Electrolysis is a permanent hair removal method for excess or undesired hair growth. Use on the rest of the body and to remove facial hair is safe. A skilled electrologist uses an electric current to remove the hair throughout your sessions. Both the surgery and its aftereffects are painless.
A method of hair removal is electrolysis. A small wire is inserted by a qualified electrologist into the skin’s surface-level hair follicle. The hair root is destroyed by an electric current that travels down the wire and out of the follicle. Damage to the follicles inhibits new hair from forming and leads to shedding of the old hair.
Over a century has passed since the invention of electrolysis. It was initially created to get rid of irritating ingrown eyelash hairs. The only permanent hair removal procedure that has received FDA approval is electrolysis.
Who Need Electrolysis
Hair growth is typical and frequently desired. However, occasionally, patients seek electrolysis because they:
displeased with where your hair grows (for example, between the eyebrows, on the upper lip or on the breasts).
possess hirsutism, which is an excessive development of hair.
are changing their gender.
What kind of equipment is used for electrolysis?
Epilators are equipment used for medical electrolysis. They use an electric charge to destroy the hair’s growth centre.
What transpires through electrolysis?
The thin needle electrologists employee is frequently even finer than human hair. They place the needle into the hair follicle’s entrance. The hair development cells are destroyed by a little electrical current. The area of skin where the needle is inserted may momentarily feel warm or pinched.
How many sessions of electrolysis will I require?
There will be multiple appointments required. Depending on the individual, a person may require a different number of sessions to accomplish permanent hair removal. You often need an appointment once a week or twice a month. The appointments may go on for up to 1.5 years.
The body area and the type of hair that grows there are two elements that affect how long a treatment will take. You will want more treatments if you’re treating a larger area or an area with tough hair.
Why do I need so many electrolysis procedures?
Different hairs have various growth cycles. The hair follicle in your head both grows and sheds hair. This cycle of hair development, rest, and replacement is a three-step procedure. Different stages of this cycle are present in each individual hair. The hairs are destroyed when they are caught in the cycle at the proper time by multiple treatments.
How long does a course of electrolysis last?
A session of electrolysis might run anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour.
What should I know following the procedure?
Try to avoid engaging in any activities that can irritate the hair follicles for the first 24 hours following your treatment, such as:
- anything that makes you perspire
- keeping the sun on.
- putting on makeup.
