per day. Even now, although the majority of customers opt for IPL, we still see many patients who find electrolysis suits them better.
Some people have found IPL/laser ineffective or their skin tone is unsuitable for these methods. Visage has also helped treat transsexual clients whilst hormone levels are being balanced.
