What is Electrolysis:

As defined by the American Electrology Association, electrolysis is the destruction of living tissue, especially that of the hair roots, by means of an electric current applied with a needle-shaped electrode.

The process destroys the hair root with a short wave frequency administered through an ultra fine probe inserted into the hair follicle. This procedure is performed by a Certified Clinical Electrologist.

Extensive use of temporary methods such as waxing, tweezing or threading may lead to an increase in hair growth. Your Electrologist is proficient in the most advanced methods and techniques in permanent hair removal.  The latest technology has made the process more convenient, comfortable and effective than ever before.   Treatment varies with each person and is influenced by many factors, such as: Previous use of temporary hair removal methods, Heredity, Hormonal imbalance, Normal physiological changes, Certain medications or even Stress. Treatment sessions can range from 15 minutes to more than an hour depending on the area being treated.
