  • Does Electrolysis Work on All Hair Colours?
    Yes. It works on all colours. Black, grey, blonde, red, and everything in between.
  • What is the Difference Between Laser Hair Removal and Electrolysis?
    Electrolysis is the only medically approved method of permanent hair removal. The FDA only classifies laser hair removal as "permanent reduction" (notice not removal). Also, laser hair removal only works on dark hair against light skin whereas electrolysis works on all hair and skin colors.
  • How Long Will it Take to See Results from Electrolysis
    It really depends on the person and if the person previously used another method of hair removal. In order to have a better idea for each individual case , a personal assessment is needed. I am happy to provide a personal assessment free of charge.
  • Are There Any Side Effects to Electrolysis?
    There are a few. Side effects range from temporary redness, slight temporary swelling, as well as temporary bruising. With a skilled professional however, temporary bruising rarely ocurrs.
  • What Type of Electrolysis Do You Use?
    I use the most effective type of electrolysis called "the blend". The blend combines galvanic current and thermal current. This mode of treamtment tends to be more effective when clients have waxed or plucked in the past.
  • Does Electrolysis Hurt?
    There is a small sensation of heat that occurs during electrolysis. Don't worry though! It's minimal and patients often adjust very quickly. The sensation can also be minimized by applying a topical cream called Emla on hour before treatment, by drinking water before treatment, or by having the operator apply a small amount of pressure to the skin as the current is emitted.
  • How Long Does it Take to Finally Clear an Area?
    The answer to this question will vary from one person to another. There are several factors that will influence the total treatment time. Some of these factors are: the size of the area being treated, the hair density, the hair texture, the client's tolerance, age, medical history, the presence of distorted or curved folicles, and the frequency of visits.
