What Is Electrolysis?

What Is Electrolysis?

Thermolysis destroys the hair by the same process as laser does. (electrolysis today is  more accurately known as thermolysis)  It generates heat which destroys the hair follicle.  Unlike laser, the heat in thermolysis 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 and exhibit some temporary, minimal discolouration.  A laser treatment is hundreds of times faster than...

THERMOLYSIS  creates heat in the hair follicle through application of radio frequency.  Radio frequency is really sound waves which oscillate at millions of times per second.  This...

More on Laser vs Electrolysis

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.  example. Laser can treat thousands. Because electrolysis is less costly per hour than laser, the rule is, if you have only a few hairs to treat (e.g. less than 100), it would make more sense to go with electrolysis. ...
