What is electrolysis? A method using direct current to drive a non-spontaneous chemical reaction.
Which means..? An electric current is applied with a fine, needle shaped electrode into each hair follicle to destroy the root. It is a permanent hair removal system which requires multiple sessions.
Why does it require multiple sessions? Hair grows in three stages (growing, resting, shedding) and must be in the growth phase for removal to be most effective, and since each hair does not have the same growth rate, multiple sessions are needed to ensure each hair is completely removed. Also, prolonged waxing and tweezing can bend or misshape the hair follicle, making removal more difficult. It can take 15-30 sessions to complete the process.
What does it feel like? Most describe a stinging or 'pricking' sensation.
Why choose electrolysis over laser? As the laser is attracted to pigmented hair, it is not meant for those with dark skin and hair. Dark, coarse hair can cause burning, which leads to scarring. Electrolysis has no pigment limitations.
