About Electrolysis

Since Laser Hair Removal has taken the world by storm, you don’t hear about Electrolysis (a form of permanent hair removal) as much anymore. However, there are people who may not be candidates for Laser Hair Removal and still need to go the Electrolysis route. Laser Hair Removal requires a client to have fair skin and dark hair for it to be successful. If you have fair skin and light hair or brown skin and dark hair, you may not be successful with Laser Hair Removal. However, you are a perfect candidate for Electrolysis! Electrolysis is the only form of permanent hair removal approved by the FDA. Electrolysis is used to remove hair, follicle by follicle. After a very fine probe is inserted into the hair follicle, a short-wave current is sent to the hair follicle to destroy it. The hair is then removed with tweezers. In Electrolysis at Body Restoration Spa, we use Thermolysis.

An Electrologist (one who perform Electrolysis) is hard to come these days as Laser is more common. We have a veteran in the hair removal business as our Electrologist here at Body Restoration Spa. Her name is Ala. She was an Electrologist at a well-known Electrolysis center which recently closed their Philadelphia office. Ala is here Mondays and Tuesdays. You may schedule online or call the spa to schedule with Ala.

Why is the Blue Wax Hard to Find?

We waxed a client recently who had just visited Body Restoration Spa for the first time. She moved to Philadelphia seven years ago. She loved the Blue Wax and her wax tech in the city where she had previously lived used the Blue Wax. Brazilian waxes were never that painful for her until she moved to Philadelphia. She admitted that she had not consulted any online review sites as to where to get a Brazilian wax. She hopped from wax salon to wax salon enduring strip wax and had always inquired about the Blue Wax when speaking with her wax tech. She was told time and time again that “…the Blue Wax is horrible; it breaks the hairs at the surface and causes ingrown hairs.” However, all of these drawbacks seemed to be the result of strip wax, not the Blue. She realized she had taken the Blue Wax for granted and figured it was used everywhere prior to relocating to Philadelphia.
