Electrolysis Hair Removal

The ONLY medically approved form of permanent hair removal

electrolysis Hair Removal can permanently remove hair

Electrolysis is the only medically approved form of permanent hair removal.

Electrolysis is a course of treatment that permanently removes hair growth when performed by skilled and experienced practitioners (like us!).

Electrolysis has the longest known track record together with the most effective results for permanent hair removal. Dr Charles Michel first used it successfully in 1875 to remove ingrown eyelashes. He discovered that once the follicle had been treated with electrolysis the hair was permanently destroyed.

electrolysis can safely remove all hair types

For over 100 years, electrolysis has been recognised as a safe, reliable method of treating all skin and hair types. Many new treatments for hair reduction or non-permanent hair removal have emerged over the years; electrolysis has remained the only treatment to achieve permanent and complete eradication of unwanted hair when performed by a skilled, experienced practitioner.
For those who seek complete and permanent hair removal on any part of the body, regardless of skin tone or hair colour, there remains only one method that is approved by the British Medical Association – electrolysis.

Electrolysis can be adapted to suit your hair

Electrolysis hair removal involves the insertion of a very fine, disposable, sterile probe (the same diameter as the hair) into the hair follicle, which is a natural opening in the skin. A tiny amount of energy is then skilfully discharged into the hair follicle. This is one type of treatment, where the skill of the therapist can really make a difference to the results achieved. The British Institute & Association of Electrolysis (BIAE) lists professional Electrolysists in the UK and is where you can find fully qualified Electrolysists near you.

Does it hurt? 

The only sensation felt by the client is heat passing down the probe to the base of the follicle. The follicle destruction is achieved by heat (with thermolysis) or a chemical reaction (with galvanic) or both blended together (with the blend). If carried out by a skilled and qualified therapist, the pain felt is minimal.

The treatment can be adapted to suit each client’s skin, hair and pain threshold.
During a course of treatments there will be a constant, gradual decrease in the growth of the hair until it has all been permanently removed. The number of treatments required will vary from person to person and will be discussed at the initial consultation and it is important to remember that this is a long term treatment plan.

Electrolysis can be used on any part of the body for hair removal

Electrolysis can be used on any part of the body. No type or volume of body hair is too stubborn for treatment and no body part too embarrassing. Treatment areas include all facial areas, legs, bikini line, chest, nipples, back, abdomen, underarms, fingers, toes and eye brows. And also treat transgender clients, removing intimate body hair prior to surgery.
The first sign that electrolysis treatment is working is that the hair growth becomes softer, finer and lighter in colour. You will see and feel the difference throughout the course of treatment, so you do not have to wait until the end of your course to see a difference.

Following treatment clients will be given strict aftercare instructions to adhere to in order to support the electrolysis treatment.

Consultation Procedure

Before your treatment can commence, we'll have a thorough consultation together, in which your medical history is taken to confirm suitability for your treatment and your chance for any questions that you may have to be answered. Before your treatment begins you must also provide written consent and a small test patch will be carried out, for your safety.
