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.

As anyone who’s watched Seinfeld can tell you, double-dipping is bad etiquette.

It’s true at a social gathering, and it’s true when you’re getting a bikini wax.

If you’re searching for a bargain-priced Brazilian bikini wax, keep in mind that a place can’t possibly have hundreds of sticks at their disposal. If they did, they wouldn’t be able to make enough money to stay open.

The waxing at Body Restoration spa is priced accordingly so that you always have a clean and efficient waxing experience. We never double-dip our wax sticks, so the wax itself is never compromised. You’ll never receive a wax where the wax has been double-dipped with the same stick after touching someone’s skin and hair.

Why Do We Use Two Different Waxes?

Ever wonder why we not only use the Blue Wax (hard wax), which hardens and is removed by hand, but also a soft wax that relies on strips to remove it? The Blue Wax is formulated for coarse hair. It grabs thicker hair better than the soft wax, and it is reserved for areas where there is coarse hair like the bikini line and the underarms. It can also be used on the chin and the upper lip, especially in the corners of the mouth where hairs can be short and difficult to remove.
