A professional electrologist inserts a very fine needle into the natural opening of the hair follicle alongside the hair shaft. A tiny amount of electrical current is then applied to destroy the hair growth cells. This current also helps to separate the hair from its root. The hair is then gently glided out and removed.
The different types of modalities that can be used:
The machine used is called an epilator. It can destroy the hair growth cells using 3 methods (modalities) of energy. All are effective. The 3 modalities in current use are:
Galvanic electrolysis is a chemical process. The current produces a chemical reaction in the hair follicle eliminating the hair growth cells.
Thermolysis (also called short-wave) produces heat. This modality heats and destroys the hair growth cells in the follicle.
Blend combines galvanic current with thermolysis current. Thermolysis heats up the chemical reaction in the follicle destroying hair growth cells.
The electrologist will choose 1 of the 3 modalities based on a personal and confidential consultation, and will design a treatment plan that addresses your specific hair removal needs.
When will you see results?
Depending on the area you want cleared, it could be a few minutes for a followup appointment or up to an hour for a larger area. Most people who follow the recommended treatment plan can expect to be completed or nearly completed within 6 to 18 months. Factors such as hair growth cycles, the quantity and structure of hair presented, previous use of temporary hair removal methods, heredity, hormone function, certain medications and stress influence the treatment program for each individual.
Excessive hair growth can range from fine, vellus hair to dark, coarse hair on the face and body. Deep, coarse hairs will be more resistant to the breaking down of hair growth cells versus finer hair and may require more treatments.
