Electrolysis is one of the most ancient and well-established procedures of hair removal. Without a doubt, electrolysis has several advantages over other hair removal methods, the most important of which is that it is the only modality that provides a permanent solution. If those who have had electrolysis have had any problems, it is usually because they received treatment from a facility or somebody who is not well-versed, skilled, or equipped to provide the service effectively.
It is critical to look at the electrologist’s credentials: Is she licensed? Is she a CPE (Certified Professional Electrologist)? Is she a member of any professional associations? Is she given ongoing education to stay current on industry advances?
Electrolysis, like many medical techniques, is not without flaws. One of the few negatives is that occasional side effects (inflammation, minor skin irritation, and edema) may occur; however, they are often minor and of short duration.
To get permanent results, electrolysis involves a series of treatments, and it is often not possible to remove all hair in a single session. Additionally, some clients report discomfort while treating particularly sensitive areas such as the upper lip. However, currently computerised, digital technology has substantially lowered the level of discomfort, and there are over-the-counter topical anaesthetics that can be used to make treatment of sensitive areas much more comfortable.
Electrolysis is the only permanent hair removal method approved by the FDA and the medical community.
- Electrolysis offers fewer risks/side effects than laser hair removal.
- It has been around for almost 140 years and has a proven track record.
- According to Face Reflections, it eliminates the need for additional treatment to the same region (saving money, troubles, and time).
- If hair grows back, it is thinner, lighter, and less apparent.
- According to studies, more than 90% of persons who receive this treatment are pleased with the results.
- In contrast to laser, which only works on light skin and dark hair, electrolysis works on any hair colour or skin type.
- Electrolysis destroys not just hair follicles but also hair-growing cells, removing the possibility of hair re-growth.
- Electrolysis is an effective and appealing choice for persons with medical-condition-induced hair growth (PCOS), transgendered people, and people who need smooth, hair-free skin permanently due to their employment (e.g., models, professional swimmers, etc.).
- Electrolysis is typically conducted by highly trained specialists (such as those at Face Reflections) utilising cutting-edge equipment and procedures.
