Electrolysis is approved by the FDA for being permanent and safe.The Electrolysis procedure is done by inserting a fine, sterile metal probe into a follicle. Then, with the right amount of intensity delivered to the target area, the hair will slide out, a new one never growing from that follicle again. The best time to treat a hair is when it first emerges from the surface of the skin, when it is short, straight and moist. This is why it is important to schedule regular appointments and be consistent with your treatment.
Most women have unwanted hair, and most of that hair is normal for one’s age, sex and ethnic background. Hair patterns are usually inherited. Hormones may be stimulated by factors such as:
- Puberty, Pregnancy, or Menopause.
- Weight gain or loss
- Disruption of the Endocrine System (Examples: Uterine tumors, PCOS Irregular menstrual cycle)
Many people that develop unwanted hair will make the problem worse by waxing and tweezing. If the client would instead shave the area they would prevent the problem from becoming worse. Waxing and tweezing disturb the hair germ cells and will result in more hairs surrounding the area.
Not all hairs are visible at the same time; some take months to emerge. This is why it takes a series of treatments to successfully rid yourself of unwanted hair.
