About Electrolysis...

Unwanted hair is one of the most aggravating conditions that women deal with. Year after year they tweeze, shave, use abrasives, wax, chemical depilatories, bleach and lasers to rid themselves of their problem hair. These methods are only temporary because none of them destroy the life-giving stem cells in the lining of the hair follicle. Electrolysis is the only FDA-approved method to permanently eliminate unwanted hair. Unlike temporary methods, Electrolysis is gentle to the skin and actually improves skin that has been aggravated by constant temporary methods. Unlike methods that can only achieve some results with a dark hair / light skin combination, Electrolysis is successful at permanently stopping hair growth for any hair color / skin color combinations.

In 1875 an Ophthalmologist named Dr. Charles E. Michel, developed a method to permanently eliminate ingrown eyelashes. By applying a gentle, small amount of electric current to the base of a hair follicle, the stem cells that control hair growth are destroyed. The Electrologist guides a sterile probe into the hair follicle. Hair follicles are natural indentations that occur by the thousands on every skin surface except the palms of the hands and the soles of feet. Once the probe is in place, the current is applied. The hair is then removed along with the lining of the hair follicle where the stem cells are located.  The FDA approves only Electrolysis as a permanent treatment to eliminate unwanted hair. Electrolysis treatments are designed for each clients' specific needs and goals. Clients do feel the sensation of the electrons. Any discomfort is temporary and it varies greatly from person to person. The coarseness of the hair and the area being treated are the major factors that affect the sensation. A well trained Electrologist will know how to minimize any discomfort.

Humans are mammals - our defining feature is that we are covered with hair! This is nature and the stem cells in hair follicles are a rich source of DNA. Society has dictated what hair growth is "acceptable". Since the dawn of Man, people have been removing hair in the quest for smooth hair-free skin. Scientists know that early man used sharp stones to "shave". Tweezer-like tools have been found in archeological sites. Later civilizations such as the Egyptians and Greeks, as well as other smaller cultures, are known to have shaved and/or burned off their body hair. More recently, cultures have used threading and sugaring to remove body hair. As you can see, women of all cultures, near and far, have suffered with male-like hair growth for what seems an eternity! If you are embarrassed by coarse dark hair, you are not alone. Let Electrolysis free you from your burden - you deserve it!
