Electrolysis Hair Removal

Electrolysis Laser Clinic Sudbury Electrolysis Hair Removal

Unwanted hair is caused by many factors.

The most common factors are:

  • Hereditary
  • Some medications
  • Normal and abnormal changes within the body
  • Hormonal changes
  • Stress and eating disorders
  • Some temporary methods of hair removal

Electrolysis has been safely and successfully practiced since 1875 when Charles E. Michel, M.D., treated patients with a needle attached to a wire that was connected to a dry cell battery. Electrolysis is the only permanent method for hair removal to date.

How Does It Work?
A very fine needle is inserted into the hair follicle along side the hair. A minute amount of electrical current is then applied through the needle to destroy the hair root. Some people feel some discomfort but the level of tolerance depends on the individual person.

Is Electrolysis safe?
All electrologists must follow the procedures provided by the Canada Health guidelines for infection control and asceptic techniques in their offices.

The guidelines are as follows:

  • Sterile disposable needles
  • Sharps disposal uni
  • Steam autoclave or dry heat oven sterilizer
  • Disposable gloves
  • Third party verification

How Many Treatments Are Needed?
The frequency, number and length of treatments vary with each individual person.

Side Effects and After Care
Electrolysis has few or no side effects. It is normal to see some slight reddening along the treated area. This usually lasts a minute to an hour. Some light scabbing may occur, however it should be left alone and will heal in a few days. The application of a good antibiotic cream or an antiseptic lotion is recommended by most electrologists to help the healing process.

Other Hair Removal Methods
Shaving, waxing and tweezing can bring temporary relief from unwanted hair. Unfortunately, these hair removal methods can lead to darker and thicker hair regrowth and in some cases may even result in ingrown hairs.
