Electrolysis is a permanent hair removal treatment. Electrolysis working by removing hair using various types of currents that, when inserted into the hair follicle, destroy it permanently. This is a treatment for clients who are suffering from folliculitis or excessive hair growth in unwanted areas. Hair grows at various stages, making this a multiple session treatment for hair removal.
The main benefits of electrolysis when compared with other treatments like laser hair removal are that it can treat any skin color and any hair color, which makes it the only true permanent hair removal procedure recognized by the FDA. Electrolysis is the preferred method of removing facial hair as it does not stimulate new hair growth, making it a better option than laser hair removal.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) also referred to as Hyperandrogenic Anovulation (HA) is a hormonal imbalance endocrine disorder that can cause excessive hair growth for females. It is most commonly found in women of the reproductive age. Electrolysis can benefit these patients with excessive hair growth.

What is Electrolysis?
Electrolysis is permanent hair removal. Regardless of the cause — hereditary, metabolic, or hormonal conditions — electrolysis will permanently remove unwanted hair to reveal a glowing, confident you.
Will electrolysis work for me?
Electrolysis is effective for all skin and hair types/colors, on all areas of the body.
What is the science behind electrolysis?
A small electric current is transmitted by a fine, sterile probe directly into the natural opening of the hair follicle, destroying the dermal papilla, the matrix, and an area called "the bulge," all of which cause hair to grow and regenerate.
Why do people get electrolysis hair removal?
Maybe it's just an unwelcome maintenance routine that takes a lot of time — but often, unwanted hair creates self-consciousness serious enough to impair relationships with other people.
Does electrolysis have any side effects on the skin?
Immediately following treatment, there may be a temporary redness or tenderness, which varies between clients. The latest technology has made electrolysis more comfortable and effective than ever before. Your electrologist will provide you with post-treatment instructions and any personal attention you may need.
My electrolysis session with Charity was spectacular! She was really informative about what she was doing. She’s very kind and professional. After my first appointment with her, I know I will be back to treat more areas. I will be referring her to all my friends!!!! She’s fantastic!
