Image saying What is electrolysis

Electrolysis is a system of hair removal that has been in use since 1875. Its effectiveness in removing hair is championed by the fact that electrolysis is the only form of permanent hair removal recognized by the American Medical Association and the FDA.

The process is initiated by inserting a sterile fine needle into the base of the hair folicle. The needle (a thin wire like instrument) applies a measured amount of electricity at the base of the folicle creating an electrical sensation which cauterizes the blood flow at the root of the hair causing its distruction. The hair can then be removed and does not grow back.

The sterilization procedures include the sterilization of all electrology instruments, the use of a face mask, the use of pre-sterilized, single-use disposable needles plus hand washing and the use of a fresh pair of disposable gloves for each treatment. These technologies make electrolysis effective and comfortable.

How long a person has to undergo treatment to remove their unwanted hair and the method used depends on the amount of hair, its coarseness and the cause of the excess hair.
