Q & A

Q. Is Electrolysis safe?

 A.  Absolutely, if performed by a certified electrologist using disposable probes (you receive a new probe every time), sterile forceps ( I use an ultrasonic cleaner and then an autoclave), and follow strict health and safety standards which i comply with.

Q. Are treatments painful?

 A.  This varies from person to person and body area. What a client feels is a sensation of warmth as well as a slight sting.  There are option such as topical anesthetics that can be used to make the process as comfortable as possible.

Q. Is Electrolysis permanent?

 A.  Yes, it is the only method approved by the medical profession and FDA as being safe, effective and Permanent. Other methods of hair removal such as waxing, tweezing, and depilatories can only provide temporary relief.  It's also important to know that Laser hair removal is not permanent.  The FDA prohibits the phrase "permanent", "long term", or "painless" to be used in the advertising of laser hair removal.  If found doing so they receive fines. State law also explains that it must be a Doctor or trained health professional who performs the laser procedure.

Q. How long will the process take?

 A.  There are many factors that affect the treatment process including how much hair growth in the area, how you were previously treating the hair, medical history, and much more which which i cover during a consultation.

Q. What areas of the body can be treated?

 A.  Almost all except deep inside the ear or nose.  Always ask of specific areas you want treated before booking an appointment.

Q. What caused unwanted hair growth?

 A.  Heredity is the greatest influence on hair growth, other factors can be illness, operations, glandular and medication. Luckily Electrology can eliminate the hair no matter what the cause.

Q. How do I cope with hair growth between treatments?

 A.  I suggest scissor-cutting of the hair. This will leave enough hair for Your Electrologist to treat and remove.  Please no waxing, depilatories, or laser.

Q. Should I be concerned about after effects?


A.  If performed properly the only after effects will be some slight redness and or bumps that will quickly disappear after you leave.  It's important to keep the area clean (hands off) and ice can help to speed the relief.
