Frequently Asked Questions

What is electrolysis?


Electrolysis is approved by the FDA for permanent hair removal, and has the best overall results over any other method for removing hair permanently. Electrolysis treatments have been available since the late 1800’s. Electrolysis practitioners have many educational opportunities available that have allowed knowledge of the factors that cause the excess hair growth, to see the action of current in the skin, and to keep up on new products and equipment that help us provide better treatments than was available in the early days of electrolysis. Electrolysis treatments will treat only the offending hair follicle, and can be performed on any color of skin and any size and color of hair.
