HOW ELECTROLYSIS WORKS
A sterile, single-use disposable probe is gently inserted into the follicle along side the hair. A measured amount of energy is then released via the probe into the follicle to destroy the source of growth.
Because this is a natural opening of the skin, the insertion of the probe is not felt by the client. What the client may actually feel is the application of the current.
It takes a series of treatments because each hair follicle has various stages of growth.
DOES IT DAMAGE THE SKIN?
Because the upper 1/3 of the follicle is left untreated, the chance of scarring is eliminated.
The bulk of the hair follicle destruction is accomplished in the lower 2/3rds of the follicle.
Do not tweeze or wax the area being treated. The follicle can be stimulated to produce a stronger hair, making electrolysis more difficult. It takes approximately 10–12 weeks for that particular hair to re-grow before it can be treated most effectively with electrolysis.
Hair to be treated may be trimmed with a small scissors. (Hairs need to be 1/8 inch long for treatments).
Do not have direct sun exposure for at least 24 hours prior to treatment.
