Electrolysis is suitable for any hair type, skin colour, male or female, as long as there are no contra-indications.
Electrolysis is a form of hair removal that permanently removes unwanted body hair from the root where it is attached to the matrix, and from where the growing hair follicle is fed oxygen and food from the skin’s blood capillaries, allowing the hair to continue growing.
The removal procedure is simple – a small “hair-thin” metal probe is inserted into the hair follicle, and a tiny amount of electricity is delivered to the follicle through the probe. This action destroys the hair follicle completely, if it is in the right stage of hair growth.
Hair growth is a complicated subject and needs to be discussed in detail with a full consultation, before any electrolysis can take place. Electrolysis is not usually a “one-off” treatment, a few treatments usually would be needed, especially if there was a hormonally-induced facial hair growth problem, (normally more common during pregnancy, menopause and after, when women are in their 50’s and 60’s – the Androgen hormones become more prevalent in our bodies at that age.)
Treatment times are usually fifteen minutes long – but it will depend on what the therapist and client discuss together at the consultation.
As this is a very skilled procedure, it is vital not to damage the surrounding skin at the same time as correctly treating the follicle, therefore we cannot stress highly enough the importance of the need for therapists to be registered with the appropriate associations. At Bellissima Beauty we are registered with The British Association of Beauty Therapy & Cosmetology, who are the largest and most experienced association, approving only highly qualified therapists to carry out this sort of work.
At Bellissima Beauty we are also specialise in Advanced Electrolysis, which is the removal of the following:
