Electrolysis (in Westbury on Trym salon and Yate only)

Electrolysis provides permanent Hair removal for both Men and Women and is ideal for people who are not suitable candidates for Laser/IPL. Treatments are usually taken in 15-minute, 30-minute or 1-hour sessions depending on the amount of hair to be treated. We use either the Blend method which is a dual action which entails the use of galvanic and low intensity high frequency currents or diathermy which is high frequency electric current.

Unwanted hair is a common problem affecting most women to varying degrees throughout their lives and prompting the use of various temporary methods of hair reduction or hair managements systems. However Electrolysis is still the only proven permanent method of hair removal and many women and also men have benefitted from this tried and trusted treatment.

What is Electrolysis?
Electrolysis is a safe, effective, progressive and permanent method of hair removing unwanted hair. It is the only truly permanent method of hair removal and is a treatment that is in great demand.

With the choice of three methods that are currently available – Galvanic, Diathermy and Blend – there is a treatment that is “tailor made” to suit you.

How Does Electrolysis Work?
A fine probe about the size of an eyelash is inserted into the hair follicle where a tiny burst of energy is targeted at the hair root. This prevents nutrients feeding the hair and it becomes weaker and finer. After repeated treatments the hair is no longer able to grow and completely hair-free results are obtained.

Each hair requires repeated treatment because each individual hair has its own blood supply and growing cycle. Electrolysis works by weakening the hair and eventually destroying it. Results take a little time but they are progressive and permanent.

Is Electrolysis Safe?
Electrolysis was first invented in 1875 and has been proven effective and totally safe. Advancing technology has meant that Electrolysis has become more gentle and comfortable, even more effective. It remains an affordable, modern treatment which is becoming increasingly popular as people become disillusioned with other methods of hair removal which are promoted as being permanent.

What happens during the first appointment?
You will have a thorough consultation to ensure that the treatment is suitable and which method is best for you. You will have a chance to ask any questions that you may have about the treatment and your therapist will discuss a treatment plan with you.

What about hygiene?
Disposable Sterex probes are used to totally eliminate any risk of cross-infection between clients. For each client a brand new sterile probe is used and you will see the individually packed sterile probe opened in front of you.
