Electrolysis for Hair Removal

Electrolysis is a method of removing individual hairs from the face or body. It is the only treatment of hair removal considered to be and legally allowed to be described as permanent

Today’s medical electrolysis devices destroy the growth centre of the hair with chemical or heat energy. After a very fine probe is inserted into the hair follicle, the hair is removed with tweezers.

Which areas can be treated with electrolysis?

Virtually any area, apart from the inside of the nose and inner ear. (The rim of the ear can be safely treated.)

Common areas for woman are facial areas, (top lip, chin, neck, cheeks, eyebrows) breasts, abdomen, underarms, bikini line, legs, fingers and toes.

Common areas for men are the upper arms, around the ears, top of the nose, eyebrows, top of the back, cheeks above the line of the beard, around the edges of the beard and any areas where ingrown hairs are causing problems.

Advanced Cosmetic Procedures (ACP)

These treatments using electrolysis are becoming increasingly popular as knowledge about treatments increases.

A wide diversity of vascular and fibrous skin blemishes can be quickly and easily treated with Advanced Electrology.  These include warts, skintags, verrucae, blood spots, moles and much more.  Results are very effective and often immediate, offering a blemish free smooth skin.

The treatments that ACP can provide is vast and varied using a mix of thermocoagulation and cauterisation, diathermy and galvanic currents along with differing probe choices and settings dependent on the task in hand.  Various techniques will be used to either lift off the problem, shrink it, or eradicate it.

A full consultation will be required initially and we must check for any contra-indications.  If needs be, with some treatments such as mole reduction, we will obtain GP confirmation that it is safe to proceed.

Treatments are carried out by a fully qualified Electrologist.
