Frequently Asked Questions
Clear up your queries below
Electrolysis is the destruction of a hair follicle with a controlled amount of electrical current. A very fine needle is inserted into the natural opening of the hair follicle. Then electrical current is directed to the base of the follicle, causing cellular destruction and ultimately stopping the ability of the hair follicle to produce another hair..
Hair growth is caused by hormones and blood supply. Heredity and certain medications can be a contributing factor. Hair growth caused by hormonal stimulation can be caused by changes in the body during puberty, pregnancy and menopause.
Skin damage is unlikely with electrolysis under normal circumstances. There will, however, be some slight skin reaction during treatment that may remain visible for 1 – 2 hours afterward. This is normal, and will vary from one individual to another. Skin reactions will range from a slight redness of the skin to a minor welting effect, which usually disappears quickly with the application of ice to the area. Many people have such a minimal reaction to a treatment that it is virtually undetectable.
Some individuals will experience minimal discomfort during an electrolysis treatment. Most of the time there is very little discomfort. Certain areas of the body are more sensitive than others, and each individual will have a different sensitivity level. Therefore, there are many adjustments that can be made during a treatment to insure comfort. There are also several, very effective, topical anesthetics available over the counter for anyone who would need them.
To achieve permanency, a series of treatments is required and a commitment on the end of the client. This is not a “quick fix”. It is, however, the only method of hair removal approved by the FDA as PERMANENT. We begin with weekly treatments and as the hair follicle begins to weaken over time, it is likely that a client can come in bi-weekly and eventually fall into a “maintenance schedule” for the last few visits.
Almost every area of the body can be treated. Some of which include: the hairline, earlobe, eyebrows, upper lip, chin, side of face, neck, chest, breast, back, fingers, arms, underarms, bikini line, legs and toes.
In the state of North Carolina, there are Rules and Regulations an electrologist must follow. In these Rules, the following areas must be avoided with electrolysis treatments: mucous membranes and any area with a communicable condition. Moles can be treated with a doctor’s note.
Yes, it absolutely does. It has been, and still is the only FDA recognized method for PERMANENT Hair Removal. Laser hair removal, which I feel is also a valuable tool in the fight against unwanted hair, has only the approval of the FDA to promote itself as effective hair REDUCTION.
We accept payment in cash and all major credit cards.
