Electrolysis

Electrolysis is the only proven method of permanent hair removal.

ElectrolysisOther methods, such as hair removal creams, waxing and threading are temporary as the hair will always grow back.

Electrolysis is a very safe procedure and popular with females for removing upper lip hair, chin hair and hair on the breasts. It can also be used to shape eyebrows and is the only permanent treatment that can remove white and grey hairs.

Electrolysis is also an excellent treatment for ingrowing hair removal in areas such as the bikini line and underarm.

Electrolysis is a very delicate procedure performed under the guidance of a magnifying lamp. A minute sterile needle is inserted into the hair follicle and a small energy current is discharged to cauterise the blood supply that produces the hair.

The beauty of Electrolysis is that it can be used to treat any kind of hair, regardless of colour, density and skin type. It can achieve permanent results and is far more effective than hair removal cream and eyebrow threading.

There are three methods of electrolysis – diathermy, blend and galvanic – all methods are capable of achieving the same result.

Our hair will grow in different stages from growth, rest to shedding. For electrolysis to be effective, the hair must be treated when it is in the growth stage. Individual hairs are never at the same stage at any given time, therefore multiple sessions are usually required to clear an area over a period of time.

When hair removal is needed on larger areas such as the legs or back, Absolute Aesthetics recommend laser hair removal.
