Do you have unwanted hair?Unwanted hair is a common problem affecting most women to varying degrees throughout their lives and prompting the use of various temporary methods of hair reduction or hair management systems. However Electrolysis is still the only proven permanent method of hair removal and many women and indeed many men, have benefitted from this tried and trusted treatment.
“Electrolysis is a gentle, comfortable, effective and affordable modern treatment increasingly popular today.”
What is Electrolysis?Electrolysis is a safe, effective, progressive and permanent method of removing unwanted hair. It remains the only method legally allowed to claim it offers truly permanent hair removal for all skin types and colours and all hair types and colours.
With the choice of 3 methods of Electrolysis available, there is something to suit all. Our treatment is ‘tailor made’ to suit YOU.
How does Electrolysis work?A fine probe (about the size of an eyelash) is inserted into the fair 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.
Each hair requires repeated treatment because each individual hair has its own growing cycle and blood supply. Electrolysis work by weakening the hair and eventually destroying it. Results take a little time, but, just like dieting, it’s not the crash diet but the healthy eating plan that works in the long run.
Is the treatment painful?The level of sensation experienced throughout your treatment will vary greatly upon several factors: mainly your hair type, location and your individual pain threshold. Often patients find the first treatment to be the most uncomfortable, as they are uncertain as to what may be expected. As part of your initial consultation, a test patch will be carried out for you to familiarise yourself with the sensation of electrolysis and allow you to become acquainted with the treatment. A benefit of having the procedure at LBPS is local anaesthetic injections, which can be administered by our Electrolygist to particularly sensitive areas in order to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Following treatments are often much more comfortable as the hairs begin to weaken.
“Electrolysis is a safe, effective, comfortable treatment for every client with varying hair growth problems.”
How many treatments will I need?Electrolysis is a progressive treatment and the only permanent method of hair removal. The amount of treatments will depend upon the cause and size of the hair growth. It is important to follow the treatment plan as advised to obtain the desired results. As the hairs become finer, the treatments can be further apart.
How will my skin look after the treatment?Following treatment it is normal for the skin to look pink and feel warm. It is important to follow the after-care advice given.
