Electrolysis

Overview: An electrical beam is sent to a vulnerable area in each hair follicle which destroys the follicle permanently. This technique can be used in white, red or dark hair and may be the only permanent option when the first two colors prevail. In dark haired areas with the occasional white hair, electrolysis is often chosen to complete the clean look after laser hair reduction.

Expected results: Permanent removal of hair in all skin and hair colors.

Pretreatment: Hair must not be plucked or waxed for 4 weeks prior to treatment. Hair may be clipped close to the skin level until the evening before the treatment. Bleaching of hair is permitted.

Post treatment instructions: None

Time to desired results: Immediate. Depending on the density of hair, many treatments may be necessary to achieve satisfactory results as each follicle must be treated separately.

Duration of desired effects: Permanent. Periodic maintenance treatment can be added as needed when previously dormant hair follicles are producing hair again.

Contraindications: None

Downtime: None

I cannot think of a thing that would make the visit any better.

The only (minor) thing that I was disappointed in was that when I booked the appt. via phone, I was told that in addition to my cosmetic questions and consult, the Dr. would also be able to do my full body check. It turned out that there was not enough time to do both.
