4. Are all
hairs eliminated in one treatment or is re-growth to be expected?
Deep, coarse hairs cannot
always be eliminated with one treatment; thus, breaking down the hair germ cells may require additional treatments. During
the course of treatment and due to the cyclic nature of hair growth, new hairs as well as hairs emerging from a dormant phase
will also be treated and may be visible the same time as finer re-growth hairs. The
number of treatments necessary varies with each patient/client Factors
such as hair growth cycles, the quantity and structure of hair presented, previous use of temporary hair removal methods,
heredity, hormone function, normal physiologic changes, certain medications and stress influence the treatment program for
each individual. It is very important to adhere to the recommended treatment schedule to achieve optimum results in the shortest
5. What is the normal growth cycle of a hair?
hairs have differing cycles of growth and are not visible on the surface of the skin at the same time. Hair normally grows
for its usual cycle and then naturally sheds and replaces itself. Following active growing periods, most hair follicles go
into a dormant stage, however, replacement hairs usually appear within 3 to 12 months. The appearance of these coarse replacement
hairs from dormant hair follicles should not be mistaken as re-growth from previously treated follicles.
6. Is Electrolysis
is impossible to destroy hair growth tissue without sensation since its own network of nerve endings surrounds each hair follicle.
The sensation, which may be felt, is assurance that destructive activity is taking place. Even though some parts of the body
are more sensitive than others, adjustments can be made which helps to make the treatment more comfortable.
7. Does Electrolysis have any side effects on the skin?
Immediately following treatment, there may be a slight redness and/or swelling which usually disappears
within a few hours. Occasionally, small whiteheads or tiny scabs may occur. It is important to remember that scabs are a part
of the normal healing process in some people. If scabbing occurs, the client is advised not to pick them off.
8. Can unwanted hair be removed from anywhere on the body?
hair can be safely removed from most body areas. The most common areas include the bridge of nose, eyebrows, upper and lower
lip, cheeks, sideburns, chin, ears, neck, underarms, breasts, abdomen, bikini line, legs, back and chest. The inside of the ears and nose should not be treated.
9. Contemplating the cost of Electrolysis:
When contemplating the cost of Electrolysis, consider what a lifetime
of creams, razors and waxing will cost. Consider, too, the countless hours lost
pursuing a temporary result. Electrolysis is clearly the best and most cost-effective solution. Today's fees are flexible
enough to fit most budgets. Never take chances with your health. Competent, professional service is well worth the cost.
10. Can women begin or continue Electrolysis treatments during pregnancy?
Electrolysis has never been proven harmful to pregnant women, we suggest that you seek the advice of your physician before
11. Can hairs be removed from moles?
State licensing laws and/or liability insurance policies prohibit removal of hair from moles. Your
Electrologist may require written approval from your physician.
