Electrolysis Q & A
Question: What are the causes of excess hair?
Answer: Hair growth is the result of heredity and hormonal levels. Also, some drugs, temporary methods of hair removal, and some illnesses can stimulate hair growth. Usually, hair growth is desirable. But when hair is on the wrong part of the body or in excessive amounts, whether it is the face, torso, or extremities , anywhere - you should consider Electrolysis.
Question: Are the results truly permanent?
Answer: Yes! Electrolysis is the only scientifically proven method of permanent hair removal. Shaving, tweezing, waxing, or using depilatories provide only temporary solutions to an ongoing problem and can cause skin irritations and accelerated regrowth. Electrolysis may require a greater time commitment than any of the above, but when completely and skillfully accomplished, electrolysis is the only means to safely and permanently eliminate the regenerative ability of hair follicles.
Question: Is electrolysis painful?
Answer: It is impossible to destroy hair growth tissue without some type of sensation being present.
Many people would compare this sensation to a tolerable pinch. The
actual discomfort level varies from person to person, but there is one thing to keep in mind – the sensation felt during electrolysis is assurance that destruction of the hair follicle is taking place.
Question: Will electrolysis damage skin?
Answer: Slight redness or temporary swelling of the skin may occur immediately following treatment. Occasionally, small scabs or whiteheads may appear that are part of the natural healing process. All of the above are temporary effects of the electrolysis process and will disappear quickly with no permanent damage or markings to the skin.
Question: What about cost?
Answer: Remember, electrolysis removes hair permanently whereas temporary methods require continuous treatments and often compound the problem. Electrolysis is far less expensive overall when considering the cost, time, and effectiveness — providing a wonderful lifetime investment in hair-free skin, enhancing ones self image.
Question: Is Electrolysis FDA approved?
Answer: Electrolysis is approved by the FDA as the only permanant hair removal method.
