FAQ'S AND PROS/CONS
HOW LONG DOES EACH TREATMENT TAKE?
The length of each appointment depends on the amount of hair you want to remove and how many treatments you have already received. A treatment can take anywhere from 5 minutes to an hour or more. Most treatments can be completed during your lunch hour. Your first Electrolysis appointment will probably be the longest.
IS ELECTROLYSIS EXPENSIVE?
No. Electrolysis is very cost effective, when compared to other temporary hair removal methods and Electrolysis is the only permanent hair removing method, FDA Approved.
1. Electrolysis has the best overall results, versus any other method to remove hair permanently.
2. Many different hair and skin types can benefit. Because it doesn't target hair pigment (color) like laser, but attacks the follicle itself. People that aren't good candidates for laser get electrolysis and it safely removes the GRAY hairs too.
1. Bent and curved follicles can make electrolysis hair removal harder. Previous waxing, tweezing or other methods can make hair follicles bent or misshapen, and getting the needle to the root makes more difficult to destroy the follicle.
2. Multiple treatments are needed. You have to be committed to electrolysis because you will need multiple sessions, which will take up a considerable amount of your time.

What Hygiene Practices Do You Follow?
Every client receives a sterile probe at every treatment – probes are never reused. Tweezers are cleaned with an ultrasonic cleaner and sterilized in a medical grade autoclave after each use. Both the probe and tweezers are sealed until we start the treatment. I use a fresh pair of gloves for each client, as well as a new surgical mask each time.
Electrolysis - Permanent Hair Removal
Electrolysis is a method of removing hairs from the face or any part of the body. Today's medical electrolysis device,"a very fine probe is inserted into each hair follicle," destroying the hair root/follicle with chemical or heat energy, releasing heat, than the hair is lifted with the tweezers.
Most areas of the body can be treated with electrolysis, including the eyebrows, face, chin, upper lip, abdomen, thighs, breasts, legs and bikini area.
What Causes Unwanted Hair Growth?
Hair growth is the result of hereditary and or due to hormonal changes. Also, some drugs, temporary methods of hair removal, and illnesses can stimulate hair growth. Electrolysis may be an option when hair growth is in an area of the body where it may not be desired such as on a woman's upper lip, chin, underarm or bikini line and the deep stubborn gray hairs especially on the chin.

What is polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)?
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a health problem that can affect a woman's:
Ability to have children
With PCOS, women typically have:
High levels of androgens.
These are sometimes called male hormones, though females also make them.
Missed or irregular periods.
Many small cysts in their ovaries
Do PCOS symptoms include issues with abnormal hair growth and hair loss in places where we want hair?
Yes. Higher levels of androgens, specifically, testosterone and DHT (dihydrotestosterone) can cause both Hirsuitism (hair growth in abnormal places for women) and male pattern hair loss.
Hirsutism is a condition of unwanted, male-pattern hair growth in women. Hirsutism results in excessive amounts of stiff and pigmented hair on body areas where men typically grow hair, face, chest and back.
In hair loss, the androgen DHT eventually causes the hair follicle to stop growing new hair by clogging the follicle. This condition is called androgenic alopecia. Both of these conditions can be reversed with the right food, movement, nutrients and lifestyle choices.
