Electrolysis is a method of removing individual hairs from the face or body. Today's medical electrolysis devices destroy the growth centre of the hair with Â heat energy. After a very fine probe is inserted into the hair follicle, the hair is removed with tweezers. Most areas of the body can be treated with electrolysis, including the eyebrows, face, abdomen, thighs, breasts, and legs. There are generally no permanent side effects, but sometimes a temporary, slight reddening of the skin may occur.
How does the treatment work?
A small amount of heat is passed into the hair root via a tiny probe. This cauterises the blood supply to the hair thus cutting it’s ‘food source’. The hair is then removed from the skin via tweezers.
Is the treatment permanent?
The hair grows in various stages and the treatment will only be permanent when treated during one particular stage. This means that several treatments will be required to eliminate each hair.
Is the treatment painful?
Most people feel a slight stinging sensation during treatment although this is short lived.
How much is the treatment?
From £12.95 to £25.00 depending on the length of treatment.
(consultation and patch test required)
Advanced electrolysis is the use of diathermy to remove skin blemishes such as red veins, skin tags and milia. These skin imperfections can be caused by a variety of reasons: sun damage, smoking, alcohol, extremes of temperature, hormones, friction, skin creams etc.
What happens during the treatment?
A tiny probe is used to send a burst of energy (heat) into or onto the blemish depending on the procedure. This results in cauterisation or coagulation of the blemish producing long lasting, effective results.
How many treatments will I require?
Usually a single treatment is all that is necessary although skin cannot be over-treated and sensitivity and size of area has to be taken into account. Your therapist will advise you of this.
Does Advanced Electrolysis hurt?
Each procedure is different and individual people have different pain thresholds. A slight stinging sensation is usually experienced but this is short lived.
How much does a treatment cost?
From £27.00 to £39.00 depending on the time taken.
