Electrolysis | Laser Plus Skin Care
Excess hair is a frustrating problem, causing emotional stress, low self-image, and other forms of psychological distress. Electrology can facilitate the restoration of the innate confidence and beauty you possess.
Electrolysis uses a low level electrical current to remove hair permanently. The current is delivered to the Dermal Papilla (the source of nourishment for the hair located at the base of the follicle) and the productive organ or matrix of the hair through a very fine sterilized probe inserted into the follicle along the hair shaft. Once the current is applied and the papilla and the reproductive organ/matrix of the hair are destroyed, no further hair growth will occur.
Occasionally, repeated treatments are necessary to achieve permanency, however hair that does return is thinner and less resilient. Once the dermal papilla is completely eliminated, new hair growth from the follicle is absolutely impossible. Tweezing and waxing will remove the hair shaft from the follicle, but will not destroy the life source of the hair, thus return growth is certain.
What is LaserTrolysis™?
We know for a fact that electrolysis is the only true permanent method of Hair Removal and that with several treatments hair can be controlled. A fine filament is inserted along side the follicle and reaches to the mother root of the hair a small amount of alternating frequency is then administered causing the structure to weaken and ceases to feed from tiny vessels below. In the blend technique we use a cataphoresis wand to add metals through the system (this is a positive flow of metals). The presence of metals causes lye in the area of the papilla and that also disrupts the growth.
When laser is added to this modality it is called LaserTrolysis™ by adding extra light frequency we can rid the area of hair especially in a large area! It does depend on the system that you’re using.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can electrolysis damage the skin? Under normal circumstances, skin damage is unlikely. However some slight skin reaction can be expected during the course of the treatment. Do not worry if you experience such manifestations. If the skin reaction persists for an unusual length of time - that period differs for each individual client - consult your electrologist for an analysis.
Is electrolysis painful? Electrolysis does cause some discomfort which is relative to the client's tolerance and area of operation. When a client experiences discomfort adjustments can be made to create a more tolerable treatment.
Is electrolysis dangerous in any way? The amount of electrical current used is infinitesimally small and poses no hazard. Electrolysis is mechanically safe and controlled at every stage of its application.
How many treatments? An electrologist cannot specify how many treatments will be necessary for permanency since every client is unique. There are several factors which contribute to the length of the treatments; the type and extent of hair growth, client tolerance, skin type and frequency of treatments. The electrologist should be able to answer this question more clearly after a review of your case history.
Does the frequency of treatments have bearing on success? The more frequent the treatment, the better the results! Regrowth is most vulnerable when it first reappears. If the hair is not immediately treated, the hair will rebuild its strength and negate the effectiveness of the initial treatment. Therefore it is very important for a client to participate in a planned program of electrolysis.
Is work noticeable after treatment? Immediately following a treatment there is normally a nominal amount of redness and swelling. It disappears only after a short time. An electrologist will give you instructions for appropriate aftercare which should allow you to continue with your normal activities.
