What you need to know about electrolysis
Electrolysis is the only PERMANENT hair removal system available today. At Absolute Bliss ALL therapists are fully qualified nationally and internationally in electrolysis. A new sterilised disposable needle is used for each treatment. A full and comprehensive consultation will take place before the initial electrolysis session begins. We are only too happy to answer any of your questions.
What is electrolysis?
Electrolysis is the only proven permanent method of hair removal available.
What is involved in an electrolysis treatment?
Your first treatment will involve a consultation with the electrologist. She will determine your type of hair, skin type and take a detailed history of any medications you may be taking and your general health. Once this consultation has taken place your first treatment will begin. The electrologist will ask you to lay down on the bed and make yourself comfortable. The area to be treated will be wiped over with a sanitising product to ensure that the skin is free of oils, makeup and impurities. Your electrologist will always wear disposable gloves at each treatment and a new and disposable probe will always be used to ensure your health and safety. At this time a very fine probe will be inserted into each individual hair follicle at the surface of the skin. A current is applied to the hair to destroy it. The hair is then removed harmlessly with tweezers. At the end of your treatment a soothing product will be applied to your skin and post-care advice given to you before leaving your appointment.
How does electrolysis work?
There are three different kinds of energy used:
1. Galvanic Energy
Galvanic electrolysis works by causing salt and water in the skin around the probe to be chemically altered to produce a small amount of sodium hydroxide, or lye. Lye is the active ingredient in some crystal drain openers. If enough is produced, it can damage the cells that cause hair growth.
2. Thermolysis Energy
Thermolysis works by causing water molecules in the skin around the probe to vibrate, which creates heat. If enough heat is produced, it can damage the cells that cause hair growth.
3. Blend Energy
Blend is a combination of the above two currents used simultaneously.
What causes unwanted hair growth?
Hair growth can be hereditary and/or the result of a change in hormonal levels (such as puberty, pregnancy, menopause, polycystic ovaries, and endometriosis). Also, some medications, temporary methods of hair removal, and illnesses can stimulate hair growth. Your electrologist will determine at your first consultation why you have unwanted hair growth and can plan a treatment regime to remove this hair permanently.
How many electrolysis treatments will I need?
Since many factors influence hair growth, more than one visit is required. The total number of sessions needed to remove hair permanently from a particular area will vary from person to person. Most clients return once a week or every other week to begin with and then on a regular basis until the hair has been successfully removed. Treatments may be booked for either 15 minutes or 30 minutes.
Where can I have electrolysis performed on my body?
Most areas of the body can be treated with electrolysis, including the eyebrows, face, thighs, abdomen, breasts, and legs.
Are there any side effects to electrolysis?
There are no permanent side effects. Sometimes, a slight reddening of the skin occurs during or immediately after treatment, but this will only last for a short time. Electrolysis is very safe and, unlike depilatories or bleaches, no harsh chemicals are used. After your treatment post-care advice will be given to you by your electrologist.
How do I choose an electrologist?
Electrologists are therapists who have undergone professional training. If you are considering undergoing electrolysis, it is very important that you do your research before committing to an appointment. You need to ensure that your electrologist is someone who is professional, well-trained and qualified and puts you at ease before, during and after your appointment. To find out about qualified electrologists:
- Ask your electrologist to show you their formal qualifications. All electrologists at Absolute Bliss are nationally and internationally trained in electrolysis. Donna has been a senior electrolysis tutor at Elite International School of Beauty and Spa Therapies, and is an examiner.
- Ask around. One of the best ways to find any good service is to ask friends and family for recommendations.
- Inquire about a consultation. At Absolute Bliss we offer a free consultation. During the consultation, we will ensure that all of your questions about the procedure are answered.
Your personal comfort is essential to us so that you can be confident in knowing you have made the right decision in choosing our therapists as your electrologist.
