Electrolysis (also known as epilation) is the removal of the hair and destruction of the follicle using a short wave diathermy current (heat) This causes a coagulation of the hair root and surrounding cells, restricting and eventually destroying a follicles capability to produce a new hair.
Epilation is the only real solution to remove unwanted hair growth for blonde, white and grey hairs. Each regrowth that occurs produces a finer growth. Fine hairs may only require one removal to achieve destruction depending on the stage of growth the hair is in at the time of treatment.
Some erythema and mild swelling of the skin is experienced post treatment. Clients are advised to keep the area treated free from make-up and perfumed products for 12 hours post treatment.
