Do you have unwanted hair?


Unwanted hair is a common problem effecting most women to varying degree's throughout their lives, and prompting the various use of temporary methods of hair management systems. However Electrolysis is still the only permanent method of hair removal, and many women and men have benefited from this tried and trusted treatment. 

What is Electrolysis? 

Electrolysis is a safe, effective, progressive and permanent method of removing unwanted hair. It remains the only method to legally allowed to claim that it offers truly permanent hair removal for all skin types, hair types and colours.  Electrolysis is remarkably versatile and can be used safely on virtually all parts of the body with the exception of the ears and inside of the nose.  It is very effective for removal of hair on areas of the body, including the bikini and underarm areas, stomach, breasts, chin brows and upper lip hair removal for women.  Men often choose electrolysis for facial hair removal as well as treatment of shoulders, backs and the neck.

Electrolysis can also be safely used to remove Red Vein, Millia and Skin tags.  

How does Electrolysis work? 

Different electrolysis techniques are available. These include Galvanic, Diathermy and Blend (a combination of the other two) needle electrolysis. All the treatments consist of a variation on the use of a fine, high-temperature needle to destroy the hair follicle. In diathermy, a shortwave current cauterises the hair; in the other processes, galvanic currents cause salts and water in the follicle to produce lye, which enhances the destructive capability of the procedure.

A fine probe (about the size of an eyelash) is inserted into the hair follicle where a tiny burst of energy is targeted at the root of the hair.  This burst of energy prevents nutrients feeding the hair, and the hair becomes weaker and finer.   After repeated treatments, the hair is no longer able to grow and complete hair-free results are obtained. 

Is it safe? 

Electrolysis hair removal is a highly skilled and painstaking procedure that has evolved since the late nineteenth century, and has a very good success rate for permanent hair removal.  Modern technology has meant that Electrolysis has become gentle, comfortable, and even more effective.  It is also affordable, which makes it a very popular treatment.
