Electrolysis is a method of permanently removing individual hairs from the face or body. The only form of permanent hair removal approved by the FDA, medical electrolysis devices destroy the growth center of the hair with chemical (Galvanic current) or heat energy (Thermolysis). After a very fine probe is inserted into the hair follicle, the hair is removed with tweezers. In Electrolysis at Body Restoration Spa, we use Thermolysis.
Most areas of the body can be treated with Electrolysis, including the eyebrows, ears, face, abdomen, thighs, breasts, legs and back. There are generally no permanent side effects, but sometimes a temporary, slight reddening of the skin may occur.
Please note that Electrolysis does involve a series of treatments. If the hair in the area being treated has been tweezed for years, it will require more treatments since the hair is coarse and distorted.
If the hair being treated has not been tweezed, it will require less treatments due to the soft texture and shallow roots.
Electrolysis is a medically approved method of permanent hair removal. Only actively growing hairs and follicles are affected, several treatments are necessary.
The treatment works on actively growing hairs and follicles, not any of those that are dormant.
Possible risks associated with this treatment include but are not limited to:
The goal of the Electrolysis procedure is improvement in the appearance of unwanted hair.
Hair growth is the result of heredity and hormone levels. Also, some drugs, temporary methods of hair removal, and illnesses can stimulate hair growth. Electrolysis is an option when hair growth is in an area of the body where it may not be desired such as on a woman's upper lip, chin, or bikini line.
