What Is Electrolysis?

By 28th July 2020Beauty

An increasingly popular beauty treatment, electrolysis is the process of removing unwanted hairs from the face or body with a device that destroys the root/follicles of the hairs. This prevents regrowth and results in smooth, hairless skin.

Ivory Taylor has years of experience in the hair and beauty industry and our technicians can provide a range of healthcare and beauty treatments, including electrolysis in Colchester. We can arrange a consultation before your treatment to discuss the best options available for you and will organise a suitable time that works for you.

How Does Electrolysis Work?

Electrolysis is a method that results in permanent hair removal and involves removing individual hairs from the face or body. The treatment works by passing a small current along a very fine needle into the hair follicle, this process results in weakening the hair at the root, so it can be removed. Electrolysis works on all skin and hair types and most facial and body parts can be treated on.

The number of sessions and duration you have will determine how long the hair removal will last. With each session, hair re-growth will begin to slow-down and the more sessions the longer-lasting results. The number of sessions needed to remove hair permanently will vary from person to person along with depending on the area you are having treated.

Electrolysis is an ideal solution when hair growth is where it may not be desired.

Which Areas Can Be Treated?

Hair growth is normal and is the result of heredity and hormone levels. There are a number of factors that can stimulate unwanted hair growth and electrolysis is a fast and effective treatment for hair removal. Most areas of the face and body can be treated, some of these include:

  • Face
  • Eyebrows
  • Lower lip
  • Breasts
  • Underarm
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Legs
  • Hands
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Bikini line

There may be slight redness of the skin after the treatments have been completed but this will subside a couple hours after the procedure and overall there are generally no permanent side effects. Hair can also be removed from sensitive areas of the body such as the stomach making the electrolysis treatment extremely versatile.

What Are The Benefits Of Electrolysis?

The process of treating each hair follicle takes it times, however, the treatment is extremely effective. There are a number of amazing benefits that result from having the beauty treatment electrolysis, the greatest being that it removes hair permanently.
