Everyone wants smooth glowing healthy skin. If you are ready to stop tweezing, shaving, waxing or using topical hair removal products make an appointment for an electrolysis consultation. Electrolysis is a way of removing individual hairs from the face or body. Today's medical electrolysis devices, called epilators, destroy the growth center of the hair. A very fine probe is inserted into the hair follicle and electrical current is applied, then the hair is removed harmlessly with forceps. It is the only FDA approved method of permanent hair removal and is effective on all skin colors.
Typically, hair growth is very desirable. Yet when the hair growth is on the wrong part of the body like a females, upper lip, chin, sideburn area, chest or hands you should consider electrolysis as a viable option. Hair growth is the result of heredity and hormone levels. Furthermore, temporary methods of hair removal, a variety of drugs, and some illnesses can stimulate hair growth.
Since many factors influence hair growth, you will need to return for several visits. The total number of sessions needed to remove hair permanently from a particular area will vary from person to person. Most clients return weekly or every other week as needed. But the unwanted hair will be gone once the series of treatments have been completed. Each treatment lasts between 15 minutes to 30 minutes.
