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.
