Photo energy beamed into the skin, could instantaneously destroy...

What Is Electrolysis?

What Is Electrolysis?

Thermolysis destroys the hair by the same process as laser does.

How long will it take?

When receiving efficient treatment regularly for a any area, 75% of the offending hairs can be eliminated within the first four to six months.  The key is clearing the area once every two weeks.  If the hairs are too numerous to clear that frequently, or treatments are irregular, then completion time will be delayed accordingly. Individual results differ of course, because of variations in skin sensitivity and hair types, and causes of growth, but...
