Electrolysis was first Introduced in 1875 by Dr Charles E. Michel. It is the only FDA approved method for permanent hair removal. It can be done on any type of hair and skin type. The procedure is very gentle and there is no recovery time needed after treatment. The skin may appear red for a few hours after treatment which is normal, So you may apply some ice to the area as needed. A pre sterilized needle that is the same size as the hair is inserted into the hair follicle and a tiny amount of current is applied then the hair is able to be removed. A number of treatments must be done in order for the Electrolysis to become permanent. There is three different methods of permanent hair removal.
#1 Thermolysis Method: Where the hair follicle is destroyed by the use of Heat Production.
#2 Galvanic Method: Where the hair follicle is destroyed by Direct Current.
#3 Blend Method: Where the hair follicle is destroyed by both Heat and Chemical Action.
LASER: Laser is a hair removal method, But is not FDA approved as a Permanent Method. It can not remove light colored hair on Patrons. Nor does it work on dark colored skin.
SHAVING: Once you start to shave you need to spend lots of time doing it. It is less expensive and will leave your skin smooth for a short period of time. It does cause ingrown hairs and bumping on the skin. It is a short term hair removal method.
TWEEZING: This method of hair removal is very painful, stimulates more hair growth, can also cause ingrown hairs.
WAXING: Waxing can be very expensive and you find yourself doing it often. It is the same as Tweezing, can cause ingrown hairs and bumps and redness.
DEPILATORIES: The use of creams which can burn the skin. It only removes the hair at the skin surface, can cause rashes and severe burns to people with sensitive skin.
