Electrolysis Q & A

What is electrolysis?

Electrolysis sends tiny heat currents into your individual hairs to permanently damage the hair follicles. The procedure involves inserting a thin needle into the pore that contains your unwanted hair. A current runs through the needle and directly reaches the hair follicle to destroy it.

Finally, the team removes your unwanted hair with tweezers to prevent it from fully growing back.

Which areas can electrolysis treat?

Unlike laser hair removal, electrolysis is FDA-approved to permanently remove unwanted hair. The team can also perform electrolysis anywhere on your body, including your eyebrows. Like laser hair removal, this non-surgical procedure works for all hair and skin types.

The laser and skin care specialists at Deborah Freeman MacDonald, R.E. Inc typically recommend electrolysis for areas where you have fine hair. The treatment works particularly well for peach fuzz, upper lip hair, and unwanted facial hair.

To remove coarse, thick hair on the legs or arms, the team suggests a stronger treatment, such as laser hair removal.

How long does electrolysis take?

Most electrolysis treatments take between 15-60 minutes. How many treatments you need depends on several factors, including the treatment area, how thick your hair is, and how much hair you want to have removed.

Most people need several electrolysis treatments to permanently remove their unwanted hair, but it varies from person to person. Because electrolysis doesn’t use laser energy, you can typically return once every week or two for your treatments.

Does electrolysis have side effects?

You may experience temporary redness, pain, and swelling after electrolysis, but these side effects should subside within a few days. While electrolysis is more painful than laser hair removal, it also produces more permanent results with similar side effects.

Is electrolysis safe?

Like laser hair removal, electrolysis is a non-invasive treatment for unwanted hair that produces safe, effective results. Because electrolysis destroys single hairs at the follicle, it doesn’t damage the surrounding skin.

Electrolysis eliminates the need to regularly shave and wax. If you’re looking for a permanent solution to unwanted hair, call Deborah Freeman MacDonald, R.E. Inc, or book an appointment online to learn more about electrolysis.
