Q: What is electrolysis?
A: Electrology is the science of permanent hair removal. Using state-of-the-art technology, a minute amount of electricity is gently applied to the base of the hair follicle. This process destroys the hair growth tissue. Therefore, the regenerative ability of the hair follicle is permanently eliminated. Electrolysis is essential to realizing the look you want and it is more effective than ever before. Let electrolysis work its wonders for you.
Q: Is electrolysis painful?
A: There is a sensation associated with the treatment that may be interpreted as a slight warming effect, but with today’s technology, your comfort has been maximized.
Q: How much does electrolysis cost?
A: Electrolysis is considered a very cost-effective method of hair removal. The overall cost is tied to each individual’s recommended treatment schedule. Your electrologist will discuss with you the optimum program to achieve the results you desire.
Q: Why should I choose electrolysis over other temporary methods like laser and waxing?
A: Unlike other hair removal options, professionally performed electrolysis eliminates unwanted hair permanently, with unsurpassed results. Moreover, it does so for the largest variety of skin and hair types. Laser promoters compare laser to electrolysis although laser assisted hair removal is considered a temporary method. It has not been evaluated for long-term safety for patients’ skin and health. Waxing, threading and tweezing are alike. However, ingrown hairs and discoloration may result. Additionally, they may cause increase in hair growth activity. Depilatories and shaving can cause an irritation to the skin while the hair regrows quickly. These methods can require a lifetime of maintenance. Many can appear inexpensive but cost more due to long term use and are found to be inconvenient. Electrolysis works on most areas of the body to give you smooth, sleek healthy looking skin. No other solution claims such universal acceptability and success.
Q: Do electrologists follow appropriate infection control?
A: The American Electrology Association has written Infection Control Standards following the most recent recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Association for Practitioners in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC).
Q: How many treatments are required?
A: The number of treatments necessary varies with each client. Treatment sessions can range from 15 minutes to more than an hour depending on the area being treated. Factors such as hair growth cycles, the quantity of structure of hair presented, previous use of temporary hair removal methods, heredity, hormone function, certain medication and stress influence the treatment program for each individual. Electrolysis is effective on all skin and hair types. No other hair removal solution can claim such universal acceptability and success. It is important to follow the recommended treatment plan to achieve optimum results.
Q: Does electrolysis have any side effects on the skin?
A: Immediately following treatment, there may be slight redness, which varies with each individual. Your electrologist will provide you with post treatment instructions and the personal attention you need. You are assured of the best care from a skilled hair removal professional.
Q: Can unwanted hair be removed from anywhere on the body?

Based on a personal and confidential consultation, your electrologist will design a treatment plan that addresses your specific hair removal needs. There is no better solution than electrolysis, a treatment that’s as individual as you are.
