Electrolysis for Hair Removal
Electrolysis is an intricate process requiring skill, patience, and a sound knowledge of background factors to ensure success.
Cristina is a highly skilled Electrologist with over 35 year’s experience in this highly exclusive treatment. Unlike IPL, Electrolysis will treat and permanently remove blonde, grey and red hair. Mole hairs can be removed with this method of hair removal.
Electrolysis destroys the growth cells of the hair follicle, preventing treated hairs from growing back. Treatment can be applied to most facial and body parts including eyebrows, chin, upper and lower lip, jaw line, sides of the face, breasts, underarms, abdomen, bikini line, fingers and toes, legs and back.
The Electrologist slides a hair-thin needle into each targeted hair follicle a current is passed through the needle to destroy the hair and a tweezer is used to glide the treated hair out.
There are generally no permanent side effects, but sometimes a temporary, slight reddening of the skin may occur.
What Causes Unwanted Hair Growth?
Hair growth is the result of heredity and hormone levels. Also, some drugs, and illnesses can stimulate hair growth.
How many treatments will I need?
Many factors influence hair growth, so you will need to return for several electrolysis visits. The total number of sessions needed to remove hair from a particular area will vary from person to person. Most clients return once a week or every other week as needed.
Electrolysis versus laser hair removal
Laser: The mainstream laser unit can only be used on those with light skin and dark hair. It can burn those with dark skin and not give optimal results for people with light hair because the laser targets pigment (dark color).
Electrolysis: Can be used on anyone despite their skin or hair color because it attacks the hair follicle itself, and not the pigment in the hair.
For a more comfortable treatment, avoid caffeine for a few hours before your appointment.
Hydrate – Drinking plenty of water before your treatment helps unwanted hair slide right out
Gentle exfoliation before your treatment opens up the follicles allowing easier insertion down the hair shaft.
Did you know?
If your electrologist can't see the hairs, they can't zap the hairs. Plucking, waxing, threading, or tweezing before your hair removal appointment reduces the number of hairs your electrologist can remove
It's okay to cut or shave between treatments, but never tweeze! Or wax
Electrolysis is charged by the time: disposable needle is included in
Alkaline Wash For Hair Removal By Danne
Alkaline Wash is the latest way to significantly reduce hair, especially effective for fine downy hair on the face. The process itself is remarkably simple and it takes about 15-20 minutes for smaller body parts and for larger areas up to 45 minutes. Alkaline Hair Wash does NOT promote thicker hair growth or stimulate dormant hair follicles.
What is Alkaline and how does it work?
Alkaline wash is an alkaline powder that is mixed into a paste and applied to the desired area for a short period of time, depending on the coarseness of the hair. The treatment is not like a hair removal cream. It is of a much higher pH, swelling the hair shaft, and as it dissolves the hair, some of the Alkaline Wash solution enters the hair shaft, damaging and weakening the papilla the hair grows from, reducing hair regrowth.
After the first treatment hair will grow back at its normal rate, but as treatments progress the rate of regrowth will lessen, usually resulting in a reduction of hair growth and some permanent loss over a period of time.
All skin types and ethnicities can be treated adjusting the process for the individual. A patch test (done 48 - 72 hours before treatment) and consultation are required. The treatment not only removes the fine velous hair but also acts as an exfoliate which will leave the skin smooth and refined. Home Prescriptives are needed, following treatment.
