Electrolysis is the ONLY treatment option that’s approved by the FDA for Permanent Hair Removal. Electrolysis is safe and effective for ALL types and colors of skin and hair. Because it works at the follicle level, it’s an “equal opportunity hair remover”. Grey, blond, dark, fuzzy, coarse, ingrown, or any other type of hair can be completely and permanently removed with electrolysis treatment.
Areas most commonly treated for hair removal are as listed:
- Upper/Lower lip
- Bikini lines
Electrolysis requires a series of treatments, some more lengthy than others depending on the individual, and what has been done to the hair before treatment. Results are obtained through a process of elimination.
Is electrolysis something new? Definitely not! Since 1876, medical journals have recorded successful electrolysis treatments.
Where does electrolysis remove hair from? Everywhere, except inside the nose and ear.
How does electrolysis remove hair? A complete description is lengthy and highly technical, but basically the electrologist directs a tiny split-second impulse into the hair root, destroying it instantly so that it may never reproduce another hair. A split-second impulse is a brief passage of electrical current.
Is electrolysis painful? There is slight discomfort to the client. There is no such thing as a totally painless electrolysis.
Is electrolysis really permanent? Yes. Electrolysis is the only permanent way to remove hair. Tweezing, shaving, pumice stone, waxing, and depilatories are all temporary methods and the hair does come back.
If electrolysis is permanent, why does the hair come back after it has been treated?
The secondary growth you see will not be the same hair that has been treated. It takes anywhere from three to ten weeks for hair to grow, and sometimes hairs could lay dormant under the skin for six months before ever appearing on the skin. Each time new hair appears, they will be finer and weaker until they are completely destroyed. Your own attempts to remove the hair has actually stimulated growth.
What is the cause of this unwanted hair? Everyone’s body is different. But it is a known fact that hormones play a big part in hair growth. Tremendous hormonal changes take place during puberty, adolescence, pregnancy, childbirth and menopause. Androgen, which is the male hormone also present in women’s’ bodies, is the main culprit. A glandular irregularity, usually one of the ovaries or adrenals, cause some women to have slightly elevated levels of androgen. This not only stimulates hair growth, it usually coarsens existing hair. Excessive hair growth can also be traced to hereditary background and certain illnesses. Certain types of medications may also be factors.
What should be done about hair that grows in between treatments? Only cutting is advised. Never tweeze or wax, this is only counteracting what your electrologist has done.
How about healing? Healing is generally rapid. Different people have different skin types. Sensitive skin would naturally take a little longer to heal. A temporary redness usually occurs, but will quickly disappear on its own after treatment as directed by your electrologist.

Light Heat Energy (LHE) Hair Removal. LHE treatments are safe and effective. Using a unique combination of light and heat, LHE treatments are clinically proven to remove unwanted hair and keep it that way for a long time. After a series of treatments built around your body’s hair growth cycle, one or two maintenance sessions a year keep your skin smooth, silky, and sensational.
Approximately 80 percent of men and women aged 16 to 60 regularly remove facial and body hair. However, concerns over cost and safety of light-based hair removal treatments have discouraged many potential customers. LHE light-based hair removal answers the needs and concerns of both practitioners and their clients. Its low energy levels create an ultra-safe treatment that requires minimal, if any, preparation or skin cooling. The number of monthly treatments depends on the targeted area, with most areas requiring 7-12 sessions for effective and lasting hair removal.
LHE targets melanin in the hair shaft, and then converts light to heat inside the follicle. The additional heat further elevates the temperature, to reach coagulation temperature at a much lower fluence than conventional IPL devices. Future hair growth is inhibited and often prevented. To bring down the energy levels and increase safety, LHE relies on the synergetic relationship between light and heat to create an efficient photo thermal technique. With its unique light and heat combination, LHE maximizes the heat effect on the follicle without damaging the surrounding tissue.
