Electrology is the science of permanent hair removal using
state-of-the-art technology. An electrologist inserts a very fine
probe into the natural opening of the hair follicle alongside the hair shaft.
A minute amount of current is then applied to destroy the hair growth cells. Medical electrolysis devices destroy the hair growth cells with chemical or heat energy.
For more than 100 years, electrolysis hair removal has been a safe and permanent solution of eliminating unsightly, unwanted hair, for both MEN and WOMEN.
There are three modalities used today that fall under the heading of electrolysis:
1. Galvanic--the original electrolysis modality, is applied via direct current, resulting in a chemical change of salt and water to lye surrounding the hair follicle.
2. Thermolysis--Also know as radio, or high-frequency, uses alternating current to provide heat in the follicle.
3. Blend--A combination of galvanic and thermolysis, so that a chemical and heating action occur together in the follicle.
All modalities equally destroy hair growth cells that causes hair growth. The modality used is based on your individualized treatment determined by the professional electrologist.
Currently, electrolysis is the only method of hair removal approved by the FDA as being permanent.
Most areas of the body can be treated with electrolysis, including the eyebrows, face, abdomen, back, underarms, breasts, bikini, chest, back, legs, nose and ears. There are generally no side effects. Sometimes a temporary, slight reddening of the skin may occur.
