How does electrolysis work?

Electrolysis was first introduced in 1875. An electrolysis treatment involves the insertion of a sterile probe, the same size as the hair, into the hair follicle opening down to the dermal papilla. The dermal papilla is the electrologist's target. It is the part of the follicle that contains blood and nerves and feeds the growing hair. If the papilla and regenerative cells surrounding it are destroyed, the hair will die. When the probe is in place a low-level electrical current is applied that will destroy the papilla and surrounding cells and loosen the hair in the follicle. The hair is then removed.

What are the different methods of electrolysis?
Thermolysis is a current that produces heat in the area. The heat cauterized and destroys the dermal papilla. When it is eliminated the hair cannot survive.

Galvanic is a direct current to convert normal body salt and water in the hair follicle to a combination capable of destroying the dermal papilla.

Blend
is a combination of both currents together in the same probe. Thermolysis enhances the action of the galvanic method to produce a fast process.

When you arrive I will decide what type of treatment process will work best and achieve the best and fastest permanent result.


What causes unwanted hair?
Major factors:
  • Heredity
  • Racial characteristics
  • Glandular disturbances: thyroid, polycystic, ovaries, overactive adrenal glands
  • Medication
  • Topical influences
  • Stress
  • Puberty
  • Pregnancy
  • Menopause
Electrolysis can eliminate existing hair but it cannot stop new hairs from growing.

  • Void anything too hot
  • Use astringent and polysporin after cleansing
  • Cover area with sunscreen if exposed to sunlight
  • If pustules and crust appears don't pick
