Electrolysis Q & A
What is electrolysis?
Electrolysis is the only treatment option that guarantees permanent hair removal. The results are immediate, so you can enjoy total hairlessness in your targeted areas the very same day. The procedure both removes your current body hair and stops your follicles from growing more in the future.
During your electrolysis procedure at Tchabo MedSpa, your esthetician places a specialized sterile needle directly into each individual follicle, one at a time. They transmit an electrical current through the needle and into the follicle, which destroys it to stop the hair growth process. You might feel a slight sensation, but overall the procedure is painless.
During electrolysis, your skilled esthetician carefully removes the existing hair with a pair of tweezers. You have the choice between a 10-, 20-, or 30-minute procedure, depending on the sizes and number of areas you’re targeting.
Am I a good candidate for electrolysis?
Electrolysis is a popular choice for hair removal because of its permanence and its ability to treat any skin or hair type, including white and blonde hair. Laser hair removal, a comparable option with long-lasting results, traditionally works best for lighter skin with darker hair.
You should attend a quick consultation with Tchabo MedSpa before you plan your electrolysis treatment. They can help you decide if it’s the best option to meet your needs, which areas to target, and how long your session will take.
Which areas can I safely target with electrolysis?
There are no limitations on which areas of your face and body you can treat with electrolysis. A few of the most popular areas are:
- Around the lips
- Bikini line
The ability of electrolysis to safely remove eyebrow hairs sets the treatment apart from laser hair removal, which isn’t safe to perform around the eyes because of the potential for damage from the powerful light.
Will I need multiple electrolysis sessions?
You’ll likely need several electrolysis sessions to achieve complete hairlessness in the areas you choose to target. Not all follicles are in their growth stage at the same time, and attending multiple sessions ensures you capture all of them.
Your esthetician estimates the number of sessions you’ll need during your consultation.
Permanent hair removal allows you to spend far less time and money with shaving, waxing, plucking, and other methods. To try electrolysis and enjoy permanently smooth skin, call Tchabo MedSpa or reserve an appointment online today.
