Electrolysis hair removal is a method of permanent hair removal that uses a small electrical current to destroy the hair follicle. A fine probe is inserted into the hair follicle, and a small electrical current is applied, destroying the hair growth cells. Electrolysis can be used on all areas of the body, including the face, legs, arms, underarms, and bikini area.

Benefits of Electrolysis
Electrolysis is your one-way solution for a more permanent and efficient method to remove grey / white hair / thin hair . It is the only FDA approved hair removal method, medically recognized to be PERMANENT. Different from laser, it uses a tiny probe that kills the cells from inside the hair follicle by emitting heat. One concern people usually have with electrolysis is that it is a costly way of hair removal. When compared to the amount of time and money put into all the other hair removal methods, it is definitely worthwhile
Time-Consuming: Electrolysis hair removal is a time-consuming process, as each hair must be treated individually.
Can Be Uncomfortable: Some people may experience discomfort or pain during the procedure.
Requires Multiple Aessions: It typically takes several sessions to achieve permanent hair removal.
Not Suitable For Large Areas: Electrolysis is not practical for large areas of hair.

How it works...?
Electrolysis hair removal uses a fine probe that is inserted into the hair follicle. A small electrical current is then applied, which destroys the hair growth cells. The probe is then removed, and the hair is tweezed out. This process is repeated for each hair that needs to be removed.
Types Of Electrolysis: There are three main types of electrolysis: Galvanic, Thermolysis, and Blend. Galvanic electrolysis uses a direct current to create a chemical reaction in the hair follicle. Thermolysis uses an alternating current to generate heat in the hair follicle. Blend electrolysis uses a combination of both direct and alternating currents.
Pain Tolerance: Pain tolerance varies from person to person, and some people may experience discomfort or pain during the procedure. However, many people find that the level of pain is manageable and similar to tweezing or waxing.
Number Of Treatments: The number of treatments required will depend on the area being treated, hair color and coarseness, and individual hair growth cycles. Typically, a series of 12-15 sessions are recommended for optimal results.
Aftercare: It’s important to avoid sun exposure and sweating for 24 hours after the treatment. Also, it’s recommended to avoid tweezing, waxing or using depilatory creams between treatments as it can interfere with the electrolysis process.
Risks: Electrolysis hair removal is generally considered safe, but there is a small risk of complications such as skin irritation, redness, and scarring. These risks can be minimized by choosing a qualified practitioner and following post-treatment instructions.

Frequently Asked Questions About
In our decades of being permanent hair specialist, we have seen that treatments are not as successful when one or more of the following is not followed as recommended:
1) full cleanings (treatment of ALL hairs present) are not treated in every visit for the same body part. Incomplete cleanings (when hairs were left untreated) will delay the overall timeline of treatment. Even if you are treating a large body part, either break it down in parts and stick to treating that section of the part until the process is completed, or book multiple visits within a week to complete the treatment of all hairs from that body part every 15 days.
2) Irregular visits. Even if you do full cleanings (treatment of all hairs present in the area) every time, you must visit every 15 days for the duration of the treatment, which is for around 18+ months. If not, expect the treatment to go beyond the average timeline.
3) Stopping treatment before the 18+ month timeline. Eighteen months may seem a lot in the short-term, but it is only a small timeframe compared to time and money wasted in a lifetime with temporary or reduction methods. The Furless Treatment is the most effective, fastest, and kindest to your skin method of electrolysis permanent hair removal.

These are some of the possible side effects of the electrolysis procedure:
DISCOMFORT– Some discomfort may be experienced during electrolysis treatment. This varies from person to person. We recommend starting with a pay as you go option to try the sensation before committing to a non-refundable package.
WOUND HEALING– Electrolysis procedures can result in swelling, itching, crusting, or temporary acne in the treated areas, which may require some time to heal. Once the surface has healed, it may be pink or sensitive to the sun, or may take longer in some people.
BRUISING/SWELLING/INFECTION– With electrolysis, bruising of the treated area may occur. Additionally, there may be some swelling noted. Finally, skin infections such as ingrown hairs are a possibility whenever a skin procedure is performed, although these are rare.
PIGMENT CHANGES (Skin Color)- During the healing process, there is a slight possibility that the treated area can become either lighter or darker in color compared to the surrounding skin. This is usually temporary, but, on a rare occasion, it may be permanent.
SCARRING– Scarring is a rare occurrence if the skin is prepared for treatment and there is no overtreatment of the skin, but it is a possibility when the skin’s surface is disrupted.
Chemical depilatories (liquids or creams) are often used to remove body hair. These products contain irritating chemicals and can be time-consuming and messy.
Likewise, bleaches contain harsh chemicals and do little to disguise dark hair. They may also discolor skin.
Waxing is another temporary method of hair removal and is usually done in salons. A hot wax is applied to the skin and removed once it has dried over the hair. The hair is stripped off when the wax is removed.
Waxing can be painful and much more expensive in the long run – not just financially, but also in terms of time if you count all the hours you have spent at a salon for waxes over just a few years. Home waxing kits are available but they can be messy and difficult to use, and again, they take time. There are electrolysis devices available for home use, but they are often unsafe, painful and ineffective for use by anyone who is not trained in electrolysis application, growth cycle of the hair, etc.
Most areas of the body can be treated with hair electrolysis, including the eyebrows, face, abdomen, thighs, chest, and legs.
