Frequently Asked Questions About Electrolysis

How does electrolysis work?

Electrolysis removes hair by targeting the germinative cell and bulge areas, ultimately rendering the follicle incapable of ever producing another hair in that area.

Why should I choose electrolysis over other methods?

Electrolysis is the only hair removal treatment recognized by the FDA as a permanent hair removal solution. There are other methods to remove unwanted hair, but none are as effective and permanent as electrolysis.

Is electrolysis permanent?

Electrolysis is the only FDA approved method of permanent hair removal. Once the germinative cell/bulge area is eradicated the hair will not grow back.

What areas can be treated?

Essentially any area of the body can be treated by electrolysis. It is recommended to avoid having electrolysis performed inside the nostrils or inside the ear canals.

How long has electrolysis been around?

Electrolysis has been around for more than one hundred and thirty years. Though the technology has changed over time, electrolysis has continued to be a proven method for permanent hair removal for more than a century.

How does electrolysis compare with other methods?

Electrolysis is the only proven method for permanent hair removal. Other methods of hair removal such as waxing, tweezing, and shaving are temporary and have to be repeated over and over again.

What about laser hair removal?

Lasers have been approved by the FDA as a method of hair reduction but not as a method for permanent hair removal. Electrolysis is an effective and permanent hair removal solution that can be performed on all skin and hair types. Laser treatments can only be performed on certain hair and skin types.

What can I do to make my treatments more effective?

Maintaining the scheduled appointments the electrologist has planned for you will help you to achieve your goal of permanent hair removal in a timely manner.
