What is Electrolysis?

This is a method for removing hair that was originally developed over 100 years ago to remove in-grown eyelashes. Since then, electrolysis procedures have been used to remove hair from other parts of the body.

There are three types of electrolysis: galvanic, thermolysis, and blended. Galvanic is the oldest type and dates back to the late 19th century. In thermolysis, the needle delivers radio energy that heats up the follicle and destroys it. Thermolysis is quicker than galvanic electrolysis, but it is not as effective at removing coarse hair. Blended electrolysis is the newest kind of electrolysis and combines the other two types, but it still comes with many downsides.

You see, during electrolysis, the electrologist will insert a fine and needle-like probe into the hair follicle. The probe will emit electricity or radio energy to destroy it. The electrologist will then remove the hair with a pair of tweezers.

Electrolysis can take quite a while. A single session can take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. The most common side effect is a reddening of the skin. Swelling and discomfort can also develop.
