Q. What is Electrolysis?
Electrolysis involves inserting a sterile, hair-thin filament into the hair follicle down to the bulb. A small amount of energy is then released into the follicle to destroy the cells that cause hair growth. The regenerative ability of the hair follicle is permanently destroyed. Electrolysis is still the only 100% permanent hair removal method recognized by government regulatory agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the American Medical Association (AMA).
Q.What is the difference between Laser and Electrolysis?
A. Electrolysis is 100% PERMANENT hair removal and Laser is not. Electrolysis can treat any hair and skin type- including tattooed areas and dark skin. If you have dark skin, understand that the laser targets the melanin in your skin which can cause pigmentation problems. In some cases laser stimulates dormant hair follicles and creates hair growth in areas where none existed before. If you need to have a large area cleared quickly, laser can be temporary option. Please note that Laser IS NOT permanent and would need to be repeated because the hair will grow back.
A. Electrolysis can be applied to most all facial and body parts, including but not limited to: Forehead, Temples, Bridge of Nose, Eyebrows, Chin, Cheeks, Upper & Lower Lip, Jaw line & sides of the face, Neck, Chest, Breast & Underarms, Forearms, Hands, Knuckles, Abdomen, Bikini Area, Legs, Feet, Toes, etc...
