Are there different kinds of Electrolysis?

Are there different kinds of Electrolysis?

We believe in using all proven methods! ‘Electrology’ is a term that can refer to ‘thermolysis’ and also ‘the blend’.  Both methods treat hairs individually with a probe but destroy the hair follicle in a different way.  Thermolysis creates heat in the hair follicle through application of radio frequency.  The Blend utilizes thermolysis as well but augments it with direct current.  Direct current by itself can also destroy hair but by creating a chemical...

When Laser, when Electrolysis?

When Laser, when Electrolysis?

Go with  laser: When the hair is visibly dark and there’s a lot ( a couple of dozen or more). Electrolysis would be suitable as well in this case because the end cost would be similar.  The more hair there is though, the more cost effective laser becomes.  Sometimes it comes down to personal preference. It may be that the sensation produced by one or the other is preferable.  Or the fact that when receiving laser treatments the area should be shaved while, prior to electrolysis it’s...

What Is Electrolysis?

What Is Electrolysis?

Electrolysis (sometimes called thermolysis) destroys the hair by the same process as laser does. This process is heat. The big difference is, the heat is generated through a probe which is manually inserted into each hair follicle. The skin may be more irritated by this procedure and may become swollen for a short time. Since the arrival of  laser, application for electrolysis is usually limited to the following: White, blonde or red hair Fine hair Hair located in orifices or crevices Eyebrow...

If you would like to learn more about electrolysis, please take advantage of the courtesy consultation we offer. Consultations provide individual information and also offer a demonstration. The demo will help you judge the quality of the treatment you will be paying for. The operator should be concerned about what you have been doing with your hair up to now, i.e. shaving, waxing, or tweezing, and the last time you removed any hair. This information is imperative in order for her to evaluate...

How long will it take?

How long will it take?

When receiving efficient treatment regularly for a problem area, 75% of the offending hairs are usually eliminated within the first four to six months. This can true no matter how large the problem is. The key is clearing the area once every two weeks. If the hairs are too numerous to clear that frequently, then it takes  proportionally longer. Individual results differ of course, because of variations in skin sensitivity and hair types, but most cases are fairly predictable. It is a common...

Electrolysis – Does it Hurt?

Electrolysis – Does it Hurt?

For many people, the word ‘electrolysis’ conjures up pretty unsettling images. The idea of  a ‘needle’ and electricity…wait, it’s not like that. You will not feel the probe because it gently enters the hair follicle.  You will feel the heat that will be generated in root area. Usually it hurts less than plucking out a hair. What your nerve endings will perceive is very individual so all we can say is you’ll be happy to have checked it out, and...

Electrolysis? Or Laser?

Electrolysis? Or Laser?

Did you know that both laser and electrolysis remove hair permanently, and that they have some quite important differences you should know about?  How much hair are you targeting, and what colour is it? Electrolysis treats one hair at a time, approximately 200-800 hairs per hour. Light can treat tens of thousands. Because electrolysis is less costly per hour than light, the rule is, if you have only a few hairs to treat (200 or less) it would make more sense to go with electrolysis.  For large...
