Electrolysis is the permanent removal of hair using the epilation method – this is where our device destroys the hair growth without causing damage to the skin, and then via inserting a very fine needle (very very fine, don't panic!) to destroy the reproductive hair follicle. This not only results in the removal of the dead hair but also provides a reduction of the follicle’s capacity to regenerate new hair.
In order for electrolysis to be carried out the hair must be grown so that it is visible so to allow treatment. Hair should not be interfered with between treatments.
The length of time that it will take for permanent hair removal will vary depending on a number of factors, such as, excessive hair growth, low tolerance of discomfort or poor skin healing problems as these all affect the manner in which the treatment is applied and the timetable for treatment.
To achieve the best hair removal results possible, several rounds of electrolysis need to be administered over a period of time in order to be completely effective.
The average session lasts around 10 to 30 minutes and the series of treatments will take place over the course of a few months or a year. After this, usually no further treatment is required. The exact number of hair electrolysis treatments needed to completely get rid of hair will differ from person to person, but will also depend on the area of the body where hair is to be removed.
Electrolysis is a method of removing individual hairs from the face and body by destroying the growth centre of the hair with chemical or heat energy. A very fine needle is inserted into the hair follicle and then the hair is removed with tweezers. Most areas of the body can be treated with electrolysis and all hair colours and types.

Electrolysis can help with excessive hair growth. Excessive hair growth is a common problem with the majority of individuals suffering as a result of hormonal imbalances or changes. Hormonal changes in the body are normal and cause increased activity of the follicles, turning fine hair growth into a visible and distressing superfluous hair problem. The hairs of the facial area are especially sensitive to these minute hormonal changes. A number of stages in life, such as pregnancy or the menopause, are the most susceptible to hair growth problems due to the changing or increasing of hormonal activity.
