What is electrolysis?

Electrology is the science being used since 1875 of permanent hair removalState-of-the-art technology has vastly improved the procedure.  However, the basic philosophy remains: treating the hair follicle one-by-one to eliminate the germinating cells responsible for hair growth.

How do you accomplish electrolysis?

The individual hair follicle is being treated by inserting a very fine probe into its natural opening. A small amount of chemical or heat energy is then applied to destroy the hair growth cells.  This process destroys the regenerative ability of the hair follicle thus permanently eliminating the ability of the hair to grow.  Each hair follicle requires several treatments to completely destroy the potential for hair regrowth.  However, each individual is different and results vary.

Electrolysis has 3 different modalities.  

Each modality is equally effective for destroying hair growth cells.

  • Galvanic is a chemical process.
    • The electric current causes the skin’s salt and water to breakdown and produce lye causing a chemical reaction in the hair follicle eliminating the hair growth cells.
  • Thermolysis or short-wave produces heat.  
    • It deprives the germinating cells of needed moisture.
  • The blend method combines galvanic current with thermolysis current.
    • Thermolysis heats up the chemical reaction in the follicle destroying hair growth cells.
