Electrolysis

Electrolysis is our specialty; with nearly two decades of experience we understand hair and how to get rid of it. With each new treatment, we always use a new sterile needle and sterile tweezers. We have the advantage of a Carl Zeiss microscope that allows for accurate insertions in even the finest, lightest hairs with ease. Electrolysis and Laser treatments are often combined for optimal results. Laser will reduce the number of hairs in a large area more quickly, and electrolysis can eliminate fine stragglers that lack colour for laser. Electrolysis is great for fine tuning of delicate areas such as eyebrows.

    How Does Electrolysis Work?

    Electrolysis was first introduced in 1875. An electrolysis treatment involves the insertion of a sterile probe, the same size as the hair, into the hair follicle opening down to the dermal papilla. The dermal papilla is the electrologist's target. It is the part of the follicle that contains blood and nerves and feeds the growing hair. If the papilla and regenerative cells surrounding it are destroyed, the hair will die. When the probe is in place a low-level electrical current is applied that will destroy the papilla and surrounding cells and loosen the hair in the follicle. The hair is then removed.

    What are the Different Methods of Electrolysis?

    The American Medical Association has recognized only three methods of permanent hair removal. Thermolysis, Galvanic Electrolysis, and the Blend.

    Thermolysis is a method that uses a frequency current to produce heat in the area influenced by the current. This heat cauterizes and destroys the dermal papilla. When it is eliminated, the hair cannot live.

    Galvanic Electrolysis is a chemical method that utilizes a direct current to convert normal body salt and water in the hair follicle into a compound capable of destroying the dermal papilla.

    Blend is a combination of both currents together in the same probe. Thermolysis enhances the action of the galvanic method to produce a faster process.

    As your electrologist, I will choose the best and most effective method for you based on your hair type, skin characteristics, and sensitivity. My choice will assure you of maximum comfort and permanency in solving your hair problem.

    What Causes Unwanted Hair?

    Major factors contribute to the growth of excess hair:

    • Heredity
    • Racial Characteristics
    • Glandular Disturbances: thyroid, polycystic ovaries, overactive adrenal glands etc.
    • Medication
    • Topical Influences
    • Stress

    Puberty, pregnancy, and menopause can also cause excess hair growth. During the normal systemic changes in a woman's life, hormone production varies. It is not uncommon for hormones during these times to be unbalanced. Increased male hormones (androgens) can be present which may result in a male pattern of hair growth. When a hormonal imbalance is suspected you will be encouraged to see your doctor for blood tests that may help to determine the source of the imbalance. Electrolysis can eliminate existing hair but it cannot stop new hairs from growing

    POST-TREATMENT CARE

    • Keep the area cool and clean. Avoid anything too hot.
    • Do not aggravate the skin with vigorous washing or touching with unclean hands.
    • Using clean cotton balls, swab the area with astringent.
    • Cover the area treated with appropriate sunscreen if exposed to sun light.
    • Should pustules and/or crusts appear, do not pick them. Bactroban or Polysporin is recommended to prevent infection. Call THE LASER CLINIC® any time if there are any concerns 905 850-7546(SKIN) or 877 LASER US.
