Electrolysis

scan0001Electrolysis is performed by the electrologist inserting a very fine, sterile probe alongside the hair in the hair follicle.  A very slight amount of electrical current is applied through this probe, which destroys the hair root, ending further hair growth.

The skin is not punctured or harmed in any way, and for most people the entire process causes very little discomfort. Most patients report tweezing and waxing to be much more uncomfortable than electrolysis.The way that hair removal works for laser or electrolysis is the same.

 

 

All hair is in 3 different stages of growth.  Hair-ChartThe hair can only be killed in the first stage of growth. The second and third stage of growth is dormant, with no bulb present for you to kill. The first stage of growth has a big juicy bulb and that is what where the electrolysis zaps with electricity. Therefore you are only killing a percentage of hair with each treatment. Thus requiring anywhere from 8 to 14 treatments or a year and a half of electrolysis for eyebrows.
