ELECTROLYSIS IS A TIME-TESTED METHOD that was invented more than 100 years ago to remove irritating, in-grown eyelash hairs. Most areas of the body can be treated with electrolysis, including the eyebrows, face, thighs, abdomen, breasts, and legs. Electrolysis faced new competition in the 1990s after laser hair removal was developed and promoted as a quicker and easier way to remove hair. The Food and Drug Administration declared, laser and similar devices can only claim to reduce hair growth, not permanently remove it. Electrolysis is the only treatment that is considered permanent hair removal.

How does
Electrolysis work?

A solid hair-thin metal probe slides into each hair follicle at the same angle and depth as the hair being treated. Proper insertion does not puncture the skin. Electricity is delivered to the follicle through the probe, which causes localized damage to the areas that generate hairs, either through the formation of caustic lye (galvanic method), overheating (thermolysis method), or both (blend method).

How long will it take to see permanent results?

The success depends on the skill of the electrologist, the type of hair being removed, the condition of the skin and the pain threshold of the client. Electrolysis, when properly performed, can be thorough at destroying the hair matrix cells, and leaving follicles incapable of growing hair. Most practitioners will advise that complete removal of facial hair takes between 1 and 4 years, with an average treatment length of 2 years.
