Electrolysis is a permanent method of removing individual hairs from the face or body. A very fine probe is inserted down into the hair follicle, a mild current is then released into the follicle. The hair is removed with tweezers. The heat generated from the current disables the follicle to prevent new hair growth. Electrolyis is a great alternative for hair that cannot be treated with IPL or laser e.g. hair with no pigment
Most areas of the body can be treated with electrolysis, including the eyebrows, face, neck, nipple area and abdomen.
