Electrolysis Hair Removal

Electrolysis overview: Electrolysis is a technique that uses electrical beam to target a vulnerable area in each hair follicle and destroys the follicle permanently.

Electrolysis - Pros:Unlike any type of laser hair removal device, Electrolysis is the only technique that can work effectively on all type of skins and hair types, including white hair, red hair, blond hair, and dark skin.

Effective as a "clean up" of sparse hair that regrew in the months following a laser hair removal treatment.

Electrolysis - Cons: As the technique targets one hair follicle at a time, treatment of large body area or treatment of dense hair areas, would take long.

Expected results: Permanent removal of hair.

Pretreatment: Hair must not be plucked or waxed for 4 weeks prior to treatment. Hair may be shaved and clipped close to the skin level until the evening before the treatment. Bleaching of hair is permitted.

Electrolysis - Post treatment: None

Time to desired results: Results are immediate. However, in dense hair area, multiple treatment might be needed as some hair follicle can be missed during the treatement.

Duration of desired effects: A targeted follicle will be destroyed permanently. However, at any point of time, there is dorman hair that was not visible during the treatment. This dormant hair will start the hair growing cycle after the treatment complete, and new hair will show up over time. "Touch up" session might be needed to remove this hair.

Contraindications: None

Downtime: None

What WE DID WELL

(Answers:674)

Didn't have to wait long to see to get into the room, or for the doctor to come in. The doctor & medical assistant took the time to explain the medications, when I should take them, how much I should use and what they would do to my skin.

Your rain spouts put water into the driveway to the back parking lot. As it gets colder, it will freeze and create a dangerous pathway for clients

There is a problem with availability of parking during busy week days.
