Electrolysis Hair Removal To Remove Unwanted Hair

in Hair Removal

Today both men & women are seeking for ways to get rid of unwanted body hair. The trend or necessity of removing body hair is increasingly gaining favour with the western & urban people. Everyone is looking for having body hair removed permanently. Electrolysis is the best & most effective way to get rid of unwanted hair from any part of the body, be it your head, armpit, face or pubic.

Electrolysis is now very popular and common term used for removing unwanted hairs and getting permanent hair removal solution. Electrolysis doesn’t have any side effects and needs just a few visits to the consultant that leaves the skin smooth. Electrolysis gives the best results pertaining to any skin color and skin condition. Hair growth is the result of genetics and changes in hormonal levels.

Hair grows in different stages: growing, resting and shedding. Because all of the hair isn’t on the same stage at any given time, multiple sessions are needed to get the hair in the growth phase for electrolysis hair removal to be most effective. But electrolysis is a permanently solution of removing any unwanted hairs on any part of the body.

Firstly electrolysis is a permanent hair removal technique & is technically called epilation. Epilation is the removal of the entire hair, including the part below the skin. epilation removes the hair from the root & does not let it regrow. Other epilation methods are waxing, sugaring, epilation devices, lasers, threading, intense pulsed light. By electrolysis hair can be removed from almost anywhere on the body except from the inside of the nose, ears, or from a mole.

Electrolysis hair removal is done with unique a tool that has a metal probe that can conduct little electricity. During electrolysis, a needle is inserted into a hair follicle and an electrical pulse is sent through the needle. This probe should not pierce the skin & must be inserted carefully into the hair follicle. The electricity is passed into the probe once it is correctly positioned in the hair follicle. If this exacting hair follicle is in the lively growth stage at the time of treatment, it will probably not grow again. An electric current is applied with a very fine needle-shaped electrode, or metal probe into each hair follicle to destroy the root. There are three types of electrolysis: galvanic, thermolysis and blend.

The technician inserts a metal needle into the hair follicle which is of the same or smaller diameter than the hair shaft. The probe is inserted at the same angle as the hair is growing out of the skin. The power and duration of the electricity are started at the lowest setting, then increased until the hair comes out as easily as possible. If the patient experiences significant discomfort, the settings can be lowered.

Types of electrolysis hair removal


Galvanic An electro chemical current is used for hair removal. When using the galvanic method of electrolysis, a Direct Current is passed through a sterile needle that causes a chemical reaction in the follicle of the hair causing sodium hydroxide to be produced that will destroy the hair follicle.
Thermolysis A heat current used for hair removal produced by radio waves. Thermolysis electrolysis uses an Alternating Current passed through a sterile needle causing shaking in the water molecules that surround the follicles of the hair which causes heating and this damages the hair follicle causing it to expire. This method is faster than galvanic electrolysis, though less dependable. This method is also known as ‘short-wave radio occurrence diathermy’.
Blend Combination of above two methods to produce electro chemical reation and effective result. Blend electrolysis passes both AC and DC currents through the sterile needle simultaneously thereby making it much faster than the galvanic electrolysis method and more likely to be permanent.

1. It has the best track record. Electrolysis has the best overall results, versus any other method, in ridding hair for long periods of time- or even permanently.
2. Many different hair and skin types can benefit. Because it doesn’t target hair pigment (color) like laser, but attacks the follicle itself. People that aren’t good candidates for laser can still get electrolysis.
