Electrolysis is a form of electrical epilation that involves the insertion of a narrow probe into the hair follicle. The probe delivers an electrical current which triggers a chemical and heat reaction that destroys the hair’s root, and prevents it from growing back in the future. Hair grows in cycles, so it is impossible to remove all of the hair in one area of the body in one session. Several hairs will be treated each time you’re asked to come to the salon, and a commitment to regular appointments is essential to catch all the hairs in any one area.
Unlike laser, electrolysis hair removal is independent of hair colour; therefore, blonde, white and grey hair types can be treated. This process of hair removal is very skilled and takes time; it’s most suitable for smaller areas or sensitive areas with fewer hairs.
Needle-type electrolysis is the only practice that can permanently remove hair, regardless of the skin type. Depending on the treated area and the patient’s pain tolerance, a treatment session might last anywhere from 30 minutes to more than 2 hours.
Who is electrolysis hair removal suitable for?
Whether you have a few stray hairs, or more significant excess hair growth, we can discuss a suitable treatment plan for you. Common causes for sudden and unwanted hair growth include: genetic or ethnic predisposition, stress / anxiety or worry, hormonal imbalance – puberty, pregnancy, menopause, disease of the pituitary / thyroid / adrenal glands, cyst on certain glands, removal of certain glands (eg ovary) and reaction to certain drugs.
Is electrolysis hair removal safe?
This treatment is considered to be very safe. The risks of treatment are significantly lowered if you choose a reputable, certified establishment (such as Beau Boutique Salon) where professionally trained therapists carry out the procedure.
Is electrolysis hair removal painful?
This treatment doesn’t often cause too much discomfort, usually just a tingling sensation. However, Beau Boutique Salon will discuss the use of a topical anaesthetic during the consultation as we recognise that each client has their own level of tolerance.
Are there any side effects or risks?
Immediately after treatment the skin can look red, and feel slightly more sensitive than normal. These effects are to be expected and will usually have disappeared within 24 hours. There may be a slight risk of infection, but this is uncommon and can depend on how carefully you follow aftercare instructions.
What results can I expect?
Results can vary from client to client. As several sessions are usually required, smooth, hair-free skin may take some months to fully develop. A course of treatments is required to ensure the area is fully addressed and allows for the hair growth cycle to play out.
I’ve been coming to Charmaine for 3 years now to have semi permanent make up on my eyebrows and every time she does an excellent job, she is always welcoming and the salon is beautiful. I would highly recommend this treatment.
