What is Electrolysis?
Electrolysis is an advanced technique resulting in permanent progressive hair removal.
How does it work?
The device destroys the growth centre of the hair with chemical or heat energy.
A very fine probe is inserted into each of the hair follicles, the hair is then removed with tweezers. We use ‘Disposable Needles’ and a full range of Professional Hygiene products to ensure your comfort and safety, as part of the special care we take to protect you from infection.
Are the effects Permanent?
Yes, If you follow a targeted treatment plan.
Post treatment advice
- A good hygienic home-care will avoid any spots or minor infections
occurring. It’s important to take extra care of the treated area, especially within the first 36/48 hours.
The skin should be left for a sufficient period of time for healing to take place before any make-up is applied. It must always be removed gently with unperfumed products that are suitable for sensitive skins. Lotions are less prone to promote infection than cream products.
Avoid sun exposure as much as possible for a minimum of three days post treatment, if you must be in the sun, apply an SPF40 + and reapply often.
Wear a hat and seek shade where possible. Be careful of sun exposure and use protection daily.
Hair should not be plucked or removed with a wax or cream remover between treatments. It is safer to simply cut any noticeable hairs with scissors.
Moisturisers should not be applied for 48 hours. After this time the area can be massaged to promote the healing process and complete recovery of the treated area. If a rash or minor infection appears at anytime in the treated area an antiseptic cream can be used.
Cortisone/steroid creams should not be used.
