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:

  1. White, blonde or red hair
  2. Fine hair
  3. Hair located in orifices or crevices
  4. Eyebrow shaping
  5. Skin which is too dark for laser
  6. Limited numbers of hair (e.g. you can count them). Then it would be advisable to do electrolysis since it would be cheaper. When hair is numerous it’s more economical to do laser.
