What Is Electrolysis?

Women experience new hair growth as they age

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.  Since the introduction of laser hair removal, the use of electrolysis is usually used only in the following situations:

  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. When there are only a few hairs. If you can easily count them, then it would be cheaper to do electrolysis.   If there are a lot, then it’s generally more economical to go with laser.
