How safe is Electrolysis?Hair growth is the result of heredity and hormone levels. Also some drugs, temporary methods of hair removal, some health issues can stimulate hair growth. And did you know that during summer, because of the humidity, hair grows faster?
Chemical depilatories (liquids or creams) are often used to remove body hair. These products contain irritating chemicals and can be time-consuming and messy. Likewise, bleaches contain harsh chemicals and do little to disguise dark hair. They may also discolor skin. Waxing is another temporary method of hair removal and is usually done in salons; it can be painful and costly. Home waxing kits are available, but they can be messy and difficult to use.
The FDA and the American Medical Association recognize only Electrolysis as a Permanent method of removing hair in any area of the body and on every skin type.
There are generally no permanent side effects and in most cases electrolysis does not cause much discomfort. Modern electrolysis methods have reduced the discomfort to a mere tingling. A topical anesthetic cream may be used in some cases.
Immediately following treatment, there may be a temporary redness or tenderness, which varies with each individual and dissolves in the next 10-20 min. We advise our patients to follow the after treatment instructions for better results and better healing.
One of the best ways to find good services is to ask friends and family as well as your doctor for recommendations. If you know anybody who has undergone electrolysis, ask for his or her input.
A consultation/evaluation is of great importance for both us as professionals and our clients to get a better comprehension of how electrolysis works and to answer all their questions: how the procedure will feel; how many visits will be likely needed; how much each visit costs; how long each session lasts etc.
At Hairless we follow the guide lines and go above it to make the environment safe for our clients and technicians alike. Sterilization, lab testing, disposables gloves, hand hygiene, follow-up education seminars are all in our agenda to always have impeccable surroundings and competent care.
Electrolysis is the process by which the electrologist first gently slides a probe along side the hair follicle with minimal discomfort to the client. Once the probe is correctly inserted down to the base of the follicle, the Electrologist then apply the current to destroy the dermal-papilla (stem cells) and cauterize the capillary vessels that feed them .Almost all of the areas of the body can be treated with electrolysis, including the eyebrows, face, abdomen, thighs, breasts, and legs.
